5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Night of Music and Friends Nov. 20 2003
OK, I'm pretty biased here. I have followed Nancy's career since she was a regular on National Public Radio's "Prairie Home Companion" radio show. The lead guitarist on this DVD and the "Clock Without Hands" CD is a very close friend of mine: Chaz Williams. And I was in attendance that evening with several friends and get to see myself in quite a bit of the crowd footage. OK, all that aside, this was a really fun show to be present at. Nancy is a wonderful entertainer and chose some excellent special guests (including one of my all-time favorite ladies: EmmyLou Harris).
Her lyrics and manner are as pure and sweet as her voice. You can get a real sense of her presence, humor and playfulness on this DVD. The playing of her supporting band members is truly fantastic. Another great benefit is that the proceeds of that show went towards the restoration of the beautiful Tennessee Theater on Gay street in downtown Knoxville, TN--a VERY worthy and much-needed endeavor. The crowd that night left feeling a special connection with the performers and the venue and I think you will sense that as you watch the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those moments you carry forever Feb. 18 2003
Nanci happens to travel to our area on a somewhat regular basis. Maybe it is that I have seen her more often than some members of my own family. Maybe it is that Ireland-Texas-Tennessee Connection we share. Maybe it is the fact that I can sing along with every song... or listen with pure joy. But the night we sat in the Tennessee Theater and listened to Nanci and her friends (second time in a month... just this time with cameras) perform the entire evening ... no opening band, no comedian ... just song and story and sharing for hours ... it is one of those moments that you want to drain every drop of. Yeah, the stories and the jokes were the same as the performance a couple of weeks earlier, but this time we were insiders.
Those of you who will only get the digital version of the evening are being cheated a little. But only a little. Nanci and James Hooker's vocal duet on "Gulf Coast Highway" is worth the price of admission. Unless you have seen Nanci live, you haven't heard this version, and for my money there is none better. How precious that there were cameras there to capture it.
Should Julie Gold's "Goodnight New York" jump to #1 on Billboard for some pop diva, I will be the one popping in Nanci's version and feeling all smug that I knew it when...

I enjoyed this concert a lot, mainly because it showed Nanci Griffith at her best. Some time ago I saw a concert of her performing in Ireland, and I was put off by that concert a lot. She was jumping around stage and trying to be something she's not and appeared very commercial, and the songs she sang were woeful (and I have to say her performance wasn't much better). I thought at the time, if this is going to be the Nanci of the future then I'll give up on her. This concert, thankfully, is nothing like the Irish one and shows her at her best, performing in a more gracious, traditional way. It is how I for one expect her to be. The filming, sound recording, lighting and general production of this concert was excellent. Nanci's performance was first rate. My only criticism is that the song selection could have been much better (many of the songs were disappointing), but that's my own personal beef and these songs may appeal more to others. Although I enjoyed this concert a lot, it does not rank as her best work on film - that goes to the "Other Voices, Other Rooms" concert, which has been captured on VHS but for some unfathomable reason has not been released on DVD. Why, does anyone know?

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical and a special gift to her fans. Oct. 13 2002
I watched this DVD twice after receiving it and can't tell you how much of a thrill it was to see Nanci perform some of her material live.Nanci is one of those singer-songwriters who I have always admired and loved.Her ability to make me stop and listen to her sing, while at the same time enjoy her storytelling, make her a unique performer.
I knew I would probably enjoy this live performance, but it was only after viewing it that I was awed by her voice and her wonderful stage presence.
This is like a wonderful gift Nanci shares with those of us who have never seen her perform live.She shines, and then some.Her "Blue Moon Orchestra", and her special guests, including"Emmylou Harris" also share a strong respect, love, and
admiration for her musical abilities and her strong sense of humanity.
Nanci, the performer, is as self-effacing as I had imagined she would be.The concert takes place in a wonderfully intimate setting that really showcases her skills and looks impeccable.
If you are a Nanci Griffith fan, she will delight,inspire, and please you with her performance.Thank you Nanci for this.It was worth the wait to have such a cherished keepsake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Marquee - Nanci at her best. Sept. 12 2002
I was fortunate enough to catch this concert live at the Tennessee Theater in Knoxville, TN. As you will hear and see, it was a magical night and Ms. Griffith was at her very best. I've followed Nanci's career for many years, and attended numerous concerts -- this ranks among the best ever. I especially appreciate the simple arrangements which magnificantly showcase one of the most beautiful voices in contemporary music. Favorite tracks include the Towne's Van Zandt cover "White Freight Liner Blues" and Nanci's signature "Gulf Coast Highway" with James Hooker on vocals. The night was made complete by the presence of Emmylou Harris. This is a must have DVD/CD for anyone who appreciates quality acoustic music. Nanci's loyal fans will love it, and it's sure to attract many new listeners. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than The CD
This is a great DVD of a great live performance. It starts out a little subdued, but then Nanci hits her stride, when she starts playing some of her older material. Read more
