Mellow as a summer evening

JohnnyF

This album has a relaxed easy going feeling throughout. The picking is flawless and Doc Watson's soft tenor is as easygoing and mellow as a summer evening on the porch. "Three times seven" and "More pretty girls than one" smile with humor and "Treasures Untold" touches your heart. I could listen to this forever.

Elementary Mr. Watson

Doc's picking is smooth and so well done that you have to listen hard to find any flaws-aint no "nits to pick" here. I used to think Chet Atkins version of BLACK MOUNTAIN RAG was hot until I heard Doc's.

True class

MrBob

I was lucky enough to see Doc Watson 25 years ago at the Cambridge festival. I remember his playing was so effortless and that comes over in this fine album. He was reckoned to be the world's greatest flat pick guitarist and you can't argue with that if you hear this.

Must quite agree with comments from Plong42 and moosewater. I could listen to this album over and over again.

This is the sound of white country blues at it's finest. How DO you feel about that, Merle?

A Classic Front Porch Kind of Session

I've been listening to this album ever since I bought it in the cutout section of my favorite record store (remember those?) when it was out in vinyl. The playing is so effortless, and the song selection is wonderful. Truly one of my all time favorites in any genre.

They Say All Music Guide

This was Watson’s first album after leaving Vanguard, and it nicely showcased his new “country” sound, featuring mellow but terrifically played traditional and contemporary material. Particularly nice are the versions of “Going Down the Road Feeling Bad,” Tom Paxton’s “The Last Thing on My Mind,” and “More Pretty Girls Than One.” With Norman Blake (on dobro) and Vassar Clements contributing, this is a great Sunday morning record, a genuine pleasure from start to finish. – Jim Smith
