Great footage. Bad mastering and editing. 30 Jun. 2014
By E. J. Van Beek - Published on Amazon.com
Finally, 60 years after they were broadcasted, all Hank Williams' performances on The Kate Smith Evening Hour have become availabe on DVD. This is something many country music lovers have waited for for a long time.
The Hank Williams performances are combined with priceless 1954/1956 color footage from Al Gannaway's "The Country Show" and "Stars of the Grand Ole Opry". Main attractions: Bill Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys and The Louvin Brothers.

Unfortunately the Hank Williams footage (and also some Country Show footage) was not directly transfered from the original kinescopes, but from videotape.

Not only did Shanachie a bad job on the mastering of this DVD. The editing is sloppy too. Some performances abruptly start and end.

Moreover, Shanachie messed up the aspect ratio from the Country Show footage. They narrowed the original 4:3 ratio to 8:9. Never seen anything like this...

You Are There 28 Mar. 2014

I think this is well worth the money. I sit with a lady with dementia, and it has been hard to find something she likes and enjoys. We both love this. We watch it everyday.

Thanks for making it available.

Awful Transfers with Pixelation and Other Issues 16 July 2014
By Rabbit's Soul - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ever heard the expression "too good to be true"? File this DVD under it.

Obviously fans of these old music shows go wild any time they're released, but this is one that you might be disappointed with. That is, unless you truly believe that anything is better than nothing. Normally, I would bear with it, but the quality of the video throughout this DVD is too awful. I own several DVD's of old music/variety shows (all 4 of the Country Style U.S.A. DVD's, for example), and this is the worst.

E.J. Van Beek summarized the issues with this product fairly well (so read his review, too). However, I'd like to also point out that the appearance of most of the footage shows digital artifacts including very noticeable pixelation. It's easy to see unless you're sitting too far from your screen. To get an idea of what I'm talking about, go to Youtube and start an old Grand Ole Opry video. Now, enlarge it to fit your entire screen. Can you see the distorted blocks appearing and disappearing? That is what you'll experience with this DVD. Sad but true. The Hank Williams footage isn't quite as bad, but the quality overall is inexcusable.

Shanachie clearly didn't even try to scan any of the footage properly or treat the Hank Williams footage better. Instead, they've compiled awful transfers with ill-timed fades at the beginning and end of each performance. They probably figured using "the only Hank Williams footage" alongside "early color footage of Bill Monroe" as the selling points would get them easy money no matter how bad the video aspects are. Therefore I do not recommend this. You can stream all of the "only Hank Williams footage" from various sites and the quality is just as good or slightly worse.

The track list:

1. Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - Close By
2. Sam & Kirk McGee - Roll on Buddy
3. Grandpa & Ramona Jones - Darby's Ram
4. Square Dance - Forked Deer
5. Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - You'll Find Her Name Written There
6. Crook Brothers - Grey Eagle
7. Louvin Brothers - I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby
8. Stringbean - Cripple Creek
9. Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - Little Georgia Rose
10. Grandpa Jones - Bald Headed End of the Broom
11. Square Dance - Ragtime Annie
12. Lonzo & Oscar - John Henry
13. Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - A Voice from on High
14. Stringbean - Liza Jane
15. Benny Martin - Me and My Fiddle
16. Grandpa Jones - Kitty Klyde
17. Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - Roanoke
18. Grandpa & Ramona Jones - I Wonder Where My Darling Is Tonight
19. Square Dance - Fire on the Mountain
20. Louvin Brothers - Love Thy Neighbor
21. Fruit Jar Drinkers - Soldiers Joy
22. Grandpa Jones - Old Dan Tucker
23. Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - Swing Low Sweet Chariot
24. Johnny & Jack/Kitty Wells/Grandpa Jones/Faron Young - Cotton Eyed Joe
25. Hank Williams - Hey Good Lookin
26. Hank Williams - Cold Cold Heart
27. Hank Williams & Anita Carter - I Can't Help It If I'm Still in Love with You
28. Square Dance - Eighth of January
29. Hank Williams/Roy Acuff & cast - I Saw the Light

The Bill Monroe and Hank Williams performances are probably tempting you, but I hope everyone interested considers the negative reviews.

If you like real hillbilly music, than you should love this. The quality of the DVD is pretty good even though the original tapes were not the best to work with. A nice piece of American musical history.

Thank you - NEW condition and prompt service. No issues. 21 May 2014
By Steve Sattler - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great DVD for one reason, Hank Williams , it is the only known Television appearance. For over 50 years we have only seen one Live image of Hank Williams sing " Hey Good Lookin" which was used with Hank JR. sing the Duet "Tear in my Beer" . However what makes this DVD song fantastic is there were several other performances with Hank on The Kate Smith TV SHow. This DVD has all 4!! Never before seen (Crystal Clear ) on DVD - SUPER RARE FIND>
