5.0 out of 5 stars CAN YOU WEAR OUT A DVD? December 20, 2001
Format:DVD
I may just find out someday. I decided to buy this DVD because I had two of Nesmith's older albums (Tantamount to Treason and Nevada Fighter) on vinyl, and really, really liked them, but I had not kept up with 'Nez for a long time, and had never seen him in concert. In the last few months, I've probably watched/listened to this disc over twenty times or so. I copied it onto an audio tape so that I can listen to it in the car. Since then, I've bought ALL the rest of his albums on CD. And love them. But nothing is better than LIVE AT THE BRITT. Rather than fading with age, he has really grown as an artist over the years. His live versions of "Joanne", "Silver Moon" are far superior to the much earlier, studio versions. The BRITT versions are slower and more soulful. To this day, I have trouble singing along with "Moon Over the Rio Grande", because it still raises a lump in my throat. If you have any fond memories of traditional Western music as performed by the Sons of the Pioneers, you will love this cut! The concert is punctuated by 'Nez's self-effacing humor. The tunes are all his. The backing band is outstanding! John Hobbs (keyboard), John Jorgensen (lead guitar and mandolin), and the late, great Red Rhodes (steel guitar) are all multiple award-winning instrumentalists. Joe Chemay (bass guitar) and Luis Conte (Percussion) fit in perfectly with this group to make beautiful music. It's obvious that they've played together for years, especially 'Nez and Red.
'Nez is country, country-rock, folk, rock, acoustic pop and all of the above, but it doesn't matter. Those are just categories that this artist spans. He is my favorite singer/songwriter. The fact that he "changes styles like he changes his socks", just makes it more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any Nez fan! March 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A wonderful concert that you will view time and time again. Nez seemed to be having a wonderful time when he was performing that night at the Britt Festival. I have seen him live and he was pretty much the same here as he was when I saw him perform in concert. Nothing flashy in the way he performs, but along with some nice stories behind the songs Nez pleasantly gives the viewer a great 80 minutes of music. The sound is great if you have a surround sound system. What are you waiting for? If you like the music of Michael Nesmith I recommend you purchase this DVD right now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert! Great performance! January 2, 2004
Format:DVD
Wow! It is incredible to have this concert on a DVD!Let me start off by saying that the DVD is almost exactly the concert that I saw at the Britt festival in 1992.
Infact, it is the very same concert minus two funny moments when Nez had trouble keeping his guitar in tune and a joke he told to kill time while they changed 3/4" video tapes. What a great night that was and it is wonderful to have a record of the concert for all of us to enjoy again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Let the Monkees Deter You... August 9, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not that the Monkees' music was so bad, it really wasn't. But the band's pre-fab made-for-TV status unfairly tainted the musical reputations of the members. Well okay, not unfairly in every case, but extremely unfairly in Mike Nesmith's case.
I learned this in 1972, my freshman year at UCLA, when he did a free concert on campus. All us college kids were belittling him and joking about what pre-fab Monkees tunes he might resurrect. I went out of curiousity anyway, and what a wonderful shock I received.
What I saw and heard was a genre-defying blend of rock-blues-folk-country music, unique and original, that knocked me out. This DVD has allowed me to relive that joyous, enlightening experience. I became a fan and still have and listen to his records and CDs.
Love or hate the Monkees, if you like thoughtful American tunes from a true original songsmith, you will like Mike Nesmith's show. Don't be deterred.

5.0 out of 5 stars michael nesmith live at the britt January 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was great being able to see Michael Nesmith 'in person' after listening to mostly all of his cd's. His music, especially Joanne and Moon Over the Rio Grande are hauntingly beautiful and not the kind of music one often hears.
He seems to be comical and humble but most of all magically, musically talented. It's hard to believe it was recorded so long ago.
Thank you Nez, for your passion for musical dreams.

I enjoyed this DVD enough to watch it 4 or 5 times but only because I am a big fan of his music and Nez as a person. The video quality is lacking. Read more
