5.0 out of 5 stars A great historic collaboration! October 5, 2004
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
If I were lucky to have been at this concert, it would be one of the few times where I could walk out and say.....Now THAT was a great concert!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Highwaymen VHS Edition October 9, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Sony is missing the boat. They need to get a DVD of this great concert out as soons as possible. Imagine 4 country legends at a concert in Long Island, NY (not a bastian of country) wowing

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.

Written by Stuart Borris - Do not confuse this group with the original Highwaymen folk group, because the 4 guys that make up these Highwaymen are much different than the men who first used the name. These are 4 legends who came together to give real back bone to the name Highwaymen and this tape is a solid introduction to that. To say this item is great is like saying the Pacific Ocean has a lot of water. If you appreciate the roots of country music, this video is real proof that there was nothing like having Waylon, Johnny, Willie and Kris on stage at the same time working together. In this presentation, you see 4 legends coming together to make a rare combonation. These guys created something so special it can not be matched. The closest thing to them might be the Rat Pack or maybe if BB King, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Diamond came together, recorded and performed on stage together. That is a tall tall order but the Highwaymen are all that and have made their mark for many generations to follow. I had the fortune of seeing these guys in person at the Patriot Center Fairfax, Virginia on June 10, 1995. Even though I had always liked Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, my friend Eric had to talk me into going to this show. It was at a time when I was more into Hootie and the Blowfish and Collective Soul. Even though I wasn't excited when I came in, I came out of that show a real fan of the Highwaymen and an even bigger fan Cash and Jennings. It was my one and only opportunity of seeing them because they never returned to the Washington DC area again. I wish I had known how good they were, for I would have surely seen them multiple times.

If you like any of the Highwaymen -- Slide the video into a ProLogic Surround Sound unit, preferrably with a larger screen TV -- then crank it up, sit back, relax -- then POW ! -- when the action starts you will think you are THERE ! We have been to many C-W concerts and none of them compare to this sensational video. We have played this video probably 60 or 70 times and it is still just as vivid, sharp and crystal clear as the first time we viewed it. Each entertainer is at his awesome best -- If I had to choose just one video that was a "have to buy" this would be it -- you will never be sorry -- Johnny, Willie, Kris & Waylon are all at their very best. Now if all the other video companies could only figure out that THIS IS THE WAY COUNTRY MUSIC SHOULD SOUND!
