In Nashville: Good Deal! Doc Watson


Catalogue Id:
VMD 79276

The Deep Gap, Carolina, guitar genius DOC WATSON made his eponymous solo debut for Vanguard and went on to become the most famous old-time music and acoustic country musician of them all. His effortless guitar flatpicking of fiddle tunes - check out Blackberry Rag - has made a major contribution to bluegrass and associated music styles and acted as an important direct influence on the approach of guitarists like Clarence White and Dan Crary. Doc's relaxed, bluesy, Delmore Brothers-influenced singing and outstanding guitar picking was showcased on his folk recordings but transfers well to these excellent 1968 Nashville sides. Accompanied by his son, (the late) Merle Watson, and a crack session outfit featuring, amongst others, guitarist Grady Martin, banjo picker Don Stover, fiddlers Buddy Spicher and Tommy Jackson, pianist Floyd Cramer and dobro picker Shot Jackson, Doc delivers a roots-driven Nashville sound.
