The 1950s, '60s and '70s were prime decades for popular country music; many songs found popularity far beyond the bounds of the genre. My Music's Legends Of Country brings back country's greatest hits from its greatest stars. From Patti Page's 'Tennessee Waltz' to The Bellamy Brothers' 'Let Your Love Flow', these performances by the original artists prove that when it comes to these classics, we're all a little bit country. Features Glen Campbell, Hank Locklin, The Browns, Bill Anderson, Ferlin Husky, Crystal Gayle, B.J. Thomas and more.

Legends of Country: Classic Hits of 50's 60's and 70's. When you read the title and look at the YOUNG performers on the cover. I was expecting to see classic footage of Glen Campbell and others from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Not the 2005 performances. The cover should show what they look like now and saying playing their classic hit. There is some classic footage from passed performers like Johnny Cash etc.
This is another addition to the excellent My Music concert series seen on PBS. Unfortunately due to the fact that many of real country music's pioneers are no longer with this, many of the performers on the show may not be recognizable to the devotees of the current Nashville pop music masquerading as country music, but it is a stellar lineup of some of country music's legends. One performances (Patti Page) is taken from a previous concert, but all the rest of these performances were original to this concert. There were some archival performances (Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, etc) shown during the PBS broadcast of this show, but they are not on this DVD. For all that, however, it is an excellent show and I would highly recommend it.
Performances: Tennessee Waltz - Patti Page Southern Nights, Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman, and Galveston - Glen Campbell Send Me the Pillow That You Dream On and Please Help Me I'm Falling - Hank Locklin...
We saw this special on PBS and I was so happy to see that we didn't miss out purchasing the DVD! (I thought you could only get it via donation!) This special was something we stumbled upon, but enjoyed immensely. From one performer to the next, we were saying "Oh my goodness, I remember him/her/them!!" :) It's a nostalgic trip with some of the greatest country performers and retrospectives of the ones who have passed on. It's a great family special. The whole reason I wanted the DVD was to share it with my Mom and Father-in-law! It will be enjoyed by the whole family, for sure!
