This historic recording is the only true live recording of Ernest Tubb and his Texas Troubadours. Recorded in 1965 by Texas Troubadour Jan Kurtis, the sound quality is absolutely phenomenal. This 2 CD set captures the feeling of actually sitting in the audience during one of Ernest's shows. Members of the Texas Troubadours are also featured here with performances by Cal Smith, Jack Greene and a drum solo by Jan Kurtis the only known drum solo ever recorded in a country CD. In the words of Ernest's son Justin, "If you close your eyes and listen to this album, you can recapture the feeling of actually sitting in the audience. If you never saw him, this is the next best thing. And to me, "In Person" was the only way to appreciate Ernest Tubb."
ERNEST TUBB - THE COMPLETE 1965 SHOW

"Wow! Don't miss out on this one. Absolutely terrific from beginning to end. "Blue Eyed Elaine " is worth the price of the CD by itself."
Wonderful postcard from 1965

"When Ernest Tubb and the Texas Troubadours rolled their tour bus into Tacoma, Washington in 1965, former Troubadour drummer Jan Kurtis was there to record the show. The result is a wonderful un-retouched snap shot of Tubb's live show. Tubb is thoroughly relaxed, taking requests, laughing at blown solos, dedicating songs to people in the audience. During one number a flashbulb in an audience member's camera audibly explodes and Tubb starts laughing about how he thought it was a jealous husband from their previous stop after guitarist Leon Rhodes. ("And if I was scared, think about how Leon felt!"). The Troubadours, led by Rhodes and steel guitarist Buddy Charlton are in fine form. After years of smoking Tubb's voice is sepulchral, but who cares? Remarkably fine sound quality."

"This is a fine performance by a country legend. The interactions with the audience and band are great , and the quality is very good. If you buy one ET record, get this. Only negative is that it doesn't have " Waltz across Texas""
