  • Personnel: Doc Watson (vocals, guitar); Merle Watson (guitar).
  • Arrangers: Doc Watson; Dwight Greer.
  • HOME AGAIN! (1966) was the fourth in Doc Watson's string of fine albums for Vanguard. With his unaffected singing style, dazzling flat-picking guitar technique, and repertoire of traditional songs, Watson is the virtual embodiment of true folk music. While his later albums would incorporate bluegrass, country, and pop material, HOME AGAIN! is strictly old-school folk, with Watson's acoustic performances accompanied here and there by his son Merle on second guitar and Russ Savakus on string bass.
  • Watson has an uncanny knack for making the most conventional folk standards immediately appealing. The program here includes the whimsical "Froggie Went A-Courtin'," the gentle and sad "Matty Groves," and an a cappella version of "Down in the Valley to Pray." What really astonishes here--even beyond Watson's flawless guitar work--is the sincerity and warmth Watson brings to each song, reminding the listener why these simple, gorgeous tunes have weathered the decades, and why they will continue to last.
