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.

Anyone who loves Nanci Griffith will thoroughly enjoy this DVD. She does an excellent job of blending her older and newer songs, enabling her to completely keep you interested and excited. The sound quality on the CD is wonderful - and if you turn it up really loud, you can pretend that you are at the concert.
On a side note - I actually was at the concert where they recorded this DVD. It was very interesting to see the process - including her having to completely re-perform one of the songs, because someone felt her lipstick had worn off a bit too much. I had a really fabulous time at the concert - and I really believe that you can tell this through the energy of the DVD.
This DVD is absolutely fantastic - and a must have for any Nanci Griffith fan!

I've always enjoyed listening to Nanci Griffith and this DVD was a wonderful gift. Performance is a big part of music. It's wonderful what the engineers do in the recording studio, but I think the true test of a song and a singer is what happens when they stand alone on the stage in front of an audience. A live DVD is not the same thing as being there, but it's much closer than a live album. Bravo.

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?

I found this concert DVD to be exceptional. No glitz or tricks, just a display of exceptional talent. The images are compelling and the sounds are fantastic. Of course a big part of the appeal is Nanci Griffith herself. She transmits such warmth and honesty through her performance on this DVD. The filming reminds me of an Austin City Limits program, showcasing the music. And as she points out in the concert, she doesn't change clothes even once during the performance.
