Movie Reviews

"It beats digging ditches." - Waylon Jennings
Steven Hellerstedt | 11/19/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An hour of Highwaymen music (sorta) that should at least be enough to satisfy fans of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson. Recorded in 1992 in Aberdeen, Scotland, THE HIGHWAYMEN packs in a LOT of songs into its sixty minute run time. That's a good thing.

Less good, but still alright, is the decision to pack it full of solo greatest hits. So Willie sings `Crazy' and `On the Road Again,' Waylon `Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,' Johnny `Folsom Prison Blues' and `Get Rhythm,' etc., etc. It's nice to have them on disk and everything, but one of the strengths of their albums was the contemporary ballads they'd swap verses on - for instance Robert Earl Keen's `The Road Goes On Forever,' Steve Earle's `The Devil's Right Hand,' and Guy Clark's `Desparados (Waiting for a Train.)' They do sing as a verse-swapping group on some of the songs, like Cash's `Highwayman' and `Ghost Riders in the Sky,' but the group concept takes a definite back seat.

A bad thing is when then plug a short video talking head in during an instrumental bridge or solo. It doesn't happen very often, but it doesn't become any less annoying, either.

As a fan of the solo career of these guys, I liked this dvd quite a bit. The boys are in good voice and the great hits are faithfully rendered.
Don't waste your time on this one.

"Don't wast your time or money on this one. Order the first Highwaymen video. The quality and the sound of this one is horrible.. They all look as if they haven't slept in days and sing like it too. Johnnie doesn't sing as much on this one as the first one. The first video is just excellent...Buy that one!!! I love these guys. What happened to this video? IT IS THE PITS..."
The essential Highwaymen document

(4 out of 5 stars)

""On the Road Again" is a good video portrait of the Highwaymen. This hour long DVD is as close as most will ever come to a Highwaymen show. The camaraderie and bond between Waylon, Willie, Johnny and Kris is as apparent here as it is invisible on the corresponding album. The sentiment that the group is made up of four ol' friends comes across strongly. Relevant interview fragments are sprinkled between and within songs. Regardless of who your favorite Highwayman may be, the song selection is good as the band plays most of the favorites that one would expect like the Dukes of Hazzard Theme, Folsom Prison Blues, Me and Bobby McGee and Riders in the Sky. The United Kingdom may seem like an odd place for a Highwaymen video concert, but the boys explain their connection with the land and people. While the video production is good, the sound could be better. At times, the audio sounds like an audience recording. "On the Road Again," may be the essential document to showcase the Highwaymen's power, talent and warmth."
Get It While You Still Can!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Regardless of the other oddball reviews this DVD is great!
If you like these folks then anything is better than nothing.
Nothing is exactly what you will have without this DVD.Granted the playing and singing has sounded better, but a rare shot video of the boys being who they really are can't be bad.I prefer the stripped down lack luster performances when it is obvious the road/life has brought out the real rugged raw men.You are lucky to have the opportunity to buy this DVD!SO
Get it while you can!"
