Synopsis

Amazon.com
Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson trading licks--what more do you need to know? Toss in a fine solo or two from Josh Graves's Dobro, Paul Warren's fiddle, or Charlie McCoy's harmonica. Sure, the songs are the simplest of springboards and the running time is abominably low (less than 25 minutes), but it's hard to find fault when Scruggs's banjo magically rolls and Watson's flat-picking fingers fly. Both men have always shared an ability to make the impossible sound effortless and virtuosity sound elementary, and this 1966 gem is further proof of that. As the notes dart, the mood remains relaxed and intimate. --Marc Greilsamer

Flat Picking At Its Best
07/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an example of guitar flat picking at its best. With Flatt, Scruggs, and the addition of Doc Watson's genius, there is no way this CD could be anything but fantastic - and it delivers as you might expect...If I had to pick one bluegrass CD on the merit of instrument playing alone - this would unquestionably be it. The only downside is there is less than 30 minutes of music - I wish the trio had cut twice as many selections..."
A must for bluegrass lovers.

"A must for lovers of bluegrass guitar and banjo pickin' by three of America's greatest musicians. Some classic stuff and, thankfully, some pieces I'd never heard. Very high quality recording. Unfortunately, there's only 11 cuts and I could listen for hours."
