Product Description

From the vaults of the award-winning PBS Austin City Limits TV show, this is the latest release in the acclaimed Live From Austin, TX series.

Although Eliza Gilkyson was born in Los Angeles, Texas likes to claim her as one of its own. Maybe it s because her songs have that deeply personal, plaintive, raw quality typical of so many of Texas best writers. Music is certainly in her blood, being the daughter of folk singer Terry Gilkyson, who penned such classics as Greenfields, Marianne, and Memories are Made of This. She started writing and recording her own songs as a teenager, then moved to New Mexico and raised a family at the end of the sixties, developing a loyal fan base in the Southwest and Texas. She cut numerous records, and in 1984 made her first appearance on Austin City Limits.

This show was recorded around the 2000 release of Hard Times In Babylon, which quickly turned into a critical success. The collection of songs, which she describes as a diary of a season of love and loss, reveals a uniquely intimate style, shaped by her personal experiences and her need to stay true to her muse.

This DVD, recorded live on August 13, 2001 in 5.1 surround sound, captures all the hits and more, and includes songs that were never aired on the original TV broadcast.

What's the matter CRAZYJACK is your shift key broken? For everyone's edification it says in several places that the concert was recorded on August 13, 2001 but the DVD was copyrighted in 2007. I'm sure Eliza is not owned by the record company, but the rights to that concert are owned by Austin City Limits. Eliza does not mention the DVD on her website nor is it listed in her Wikipedia entry. I too wish she would produce a longer live concert video as she does concerts so well. Maybe she will someday and lets hope it in blue ray!

I first heard Eliza on a Tom Russell album, singing with him and Joe Ely on the Bob Dylan song Lily, Rosemary and The Jack of Hearts. Since then I have grabbed all her albums, the latest Wonderful World is exceptional.

I watched the DVD in awe, I'm surprised there are no others, because Eliza Gilkyson could just be the current greatest female performer alive.

Like all the DVD's in this Live from Austin Texas series, the sound quality is brilliant.

Every song on this DVD is superb, I've watched it every week since I bought it and I'll never get tired of warching it.

More please Eliza.
