Movie Reviews

The Best Bluegrass Video Ever?
William Miller | Kirkwood, MO USA | 11/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) produced this film back in the early 90s, it captured one of the best bands of all time in their formative home environment. Mitch Jayne still had some hearing, Pop Dillard was very much alive, and the family and neighbors all came around for some spectacular music and stories.The band never sounded better.

For those looking for the "Darlin Boys", you'll be disappointed. These are real Missouri country people, not a television stereotype. Rodney's wife, a fine clawhammer banjo player, picks one, there is some down home dancing, and some interesting interviews; but it's mostly about the music the Dillards made over their amazing career.

The VHS has long been unavailable. The DVD will have to be an improvement on both the video and the sound. It's been too long coming, but thank goodness it is available again."

"A Night In The Ozarks was filmed live at a Salem, Missouri farmhouse, welcoming the audience into their living room as the boys rehearse for a show. We see The Dillards family and friends' spirited live performances of their best-known songs. Featuring the original line-up of The Dillards - Rodney and Douglas Dillard, Mitch Jayne and Dean Webb - this documentary also features a special appearance by Homer Dillard Sr., the family patriarch whose incredible musicianship and energy interact with the boys to bring the family together in a memorable demonstration of the real Dillard sound. The documentary was produced and conceived by John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, who attributes The Dillards' musical and performing influence on him as the main catalyst that led to NGDB's landmark album Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Includes a new bonus feature with John McEuen discussing the making of this documentary. Previously available only via mail order, A Night In The Ozarks has been unavailable for over 10 years.
Front porch singin'

"The Dillards are from my home town and are good friends of my family. The porch scenes were filmed at the Fiebleman farm at Howes Mill, MO. I enjoyed seeing some of my family members as they gathered around the porch.
The music is pure Ozarks bluegrass. Each of the band members is very talented. There's nothing like sitting on the porch listening to the Dillards.

Very Enjoyable!

"I bought this DVD for my father who is a big fan of The Dillards. I watched most of it with him and I liked the "down home" feel of it. Much of it is filmed at their home and you feel like a guest in their living room as they talk, play music, dance and laugh. Would recommend to anyone who is a fan of The Dillards or bluegrass music."
