The Ernest Tubb Show on DVDs by Bear Family Records
Taking to the air in 1965, The Ernest Tubb Show was a weekly television showcase for one of the true giants of country music. Shot in Nashville on video and using minimal sets, the emphasis was on the music, rather than flashy production. In addition to featuring Ernest Tubb, still at the top of his form, the first year was a document of the 'Great Band' years of the Texas Trouba- dours – with the stellar line-up of Buddy Charleton, Jack Drake, Jack Greene, Leon Rhodes and Cal Smith.
The regular backing cast ot 'The Ernest Tubb Shows' included both veteran performers and fresh faces including Willie Nelson (near the start of his career), Wade Ray, the John- son Sisters, Bun Wilson, Lois Johnson and others on this DVDs. This DVD-series is the first release taken from the original video masters and each volume features a full-colour booklet with a history of the show’s production and biographies of all cast members. It’s a chance to recapture the days when the Texas Troubadour was a weekly visitor to television sets across America!
