DON MCLEAN STARRY STARRY NIGHT REVIEWED
“Starry Starry Night” allows Don McLean to find new ground and audiences with this much beloved concert. While the program was shot over 15 years ago, it has becoming a public broadcasting staple. Family friendly and entertaining enough for all, it blends what all audiences need in a show. While I’m not the biggest fan of his music, McLean possesses a certain charm that makes him quite enjoyable. This is a recommended buy to all older music lovers.

The Plot Thus Far
Don McLean performs his classic folk/rock repertoire in the beautiful Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas. In a one-of-a-kind celebratory performance, he is backed by an orchestra and joined onstage by Nanci Griffith for two songs. Songs include American Pie, Vincent, It Was A Very Good Year, Crying, And I Love You So, Singing The Blues, Castles In The Air, and many more. This film has been a longstanding hit on public television stations nationwide, but has now been visually upgraded with brilliant audio remastering.
