I think listening to the guy who spent over 10 years of his life putting the ONLY device on the planet was exceptional. When it "blew", I almost cried. My heart went out to him. I don't think enough credit was given to those damn engineers. Just my arsehole opinion. Artists in their own right.
I loved all the old footage. Hurt's grandsomething on the old porch is haunting. Walking on the spot where he had a stroke. Heart wrenching. That old white girl thinking she heard the 78... exceptional how that thrist for music and meaning lives in all of us.
Joseph Kekuku and the origins of the steel guitar was revelatory. A bolt hit the strings of his guitar???!!! Funny how life goes, eh?
I have the PBS DVD on the Cater family so I had seen most of their bio but I loved that old oil-based paint on the front porch.
So good to see the Artist's reaction to hearing themselves. Jack telling Elton how to play those notes. Elton saying, "yeah"... hahaha. I am always floored to actually see Jack's genius in action. Witch leads me to voice how little talent I personally have in regards to doing anything in life SO FUCKING BRILLIANTLY. Everyone of those sessions left me awestruck.
Edit. Already bought a Lydia Mendoza lp from Ebay Mexico. Mal Hombre has to be the most anti-misogynistic song ( lack a better way of putting it ), I have ever heard.
