Doc & Merle 1985 Concert Video Surfaces

You’ve gotta love eBay. I found this item the other day:

All I know about it is what you see in the listing. It’s a home video of Doc & Merle Watson with T. Michael Coleman recorded in an Atlanta, Georgia club in October, 1985–purportedly three days before Merle’s tragic death. I haven’t even received my copy yet, but there are 2 short clips with the listing. Regardless of the quality, this is a very significant find for Doc Watson fans, especially those who’ve never had the chance to SEE Merle, who brought out the best in his legendary dad. Audio recordings surface from time to time, but a video find like this is rare indeed. I’d pounce now, you never know how long the sale might last.
