"It don't get better than this!"
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I discovered Jerry Jeff in the mid 70s as a college student in North Carolina at Appalachian State University. It was a great time to be a student, as Jerry Jeff along with many others - including John Hartford, John Prine, Jimmy Buffet, and others - visited ASU and performed. My musical tastes solidified during those formative years. I became a big fan and, of course, had all Jerry's records then, and I kept up with him over the intervening years. I picked up "Life from Gruene Hall" on tape when it first came out in the early 90s. It was better than anything he had done prior to that! The recording is fantastic; in fact, except for the occasional clapping and voices from the audience, it could be a studio album. What a great sound! Rodeo Wind is my all-time favorite song. The only shortcoming, if it can be called that, is I wish his song "The Dear John Letter Lounge" was included. This is on an earlier 70s album and in the vein of "Rodeo Wind." Thank the Lord for Jerry Jeff Walker and his giving us all this great music for well over 30 years!"
My Favorite Jerry Jeff Album !!!! and choosing was difficult
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Somehow this one keeps coming back to me as my favorite Jerry Jeff Walker CD. There are classic songs on Viva Terlingua, and more recently on Night After Night (2 other JJW "must-haves", in my opinion) that don't appear here, of course. But for a CD that has no song rating anything less than a MASTERPIECE, you better buy this one!! I've seen Jerry Jeff in concert in 3 different states, and he never disappoints live, either. Live at Gruene Hall always takes me back to my dusty days in Texas, circa 1991, and the lonely roads we've all travelled. This is an album rich with weather-beaten experience, wisdom, and a dash of faith. Just exactly what you need to get through this life. Thanks Jerry Jeff, you're a true original. Rob Larimer"

"Only a small handful of musical performers have the staying power demonstrated by Jerry Jeff Walker. Not bad for a kid from New York whose father questioned whether or not he "knew enough to come in out of the rain". Obviuosly, all reviews are a reflection of the eye of the beholder but, as one who has "tons" of JJW records, tapes and CDs, I believe Live at Gruene ("Green") Hall is one of the top two or three CDs of his long and illustrious recording career. Recorded in 2001, these songs capture JJ in his natural environment, a hundred year old dance hall near New Braunfels, Texas. This CD also captures a performer at the peak of his career. Four songs were written by JJ including the classic "Little Bird". From an up-tempo "Trash Women" to the moving ballad "Quiet Faith of Man" to the touching "I Feel Like Hank Williams Tonight" this CD covers the full spectrum of human emotions and, as another review has written "every song is gold". HIGHLY Recommended for those discovering JJW or 40+ year-long fans like me. ENJOY!"
