5.0 out of 5 stars Heartworn highways with extra features 3 Dec 2003
Format:DVD
This is a unique documentary. I gives an intimate look at the underground(outlaw)country music scene in the mid-seventies. I first watched this about ten years ago, by accident. It was on channel four, and I recorded it by mistake after another film. I watched the whole thing, facinated. It featured characters that I knew nothing about, from a time before I was born, yet I was invited into their everyday lives, which was centered around the most honest form of music on the planet. I was delighted to find that it had been released on DVD and with over an hour of extra footage! The content of the extras, for me, almost outweight that of the main feature. It has a jam session filmed at Guy Clark's house around Chrismas time each songster takes his turn around the table to sing a song. Steve Young plays a powerful version of Hank Williams's "I'm So Lonesome I could Cry" in half time.Wow it's amazing!and features a young Steve Earl playing some unrealsed stuff! I can't say enough about this film. It's a gem for any music fan to discover, and you get a lot more than just good music!! Buy It.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lost Highways 20 Oct 2003
Format:DVD
Oh man, what a documentary! We're talking about 86 plus 62 minutes of pure downhearted country music from the 70's "outlaw" era. Here, you can see Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, a young Steve Earle, David Allan Coe and many more,in a informal and relaxed way. Those guys could'nt be more relaxed and sincere, talking and singing with their hearts. That moment Townes Van Zandt sings "Waitin' around to Die" while the old Seymour Washington cries, is a beatiful, oustanding moment. That's what real country music is about. Forget Shania and Faith, buy this DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ameran music, down home as it gets! 25 Aug 2004
Format:DVD
If You like American Music rough and down to earth this is it.
Buy it! This is great music from some of the greatest singer/songwriters this side of Hank Williams. The late great Townes Van Zandt is there alongside such fine artists as Steve Young and Guy Clark and the hilarously funny David Allan Coe. And if You have the movie on vhs, buy it anyway. Lots of bonus material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer authenticity 5 July 2009
By CGP
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The best thing about this truly outstanding documentary is that it manages not to be judgemental in any way. The surreal backwoods characters in the Wigwam Tavern, the Rhinestone-cowboy excesses of David Allen Coe (silver boots and all), the concert performance of the Charlie Daniels Band and the songs played at the kitchen table by Townes Van Zandt are all treated with the same fly-on-the-wall neutrality and respect, leaving viewers to make up their own minds about them.
As far as the performances themselves go, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt are truly outstanding, though the skinny 18-year-old hanger-on in the background that is Steve Earle has a couple of real moments of glory too.
As other reviewers have said, the extras alone are worth the price of the DVD: the increasingly boozy Christmas night singalong at Guy Clark's house is quite superb, as a half-dozen highly talented musicians play just for the fun of it. It's not clear who starts to play Silent Night (the camera is on Guy Clark as someone else starts playing), but as they all join in you can't help feeling privileged to be allowed to share such a clearly emotional moment.
I've watched this DVD over and over again and I find something new to amaze me every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin 9 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
If you want a breather from the souless fabric of todays so called artists this is the film to check out.Even if you are not a particular fan of this particular gendre of music you cannot ignore the sheer impact this documentary makes.Kids of today trying to enter there " particular field of dreams" would do well to check out what playing music from the heart really means. Ok you might feel like taking up the bottle yourself after watching this epic journey but surely a quick tipple in respect to these guys has got to be the ultimate mark of respect.Enjoy, but be careful folks someone might catch you crying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic 23 Dec 2005
By Dr Rock
Format:DVD
Guy Clarke, Townes van Zandt, Steve Young and Rodney Crowell to name but a few on this voyueristic journey to the heart of american music, an absolute must have for any fan of music, regardless of genre,and for this sort of money you would have to be quite mad not to own this piece of art and music history. Stop reading and buy this DVD ,you know so little now, but for a small sum you could be enlightened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but brilliant 5 Oct 2004
Format:DVD
I can't recommend this film enough to anyone who has an interest in such artists as Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, Charlie Daniels, Steve Earle, Barefoot Jerry, D.A. Coe, and, of course, Townes Van Zant.. This is a brilliant time capsule of mid-1970s Nashville and the scruffy bunch of singer/songwriters whol lived on the fringe of country music. The picking is exceptional and brilliantly recorded. There are moments, particularly in the Wig Wam tavern, featuring real folks who are far more bizarre than David Lynch could conjure.
But it's really about the music here, and though there are some slow times, this movie ranks as one of the top music films ever.
