5.0 out of 5 stars Best DVD in My Collection October 16, 2005
By TLW
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD after friends were raving about it from our Leon Russell yahoogroup. They guaranteed it to be well worth the investment and they were right!

To see Willie, Leon Russell and Ray Charles singing A SONG FOR YOU was priceless!!! Brought tears to my eyes!!

I was surprised over and over to see all my favorite country music artists and some rock n roll favorites come out to help Willie celebrate his birthday! Amazing DVD!! Great buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Music August 8, 2008
By Ken M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this mainly to see the bonus tracks. I already have the music CD.

Bonus tracks:

Whiskey River - I get the feeling that this performance was the way Willie intended it to be. Not a drunken beer drinking song, but just some more classic Willie, singing the way he wants to sing.

Dreams Come True - With Norah Jones. Norah is an artist, a great voice, an excellent piano player. This may have been cut to avoid upstaging some of Willie's other guests, or maybe even Willie?. Excellent performance.

Do Right Woman - With Sheryl Crow. Sheryl is one of the few. A great artist with a great voice. Sheryl and Willie together, no matter what they may perform is well worth watching. I think one of the girls in the back missed a Que and sang a note at the wrong time. You all try to find it. Excellent performance.

Help Me Make It Through the Night - With Kris K. I will agree that Kris is one of those singers you either love or ?. Kris and Willie together, good stuff!

Jumpin' Jack Flash - Performed by Leon Russell. You could tell Leon had fun with this song. Another excellent performance by another great talent. The only minus was that the audience was not blind drunk and acting like fools, as some would expect an audience to act with a song like this, or Whiskey River.

I would have paid the price of this DVD just for these bonus tracks.

If you enjoy any of the above mentioned artists, you will be happy with this DVD.

Oh! And I forgot to mention that the other tracks are just great. Some of Willie's friends are different from the traditional country blah ...

That is why I like Willie and any performer that he may choose to bring on stage. They may be a little different, but they are great artists in their own field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating bit of sociology September 2, 2005
Format:DVD
This is a strange bird of a DVD. For one thing, it contrasts the problems with watered-down, blown-up, and talent-lacking country music industry of today, with the rich talents of yesterday's country music scene, as well as the wealth of talent in other genres of new and current music. And for another thing, it's very entertaining to see Wyclef Jean freestyle rapping in front of a room full of mortified country fans.

It starts off well enough, with Willie performing an adequate rendition of one of his standards. And one would think a duet with Shania Twain doing "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" would be at least passable. But instead, Shania comes off sounding more like Celine Dion. Willie was completely unable to keep up, due to this very strange, overdone, and bland style of singing. Contrast that to Norah Jones who can sing with Willie incredibly beautifully and works with his style like a musical instrument in of itself. And she isn't even a country singer!

I would also like to know exactly how many Kenny Chesney fans will buy this DVD. The guy looks like a gay porn star. He actually makes me appreciate the originality of Garth Brooks. Sorry Garth, that was a bit cruel. In school one day, a couple of students said they liked country. Our teacher immediately asked "Willie Nelson?" They said "No, he's too old. We like Kenny Chesney!"

Notwithstanding, there are some great songs. When Ray Charles sang "A Song for You," I was crying right along with Willie. The Ray Price songs are fantastic and show Willie still has it after all these years. Paul Simon sings "Homeward Bound" in near perfect duet with Willie, not to mention a great guitar solo via Trigger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Willie Nelson and Friends-Live and Kickin' March 25, 2006
Format:DVD
A must for true fans of Willie! Recorded to celebrate his 70th birthday, it features a host of stars guesting with Willie, incl. Paul Simon,Kris Kristofferson,Kenny Chesney and too many others to mention here. My personal favourite is a tongue in cheek number with Toby Keith and Scotty Emerick called "I'll never smoke weed with Willie again, which Willie himself was obviously hearing for the first time.It's very funny! Also the bonus features are certainly worth mentioning especiall Willie's duet with Kris,Help me make it through the night. Wonderful, I'd recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars Willie/Ray/Leon are priceless. May 4, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The set with Willie, Ray Charles and Leon Russel alone is worth the price of this DVD. The bonus sets are better than some of the sets that made the main DVD...be sure to watch them. I am very happy that I have this for my collection....but didn't understand a couple of the performers that were included for a party for Willie...but what do I know.
