They are amazing live, was at a show when that doc was being done.

Agreed. And Piper is light years ahead of Pepper in my book. Barrett's stuff just feels so much more organic, explorational then later floyd. It doesn't have the polish or scale of Water's architecture, but I feel it's the genesis. He is also one of the most underrarted guitarists there is. Not in a virtuostic sense, but in terms of creating a sound that is unmistakable. It's like he was painting sounds rather then playing notes. I think you'll understand what I mean having heard him. Gilmour was obviously heavily influenced. Barrett is my favorite album from the box-set.

I really got an appreciation for jazz and things of the like from watching Woody Allen films
Haven't heard much of her stuff, only know she's married to Elvis Costello. Will check her out...
You ever heard Big Star? Absoulutely love their Pop sensibility. Chilton is another guy who was underrated as a guitar player.
