Subject: RE: Obit: Doc Watson 1923 - 2012
Something special I found doing a search.

An hour of various Doc performances, many with Merle...and one, which I saw live, of Doc playing for the first time with Merle Travis .....at Winfield, Kans. I'd suggest right clicking 'on the title' where it says Doc Watson VI and saving to your drive. Save it and savor it.... wonderful cuts.

The cut (#8) with Merle Watson is at 17:50... (If you listen carefully, you can hear me clapping in the crowd.)

(Doc 'met' Merle when recording the Nitty-Gritty Dirt Band album, but they were never on stage together until Winfield.) I 'may' have a tape of that afternoon somewhere.
