Product Description

Product Description

Doc's seamless blending of country, folk, bluegrass, gospel, pop and blues is the complete embodiment of American music. Though Doc has recorded a couple of blues-specific albums before, "Trouble In Mind" is the first career retrospective to highlight this often overlooked foundation of his trademark sound. Though you can't pigeonhole Doc as a stylist in any one given genre, "Trouble In Mind" makes the convincing case that Doc's music is as informed by the blues as it is by any other form of music. It also definitively places Doc within the vaunted ranks of other country/acoustic/folk blues titans such Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davies, Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Bill Broonzy. Following on in the highly successful wake of "Foundation - The Doc Watson Guitar Instrumental Collection" (SHCD3916), the second part of this career retrospective series, "Trouble In Mind", is sure to appeal to blues fans as much as it does his core bluegrass and folk audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Compilation of Doc's Songs 23 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of songs by Doc Watson. It's gleaned from quite a fewother albums. Doc sings and performs in what could be categorised asseveral different styles: blues, old-time, fiddle tunes, gospel and more.This compilation focusses on one particular style: country blues. Somecompilations can feel like they've just been thrown together. This onedoesn't. It feels like someone who actually cares put it together. It'svery representative of his work and it's good and chunky. If you'vealready got lots of Doc's work then maybe there's not likely to be muchnew here. But it might still be worth buying just as a great CD. If you'relooking for a cross section of Doc's work then this is well worth it.There's also a companion 'tunes only' album and together they are a reallygood set.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a gift of music Doc Watson left us. 25 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was so sad when Doc Watson died, but he left behind him the gift of his wonderful music. I never tire of listening to him. It's worth listening to his music and song, and then you may be tempted to buy his discs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Country blues from a master 8 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've had this CD for a while now, and it's been running on my car stereo almost every day. Doc Watson is a very accomplished musician, not only as a guitarist. His singing is very fine, his warm baritone is well suited for the blues, and he yodels just as good as Jimmie Rodgers or Merle Haggard. As a guitar player he has few peers. He has developed his flatpickin' style into an art form, a level of mastery where everything seems or sounds easy, until you try it yourself! There are noe weak tunes on this albums, with a possible exception of Spikedriver blues, which to me sounds a bit too laidback. My favorites at this point are Deep River Blues (masterful picking!), Lost John (shows how good he is on the harmonica, too), Little Sadie (grim murder ballad, which Johnny Cash must have modeled his Cocaine Blues on!). There are others, too, deserving to be mentioned. Buy and listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doc Watson As Blues Musician 22 Jun 2005
By Steve Vrana - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These 17 tracks are drawn from ten albums Doc Watson recorded for Vanguard and Sugar Hill between 1964 and 1998. It is somewhat curious that while Watson recorded eleven albums for Sugar Hill, only four tracks from three of those albums are included here. Perhaps it is because the compilers are selecting the songs to showcase Watson's skills as a country blues artist.

On a handful of these songs, Watson performs solo, like on "Sitting on Top of the World," "My Little Woman, You're So Sweet," "Georgia Buck" and "Anniversary Blues." In addition to being an accomplished guitar picker, Watson is a fine banjo player. He performs solo on the opener "Country Blues." He also plays harmonica on the instrumental "Rain Crow Bill."

On most of the rest of the tracks, he is accompanied by his son Merle, who was a fine guitar player and banjo picker in his own right. [Tragically, Merle was killed in a farming accident in 1985.]

Most of these songs are traditional, but Watson also covers songs by the Delmore Brothers ("Gambler's Yodel"), Jimmie Rodgers ("Anniversary Blues") and Mississippi John Hurt (Spikedriver Blues"), the latter a showcase for Merle's guitar prowess.

All told, this is a very satisfying album and a terrific introduction to one aspect of Doc Watson's career. [Playing Time - 46:14] VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5.0 out of 5 stars Doc Watson is an Amazing Talent! 30 Oct 2007
By Rita Reader - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first fell in love with Doc Watson when I got the 'Songcatcher Two' CD. This I got as a gift for my husband because he loves blues, and I love it too. Doc Watson's voice is one of a kind and his command of so many instruments impressive. If you love blues, this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doc & his guitar... 14 Sep 2003
By Zardock - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album has that nice warm bluegrass feeling to it, with some cuts recorded to live audience (though they sound as clear as studio), that makes it sound like you've had this album for ages. Above all, I love Doc's guitar playing. It's bluesy, and yet goes beyond the standard 12 bar progression. If you've never heard Doc play, clapton on unplugged sounds somewhat similar. Not all of the songs on this albums are absolute gems, but those that are (sittin on top of the world, man that song is awesome, or deep river blues) make up for everything.
