"He had a great band back then, with horns added for his typical "country jazz" sound. Hag is in great shape vocally, too. The musicians all excel with great solos. So why only four stars. Just personal taste, I guess. I would have liked to hear songs like "Today I started lovin' you again", "swinging doors" plus other old, bluesy tunes. But, by all means, this is a disc well worth owning. Both picture and sound are top notch."
Merle Haggard - An American Treasure

"This is Merle as he should always be remembered.
A hundred years from now when someone asks "What was Merle Haggard like?". This is the document that should be produced to prove what so many in this lifetime know. Merle is an American Treasure.
Wonderfully recorded here in Austin TX in 1985. This DVD drips with sentimentality and still delivers a punch.
If you only own a single Merle DVD make it this one.
The band is spectacular and Merle hits on all cylinders."
