The presentation, sound and color is great.
The words that Vince Gill had to say about George says it all.
A real treasure to be able to sit and listen for 2 hours.
GREAT VALUE from Amazon.
I also purchased "NEVER SAY DIE" the final concert of WAYLON JENNINGS & THE WAYMORE BLUES BAND.
It features his wife Jessie Colter in several songs.
It's a Box Set, well worth the money.DVD(running time 2 hours) and 2 CD's
Don't pass up this opportunity.
Also purchased WAYLON JENNINGS LIVE FROM AUSTIN,TEXAS recorded April 1, 1989.
Features 17 great songs taken from the full concert with great color and sound. It's
Update 8/12/2013: I have upgraded my system to Blu-ray (Oppo), and although my old dvd system (Oppo as well) was not "budget-item", the sync problem has disappeared (still playing the old dvd-disc). Others may have the same problem reading the disc with some dvd players (difficult format, or something?), but my problem is gone. Except for this I would now give 5 stars *****, instead of 2 stars **.
Unfortunately, we had the same DVD video/audio synch problem as some others reported. This was so frequent that the DVD was painful to watch.
The synch problem wasn't as bad played on a computer DVD drive but there were still static "freezes" verifying there is some problem with the DVD manufacture.
We returned this for a refund (thanks Amazon for excellent customer service).
This was the 2-disc version and it seems like it may be a relatively infrequent quality problem because it's difficult to believe this problem was encountered by those giving 4 or 5 star reviews.
We liked this concert enough to try again if there is some chance we could get a good quality DVD or perhaps the 1 disc version doesn't have this problem? Any feedback on the 1 disc version would be welcome as the sync problem comments don't generally indicate which version had the problem.
You will hear the souful sad version of "Grand Tour" by Aaron Neville, and a bluesy twist to "She Thinks I Still Care" with Harry Connick, Jr. And I love the song "Bartender's Blues" beautifully sung by Amy Grant.
Randy Travis sings "Once You've Had the Best" and duets with George for their hit, "A Few Ole Country Boys". And Lori Morgan sings the song she also made a hit, the beautiful "Picture of You". Connie Smith and George do "Golden Ring"
"Walk Through This World With Me", another beautiful favorite is sung by Tanya Tucker and her voice enhances the lyrics.
Sprinkled through the concert are the entertainer's words about George, and he is honored greatly. They talk about him being down to earth, soulful, genuine, ability to deliver those lyrics, phrases, emotion. Everybody honors George through their words and the bonus material features extended interviews.
Also in the bonus material are two songs/music videos by George. Written by Jamie O'Hara (no mention in the printed material) are 50,000 names (a Vietnam wall) and Cold Hard Truth, an excellent cheating song. O'Hara also did a video on these two songs.
Enjoy this collection!! What a tribute!!.......Rizzo
