On The Mountain (1974) and Nightrider (1975), which gave

I have about 25 live rock concerts on DVD and they are all good. But, this Charlie Daniels concert is incredible. Perfect camera angles, no special effects, no annoying quick cuts, no bad songs. It is now my favorite.

This video archive of the second "Volunteer Jam" captures The Charlie Daniels Band and many of their contemporaries at their best. Years before the mass appeal of the huge hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" in 1979, the CDB was gathering legions of fans the old-fashioned way...by writing and recording great music, but even more importantly, taking it to the people in live concerts. This concert captures that era and that spirit very well.

The list of songs shows how this band and so many others of that time wrote and recorded songs that included long and elaborate "jams" that made the songs last several minutes longer than your usual 3 to 4 minute pop radio hit. That's why this group and so many others didn't have many songs on the radio, but people still bought and enjoyed the heck out of their records. Funny how the CDB is still around, while the acts who had hits in the Top 40 at that time are largely forgotten.

Extended songs like "Birmingham Blues" and "No Place Left to Go" show that song style perfectly, mixing rock, country, blues and jazz all together in one song. Special guests from The Marshall Tucker Band, Dickie Betts from The Allman Brothers Band, and others make this concert even more special.

It's a can't miss purchase if you like mid-70s Southern Rock. If you don't, give this one a try. You just might change your tune.

Rare live footage of some real players. Caldwell Brothers at this time are in their prime, before the fame and it's trappings took them. Great collection of top level talent in a truly historic moment.

I'm 21 years old and just got into CDB recently. I bought a few of their albums from the dollar LP section, and thought they were really good. I found this product and couldn't resist because I've been a Marshall tucker band fan for years.

I knew this DVD was going to be good, but I had no idea it was going to be as good as it is. This is top quality rock and roll played by talented and disciplined musicians. As much as I love Zeppelin, this movie really outshines "The Song Remains the Same" by a longshot. You can tell there was a lot of magic in the air that night. The musicians are really in their element, and the songs are great.

This DVD proves that CDB isn't just a southern rebel rock gimmick, this is a fine tuned, talented, disciplined, passionate band making a serious statement with their musical abilities.

If you have the inkling that you might like this DVD, because you like southern rock, classic rock, great live shows, or whatever, chances are you're going to love this.

Excellent audio in Dolby 5.1 and DTS (did not try 2.0 stereo). Video is a bit poor but plenty good enough to enjoy this concert. The band and the fans obviously have a large time. The music is great stuff - several things I did not know but like now.

I was disappointed in the quality of the video of this concert. You can certainly tell it was done 30 years ago. However, the audio quality is good, and there are many good jam songs on this DVD. Vintage Marshall Tucker is always good to hear, and Charlie Daniels is always great in concert. Since I couldn't be there when it happened, this was nice to see.

I was there that night. September 12th, 1975, MTSU's Murphy Center. Tickets were priced low, and it went on for hours. Granted, with today's HD TVs, and players, the video hasn't aged well, but the audio is still great !!!
Having also attended the World Premiere, with Charlie, Toy, and the rest of the boys, I really waited a long time for this to come out on home video.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Charlie Daniels was the first concert I ever saw.

This vid was a great representation of the band back then.

These days Charlie Daniels is more known for his right wing jingoistic stuff and like Ted Nugent only secondarily as a musician.

This performance sort of takes me back and reminds me of the "Long Haired Country Boy" and what great instrumentalists he and his whole band was sort of before he kind of became the people he parodied in "Uneasy Rider"

On the long jams forgot how much his sound recalls the Allmans and I think this really shows a person who may only know the "Country" Charlie Daniels what an amazing instrumental group CDB was. His guitar and bass players especially shine and the camera really catches the interaction of the musicians.

Thanks for the memories!
