Thread Name: Doc Watson at Gerdes Folk City
Subject: Doc Watson at Gerdes Folk City
Just entered a store near me -- maybe has been released earlier in the US, but what the hey --, Sugar Hill Records has released a record of Doc Watson's first solo performances at Gerdes Folk City in New York 1962 -1963. This is (surprise, surprise) an incredible album (SUG CD-3934), immediately goes to the top of any list you want to make -- a worthy companion to the old favourite with Jean Ritchie from the same period. The sound is terrific, and the playing, well, what can one say.

yours, Peter T.
