Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 1998
Two of the greatest artists in country music history swapping stories and songs! How could anything go wrong? The truth is, meetings of legends often fail to meet expectations. Perhaps this one works because the concept is so simple: two men exchanging their signature songs and stories behind them. Johnny checks in with "Don't Take Your Guns to Town," Willie retorts with "Funny How Time Slips Away," and so on. Nothing wrong with that. --Steven Stolder

CD Reviews

Brilliant
polynesiancr | Riverside, CA USA | 04/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"That Sums It Up, Because The Whole CD Is Brilliant.Johhny & Willie's Stories, Their Voices, And Most Notably Willie's Excellent Guitar Playing On Some Of The Breakdowns; What More Could You Want. But There Is One Semi-Complaint is That "Ring Of Fire" Which Was On The Show Is Not On This CD, But Still The CD Is Quality In Every Aspect."
Masters At Play

"This album is essentially a best-of for both Johnny and Willie. Musically, it's slightly less than stunning, but it does reveal the fact that Willie could have been one hell of a jazz guitarist. The vocals are what you'd expect.No, the real prize here is hearing the songs stripped down, without production...we get to hear Cash classics like "Don't Take Your Guns To Town" without the intrusion of a producer or a "perfect take." Nelson also benefits with renditions of songs like "Crazy" and "Night Life."And then there's the banter...two old friends bs'ing in front of a studio audience. Wonderful stuff...it'll leave you with a glow in your heart. (We even hear June Carter offstage.) Music fans should look into this. Really. It does get slow once in awhile, but that's my fault, not theirs. Enjoy."
