about

Recorded January 18, 1978. Available for the first time ever, the LIVE FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS concert series features previously unreleased performances from the award winning AUSTIN CITY LIMITS television show. Taken from the full concerts that were edited into the half hour TV show, these performances have been re-mixed and re-mastered in stereo and 5.1 surround sound to provide the highest quality concert videos available.

Clean-shaven and hatless, Merle looks almost boyish as he bounces around the stage, sporting a broad grin and waving his fiddle as he leads the band. Extraordinary musicians like Roy Nichols, finger-picking and bending notes on his telecaster like no other country guitarist, Norm Hamlet on pedal steel, Gordon Terry on second fiddle and Merle's ex Bonnie Owens singing back up, produced a sound that made The Strangers a world-class band.
