Doc and the Boys/Live and Pickin' 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

I think this collection is better than the Lonesome Road/Look Away set, probably because about 3/4 of it is live. It appears as if someone at U.A. was meddling with the Watsons' timeless sound. This shows up especially on the bonus track All I Have is Dream, on which Doc is saddled with an annoying back-up chorus. When Doc and Merle moved on to Flying Fish Records, they returned to their basic stripped down approach. You can find those recordings on the Rounder CDs Sittin' Here Pickin' the Blues and Black Mountain Rag. Doc's best U.A. CD is Memories, which was re-released on Sugar Hill. It may be out of print but is probably his best studio effort and worth hunting down..
