  • $13.50


This excellent 23-track compilation just serves to remind us not only of Watson's huge & wonderful talent, but also his amazingly extensive recorded repertoire. Watson is still going strong, yet in just a four year span(his Vanguard years) there is enough great music to define an entire career. The material here is sampled from 6 of his Vanguard LPs with the bonus of 4 previosly unissued performances. We would say that someome has chosen the cuts beaufifully, but in fact Watson's performances are so consistantly strong that it would be hard to complile anything approaching a weak album. There is a steady stream here of superb songs & tunes that Watson has made classic, most from the old time tradition.
