"just knowing that johnnie taylor has another video coming out is a 5 star because i know that he just show out, and i know it is good. the man has been a big part of my life since the sixties when he was singing with the soul stirrers and i've been listing to him every since then up until the day he pass away and i haven't stop.if i had a choice i would listen to johnnie taylor 24 hours a day 7 days a week, because when sings you can't do nothing but listen because talking and singing about everyday life.and it is as though he is singing just to me. i love the man and always will. especially when he sings it just don't pay to get up the morning his words are so true, and darling i love you, i could go on and on. i have all 30 cd's and one video live in dallas and live an the longhorn ballroom will just add to my collection and whatever else you have about him i would to get it"

"I would've given this DVD a 5 star rating but the DVD begins with the introduction of Johnnie Taylor's band performing 25 minutes before Johnie Taylor walks out on stage. That's my only negative about the DVD.
Although Johnnie does stay on stage for an hour performing songs like 'Who's Makin' Love", "Last Two Dollars", "Sending you a Kiss", "Good Love", "Disco Lady" etc. He even does a duet with his Daughter "Tasha" singing "Ain't That Lovin' You".
This DVD was recorded in 1997 when Johnnie was touring off the "Good Love" CD which was the highlight of Johnnie Taylor career at Malaco.
We all know that the "Good Love' CD is indeed a classic so you won't go wrong picking up this DVD seeing a legend at his finest.
At the end of this DVD Malaco Records honor him and give tribute to his passing on May 31, 2000."
Skip The Opening Number and Enjoy

"The Dvd Begins with a Long Jam from Taylor's Backing Band that is truly pointless and tiring...Utilize the Menu option and begin with Cut #2, and You will witness a stirring Live Performance, Outstanding Camera Work and many upclose views of Johnnie Taylor in impassioned Vocalization, Sweat pouring off His Face, Dirty Southern Soul/R&B at its Finest. A few Hits juxtaposed by some Excellent Blues, and a Fine Duet with Cute Daughter Tasha Taylor. I attended Taylor's Longhorn Ballroom Concert in 1996, 15 Months prior to this One, I had hoped this DVD was from THAT Show, but This one was probably better (The Show I went to had Taylor Cursing a mildly unruly crowd ("Sit Your Black Ass Down!"), and threatening to leave early, which He did, for about 10 minutes during "Cheaper to Keep Her", before returning)...Excellent Vocal phrasing, as usual, lots of quick Camera Pans that Work seamlessly to give the Viewer the feeling He is actually THERE...I Generally Disdain Live Concert Videos, but this One is Thumbs Up!!!"
