The 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken' album , which I still have in pristine condition , was the beggining of my love for flat picking . Doc's rendition of Way Down Town was is still one of my favorites .. I bet that ole guitar could tell a few tales .... I'd probably even give up my first born for that one ..
great treasure ..
