OPRY VIDEO CLASSICS REVIEWED
“Opry Video Classics” offers up 8 discs that serve as music video albums. Well, it’s more recorded live performances. If you can handle 10 hours of these performances, then this will be for you. If you can’t, then you never were going to buy this release. Honestly, I grew up with this music and hated the Pop/Soft crap that started when Country tried to go Adult Contemporary. If I wanted to ignore soft music, I’ll ignore the Quiet Storm channels. When I listen to Country, this is what I expect.
I want to hear from women that can found at the Waffle House. I want to hear men that have either been to jail, are in jail or are working on their next trip back to the slammer. There’s a certain aesthetic to the cleaned up Southern junk. It’s somewhere between the 1950s and right before Bob Dylan came to Nashville. Often imitated, but never duplicated…this set scratches that itch that so many fans have. Check out the Johnny Paycheck clip below, as the performance is included on the set. The video quality is better on the disc, but it’s not like anyone is really restoring these releases.
