Doc & Merle Watson: Songs Doc Didn't Sing (CD)

(FLI Records) 15 tracks (38:49) originally released on Flying Fish Records 1981-1985. Digisleeve

A superb set of instrumental tunes from Doc Watson, the man who forever changed the way guitar is played, and his sterling sidekick, son Merle Watson. Doc was a legendary performer who blended his traditional Appalachian musical roots with bluegrass, country, gospel and blues to create a unique style and an expansive repertoire. Doc tears through fiddle tunes like "Down Yonder," "Sheeps in the Meadow" and his signature "Black Mountain Rag." Merle leans more towards blues, and his slide playing is superb on the likes of "John Henry" and "Talking to Casey." The duo also touches base with swing ("Liza / Lady Be Good"), polka ("Guitar Polka") and take an unlikely romp through "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

As President Bill Clinton said, in awarding the National Medal of Arts, "There may not be a serious, committed baby boomer alive who didn't at some point in his or her youth spend a few minutes at least trying to learn to pick a guitar like Doc Watson." Doc & Merle were at the height of their powers in the early 1980s, when these were first recorded. About half of Doc's 7 Grammys, including his Grammy for Lifetime Achievement, were in his future. But soon after these recordings, Merle's future was tragically cut short in a fatal tractor accident. Songs Doc Didn't Sing is essential listening for guitarists and aspiring guitarists of all persuasions.

Doc Watson

Geb. 2. 3. 1923 in Deep Gap - North Carolina

Record Labels: Folkways, Vanguard, Poppy, United Artists, Flying Fish, L+R, Sugar Hill

Erster Hit: Bottle Of Wine (1973)

Arthel Doc Watson, ein blinder Sänger, Banjo- und Gitarrenvirtuose, wurde durch die Volksmusik seiner engeren Heimat und die Country Music der 30er und 40er Jahre geprägt. Auf der Gitarre hatte er einen unverwechselbaren Finger-Picking-Stil entwickelt, der ihn bei den Folk Festivals der 60er und 70er Jahre rasch zum Favoriten des meist jugendlichen Publikums werden ließ. Impulse für diese Spielweise auf der Gitarre hatte Doc Watson von seinem großen Vorbild Merle Travis bezogen und hatte folgerichtig dann auch seinem Sohn den Namen Merle gegeben, Merle Watson, der in die Fußstapfen seines Vaters trat und bei den meisten Schallplattenaufnahmen und Konzerten auch mit dabei war. Wichtige Stilmittel in der Musik von Doc und Merle Watson, der Swing und der Blues.
