I agree with RobbyDee. I viewed and taped the TV special, then bought the CD. The most exciting event of the entire special was Willie with Los Lonely Boys on Cisco Kid. Willie seemed to take much pride in his adopted sons and was emotional in his intros. of them. Clearly, there was something about performng with LLB that energized him, to which the audience was very receptive. I taped over the lst half of the Special on my VHS tape, and I wish I could do the same with the CD. The first half was just plain out-right dull. Not even Willie was getting into it. Bob Dylan? It doesn't become Willie at all to try to slow down to that style of music, loosely named. I looked forward to Al Green, expecting to hear the Green sound that put him on the map, such as Let's Stay Together. Instead, I felt as if I were in a day-long, gospel-shouting, countryside church service. Yes, I agree the duets with the girls gave the show a better side. The entire Jerry Lee, Keith R., and Kid Rock interlude was surreal. Does Jerry Lee have Altzeimers? And what is with this saturation of Kid Rock into country music, which is being shoved down everyone's throat? Yep--best part: Willie with Los Lonely Boys. 2nd was the classic On the Road ending, where Willie signaled for LLB to stand directly behind him and even moved aside to allow for better coverage of them. Clearly, Willie enjoyed himself most when the young vibrancy of LLB surrounded him.
I will buy the DVD, even though I have the CD, simply and only because I want to have Los Lonely Boys and Willie performing together, when they all 4 are having the time of their lives.
