Of course the greatest living country singer would be George "Possum" Jones. As Emmylou Harris stated in an interview on the DVD, he needs no introduction. He needs no dancers, or smoke screens or anything else like that. He is a living legend and is quite simply one of the greatest singers of any genre of music to ever walk the face of the Earth. In a concert format, several country stars, old and new, pay tribute to Jones by singing some of his most classic, greatest hits. Most of the instantly recognizable ones are here, such as "A Picture of Me Without You", "The Grand Tour", "The Race is On", and "She Thinks I Still Care", and many more. There are also a few less known ones, such as "One of These Days". George Jones wraps it all up with his biggest hit, and the greatest country song ever recorded, "He Stopped Loving Her Today". I personally would have liked to see a few more well known ones but this is still a superb DVD in honor of Jones, with great sound and picture quality.

I have always said that no one can sing a George Jones like George Jones. Well, I was wrong. Up until I bought this Concert Tribute, I thought the only one who even came close was Aaron Neville singing The Grand Tour. I never liked Randy Travis, but boy can he sing George Jones songs. Also I loved Vince Gill, Lorrie Morgan, Trace Adkins, Kenny Chesney, Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride and Joe Diffie. But Uncle Kracker, Sammy Kershaw and Amy Grant blew me away!!! My only sour note was watching Harry Connick Jr. butcher one of George's greatest songs, She Thinks I Still Care. I totally refuse to listen to him on this concert. I hit the skip button the minute he comes on. Buy this concert if you want to see some great George Jones' songs being performed by outstanding performers.

Now this is REAL COUNTRY MUSIC, thru and thru.
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
56 minutes.

The 2 Disc DVD is fabulous.But we bought the DVD for the selection"50,000 names on the Wall" We have been doing fund raising to bring in "The Wall That Heals" the Vietnam Memorial Moving Wall. We played that constantly at our booth.It sure grabbed alot of peoples attention. As I said the entire set is wonderful and well worth every penny.Thank you,Nancy

The content is great. The sound is beautiful. The photography is colorful and crisp. But... the video is incredibly poorly synced with the sound, and this is throughout the dvd and variable from second to second. I just glance up at the screen from time to time while listening.
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 **.

I watched this on YouTube and loved it so much that I ordered it on Amazon. This is something I'll watch over and over again and enjoy every time. What a great tribute. As much as I love Harry Connick's singing, his was the only song I didn't care for. He did it in his style, not George's. Sometimes, country is best left to those who feel it. This is well worth owning.

The concert and performances would be well worth owning, except...

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.

Thanks.

For George Jones, what better tribute one can have, than a good one you can enjoy while you still can. This tribute is meaningful by those who have been inspired by George Jones, those who call him the best. The entertainers present are Vince Gill, George Jones, Alan Jackson, Trace Adkins, Kenny Chesney, EmmyLou Harris, Martina McBride, Kris Kristofferson, Shelby Lynne, Wynonna, Joe Diffie, Trick Pony, Uncle Kracker.

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
