Product Description This set contains two albums, plus a full 20 unreleased tracks and a 34-page booklet. Amazon.com When blind singer/guitarist Arthel "Doc" Watson was "discovered" by folklorist Ralph Rinzler in 1960 he sounded as though he'd been picking for a hundred years, not to mention the fact that his huge repertoire of old songs seemed like it could go on for days. Watson had actually been playing in a honky-tonk band when Rinzler came across him in Deep Gap, North Carolina. When he asked Doc to set down his electric guitar he created one of the first--and most lasting--stars of the folk revival. Ashley was already a mountain music legend himself when he cut these front-porch sessions; picking a fine banjo and singing along on one standard--like "Shady Grove" and "Peg and Awl"--after another. --Michael Ruby Review 2004 Grammy "Lifetime Achievement" Award recipient --"...folk singer Ella Jenkins has been a cornerstone of children's music." -- The Grammys, Feb 8, 2004 2004 Grammy "Lifetime Achievement" Award recipient --"Doc Watson is one of the most influential folk/country guitar players of our time." -- The Grammys, Feb 8, 2004 See more
