    Very Good Flick

  2. Going Home w/ JJW 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    When I first saw Jerry Jeff in 1973 or '74 (my memory of my college years fails me) I have a vivid image of having fun. He might have had a sip or two, but so what? So had I. Watching this video reminded me of the Texas I used to know and love, and Jerry Jeff was a constant in my life back then. I see his live performances whenever I can, but I equally loved watching clips not found on YouTube. It's like dancing naked in that high Hill Country Rain.

  3. How Can You Not Love This Story?! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2016

    I've been an avid Jerry Jeff fan since the early 70's just prior to the beginning of the "Outlaw Country Music explosion" that occurred toward the end of that decade. I've been fortunate to have been able to see him live a couple of times. The last time was about the time he "restarted" his career and was out playing gigs with just himself and his guitar. It was an all day outdoor affair in MS and he was one of several acts that day and I felt like I was the only person in the audience paying attention. But that didn't phase him at all. I just stood up front and watched as he put on one of the best "unplugged" shows I've ever seen live or otherwise! He was definitely the best act around that day without comparison.

    I wondered then where he had been and what was going on with his life and career. Of course since then I've enjoyed a lot more of his music that has been released since and now we have the "information explosion" that enables us to know more about anything we are interested in.

    This film tells the whole story and fills in all the rest of the blanks. It was interesting to me to learn more about what it was like doing all those things I've heard him sing about over the years. I enjoyed it very much and I'm sure I'll watch over again many times.

    Thanks Jerry Jeff for all the years of great music!
