Format: Audio CD
This album from Doc Watson is a wonderful mixture of religious (Born about six thousand tears ago', Talk about suffering'), folk (St James' Hospital, Tom Dooley), comic and children's ballads ('Intoxicated rat') alongside some breathtakingly fast guitar instrumental pieces (Doc's guitar', 'Black mountain rag'). Doc is one of those rare musicians who can mix both cheerful and sad music on one album without any particular mood dominating the listeners' impressions. The impression left with me is that I have just listened to some fantastic and priceless music. Historically this is an important album in the genre of country music and of all music.

I'm not sure at all that this is the best compliation of Doc Watson. Sounds to me like someone just put together a seet of old recordings and said that will do. So I will need to keep looking for some recordings that are better made and perhaps a little more modern.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doc's first solo LP 21 Feb. 2005
By Anthony Spadaro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I think every guitarist I knew bought this record - including me. Watson had been on several other records by this time including the legendary "Old Time Music at Clarence Ashley's" where he got his start, but had never sat down alone with a mic and a guitar before. This record turned him into a folk superstar.

The first time I saw Watson at Club 47 the room was crowded. That was before this record was released. The next time he played Cambridge they had to clear the place between sets as half the guitarists in the greater Boston area were lined up on Mount Auburn Street.

He has recorded a lot of albums since but the straightforward simplicity and his superbe musicianship has made this one an essential part of my collection for more than 40 years now. I don't think you can find a better Watson record. I own a lot of them and I haven't.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Saturday Afternoon in 1964 31 Mar. 2004
By Tony Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One Saturday Afternoon in 1964, I looked at the record bins in EJ Korvette's store in Hartford, CT and found this back when it was a new record. This is Doc Watson's first solo Album.
He had been recorded by folkways since 1961. This was all on folklore oriented recordings of Doc Watson with Clarence Ashley and various pickers from their home area on the borders of Tennessee and North Carolina, in the great Old Time Music at Clarence Ashleys which is now out in a nice two-CD set with more stuff on it than the original records. Then there was a great recording by folkways called The Watson Family, recording Doc, his wife Rosalee, his father in law the great old time fiddler Gaither Carlton, his brother and his mother and other relatives, but with Doc on most recordings. That recording is also one for everyone (Don't confuse it with the nice, but not nearly as good Vanguard CD of The Watson family at Newport).
This is Doc Watson's first album on his own. It also represents a decision he made to go out as a solo act, and not to continue performing as part of the Watson Ashley band or to join the New Lost City Ramblers in which he had been offered the spot of replacing Tom Paley.
This is a clear folk album. Of course, it has the great Black Mountain Rag which is a guitar masterpiece. It also has his Chet Atkins influenced Doc's Guitar. But the heart and sould of this recording is the old time songs. I was really taken by his harmonic solo Momma Blues and his banjo version of Doc Bogg's Country Blues. Then there was I'm Born about 6000 years ago, an old novelty pop song from the turn of the century that my grandfather used to sing in Hartford Connecticut.
There is sincerity, fun, and a real mastery of both voice and instrument. A nice album. Since all the various Vanguard collections only have selections, you really need this first CD if you want all the Doc Watson, or if you are me, just trying to keep bring what you discovered that afternoon in 1964

5.0 out of 5 stars Doc's first album--a keeper! 9 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Note: This review is for the album advertised here and not the 4-CD set with the same cover.
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, has made me want to smash my guitars against a pole more than listening to Doc Watson. Simply the best flatpicker there is; the inspiration and the frustration of thousands.
Here's his first album and while it has its moments where you can take it or leave it, the talent that Ralph Rinzler saw is quite evident.
Check out "Doc's Guitar," as played by the guy who made it up. Yowza. Nice singing voice, too. I've owned this album nearly 25 years and it's still one of my favorites.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Master In Pure Distilled Form 13 Jan. 2013
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this CD!! Doc Watson was the finest flatpicking guitarist that ever lived. This CD is a collection of solo recordings ... just Doc's voice and guitar.

The magic of Doc is that, within the simple structure of folk and bluegrass music, he weaves in so many fills and runs on his guitar. Its really quite amazing. If you've learned to play guitar (I took lessons for a few years), you can't help but be in awe over how complex, light and clean his playing is.

I had the pleasure of seeing Doc live several times. My guitar teacher urged me to see him whenever he was in the area, and I'm so glad I did. He was a legend !!
5.0 out of 5 stars Late and great 22 July 2012
By Louis J. Casimir, III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sorry I didn't know about Doc Watson until after he was gone. I mean, I knew he was a country original, but I didn't know what an amazing, driving guitar player he was. The next album I get, I'll look for more instrumentals, but this is till an awesome cd.
