"VIRTUALLY FLAWLESS! RANDY MADE THIS DVD RIGHT. HE HAD A CONCERT JUST FOR THE CREATION OF THIS DVD, AND AS HE STATES ON THE DVD; THE CROWD REALLY GOT INTO IT. THE VIDEO IS CRYSTAL CLEAR, THE LIGHTING PERFECT. THE AUDIO IS AWESOME, DOLBY DIGITAL AND DTS, PUTS YOU RIGHT IN THE CONCERT, MY WIFE AND I THOUGHT WE WERE BACK AT ONE OF THE PREVIOUS SHOWS WE HAD SEEN, HOWEVER WITH BETTER SOUND. REFERENCE QUALITY DVD, A MUST OWN FOR ANY RANDY TRAVIS FAN."
Time Does Not Matter With This Album - It Was Worth the Wait

"The long awaited live concert of Randy Travis is finally here. And it was well worth the wait. It is fan-tastic. The acoustics are masterful, lighting is magnificent and the choreography flows so smoothly it is hard to believe that you are not right there in the audience. Veteran live album director Steve Binder has done a stand-up job with this performance. Nothing short of genius. The camera shots, zooms and pans are so creative at times you are right there in front of Randy. Randy's intro is astounding complete with fog and back lighting. I have not experienced this kind of excitement in a live album since Mr. Binder's documentary of Elvis Presley. For me, this album rates as high as Elvis'. Randy is at his most creative, energetic and exuberant. His performance is warm, funny and engaging. He is at home with his audience and performing at his best. Once more his audience is lively, responsive and engaged in his every move. Not subdued like in a lot of live concert performances. The musician's harmonies and performance is outstanding. You can tell that they really enjoy performing with Randy. They are at home with innovative musical style. To conclude this experience, don't miss the bonus material of former President Bush's insight into the real Randy Travis. Randy's own interview gives you insight into the creativity and depth of this man's thoughts. You can grasp a real feeling of genuineness and the love that he has for his music and his acting; especially westerns and being a cowboy at heart. His fondness for his fans and his sincere Christian faith will touch each person's heart. For Randy, it is not being a star or a performer, for none of that has affected him. It is the flood of love outpouring from his fans and the enjoyment of being able to be with them and entertain them that keeps this cowboy going. Randy may admit to being every parent's nightmare when he was a teenager but he truly has everyone's love and admiration now. He is every parent's dream child and a mentor for every parent to point their child towards. It is a must have for every RT fan. If you are not an RT fan, don't worry, you will be after you see this performance."

"For me, this is the "Standard" for other country DVD's. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I've bought some BAD (not good) country DVD's. I was real disapointed, made me think country didn't measure up to the quality of some of my rock disks. I hope other acts will use this DVD as a measure. I like the idea of doing the show specifically to record the DVD. I wish I could get a disk of all my personal favorites. The audio DVD bonus disk made this even a better deal. I'll watch this concert often!!"
Great sound and image

"You can't imagine how wonderfull is for someone living in southern Europe where country music concerts are almost non existent, to watch a DVD with the quality sound and image of this one. I hope many other country music artists can do the same: To record a high quality DVD that brings to your home a concert or concerts you don't have the oportunity to see, specially if you don't live in England, Ireland or Holland. Thanks, Randy!"
