Don't know if this has been posted before. Contains an interview with Kate McTell's brother.

That's definitely worth watching, thanks for posting it. The filmmaker lets the people talk at length, all too rare. It's really great to hear from someone who lived with him.

The spoken recordings of McTell must be Ed Rhodes material? I don't recall hearing them before, but may have simply forgotten.

Thanks for the link, Phil.

I'm pretty sure that most if not all of McTell's spoken clips are from the Rhodes recordings.

Thanks, Phil, hadn't seen that.  Well worth watching .. shaved his own mustache!  ..who da' thunk it?  Amazing life story, we're lucky to have his music live on.  Tom
