The recordings of the Watson Family, the most famous of whom is legendary guitarist Arthel "Doc" Watson, are classic examples of Anglo-American folk tradition. Some of the songs performed here go back many generations? others were written about recent events. Many members of the Watson family are musical, and this sampling of their rich repertoire includes songs learned at home and in church. Whether through their vocal style or instrumental ability, the Watson family created a musical environment that influenced Doc Watson throughout his career. This album includes both fifteen songs from 1963 Folkways album of the same title, as well as eleven new cutes on the compact disc and cassette (eight new cuts on the LP) from the original recordings, never before released. New liner notes, written from hours of conversations with Doc Watson and Ralph Rinzler, provide important background on the recording and on Doc Watson?s subsequent musical career.

"To the non-musicologist, listening to this album feels like opening a door to a world that existed a million years ago. The songs aren't quite that old, it turns out, but they still evoke an era that long predates Blackberries and flush toilets. Watson's guitar playing is, as always, astounding. The participation of wives, uncles, and kids makes this seem less like a commercial album than a family album in music.
