Not too many guys in their late Seventies look as good as Willie so it was a pleasure to see him on stage. He sounds great, too.
His jazzy duet with Ricky Lee Jones was superb. Most others of Willie's "friends" are a who's-who of country, rock, and other categories but all too often his songs with them were dull.
It was nice to see fellow septuagenarian Bob Dylan, but I had to fast-forward through the forgettable duet he and Willie performed together.
Same for Willie's work with Kid Rock, Carole King, Lucinda Williams, and the Rev. Al Greene. (Merle Haggard and Toby Keith sounded pretty good on their own, and Los Lonely Boys rocked with Willie serving as sideman.)
Ben Harper introduced someone he said had coined the term "reggae," but garbled the singer's name. The guy sang great, but who the heck was he?
James Caan announces a few of the early acts in this concert film, giving them the silly tag of "outlaw," then he inexplicably disappears. A little sloppy and haphazard...
Not at all a bad track to have on in the background while doing chores or other work around the house. But this is not one you want to sit down with and actually watch.
