    Hey Folks, As the original poster of this thread just wanted to say thanks to everyone who replied. I would have gotten back sooner but have been busy watching some fine documentaries about subjects I didn't even know I was interested in.
    In my first post forgot to mention the Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice. Several have brought it up here. No matter what kind of music you like , you will like this one.

    Tom Dowd and the Language of Music is a good one. He started back in the live to 2 track days and may be best known for the Derek and the Dominos Layla record--introduced Eric Clapton to Duane Allman as I remember.

    Seconding Jim’s recommendation about the Bill Evans doc, very good. I’ve watched it twice.
    Seconding Nile’s recommendation about the Howlin Wolf, doc. Also, good. Who ever thought there would be a doc about Wolf. I was at the premiere in Chicago. Hubert & Sam Lay we’re in attendance.
    I had previously recommended Two Trains Running, Blues doc. I’m seconding myself.
    Another is Harlem Street Singer about Rev Gary Davis. Very Good.
    There is a David Bromberg doc, don’t know if it was mentioned.

    The Transatlantic Sessions have some great stuff on them - US and UK acoustic musicians holed up in various locales in Scotland, with Jerry Douglas and Aly Bain masterminding. Six volumes total.

    Down from the Mountain - filmed concert at the Ryman with O Brother musicians featured.

    Mando content in both.
