"As I watched this DVD I was taken back to a night in 1972 (don't recall the exact date) in Burris Hall on the campus of VA Tech. My husband and I were talking as the band was setting up their insruments and doing a very informal soundcheck. It took us a moment to realize that the concert had actually begun, because Kris Kristofferson had joined the Borderlords onstage with no introduction and no fanfare. Several moments passed before the mostly college crowd settled down to listen to the music. Once they did, they (along with us) were spellbound. The music was simple and captivating at the same time. The voice was unusual, (for lack of a more complimentary discriptive) but held the audience entranced. When the set was through, Kris told the audience they were free to go if they so desired, but that he and his band were going to play a few more songs because the sound in the old building was too good to waste. Needless to say, no one left. I had already fallen in love with Kristofferson as a songwriter from the handful of hits by other artists performing his work. Hearing him sing his own songs put an entirely different perspective on his words. My husband and I were hooked from that first time, and traveled hundreds of miles to see dozens of concerts for years afterward. As I watched the last moments of "Breakthrough," I was enveloped by the same emotion as that night in 1972. I didn't want the music to end. I'm not entirely certain if I have been taken back in time from the present, or if then I was taken into the future by a bonified pilgrim. The one thing I am sure of is that every American needs to watch this documentary before the November presidential election, and listen closely to the words of a true prophet."

"Well, finally fans are rewared with this DVD, not before time. I was a little hesitant about buying it, as it said it was a documentary, however it is well worth having in your collection, as no Kristofferson fan should miss this. I was happy that The Pilgram, Sunday Morning Coming Down, They Killed Him and To Beat the Devil were on this DVD. Hey Kris if you are reading this, it is about time you paid us another visit Downunder, just don't leave Perth, Western Australia off your tour list. The last time I saw Kris was on "the Highwaymen" tour some 4 years ago. As much as I enjoyed the concert, it was Kris with his antics that kept the show rolling and made it so enjoyable. Think it s about time for a full concert DVD. In the meantime, for fans, buy this DVD without hesitation!"
A very happy Kris Kristofferson fan

"I ordered the Brakthrough DVD which had to be imported.It was well worth waiting for. The interviews with Kris make you realise what a very deep and genuine person he is. This is what makes his songs so very special and is the reason why fans like me feel we know him so well, because he writes from the heart. I saw him in concert recently and was absolutley enthralled by his performance and was really quite desperate to see some other live footage of him. This DVD has fullfilled this need. A real must for all fans."
An evening with a legend!
