This is an excellent movie for anyone interested in grassroots American music. It's not just a gloss but a real story about a Anderson Fair, a seminal venue in Houston, TX where songwriters are able to put themselves in front of a quality audience and, if they're good enough, let their songs weave the magic. It contains vintage footage and contemporary interviews with the likes of Guy Clark, Lyle Lovett, Nancy Griffith, and a host of names you may or may not recognize. All of them have their special place in this weird, unlikely success story. After 41 years, Anderson Fair is still going strong presenting songwriters where lyrics still count and you'd better be able to present them stripped down and real.
