Country / Folk legend Doc and son Merle Watson's homage to the scratchy blues 78's that made an impression on the elder Watson during his boyhood in North Carolina. With Doc on flat-top and vocals, Merle chimes in on slide guitar to deliver a collection of true country blues. Accompanied by longtime bassist T. Michael Coleman and the brilliant multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush, this 1985 recording, originally released by Flying Fish, transfers all the rich, deep wooden tones of the acoustic instruments. Highlights include: Mississippi Heavy-Water Blues, St. Louis Blues, Warm and Windy, a fine and most unique treatment of Stormy Weather, plus eight others. Flying Fish 352.
