"As a fan - this DVD is priceless. It's literally like being in the living room with long time friends. Their performances are excellent, relaxed, humorous, and impromptu. For example Chet says, "Play something, Jerry. I forgot my capo," and walks off the stage; and where everyone tries to help Jerry plug in his guitar.As a musician - I was disappointed with the camera work. Too many close ups of faces during key guitar solos. Close ups of the right hand picking, but never a close up of the left hand soloing. The camera person was obviously not a guitar player and didn't seem to know when a solo started or ended, or sometimes who was even playing it. Nevertheless, Chet's hilarious, but very credible distorted whammy bar rock solo, and his inability to pull off a riff in The Claw, were just two priceless moments of humor and humanity from these two flawless masters of the guitar."
Chet & Jerry = 2 geniuses

"Even though Chet has passed on, I think he will always be remembered as the class person that he was. So mild and easy going and seemed so nice. And will always be given the credit as a GREAT guitar picker, of any and all genres. Jerry, on the other hand, I don't think has nearly the recognition that he deserves. He's proven over and over that he's right up there with Chet. These albums with Chet attest to that fact. Let someone please recognize him and elect him into the CMHOF while he is still alive. I am in the throes (it's difficult) of reading that book about Elvis (Careless Love, by Peter Guralnick). In it, Elvis wants to record "Guitar Man". But he nor his back-ups can get it right. The way Jerry did it. (Well, what did they expect? Jerry wrote the darn song.) So someone says "you've just got to get Jerry to come and do it himself". So he has his "people" call Jerry to come to the studio and record it with him. Elvis is thrilled to death. It was just as he wanted it to be. After it's done, Kernel (Yes the "korny kernel" as I call him. He was NOT a Colonel. That title has to be earned). Anyhow, Kernel and his people try to badger Jerry into giving them publishing/copyrights to the song, or selling to them. Jerry stood his ground. They weren't getting it. And they shouldn't have called him off of his fishing trip to begin with. If they had just told him in the beginning what the deal was that they wanted, he wouldn't have wasted their time. GOOD for Jerry. I guess up to that point, Elvis had always gotten what he wanted. Not this time. JERRY BELONGS IN THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME with Chet and the others."

"This was interesting dvd. Jerry Reed was a hoot. Includes Alison Krauss's ex-husband playing electric guitar with the great one, Chet Atkins and the creative Jerry Reed. You'll treasure this dvd and watch it over and over! Got to have it!!!"

"I was dissappointed in this DVD. Mr. Reed acted like he really did not
want to play. Both of these men are great and talented guitar players but
something was missing in this program. The video and audio were also dissappointing.
