PersuasionsAcappella ... CD
Straight/Enigma Retro, 1969. Used ... $4.99
The title gets it right on this one, because The Persuasions sing all acappella – quite unique for soul music at such a time of heavy production! The group were a great throwback to an earlier era of vocal group harmony – and this album, recorded for Zappa's Straight label, gave them great exposure to a crossover audience that helped them thrive way into the 70s. There's a nicely rootsy feel here – almost what The Chambers Brothers were doing in the late 60s, but even more stripped down, due to the lack of instrumentation. The performance is a live one, and the recording really preserves the feel of the set – leaving in some of the introductions and crowd noise, which further authenticates their sound. Titles include "Drip Drop", "The Bounce", "Up On The Roof", "It's All Right", "Searchin' for My Baby", and "Don't Look Back". CD

✨✧ Doc WatsonLife's Work – A Retrospective (4CD set) ... CD
Craft, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A career-spanning collection of work from the great Doc Watson, all collected together in a really beautiful book-styled package – one that offers up as much about Watson's unusual life as it does his legendary work on guitar! Watson's got an enigmatic history – in that during the 50s, he was headed towards a more mainstream life in country music, but veered back towards more traditional material as the decade moved in – abandoning his electric for an acoustic, and really seeing great fame in the 60s, as he was a discovery by a whole new generation of roots music fans – and became as important an acoustic guitar innovator as artists like John Fahey and Robbie Basho! Watson's always been a bit more down to earth than both of those players, though – and has a well-grounded approach to life that helped him stay strong and continue to evolve over the decades – as you'll hear in this huge set of 100 different songs from over the years. The package features a number of Doc's duets with son Merle Watson, plenty other solo recordings, and other material with Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Flatt & Scruggs, and others. The package is very heavy on work from the key years of the 60s through the early 80s – and includes choice cuts from other years too – alongside an 88 page book that features new notes, and many rare photos and images!
