Reviews:

Doc Watson got his start in rockabilly bands, so when his late son Merle suggestedforming a band that mixed pop, country and traditional music, Doc thought it wasa great idea. They called the band Early Frost, but after their first recording25 years ago, Merle was killed when the tracker he was riding flipped over onhim. Last year at the yearly Merlefest-the memorial concert Doc organized as atribute to his son's memory-Early Frost reformed, with Merle's son Richard sittingin for his dad. This live set mixes the folky material Doc is best known for,including an a cappella version of "Coo Coo Bird" with left field choiceslike the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" and the Moonglows' dowop classic "Sincerely." Doc's lost a bit of the brightness in his highend, but his slight sandpaper rasp adds another level of timelessness to his performances.
