It almost seems silly to have to tell anyone about the Carnegie Hall disc. Widely regarded as a document of one of the best country bands performing live at its peak, it’s guaranteed to thrill. The music is wonderful, the onstage patter is the height of corny (and I mean that in a good way) stage shows, and the band cooks. Throw in the fact that this is the complete, unedited show with vintage cover artwork and some previously unpublished photos from the concert, and you’ve got a gem.
