Classic country duets
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 12/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Another excellent volume in the 8-DVD Time-Life collection of classic country music performances from Grand Ole Opry. This disc focuses on duet singing, with some wonderful performances by teams such as Goldie Hille & Justin Tubb, George Jones & Tammy Wynette (two songs), Bill Anderson & Jan Howard, Porter Wagner & Dolly Parton and -- of course -- Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, the most popular country duet partnership ever. There are several special gems, such as Skeeter Davis and (a very young) Bobby Bare covering the Everly Brothers oldie, "Let It Be Me", Patsy Cline singing a rare duet (with TV host Bobby Lord) and the tragically underrated Melba Montgomery in a sterling performance with the great George Jones.

This disc includes fifteen live performances (and no lip-syncing, as far as I can tell...) along with bonus features such as interviews with various Opry veterans. The material is drawn from old Opry TV broadcasts and other venues such as "The Bobby Lord Show" and other, long-forgotten shows that were the country equivalents of "Soul Train" and "American Bandstand." The video quality is very good and the sound quality is excellent -- it's a chance to see many of the biggest stars in Nashville playing real, honest country music, the way it used to be. This collection is a true gift -- highly recommended! (DJ Joe Sixpack / Slipcue music reviews)"
