There were a couple of scenes there that I saw on Youtube some time ago, but the bulk of that video seems like something that has remained buried for a long time. I remember Mike rolling a cig on the mixer and the gliders in pt. 2, on some "documentary" footage I saw, but the rest is undiscovered country. I don't remember Branson being the narrator. Cool. I never saw Mike's photo until '75 when Ommadawn came out, after dissecting two albums for 2+ years. Now, 33 years later, it's cool to see the process as it was when I was 14. Mike seemed "semi-autistic" like he was stuck in his own little world and would only connect with people he knew well. I got the feeling from the video that a stranger would have difficulty getting him to even make eye contact at that time. I guess that's why his music was SO good. He was FOCUSED.
We raise our voices in the night
Crying to heaven
And will our voices be heard
Or will they break Like the wind
