Merle Travis was the fountain-head of a blues/jazz tinged country guitar fingerstyle since dubbed "Travis picking". Its impact has permeated not only country but folk and 'roots rock' guitar idioms. Travis's seminal role in American guitar styles overshadows the fact that he was also a formidable talent as songwriter and performer. The many facets of his career are all present in this second offering of rare footage spanning his West Coast post-war prime to his last days as a rediscovered legend.
