BILL MONROE & DOC WATSON 'Live Duet Recordings' SF-40064-CD

Add To Wishlist

These two giants of rural southern music first performed together in 1963 at shows at Los Angeles' Ash Grove and New York City's Town Hall, exciting their many fans with their memorable mandolin and guitar duets. Over the years they have performed together a number of times and this disc is made up of 17 performances at various locations from the first Ash Grove show in 1963 to a 1980 appearance at the White House. Some of this material appeared on a rare bootleg LP many years ago, but at last we have a legitimate and carefully done issue that is a must for fans of both these legends. Ralph Rinzler has done a great job in compiling and annotating this superb collection that includes fiddle tunes, bluesy instrumentals and recreations of the classic Monroe Brothers duets of the 1930s.

County Sales Staff Review:

17 live duet performances by two giants of American roots music - need I say more? Well, I will, mainly because I have been so excited about this album since I came across it at County Sales a few years ago and my enthusiasm certainly hasn’t faded. Bill Monroe and Doc Watson are two of the greatest to ever pick and sing, and their influence in bluegrass and folk music circles is immeasurable. To hear them play and sing together in a duet setting is a rare treat!...
