DOC & MERLE WATSON 'Sittin' Here Pickin' The Blues'

  • $13.50


Doc Watson has always been at home with the Blues and with his late son Merle he put down plenty of great music in this genre (Sugar Hill already has a fine album of the same theme but different recordings). The 20 songs here originally appeared on the Flying Fish label (now owned by Rounder). Twelve of the tracks are from the Pickin’ The Blues LP (FF-0352), and these are supplemented with another 7 cuts from Doc’s other two LPs for Flying Fish (The 20th song is from a Telluride Festival LP). Sam Bush and Mark O’Connor help out on some cuts. Doc & Merle really get into it and they do a great job. Fine stuff, Recommended.
