The Vanguard Years is the title of a recording by American folk music and country blues artist Doc Watson, released in 1995. This four-CD collection contains 64 tracks from Watson's years on the Vanguard label recorded from 1963 to 1968. There are 16 previously unreleased performances included that are live duets between Doc and his son Merle. It includes guests such as Gaither Carlton, Clarence White and Merle Travis.

Four-CD, 64-song collection drawn principally from Doc's Vanguard releases of the 1960s and early 1970s (tapped his solo LPs and performances at the 1963 and 1964 Newport Folk Festival). This was Doc's best period recording-wise, and certainly you couldn't hope for a better document of his virtuosity, as the guitarist covers all manner of American folk and blues styles over the course of the set. It's too much, however, for listeners who aren't big fans; Vanguard's Essential Doc Watson is a more economical survey.

Temporarily out of stock. Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). Shortly after Doc was discovered in the early '60s, he went to record for what was then the leading label in '60s folk, Vanguard Records, and there he stayed until 1971, recording the fantastic, flatpicked array of traditional tunes that comprise this retrospective. Among the 64 tracks are 17 unreleased performances recorded live at the 1971 Winfield, Kansas flatpicking championships, plus classic material like Corrina Corrina; The Cuckoo; Black Mountain Rag, and more, all annotated inside a booklet boasting rare photos.
