The Statler Brothers
The Statler Brothers smooth four-part harmony is modeled on the tradition of Gospel Quartet singing, which usually includes a lead, bass, tenor and baritone vocal. The group, together for more than four decades, only had two brothers in the group and no one was actually named Statler. The group had a crossover hit with the song "Flowers on the Wall" in 1965 which made both the Country and the Pop charts. The band were consistently in the charts in the '70s and '80s and made numerous Gospel recordings as well as the secular music that made them superstars.
Live American Outlaws
Runtime: 2 hr 38 minThis previously unreleased full-length concert was filmed live at the Nassau Coliseum on March 14, 1990. Watch the pioneering outlaw country music supergroup, featuring Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson, tear it up!
Behind Prison Walls
Runtime: 50 minThe late Man in Black headlines this 1976 televised concert, shot inside the Tennessee State Prison and featuring post-hippie chanteuse Linda Ronstadt, country picker Roy Clark, and, rather incongruously, tuxedo-ed comedian Foster Brooks, whose '70s drunk act was often funny on, say, Dean Martin's Celebrity Roast, but seems a little wrong for an audience of felons.
Ronstadt is surely appreciated for her short skirt and sweet pop-blues (her "Love Has No Pride" nears epic intensity), and Clark's showmanship works with kitsch like "Orange Blossom Special." But it's Cash's "Sunday Morning Coming Down," Folsom Prison Blues," and famously bloody "Boy Named Sue" that resonate most powerfully with his, uh, captive audience. There's a touch of condescension toward the prisoners in some stage patter and song choices: Sure, Ronstadt had a hit with "Desperado" at the time, but here it sounds like she's wagging her finger at the crowd.
