    Fabulous, beautiful, wonderful, fantastic, awesome!!! You did a terrific job documenting (that seems such an inadequate word) the era of singer-songwriters. Thank you, thank you thank you! I just got to relive my childhood and young adulthood in music. That’s the best show I’ve seen in decades. What I’m trying to say is I loved it!
