An essential piece of Classic Country history and a must for country fans. Thank you Larry Black!

Country music fans owe a major debt to country music (and, at one time, rock & roll) deejay and TV producer, Larry Black for this 2-DVD set as well as others he has produced and released through his Gabriel Communications Company. There's another review of the set here on Amazon but that just provides the musical contents. Sure there are 29 songs in this set but those take just over an hour. The two DVDs in this volume run almost FOUR hours! And it's what goes on between the music that - at least for me - was the real reason these DVDs are so important - as well as entertaining.

While this set has been available for over six years I just discovered it last month and have spent many hours immersed in the pleasures of it.

A bit a background: In 2005 the jovial Black (who now produces a cable TV show called "Larry's Country Diner" featuring country music guests), booked a Nashville TV studio for a few days and invited 27 country music legends to come, sit in the studio in chairs set up "in the round" to swap stories and sing songs they either wrote or made famous. Black kept the cameras rolling to catch every moment. The concept worked so well that he invited some of the folks back in subsequent years and added new ones. Sadly some died before they could return and these precious documents may well be the last recorded appearances of some of them. The "host" of this first show is country singer/songwriter Bill Anderson who, like nearly all the folks on the DVD, is a member of the Grand Ole Opry. But, after the first 30 minutes or so of "facilitating" by Anderson, the participants carry the ball the rest of the way.

I bought Country Family Reunion, 1&2. Without a doubt it is the best, the greatest, and beyond what I expected. I stayed up half the night watching them even though I had to be up at 6 to go to work. If you have any doubts, please clear them. They are wonderful videos. I only wish Amazon had the Looking Back series. It is well worth any money spent on these dvds. I hope to get all of them eventually. There are some funny scenes, and also some touching scenes. When you see Larry Black on the video, you will be surprised. He still looks the same, but you can see the difference the years make. And Bill Anderson never ages. Just gets better. I highly recommend that you try at least one of the DVDs. You will be left wanting more.

The programs were great but we were disappointed that it was not captioned. Many elderly people have hearing problems and they are the ones who would most enjoy these videos.

Bought this entire series 2 or 3 years ago. Recently I discovered that one of my DVD's was broken. Found this set on Amazon and purchased. It worked perfectly and replaced the broken one. Great buy.

These are the country singers and artists that I grew up listening to. It brings back memories of watching country music shows with my grandparents. I wish they were still around to share this with. I enjoy their stories and music. Reminds me of the old "jam" sessions musicians used to have in my part of the country.

Great DVD for providing a historical record of the old country and western performers and their music. This style of music has been disappearing from the music scene for years. If you go to Nashville today, it is hard to find traditional C&W music being performed. Same thing in New Orleans with Dixieland Jazz. C&W and Dixieland have been replaced with very loud rock and pop style music.
