All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Doc Watson, Santa Cruz, CA 10-27-88 (SBD)

Doc Watson. His given name was Arthe Lane Watson. He was born in Deep Gap North Carolina in 1923. He became blind at a very young age but grew up to become one of the greatest flat picker guitar players ever.  Doc Watson passed away in 2012 at the age of 89.  But his music and spirit lives on in recordings like this.  The sound quality is very good. Sitting in with Doc is Jack Lawrence. Hope you enjoy.
