A father/son team treatment of traditional roots bluegrass (as the liner notes have it, young Merle made this recording five months after he received and learned to play his first banjo), these source tracks were originally recorded in 1967. Exhumed after over thirty years and remixed with additional musicians (bass, fiddle, mandolin and harmony vocals), HOME SWEET HOME sounds crisp, flawless and unified-- as though it were recorded by a group that had been playing together for years.
The duo gives folk standards like "John Henry," "Worried Blues," and "Little Maggie" spirited, true-blue workouts with plenty of fine picking-- particularly from neophyte Merle, who kicks up heels in his own instrumental composition "Russian Grass." The contemporary musicians turn in fine performances as well, and the engineers of this project have done an outstanding job honoring the pure, homespun aesthetic of the source tapes. There is something irresistible about the appeal of bluegrass, and the treated recordings of Doc and Merle make HOME SWEET HOME sound at once fresh and authentic.
