Just in time for Doc's birthday, he and David Holt have completed their new CD "LEGACY'. They were kind enough to send me one of the early copies and I am most impressed. 3 cd's, and a 72 page booklet about Doc's early years and the people who inspired him. One tale of his years at the NC School For The Deaf is especially touching.

David recounts the death of his daughter in 1989 and the love and support they recieved from Doc and Rosa Lee.

Over 35 songs,some of which I have never heard.I think anyone would like this work.

David and his High Windy Recordings have set up a web site for this. docwatsonanddavidholt.com

Tell them Jim Ford sent you. Jeep

David Holt moved to these Carolina mountains back in 1969 in order to learn and preserve the old mountain music which abounds here. His career has encompassed about every media.He hosted his own tv show out of Nashville, became a good friend and support of National Public TV and Radio. He has helped set up various programs at Warren Wilson College(Thats where Swannanoa Gathering is held).

I can't remember all of his accompishments, but the two which I am most impressed by are; David moved here and became one of us instead of trying to change things.

He became close friends with Doc Watson and the whole Watson Family.

David is very likable and a tremendous musician. His wife Ginny gave him a great compliment.She told me that"David is a very good man". I consider him a friend and can agree with Ginny.

David's bio etc. can be found at High Windy Audio.com. Jim

Anone with a copy of the film "O Brother etc" can spot David Holt by looking at a scene near the end of the film when a bunch of people are seen taking Baby Face Nelson down the street. David Holt is the guy playing the mandolin.

WYSIWYG, you'd love him. Everything Jeep Man said is true, and more. Lessee now, on his debut performance at the Grand Old Opry, he knew that good instrumentalists were a dime a dozen, likewise good singers and storytellers. He wanted to do something memorable, so he played a paper bag. The last time I saw him perform was his late night set at the National Storytelling Festival. Instead of just sitting up front and getting on stage after the intro, he came up from the back of the audience, taking pictures of the audience that he put on his website within a week. Folks went nuts, and I realized that Garth Brooks really wants to be David Holt. He beat out the comedian Robin Williams for a Grammy a few years back. And then there's the Thunderwear. You see, he does "Hambone", slapping his arms, legs, chest, etc. as a rhythm instrument (it's traditional, folks, he's not that nuts). Well he got a set of coveralls and an electric drum kit (I think). He took the sensors out of the drum kit and put them in the coveralls at the strategic "slap" points, and programmed each sensor to have a different sound. Wow.

I just have to tell you.... I'm sitting here home alone inhaling the booklet for this set, and waiting for Hardi to come home so I can play the CD's. We always listen to things together the first time-- it's so seldom we get big chucks of time together, with his work, so I try to make sure we don't go down the music road separately, and that we share the new stuff together. (It's always hard to wait!) So we have a date with Doc later that Hardi doesn't know about yet.

But this booklet. I am about halfway through it and there are tears flowing. I just can't quite put into words, what it means to me as a musician whose earliest exposure was to Doc's music, played by peole who learned from his records just like Doc learned from 78's.... and then later hearing Doc's recorded stuff myself...

Well, to have Holt's wonderful gift of story telling open up for me how Doc came up in the music world and how he was with people from the very beginning... it's so wonderful and so reassuring to see this on the detail level. Doc leaps off these pages just like the stories we tell around here when we get to meet other Mudcatters. It's like he could be any Mudcatter you've ever hooked up with at a Mudcat gathering, in the way he's just folks with everybody.

Reading this not just as a fan, but as a musician.... it's like nothing I've ever done before. It's pow'ful stuff.

Jeepman I am forever in your debt. I listened to the first Legacy CD on the way to work. I have to tell you that it was a very emotional experience to listen to Doc tell the stories of his family, and his instruments and his life. I mean there I am sitting on the freeway in bumper to bumper traffic with tears rolling down my face.

I'm going to have to be careful where I listen to this thing.

I'm not generally so emotional, but this man and his music apparently mean even more to me than I knew.

Thank you Jeepman.

To all you mudcatters and guests, if you've ever liked Doc Watson or David Holt, buy this cd set. Period. Just buy it. Jeepman I'll be emailing David Holt my thanks as well.
