Movie Reviews

One of the best of the era
Robert Meador | New York, NY United States | 08/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Starting in the late 50's, there was a string of country music movies made, perhaps in reaction to the successful string of B rock and roll movies from about the same time. Most of them featured some sort of plot involving rubes getting themselves into all kinds of trouble. But these movies were not just the wacky hi-jinx of hilarious hillbillies; they were the wacky hi-jinx of hilarious hillbillies who had famous country music stars as friends. In other words, the flimsy plots and fading movie stars were just an excuse to showcase a slew of country music stars of the time. Many of the performances were lip-synched, although some were recorded live. The Nashville Sound, which was recorded in 1969, was different. Perhaps influenced by the Pennebaker documentaries of the time, this film had no flimsy plot or corny gags. Instead, it was a serious look at Nashville and the reigning country stars of the day. It's well filmed, thorough, and fascinating to watch. Much of it was filmed at the Grand Ole Opry, but you also get priceless footage such as Loretta Lynn performing for a lunch crowd of radio and record company people, Bashful Brother Oswald singing a chorus of Mountain Dew outside of Ernest Tubb's Record Shop, a rehearsal by the new-to-town Mother Earth (featuring Tracy Nelson), a performance outside Shelby Singleton's house, a recording session featuring Doug Kershaw and a young, beardless Charlie Daniels, and lots more. There is also lots of great footage of Nashville itself. All the performances are outstanding, and the film does a terrific job of capturing the essence of country music at the time-- performers, fans, and industry people. I was waiting a long time for this to come out on DVD!"
A Must for Any Country Fan

"If they were big in country history you better believe they're on this DVD. Everyone from Johnny Cash to Loretta Lynn and even Dolly Parton took part in this celebration of the 44th anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry. There are amazing live performances from tons of the biggest names in country as well as interviews with them and a few new faces. They've even got old footage from way back in country history. Definitely not something you want to miss."

"Country music doesn't get any better then this great music great artists. One of many in my DVD collection I watch over and over again. A must for any classic country music fan."
Skeeter Davis is NOT in this movie
David R. Cook | Sarasota, Florida | 08/02/2007

"I loved this movie for the footage of the Grand Ole Opry in 1969, but I was led to believe that Skeeter Davis sang "End Of The World" in it. She doesn't. She's not in the movie at all."
