The documentary is Beware of Mr. Baker from 2012 - well worth seeing.

He was a wonderful musician and a difficult man. I'm listening to one of his best albums now, twenty years old this year. It was a "direct-to-stereo" recording, great audio quality.

Yep, I'll second that. I guess I'm actually the 'third" on this one.

Sad news. He left us a lot of really good music. All things considered 80 is a pretty good run. RIP Mr. Baker, and Thanks for the music.
