A FilmBuff Presentation.
Best documentary I have ever seen
At the very least, this is the greatest music documentary ever produced. More than that, it is a film documenting a way of life that, as far as I can tell, no longer exists. Nearly all the subjects of this film have died or been forgotten (they weren't exactly "known" to begin with).The music is stunning. The cinematography is excellent. I cannot say enough good things about this filim. If you are even remotely a fan of country music, it is that much better. If you love the musicians of this film, it simply does not get any better than this. If you have money to spare, please support the kind folks who put together this re-release, and buy this wonderful film. You won't regret it.
This is a must see for any Townes fan. It is a beautiful time capsule of the seventies in Austin.
Really great stuff!
It really captures the feeling of the era. The 70's were so consumed with a commercially different style but us guys on the street were more like this. Perhaps is just me but its so more authentic than 99% of what was popular at the time.
It reminds me of what Dylan's weakness was/is; no country soul like these guys. If Bob had a come through via a scene like this as oppose to that NY folk scene... Oh man...
Buy it as it is fun to have on in the background like the album. The album has different tunes so get them both!
