"I was in the audience in Ottawa when he taped his trip across Canada. Although I have not seen the dvd yet (have ordered it already from another source), I can tell you that Charley sang all of his greatest hits. Charley is a funny man on stage when he talks to the audience and puts soul and feeling behind his every song. From someone who was actually there, don't miss your chance to own this live concert on DVD."
Where's the quality?

"I bought this because Charley Pride is one of my favorite Country artists. Be warned however...this DVD plays in a small rectangle inside your big beautiful 16:9 HD TV, leaving so much valuable screen real estate to go to waste. Why, why would they do this to us? My advice? Pass on this, demand better, take a stand. Ask these producers, "are you nuts?" Give us a concert DVD that fills the ENTIRE screen and not just one small rectangle in the middle...this is 2010 and there is no excuse for this kind of rubbish. Also be aware...most of his big hits are done in medley form. Yeah. Bottom line? This is rubbish. If I could do it all over again I would not have bought this.
If you're thinking about the other Charley Pride DVD, be warned...that also is rubbish. It was shot in the 70's and it looks as if it was shot on a consumer VHS camcorder and simply transferred to DVD the video quality is just horrible. It is also displayed in 4:3 format.
Is it possible to produce a DVD that is fitting for this legendary singer? Maybe one day we will have that. This DVD however is not it. As a matter of fact it is downright disrespectful to Charley Pride. He deserves better. So do we."
