Next best thing to being at the live concert is this videotape of country greats/legends. What a grand event with legendary heroes - the immortal Johnny Cash, quivering voice of Waylon Jennings, the talented songwriting of Kris Kristofferson and of course the versatility of Willie Nelson.
In between the songs are short snippets of separate anecdotes the four share about each other. They have respect, love and admiration for one another. The music is superb, the audience receptive and the band a core of excellent musicians.
The concert offers a diverse array of music from Willie's jazzy and sultry "Nightlife" to the comedic "Boy Named Sue" and the spiritual "Why Me Lord".
Johnny Cash sings the patriotic "Ragged Old Flag" and Waylon does his classics- "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to Be Cowboys", "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way", "Ain't No Good Chain Gang" and "Luckenbach, Texas".
Also included are the traveling tunes like "City of New Orleans" and "Highwayman". Johnny Cash sings his classics, "Ring of Fire" and "Folsom Prison Blues". The other three join him for a fantastic performance of "Big River". A perennial favorite is Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee".
On the softer side - Waylon's "Amanda" and the beautiful song "Always On My Mind". Willie does this one in his original classic way.
And there are the cowboys tunes, "Silver Stallion" "Last Cowboy Song". The four lend a voice to each other's songs. They are always on stage together.
Some songs I wasn't very familiar with like "Trouble Man", "Best of All Possible Worlds", "They Killed Him" and "Living Legend". But to hear them is an introduction to wonderful songwriting, something that country music lacks today. "On the Road Again" - what better way to end a show than with that catchy, fun road song.
The tape was shot at Long Island's Nassau Coliseum in 1990 and runs 98 minutes. There are 25 songs! So enjoy a great show that will never be duplicated again. .....Rizzo
audience and viewer alike with warmth, charm, fellowship and some great music. Ok the sound is not great. The harmonies miss from time to time. But have 4 guys ever had so much fun that translated to the audience. Willie, Waylon and Mr. Cash have never looked or sounded better. Kris is in awe of his mates but
sounds up to the task. The crib notes i.e. off scene comments
are honest and believeable. This has become my most played concert. The more I play it the more I like it. Come on guys,
put this on DVD. Only 50% of the players are around. You owe them.
