DOC WATSON - SOUTHBOUND - CD
The Vanguard recordings of Doc Watson are to folk music what the Carter Family is to country. Through a vigorous touring and recording schedule in the '60s, Doc introduced millions to songs that have since become standards for artists like Bob Dylan, Richard Buckner, and Gillian Welch. Here Doc puts on a clinic as a composer and player. Songs like "Blue Railroad Train," "Last Thing on My Mind," and the immortal "Tennessee Stud" offer particularly strong examples of Watson's flash flood flat picking and understated, colloquial singing, not to mention his interpretive skills. Nor should his son Merle's contribution be overlooked. --Roy Francis Kasten

Brand: SONGS OF THE CIVIL WAR
Inspired by the successful Civil War documentary from Ken Burns, this powerful soundtrack tackles many diverse musical styles from traditional folk and bluegrass to black gospel and outlaw country.
Prompted by the success Ken Burns's popular Civil War documentary (which spawned its own soundtrack), Songs of the Civil War presents an eclectic assortment of contemporary performers tackling period pieces that date back to the War Between the States. Here's Sweet Honey in the Rock tackling the slave lament "No More Auction Block for Me," Judy Collins singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and Kate and Anna McGarrigle essaying the lovely (and very suitable) "Hard Times Come Again No More." Between performances by name artists (Kathy Mattea, Waylon Jennings, and Richie Havens among them), instrumentals performed by the U.S. Military Academy Band provide a sense of time and place. --Steven Stolder

DOC WATSON - BEST OF: 1964-1968 (PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS) - CD
Few musicians are as adept as Doc Watson is at making the remarkable seem routine. Song after song on this 23-track label retrospective demonstrates effortless flat-picking virtuosity. Listen to the fleet, precise picking on "Beaumont Rag," and you'll immediately recognize why the North Carolinian's skills are the envy of just about anyone who's ever tried to master folk guitar. Yet his plainspoken baritone vocals on "Tennessee Stud," "Shady Grove," "Little Sadie," and others speak of his devotion to his songs. Watson in his prime could play rings around just about any picker alive, but he's never gone in for hollow showboating. Culled from six of the nine albums Watson recorded for Vanguard between 1964 and 1971 (though the most recent inclusions here are from 1968), this album is a condensed alternative to the four-disc Vanguard Years box set. Four previously unreleased tunes add to the value of this worthy intro to an American master. --Steven Stolder

|Will The Circle Be Unbroken - The Trilogy
Lowest new price: $28.66
Lowest used price: $28.65
2002 brought the final release of the Dirt Band's incredible Will the Circle Be Unbroken trilogy and also brought together the band and a bevy of country stars to celebrate these historic collaborations. That PBS event is here on DVD (with Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss, Earl Scruggs and more) plus 6 CDs comprising all three Unbroken volumes. Scores of amazing performances, one amazing set.
The original Will the Circle Be Unbroken is undoubtedly a landmark country-music recording. A peace offering between rock-reared longhairs and rock-ribbed Nashville patriarchs (and one matriarch, Mother Maybelle Carter), it exposed generations of upstart pickers and singers to old-time country music and its impact is felt to this day. The organizers of the 1971 sessions that led to the initial three-LP set, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, have produced two sequels, the first in 1989 and the most recent in 2002. This six-disc collection (including an all-star concert DVD) pulls together all three Circle sessions and, naturally, captures dozens of essential performances, plus a fair number of inessentials. Anyone with an interest in country music will want the original. Its mission is clear, the performances are inspired, and its significance is undeniable. The second Circle strays far afield from the original concept, bringing in the rather lightweight likes of John Denver and Michael Martin Murphy to mix with volume one holdovers Jimmy Martin and Earl Scruggs. The final volume is also more diffuse than one would like, though eminent guest stars such as Del McCoury, June Carter Cash, and Johnny Cash help it capture the spirit of the original more frequently than does its immediate predecessor. Completists will relish having all three collections in one box, while those who think three times around the circle is two too many are advised to stick with the 30th anniversary reissue of the initial album. --Steven Stolder

|Doc & Dawg
Lowest new price: $10.97
Lowest used price: $2.69
This new acoustic classic captures the up-scale artistry and down-home ambience of 2 masters of the American folk idiom. Special guests include Jack Lawrence, Curly Sechler, Stuart Duncan, Alan O'Bryant and James Kerwin. Highlights: "Summertime," "Bluegrass Stomp," "Kentucky Waltz," "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Frankie And Johnny" and much more.
Since a young David Grisman joined a newly discovered Doc Watson on the stage of Gerde's Folk City in 1962, the two have made indelible marks in the realm of acoustic music. Watson has attached his ripe vocals and fleet flatpicked guitar to traditional, old-time, and bluegrass; Grisman has blended a variety of traditional styles to form a progressive one. This cozy, comfortable record culls 14 songs recorded at an assortment of relaxed, informal, after-dinner sessions at Grisman's studio. As it moves from Jimmie Rodgers to Bill Monroe to jazz standards to traditional blues to rippling fiddle tunes, the record beautifully illustrates where the common ground lies. Most of all, the album exudes a passion and respect for the songs at hand; the superb picking (whether brisk or leisurely) is merely gravy. --Marc Greilsamer
