Movie Reviews

A must-have for bluegrass lovers
Zach Miller | Santa Barbara, CA | 09/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This ranks with the all-time best concert movies--"Woodstock," "The Last Waltz," and "Stop Making Sense." The fact that it's a bluegrass film is a plus for fans of the genre.

Almost any chapter of the dvd is worth the entire price, but the Earl Scruggs banjo finale is breathtaking.

A beautiful piece of work, lovingly crafted and a one-of-a-kind experience."
All Hail - The King Of Bluegrass DVDs

"I'm a huge bluegrass DVDs and VHS collector, but I never saw anything like this in my whole collection. This is a serious must-have. If you ever been to a festival in the 70s (wich I haven't) you'll enjoy this DVD much more, it will bring back uncountable memories. It opens with a great footage of the Lilly Brothers & Don Stover with Tex Logan (wich is worth the price alone!) and it keeps going with Mac Wiseman, Earl Scruggs, the Bluegrass Alliance, JD Crowe, Blackwell & Collins and many many many more. It has a great quality, both video and audio, plus there's a great commentary by Fred Bartenstein (who actually was one of the organisers of the festival, when he sold Muleskinner News...). What are you waiting for? Buy it for they might be over soon :)"

"The DVD has many of the real pioneers of Bluegrass music performing in their prime, it is a treat to watch, especially for a johnny-come-lately bluegrass fan as I am. There is a sense of something wholesome going on there, not like other musical festivals like Woodstock, where there is a sense of something perverse going on. I love it when rockers come to bluegrass, produce one of something worth listening to and then vanish, because they don't understand the culture of the men who make their living palying music they love. This CD does an excellent job of telling a story and showcasing some truly legendary acts."
Great reprise of 70's Bluegrass festival sensation
Duane C. | Austin, TX | 07/17/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Having attended a few festivals back in the 70's, I found this DVD to be a wonderful recreation of some of the ones I went to. Some of the budding "newgrass" groups (Bluegrass Alliance, for one) are on here, along with Earl Scruggs playing with his sons, after he left Lester Flatt who went on to put together the Nashville Grass. Chubby Wise, one of the happiest fiddle players is on here playing the Orange Blossom Special with Mac Wiseman - I'll never forget him when he was with the Nashville Grass at the Gettysburg festival in '73. When the band bus arrived, all the others got off with their instruments in their cases. Not Chubby - he had the fiddle under his chin and played and danced from the bus to the stage. There is a lot of good music on here, including the Country Gentlemen doing "Matterhorn" and "Fox on the Run." While I really enjoy modern bluegrass DVD's, this one does a good job of documenting the smaller, more family-like atmosphere of the early festivals. Recommended."
