This "musical documentary" is sort of the audio equivalent of a PBS special about the legendary dobro player Josh Graves
. Narrator Bob O'Donnell
walks the listener through stories and historical accounts from Bill Monroe
, Marty Stuart
, Mac Wiseman
, Jerry Douglas
, and others, as well as presenting musical examples of Graves
' crisp playing. While informative and well-produced, it serves more as an instructional historical document rather than a solid listen from beginning to end. Still, anyone interested in an in-depth study of the man and his music would be hard-pressed to find a more educational place to begin.
