Guitar Solos is still more like a document though (I'm
going with the idea of a document being just a
"straight" recording), it's just that he's so good it
is excellent on its own.  And I know he pays attention
to how it sounds while performing and not just how it
looks, even with all the towels flopping and alligator
clips flying and what not.

I've been hearing a lot about that lately, I'll have
to check them out soon.  I heard a part of the
Coltrane- Ali tribute, guitar and drum duo thing he
did and liked it quite a bit.  Sounds like it's
definitely something I'd be into from your
description.  Thanks.
