Product description

Product Description

Jimmy Martin's childhood dream was to become a regular at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. This film follows his dream to become the Bluegrass legend he is today. Known for his over-the-top dress sense, his notorious hunting trips and overall bad behaviour, Martin is the bad boy of bluegrass; and from 1949 to 1954 he was instrumental in forming the 'High Lonseome Sound' that is well known today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell dear friend. 3 Aug. 2005
By Duane C. Becker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Knew Jimmy in Nashville and had breakfast every morning with him for over a year at Cracker Barrel, I knew the man and he was wonderful, this is a fiting tribute to a man who was a giant and snubbed by the Opry because he didn't fit their profile, warm, friendly, generous and a true King of Bluegrass, highly recommend you have this if you love Bluegrass as I do, he was larger than life and should be remembered for who and what he was.
5.0 out of 5 stars You can't understand the man's music without hearing the story and seeing some footage... 27 Dec. 2012

Martin was definitely a talent, and an incredible character. He was also obsessive and bipolar, is what I took from this documentary. But, his music was definitely great, and so is this documentary.

this dvd was great to watch. The story of his life was straight to the point and know beating around the truth of what went on in his life. Rather it be on stage or off.
