Movie Reviews

Documentary traces the life and times of Bob Wills
07/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bob Wills etched his way into America's heart with his whoops and hollers, his dancing fiddle and the inimitable sound of his band, the Texas Playboys. This original documentary by director Gary Don Rhodes takes a nostalgic look back at the heyday of Wills and his Playboys, from their early days at KVOO radio -- "The Voice of Oklahoma" -- to the packed dance floor at the legendary Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, and on to national fame from Las Vegas to Hollywood's silver screen.#1354 (61 min, B&W, Hi-Fi)"
Poor Quality
Jon Vesey | New York, NY USA | 08/17/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Although the content of this DVD is quite interesting, be forwarned that the quality of production is quite amatuerish. The lighting, framing and achival sources are all incredibly low quality. Also, the copy which was used to transfer to DVD has many video problems.

That said, it has some rare interviews with Eldon Shamblin, Johnny Gimble and other Playboys. Most everyone from this legendary band is mentioned . . . . . . . with the BLARING OMISSION of Tiny Moore? Possibly the greatest soloist to perform with the Playboys. Odd. Some great clips, but most can be found on other compilations in higher quality."
Fiddlin' Man

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great DVD bringing past performances of Bob Wills and His Texas
Playboys to life, and interviews which give a good insight into the era
and devolepment of this musical style."
