Product Description

Amazon.ca

Journeyman country outlaw Waylon Jennings might have been nearing the end of his road on this performance, but he had a full tank of gas when he hit the Ryman stage for two nights in January 2000. Although too ill to stand, Jennings is in fine--even exceptional--voice, as he and his Waymore Blues Band, augmented with horns for the first time, cruise through a tight and tough two-hour gig. This 2007 expanded edition of Jennings's final album not only adds eight tracks and a second audio disc, but also throws in a professionally shot DVD remixed in crystal-clear 5.1 surround sound. Guests Travis Tritt, Montgomery Gentry, and John Anderson add cameos, along with Waylon's wife Jessi Colter, who appears on four tracks. But this is Jennings's show, and although the country legend's health was on a downslide from which he would never recover, he sounds inspired and vital throughout this set of hits (and some obscurities). Extra tracks such as Tony Joe White's "Trouble Man" and the Band's "The Weight" are terrific additions, and the disc has now been reconfigured to follow the original sequence. Fans might lament the omission of signature Waylon fare such as "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line" and "Lonesome, On'ry and Mean" and the inclusion of fluffier pop like "Never Been to Spain," but this remains a moving and exciting live recording. The DVD is an indispensable bonus. It shows Jennings's obvious delight playing with this exceptional 11-piece outfit and their enthusiasm working with a country legend. The package is a fitting final document to one of roots music's most edgy trailblazers and essential listening/viewing for any country fan. --Hal Horowitz

WAYLON JENNINGS & THE WAYMORE BLUES BAND
"Never Say Die: The Final Concert Film"

DVD + 2-CD (Columbia/Legacy)

Arrives in stores July 24, 2007

OVERVIEW:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

Waylon Jennings, his health failing, played his last major concert at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium in January of 2000.

Backed by the all-star Waymore Blues Band, whom he called "the band I always wanted", his afflictions evaporated on the Ryman stage.

Joined by wife Jessi Colter and guests John Anderson, Travis Tritt and Montgomery Gentry, he delivered a moving, exhilarating performance revisiting some of his greatest songs. While the concert was filmed and recorded, only a truncated single CD appeared at the time.

Now, for the first time, the complete show is available on 2 CDs and DVD!!

It's Waylon's triumphant last hurrah, done -as always- on his terms.

Many legendary country performers, their greatest years behind them, yearn for that one glorious 'Last Hurrah' on stage and/or records that sums everything up - allowing them to go out on top. Cash was among the few to have that good fortune...Waylon was another. Summoning the inner grit and tenacity that sustained him through good and bad times and made him a true innovator, surrounded by loyal, loving musicians and adoring fans, he created this magnificent epilogue to what will remain one of American music's most remarkable careers.

To borrow from what Chet Flippo once wrote:

Once upon a time in country music, there were giants walking the land....

Waylon Jennings WAS the tallest of them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waylon lives on July 24 2007
By DanD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Waylon Jennings was one of the true outlaws of country music, one of the artists who paved the way for everyone who came after him. Along with contemporaries Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, David Allan Coe, and others, he established a genre of music (outlaw country) that has spread from the rural countryside to the inner city. It is honest music, with lyrics that pierce to the soul and melodies that tug at the ear.

This expanded edition of the NEVER SAY DIE album (the concert in its entirety) is but another landmark in outlaw country. It is not quite on par with Waylon's other double-live release, but it is still better than most music Nashville churns out today. Waylon and the Waymore Blues Band (basically, his traditional Waylors band amplified by fiddle and horns) rock and roll and sing and swing, delivering true, genuine country/rock. Despite his illness, which required him to remain seated during the concert (Waylon cracks, "I can still kick a**, you just have to bring 'em on up here!"), this remains a lively concert; your attention won't wane for one moment, whether you're singing along to the classics, or enjoying the "new" tunes. He is joined by new-age outlaws John Anderson, Travis Tritt, and Montgomery Gentry (as well as his wife and fellow outlaw Jessi Colter, who gets her own mini-concert), but don't think for a minute this show belongs to anyone other than the Waymore Blues Band. All band members get ample time; Waylon seems comfortable sitting back and just being a member of the band. The thing is, you, the audience, also feels like a part of the band; Waylon's banter between singing makes you feel right at home. NEVER SAY DIE: THE COMPLETE FINAL CONCERT is a great, great Waylon Jennings record, and stands as a reminder to a new generation: There was once a man named Waylon Jennings, and he kicked a**.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Final Bow for THE MAN. July 24 2007
By bestseller92 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
To the end, Waylon had what all too few of today's "country" stars don't -- soul, integrity, commitment, vision and TALENT. All of those qualities and more (including courage and grit) are on display in "Never Say Die: The Final Concert Film". Superb. VERY highly recommended!
