    Itīs funny that everybody has their own favorite album and that there is hardly any overlap.

    My dearest to my heart Doc Watson record is "Ballads From The Deep Gap". It was one of my first records that I ever owned (the other being an Okeh Western Swing compilation). The "Texas Gales" version is still one of my favorites and one of my favorite fiddle tunes. Go and try to chuck that at some banjo (or mandolin) slinger at a jam session. The reactions are priceless.

    The self titled "Doc Watson" album is a close second as are "Home Again", "Southbound", "Doc Watson and Son", "Doc Watson and Jean Ritchie at Gerdeīs Folk City" and practically all albums that do not have the magnetic pickup sound. Of the later ones the "PickinīThe Blues" album is magic. And the list goes on and on.

    The Cuckoo, for me. It’s that oak floorboard stomping, creaking chair legs, storm’s abrewing, pine forest fragrance, breeze in the tree tops acoustic sound, simple and slow. And fast, just easy and not hurried.
