The first of three Fiddlin' Doc Roberts collections released by Document in 1999 opens with the scratchiest artifacts in his entire discography. This comes as no surprise, as not only are rural 78-rpm records notorious for having been worn down by blunted needles (or improvised styli in the form of modified safety pins), but tracks one through seven were recorded using the old acoustic horn process. Generally speaking, records of this vintage usually require a certain amount of remastering.
The second of three Document collections devoted to Fiddlin' Doc Roberts covers most of his recorded output from late August 1928 through mid-January 1930. The third and final volume in Document's reissued works of Fiddlin' Doc Roberts covers his recording activity during the years 1930-1934.
