Acoustic guitar shredding?

What are some albums that feature fast and virtuosic acoustic guitar playing/shredding? For example, I really like a lot of the Candyrat guitarists (Ewan Dobson, Gareth Pearson), and most recently I really enjoyed Paul Gilbert's Acoustic Samurai album. I also know that Van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen have done some acoustic shredding. Any really good ones you could recommend?

Rock/metal pieces with multiple simultaneous soloists?

I'm fascinated by the double guitar solo in DragonForce's "Through the Fire and Flames". (Video, 3:20 mark.) What are some other rock/metal pieces that successfully pull off multiple simultaneous soloists?

Theoretical geek in 1981 needs records.

More than a playlist, I'm trying to make an entire sub-set of my music collection: I want the music that a 17-year-old D&D playing geeky almost-metalhead would be listening to...in 1981. [more inside]

Elephant Riders Lyrics Question

Elephant Riders, by Clutch. I've been trying to figure out the meaning of the lyrics. I think it has to do with the King of Siam donating elephants to Abe Lincoln (a la The King and I), but I could be mistaken on that, and I have no idea where the trains come in.
