Trouble In Mind: The Doc Watson Country Blues Coll&hellip ~ Doc Watson
9 of 9 people found the following review helpful
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… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy the other one, 31 Mar 2004
This is not a bad book. But Amadea Morningstar's first Ayurvedic Cookbook is a classic. It's brilliant. This tries to do a similar thing but to "westernise" the food and to me it just doesn't work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Prine, 31 Mar 2004
This is a classic John Prine Album. It's a bunch of well written songs full of wry observations of life and love. That's what he does best and that's what he does here. It's as good as any of the rest of his work. So if you like John Prine, this is well worth buying. If you don't know John Prine, then I'd not start here but maybe with "Souvenirs" which is a re-recording of a cross section of his work. Then, if you like that, come back and get this and Lost Dogs and John Prine and In Spite of Ourselves and learn just how good and just how undervalued John Prine really is.
