Doc & Merle Watson - Two Days In November Two Days In November
Bluegrass New - LP PP-LA210-G Poppy
Sealed 1974 Original. Pristine Copy. “The Title Two Days In November (1974) Refers To The Length Of Time It Took To Document This Ten-Track Album. However, That Certainly Didn't Deter It From Scoring A Grammy For Best Ethnic Or Traditional Recording -- The Duo's Second In As Many Years. Doc Watson's Amplified Approach To Traditional Melodies As Well As The Reworking Of Cover Material Is Decidedly Modern, Yet The Interpretations Directly Hark Back To Their Acoustic Counterparts With Sides Such As The Talking Blues Of "Walk On Boy," Also Recorded By A Wide Range Of Talents Including The Blue-Eyed Doo Wop Of The Belmonts To The Song's Co-Author, Mel Tillis. The Hot-Steppin' Good-Time Rag "Kinfolks In Carolina" Has Been Gleefully Adapted From One Of The Senior Watson's Most Revered Contemporaries, Merle Travis. Precise Picking From Both Men Often Weave Seemingly Effortless Dual Leads, Such As The Breakneck Speed Of "The Train That Carried My Girl From Town" Or The Sunny Disposition Of "Doc's Rag." Several Of The Musicians From This Long-Player Also Contributed To The Previous Grammy Winner Then And Now (1973), Including Jim Isbel (Drums/Percussion), Joe Allen (Bass), Kenny Malone (Percussion), And Chuck Cochran (Piano). Seasoned As Well As Developing Enthusiasts Of Bluegrass, Newgrass, Traditional Country, And Americana Agree That Doc & Merle Watson Developed And Created Some Of Their Finest Music In The Early To Mid-'70s -- Many, Like Two Days In November, Were Initially Only Available On The Regional Poppy Records Label. This Meant That The International Circulation Was Practically Unheard Of. Highly Recommended For Inclined Parties.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details

Doc & Merle Watson - Then And Now Then And Now
Bluegrass New - LP PP-LA022-F Poppy
Sealed And Pristine 1973 Original. “Their Somewhat Stylized Selection Of Material Is Derived Not Only From The Traditional Genres, But Also From The Watsons' Native Southeastern United States And Its Rich Piedmont Blues Heritage. Then And Now (1973) Features The Watsons' Distinct Reworkings On A Variety Of Material, Including Tom Paxton's "Bottle Of Wine," Townes Van Zandt's "If I Needed You," And Merle Travis' Classic "That's All." Doc's Sly Yet Understated Homespun Wit Surfaces On The Latter As The Eldest Watson Indicates That The Lyrics Make "Just Plain Ol' Common Horse Sense." The Same Straight-Ahead No-Frills And (Best Of All) Gimmick-Free Musicianship Accompanies Their Contemporary Approach On The Traditional "Corrina, Corrina," Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Match Box Blues," And Kokomo Arnold's "Milk Cow Blues." These Cuts Boast The Pair's Unique And Spry Personas, Likewise Underscoring Their Infectious And Genuine Musicality. Doc (Guitar/Harmonica/Vocals) And Merle (Guitar/Banjo) Are Augmented By An Impressive Lineup Of Support Musicians, Including Norman Blake (Dobro), Vassar Clements (Fiddle), Kenny Malone (Percussion), And Joe Allen (Bass). Collectively, They Animate The Tracks With Upbeat And Thoroughly Modern Personas -- Intimating The "Now" Of The Title. Representing "Then" Are The More Authentic Instrumental Renderings Of "Bonaparte's Retreat" And "Rain Crow Bill." These Two Titles Perhaps Best Exemplify The Indescribable Blend Of Doc's Amiable, Richly Toned Fretwork As It Connects The Sonic Dots Between Merle's Equally Fluid And Exceedingly Intricate Acoustic Slide As Well As Finger-Style And Flat-Pick Guitar. The Results Are Uniformly Brilliant, Garnering Then And Now A Grammy For Best Ethnic Or Traditional Recording.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details
