Wife and I watched it last week. Excellent story. A guy at work is practically evangelistic about it, other than that I wouldn't have thought to see it.

I, too, had a friend at work who was rather evangelistic about it, but so far I have only managed to catch about 3/4 of it on TV (long story). Actually saw his LP reissued and on sale in London Drugs, if you're interested.

Loved that documentary. Never heard of him before seeing it either. Picked up the soundtrack, a great album.

This guy reminded me of the poets and philosophers that embrace the simple things in life and actually gravitate to it with choice of manual labour jobs etc....great movie, exceptional soul in this guy.
