"An exceptional body of work, this is a historical record of the fleeting nature of greatness and the moments when the worlds of the Delta, Texas, Chicago blues, rock 'n' roll, and jazz actually came together" - Steve Miller
"My Guitar Is a Camera provides a rich visual history of the vibrant live music scene in Austin and beyond during the 1970s and early 1980s, allowing Casey's lens to reveal both the stage, awash in spotlights and crowd noise, and the more intimate backstage moments, where entertainers hold forth to interviewers and friends. As Outlaw Country's cosmic cowboys mixed with East Coast rockers, Chicago bluesmen, and West Coast hippies, Watt Casey roamed at will, capturing the people, places, and happenings that blended to foster Austin's emerging reputation as 'Live Music Capital of the World.' "
