Product Description & Reviews

It's a simple concept: find the best songwriters around and sit them down onstage. It's worked many times over the years. But there was something beyond special about this particular night in September 1996. We not only had some of the finest songwriters but some of the living legends of country music - kindred spirits who had seen and done it all. Except for something like this. Willie, Waylon, Kris, Billy Joe, Kimmie. They might as well have been in your living room; to them, the cameras were invisible. Each played a few of their favorite songs- "remember whens" and laughs. There were plenty of laughs that night, amid the sense that what we were seeing and hearing might never happen again. It all came together at the end with Willie's familiar refrain, "On the Road Again." Though the "outlaw" tag is a little tired at this late date, this 1996 recording from the Austin City Limits series (also available on DVD) represents an appealing country tradition, the "guitar pull." Such intimate, informal, round-robin performances, whether in a club or somebody's living room, find songwriters taking turns sharing material, much of it new or previously unrecorded, for their mutual enjoyment. All of the artists gathered on this Austin soundstage (which might as well be their living room) are Texas treasures, and most are national legends. Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson teamed together in the Highwaymen (who frequently performed Nelson's "We Don't Run," which they reprise here). Nelson has long been a champion of Billy Joe Shaver's songwriting, while Jennings recorded an entire album of Shaver's songs. The angel-voiced Kimmie Rhodes sings one duet with Nelson and another song she wrote with Jennings. Acoustic guitars and impromptu harmonies abound, and there's never a setlist. Highlights are as funny as Jennings's "I'd Have Been Out of Jail" (basically a barroom tale leading to the title punch line) and as chilling as Shaver's a cappella "First and Last Time." After Jennings strikes a religious chord with "I Do Believe," Rhodes takes a spiritual turn with "Espiritu Santo Bay," Shaver responds with "You Can't Beat Jesus Christ," Nelson offers "Too Sick to Pray," and Kristofferson previews the then-new "Pilgrim's Progress." The performance ends with the best-known tune, Nelson's "On the Road Again," which becomes a collective celebration of the joys of "making music with my friends." --Don McLeese
