Classic country at it's best
Jack L. Brown | 07/12/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is an excellent collection from Gannaways "Tribute to the Grand Ole Opry Stars of the Fifties", resp. Classic Country Shows. It is a must-buy for every classic country fan.
Originally filmed in the 50's in colour - picture and sound quality is very good
IMPORTANT : This DVD is playable in nearly all regions worldwide"
They were country when country was still cool

"If your idea of a Ray Price song is "Danny Boy" and if you like Jim Reeves but didn't know he recorded a song called "Mexican Joe", you probably won't like this fine DVD. However, if you can remember when Jim Reeves had fiddles - not violins - in his band, and you can recall a time when Ray Price ruled the Post-Hank world with the 4/4 shuffle beat and twin fiddles, you're in for a real treat.For starters, with the exception of "Mexican Joe", I've never been a big Jim Reeves fan, but that's not big deal, because not only does this disc have my favorite Jim Reeves song, the other ones aren't that bad, especially since Jimmy Day is playing steel guitar on most of them.But since I really like Ray Price, it doesn't matter if it's Jim Reeves or Jim Nabors footage on the DVD, because the Ray Price performances are classic. Of course, "Crazy Arms" is here. So are "I'll Be There", "You Done Me Wrong" and "Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes". The only early Ray Price hits that are missing are "Release Me" and "Heartaches By The Number", but that can easily be overlooked on the strength of the songs that are present on this collection.If this review was an infomercial, this would be the part where the voiceover says, "But wait! There's more!" In addition to Jim Reeves and Ray Price, there are seven Ernest Tubb performances included. Most of E.T.'s big hits are on Shanachie's highly recommended Ernest Tubb/Marty Robbins DVD, but there's some great Ernest Tubb tunes here, especially "That Wild and Wicked Look" and the divorce weeper, "Dear Judge".All the footage on this disc was filmed between 1954 and 1956, before Nashville replaced the fiddle and steel guitar with flutes and oboes in attempt to regain fans lost to the Rock & Roll juggernaut. It might seem corny to today's country music fans, but this is the real deal, folks... in glorious mono and vibrant technicolor."
Awesome, especially Jim Reeves

"I consider Jim Reeves the greatest singer who ever lived and this video only confirms it even more. The additional appearances by Ray Price and Tubb also contribute to its potential wide appeal. But Jim Reeves is just unbelievable."
Grand Ole Opry Stars of the 1950's

"I purchased this video several months ago and have watched it many times. All the performers did a great job, but I especially liked the rousing numbers done by Ray Price. The color and picture quality were quite good considering the fact that these performances were filmed from 1954 thru 1956. I would reccomend this video to anyone who enjoys the Grand Ole Opry Stars of the 1950's."
