A country legend

"This 1986 live concert was filmed at the Capitol Music Hall in Wheeling, West Virginia, and shows a mature Tammy, in her early forties, with attractive cropped hair, reed thin in an elegant strapless gown; half-way through, she discards the skirt portion, to reveal sequined pants, and looks simply stunning. She intersperses the music with anecdotes of her life, little verbal "snapshots" that are quite moving, like the story of the first time she went to Nashville looking for work, in 1965, with 3 small children in tow.
Wynette does not have a large voice, but is a supreme country stylist. There is a subtle sadness and vulnerability to her persona, and a delicate beauty, which also add to her appeal.The music: The songs are My Man / Another Chance / Apartment No. 9 / I Don't Want to Play House / Your Good Girl's Gonna go Bad / D-I-V-O-R-C-E / Singing My Song / 'Til I Make it on My Own / Rocky Top / Alive and Well / Turn Around / What a Difference You Made in My Life / You Light Up My Life / Makin' Love / You and Me / Take Me to Your World / Womanhood / Crying in the Rain / Fairy Tales / Amazing Grace / I'll Fly Away / Will the Circle be Unbroken / I Saw the Light / Stand by Your Man.The musicians. Tammy is backed by an excellent band, and they are: Rick Murrell, bass and vocals; David Sloas, guitar and banjo; Mike Douchette, steel guitar and harmonica; Charlie Carter, rhythm guitar; Steve Samuels, keyboard; Ken Janson, drums; and Sue Richards and Paula Murrell, vocals.
This is straight concert footage, with no fancy camera angles and no endless cuts to the audience as in some live films; it is an hour long, and though the appreciation of this concert will be limited to Tammy's fans, they will love it, and it is a nice way to remember this great country legend, who took leave of this earth plane in 1998."

"I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF TAMMY WYNETTE FOREVER. I HAVE SEEN HER MANY TIMES IN CONCERT FROM SEVEN SEAS, WAY BACK WHEN, TO BILLY BOB'S TEXAS IN FT. WORTH, AND GRANNY'S DINNER PLAYHOUSE IN DALLAS, TX. I SAT ON THE FRONT SEAT AT GRANNY'S! SHE ALWAYS HAS PUT ON A GREAT CONCERT. I AM SO GLAD I BOUGHT THIS DVD. I HAVE ALL HER ALBUMS, TAPES AND CD'S AND THIS IS A GREAT COMPLIMENT TO THOSE. IT IS A GREAT BUY, AND THE PRICE WAS VERY REASONABLE. FOR ANY TRUE FAN, THIS IS A MUST HAVE ITEM!"

Tammy at her finest......a must have for her fans

"This concert although held nineteen years ago is a must have for any of her loyal fans. The video quality (almost 8 track quality) is not up to todays standards by any means but it is no doubt the best that was available for 1986. The audio also lacks brightness and suffers from the "hiss" that was so commonly accepted back then.
Other than that, this beautiful ~~Lady~~ presents herself as graceful as any Queen on this planet. The sharp soulful cry in Tammys ballads still makes you feel the pain in her songs. I followed her career right from the beginning and morned her much too early passing like everyone else. This lovely "Southern Belle" radiates pure class. She very innocently captivates the audience throught every number. This DVD is definetly a keeper for me. I would suggest that you buy it while its available."
