Manufacturer Description

This is a live concert recording from Doc & Merle Watson at The Boarding House in San Francisco. Recorded during five live shows from May 1-4, 1974, it spreads across 7 CDs. This is the first home-grown release from Owsley Stanley Foundation, a non-profit, established to preserve and distribute Owsley's legendary recordings. These performances have not been heard since the night they were played more than 40 years ago, and were professionally recorded and re-mastered. Owsley Stanley, known as Bear to his friends, is the father of the modern rock and roll concert sound system. He was the soundman for The Grateful Dead, and is infamously known as the first private individual to manufacture and distribute LSD. Bear recorded nearly every artist that played through a sound system that he built, calling these recordings ''Sonic Journals,'' and using them to further refine his craft. Doc Watson was an American guitarist, songwriter and singer of bluegrass, folk, country, blues and gospel music, who won 7 Grammys, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He performed with his son, guitarist Merle Watson, for over 15 years until Merle's death in 1985. Mastered by the Grateful Dead's sound engineer, Jeffrey Norman, this 7 cd set is packaged in a 6x12 size box which includes a 16 page booklet, containing photographs of Doc & Merle Watson. ''Never The Same Way Once'' contains an in depth interview with bassist T. Michael Coleman who performs on these tracks and features 94 songs including extraordinary pickin' versions of rockabilly, blues and show music material ranging from ''Jailhouse Rock,'' ''St.James Infirmary,'' ''Summertime'' and numerous other Americana classics.
