Product Description

It's a simple concept: find the best songwriters around and sit them down onstage. It's worked many times over the years. But there was something beyond special about this particular night in September 1996. We not only had some of the finest songwriters but some of the living legends of country music - kindred spirits who had seen and done it all. Except for something like this. Willie, Waylon, Kris, Billy Joe, Kimmie. They might as well have been in your living room; to them, the cameras were invisible. Each played a few of their favorite songs- "remember whens" and laughs. There were plenty of laughs that night, amid the sense that what we were seeing and hearing might never happen again. It all came together at the end with Willie's familiar refrain, "On the Road Again."

Though the "outlaw" tag is a little tired at this late date, this 1996 recording from the Austin City Limits series (also available on DVD) represents an appealing country tradition, the "guitar pull." Such intimate, informal, round-robin performances, whether in a club or somebody's living room, find songwriters taking turns sharing material, much of it new or previously unrecorded, for their mutual enjoyment. All of the artists gathered on this Austin soundstage (which might as well be their living room) are Texas treasures, and most are national legends. Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson teamed together in the Highwaymen (who frequently performed Nelson's "We Don't Run," which they reprise here). Nelson has long been a champion of Billy Joe Shaver's songwriting, while Jennings recorded an entire album of Shaver's songs. The angel-voiced Kimmie Rhodes sings one duet with Nelson and another song she wrote with Jennings. Acoustic guitars and impromptu harmonies abound, and there's never a setlist. Highlights are as funny as Jennings's "I'd Have Been Out of Jail" (basically a barroom tale leading to the title punch line) and as chilling as Shaver's a cappella "First and Last Time." After Jennings strikes a religious chord with "I Do Believe," Rhodes takes a spiritual turn with "Espiritu Santo Bay," Shaver responds with "You Can't Beat Jesus Christ," Nelson offers "Too Sick to Pray," and Kristofferson previews the then-new "Pilgrim's Progress." The performance ends with the best-known tune, Nelson's "On the Road Again," which becomes a collective celebration of the joys of "making music with my friends." --Don McLeese

This is the third installment of the Austin City Limits series I've purchased and I have yet to be disappointed. Outlaw Country is a rare look at some truly revolutionary country artists. They all play off each other very well and the overall feel of the show is very relaxed- just a group of writers singing songs that mean something to them. Kris, Waylon, and Willie have played together many times before and seem to truly enjoy it. None of them disappoint. Kimmie Rhodes more than holds her own among the legends. The only weak points in the show for me were Billie Joe Shaver's performances. I'm a fan of his work, but here he just doesn't seem quite up to his usual level. Only a minor complaint, however. The bottom line is if you're into any of these artists and would like to see them in a lower key setting, you really can't go wrong. Waylon's "I'd Have Been Out of Jail" is worth the price alone, especially since this seems to be the only recording of it available.

Yes I agree with the other reviews that the artists on this release are all GREAT & that Nat West "live At Austin" has generally been of the most high standard.
Which is why this dvd surprises me. Only 47 minutes with at least 30 minutes of sensational material missing !!!
eg. Willie singing "sitting in limbo", Kris "here comes that rainbow again" & his song about Sam Peckinpah, BillyJoe "live forever" etc etc
They've also omitted a lot of amusing banter.
This could have been one of the BEST in the series but it's turned out far less than it should have been

I bought it for a dear friend of mine as a Xmas gift this year....I have this wonderful performance myself and do so enjoy the artists and the songs they sing...A Laidback and Happy Gathering of some of the BEST in True Country Music, just having a good time and that they gave me :) ...Have been a Waylon and Willie Fan for over 46 years and have come to love BJS's music over the past 15 years....I simply love this Performance and any Waylon, Willie, Billy Joe Shaver and Kris Kristofferson Fan who enjoys a good time would surely enjoy it as much as I do.....

None of the guys really sang anything. The banter was not even up to par for them. Willie did best, and his "Too Sick to Pray" was the best performance. What a pity. Could have been good.

I was hoping to add to my Waylon Jennings collection and this DVD does add to the count but doesn't add anything to the music. I was most disappointed in the limited material they all sang and the fact that there was no introduction, closing, or anything else. It was just a recording of Austin City Limits where 3 aging country singers sit around but don't even exchange comments. Most disappointing.

I gave it a three because just seeing the three Highwaymen together was a treat even if they didn't sing anything worth remembering.
