"If you need to reheat your beer... reheat your beer? That's totally stoner. Now I got my warm beer! It's the only way we drink it in space."
Buy this DVD so you can watch the funny stuff like that and the awesome music, it's sooooo good, if you're wondering if it's worth it or not, it IS.
In total, I believe he plays eight songs unplugged/acoustic; some solo and some with the help of Jamaican drums and other instruments that you wouldn't normally expect to show up on an Adams track. I particularly enjoyed when he got a group of 20 or so children together to help with the background vocals to one of his songs. Again, I won't spoil the fun. And that's just the kind of thing you'd expect from a guy like Ryan Adams. Along with "To Be Young" you'll hear (and see) presentations of "Answering Bell", "New York, New York", "The Rescue Blues", "Touch, Feel & Lose", "Firecracker", "You Will Always Be The Same", and the rarely heard "Hard Time Situation". This is the only Music In High Places episode I've seen, but would say it was certainly worth my time. Do not expect these eight songs and Ryan's trek into the musical world of Jamaica and its fascinating people to move you in the same way either Gold, Demolition or even Heartbreaker did. But rest assured, they will move you one way or another. This is an illustrious video that portrays unkempt sounds beautifully; somehow, someway. The bottom line: (again) if you enjoy Ryan Adams' music, check this out.
Speaking of the music, the musical scenes are superb. The sound for most of the songs is excellent and getting to see this music performed outdoors in such a beautiful setting is awesome.

The performances are all amazing. The scenery is stunning. The intoxicants are...well...abundant.Published on May 13 2004 by foytfan14
A must for any fan. Worth it for his duet with Toots Hibbert alone. The sound quality is excellent, and it has versions of many of his best known songs.Published on June 9 2003
