Some of Nashville's biggest stars
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 12/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is on of eight DVDs featured in a great Time-Life collection of classic country music performances from Grand Ole Opry legends such as Patsy Cline, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Ray Price, ernest Tubb and Johnny Cash. In addition to some of the biggest stars in Nashville, you also get some of the biggest songs, with classics such as "Coal Miner's Daughter," "Ring Of Fire," "Crazy" and others. Marty Robbins sings "El Paso," Willie Nelson belts out a medley of his early hits, Don Gibson croons "I Can't Stop oving You," and the Statler Brothers give a jaunty rendition of "Flowers On The Wall." Fun stuff!

This disc includes fifteen live performances (and no lip-syncing, as far as I can tell...) along with bonus features such as interviews with various Opry veterans. The material is drawn from old Opry TV broadcasts and other venues such as "The Bobby Lord Show" and other, long-forgotten shows that were the country equivalents of "Soul Train" and "American Bandstand." The video quality is very good and the sound quality is excellent -- it's a chance to see many of the biggest stars in Nashville playing real, honest country music, the way it used to be. This collection is a true gift -- highly recommended! (DJ Joe Sixpack / Slipcue music reviews)"
Excellent. A Must Buy For Classic Country Fans

"I bought the entire Grand Old Opry series. But this is the one I play over and over again. It brings back such great memories. Donna Fargo, Dottie West, Barbara Fairchild, Patsy Cline, just to name a few. I feel like I am 25 years old again and it is 1973. This is a must buy for any classic country music fan."

"Joe Sixpack's review is exact but he forgot to mention Tammy Wynette is also here. I found it entertaining and enjoyable. This is early performances of George Jones(I prefer the newer George Jones) and others but does not take anything away. GOOD!!!!!!!!"
