This contains previously unreleased material from the early '60s as well as three tracks recorded in 1973. It has a scattershot feeling about it that comes from the material being recorded at different times, but it digs up some good stuff along the way. Particularly nice are Watson's performances of Blind Boy Fuller's "My Little Woman, You're So Sweet" and "Just a Friend," in which he duets with mother Rosa Lee. The liner notes by Watson's daughter Nancy are a treat, recalling memories of grandpa Gaither Carlton, the first Watson Family recording session, and the April night that Merle Watson began playing guitar. ~ Jim Smith
