"This is another addition to the excellent My Music concert series seen on PBS. Unfortunately due to the fact that many of real country music's pioneers are no longer with this, many of the performers on the show may not be recognizable to the devotees of the current Nashville pop music masquerading as country music, but it is a stellar lineup of some of country music's legends. One performances (Patti Page) is taken from a previous concert, but all the rest of these performances were original to this concert. There were some archival performances (Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, etc) shown during the PBS broadcast of this show, but they are not on this DVD. For all that, however, it is an excellent show and I would highly recommend it.

"Growing up in the '50s and '60s, I remember the songs on this set very well. This is a good review of one off hits like the Browns "Three Bells" (I couldn't stand that song as a kid but kind of enjoy it now), the Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall",Floyd Cramer's "Last Date", "Detroit (I want to go home)", "Abilene", "El Paso" (notice the city name theme), and a host of others. All the major players are represented, Johnny Horton (Battle of New Orleans), Hank Snow (Movin' On), Patsy Cline (I Fall to Pieces), Johnny Cash (Ring of Fire), on and on and on. However, its for the more obscure hits that you should purchase this set. A great overview of the period. Hey, I discovered that Webb Pierce was a real rockin' musician!! Bet many of you didn't know that either!! The most interesting stuff is the '50s and '60s. The '70s goes into the Willie and Waylon (and similar artists)thing which you probably have on other collections. However, the sound quality is great and the early stuff fantastic!! If you like country music, buy it!! If you like country music and want to drive someone crazy who does not like traditional country, buy it BIG TIME!!"

"I had seen a PBS broadcast using this set as a reward for a membership drive. The show highlighted these songs using the original videos and I was engrossed in memories. So I ordered this set and was pleasantly surprised that 'SHOUT' records had done a supurb job of compiling and remastering these songs. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a country music compilation that covers so much in just 3 discs."
