The Marty Stuart Show
The Best Of Season 1 DVD
Rating: 4 Stars
Marty Stuarts weekly RFD-TV show takes in all of the flavors of country music the man favors, which is to say, all of them. Stuarts take is energetic and straightforward, with an accent on the performances themselves in homage to the form of the enduring 60s-born, single-set series from Porter Wagoner and Flatt & Scruggs. Whether or not you regularly catch the show, this 2-disc compilation of uncut performances demands repeated play. Guests range from the inspirational Earl Scruggs to his grandson Chris (playing a hot Cherokee Boogie with Chuck Mead and Kenny Vaughan), to Duane Eddy and Wanda Jackson, Charlie Daniels and Del McCoury, Mel Tillis and Charlie Pride. Since the regular cast includes the incomparable Connie Smith, (here singing her Run Away Little Tears and Where Is My Castle?), the charming old timey singer-banjoist Leroy Troy, and Martys amazing and versatile band the Fabulous Superlatives, the set would be loaded with highlights even if there were no guests. Theres also a collection of bonus on-set photos by long-time Opry photographer Les Leverett.
