A quick note to those folks who were at our special Texas edition of “You’re Lookin’ At Country” to witness the rare screening of what is likely one of the best concert films ever…
H O L Y S * * T ! Thanks for being with us for a perfect evening of drinks, music, and an amazing and rare cinematic gem featuring Willie, Waylon, and so many others at their best-er-um…most free-wheelin’. Unforgettable performances, and of course the astonishingly sloshed emcee, Leon Russell. Leon: “I do drink—some of us got to.” Willie: “Or else it won’t get done.” Special thanks to all of the Texas transplants in the house, including our guest musician Ian Moore who shared songs and stories before the film, and a bunch of folks in the audience (including me, filmmaker Jennifer Maas, and even a couple of folks who were there at the concert in ’74.) If you weren’t there, I can’t even begin to convey to you the joy of this night. All I can say is: Goodnight Irene.
The best show this year happened 35 years ago.
