Including ALL 3 videos previously released in full all on one DVD disc.
what a great idea!
unfortunately the package is misleading!
All 3 videos are there , but they have been edited.
some songs have been ommitted.
I went searching for particular parts only to find myself wondering how I could have missed it. Well I didn't miss it because it isn't there.
you can even tell where the cuts were made if you watch closely.
overall it is Merle Haggard and there is no other DVD available so this is all you can get excited over
Be forewarned that all 3 videos have been edited.
they are not the same as the original vhs releases.
Merle gets 5 stars
this release gets 3 stars just for getting it on DVD.
otherwise it is only 2 stars
without this release there would be no Merle on DVD.
so I guess we should be thankful we got this!
until a better release comes along
Merle's voice is unreal, and his band is tight and right on the mark.
The camera angles, etc. really pull you in to the 'essence' of each show, and the audio is, in my opinion, CD quality and worthy of praise for a live recording.. very well done
A MUST HAVE FOR MERLE/COUNTRY FANS!!! PERIOD!
If you're looking for a Garth Brooks or Shania Twain glitz and glimmer Vegas-style concert.. look elsewhere. This is a songwriter and poet at work here, and the SONGS and the SINGER are the show.
Disappointing, however was the fact that the songlist on the back cover shows 'My Favorite Memory', which is not present... Willie appears for "Sing Me Back Home", but the cover indicates that he also appears on 'Just Stay Here and Drink'.. which does not appear at all until the second episode/show (and, no Willie). I've viewed this on and off for a couple days.. and I either blinked, looked away, etc. but I did not see Mr. Paycheck at all.
There are other inconsistencies with what the back indicates, and what's really there, but it does NOT take away from what IS there. I was really looking forward to seeing what the cover SAYS is there, so a small bit of frustration was initially present.
I believe some editing took place after the packaging had already been finished.
If you're even CONSIDERING this item (which you obviously are, or you wouldn't be reading this).. JUST CLICK "BUY".. You'll love it!
remember,tapes will eventually wear out, dvd"s dont!! i collect rock,and rock and roll,but this dvd has become a permanent part of my collection.if you really like merle you are gonna like this!
only negative thing i can say is there doesn"t seem to be any johnny paycheck performance? this doesn"t bother me because i dont know anything about him anyway. danny.

i like merle but i should have ordered a different one with better songsPublished 24 months ago by Grace Seitz
I've watched this a hundred times easily. Sure the video/audio isn't perfect, it's pretty generic. The shows are stellar. Especially the Concord pavillion. Read morePublished on November 8, 2013 by I'm Just a Man
