This DVD is a compilation of three different concerts of the Hag, two set in the early 80's and one in the 70's. That is the type of sound quality you get here, very poor quality......they advertise it as digital sound but don't be fooled. The video aspect is also poor quality, one concert shot in a football stadium in the middle of a sunny day makes for a very boring lack-lustre ambience. This one should have stayed in VHS format. This DVD is an Insult to the people that expect Quality material out of their new investment. The Hag has done some excellent "real digital" concerts lately, surely the producers at Brentwood Video will replace this DVD with a Quality Product!

finally! a Merle Haggard DVD - yeee-haw!
Including ALL 3 videos previously released in full all on one DVD disc.
what a great idea!
BUT
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

Don't know what the previous reviewer was looking for, but I LOVE this video. You get a glimpse of Merle in 3 different stages of his career. The first back in the '70's when Merle was the premier country act, evident by the fact Willie Nelson and Johnny Paycheck were opening acts and appear briefly on stage. The second is early/mid 80's and Merle has aged, but still sounds great singing ballad after ballad, and the third is a TNN concert special Merle did in the late 80's, still sounding great wether it be singing, playing his guitar, or playing the fiddle. I enjoyed it so much I'm considering buying a second copy as a backup.

As a lifelong fan of the Hag and a viewer of many of his concerts both in person and on the tube, I was very dissappointed with this compilation. The sound and video quality is a total insult to any DVD owner that expects good quality for his/her investment. In this day and age of digital video and sound there is no excuse for over-marketing this trash. I have never watched it after my initial trial run.

First... All three of these shows are wonderful, and should serve as a good lesson to aspiring musicians and singers just what it means to SOUND fantastic in concert, and leave the cheesy, flashy junk to the teenies.
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!

i wasnt a merle haggard fan,my mother is, so i bought this dvd to make a tape for her, guess what?, i am now a merle haggard fan.the first two concerts are the best in my humble opinion, the first is a daylight concert in a stadium and the fans are jumping so hard in the upper section that the stadium got worried and asked the fans to please stop for their own safety! merle is younger at this concert.the second concert is great! close up camera work shows alot of feeling in his ballads!
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.
