Reviews - What do customers think about Prairie Home Companion 20th Anniversary Collection?
Just WONDERFUL! Sep 5, 2008
This my first introduction to Garrison Keillor and I've since never missed an piece of work by him. How I laughed to "O Captain, My Captain" and "Tomato Butt"!! And of course, the memorable "Casey at Bat". It's wonderful to listen to over and over. You would not go wrong purchasing this item, nor buying any of his works! Highest Recommendations!
Removed material: Beware Jan 31, 2007
Color me displeased. I bought this for Julia, Lover's Waltz, Pioneer Waltz and some other items from my cassette and lo and behold they have been removed from this package. I still give it 5 stars overall because it is PHC but this is a warning for others. Ok, I am editing this as I just noticed a change... They added a table of contents... FROM THE TAPE. Removing content from one edition to another and then advertising the earlier more complete edition makes this just plain wrong.
Pioneer Waltz by Peter Ostroushko Dec 28, 2006
I had this set on cassette long ago and recently replaced it with a set on CD from this site.com. I enjoy A Prairie Home Companion and enjoyed listening to the rest of the humor and music in this set, but the reason I bought a second set is for a Peter Ostroushko composition called "Pioneer Waltz" which is so beautiful it literally moves me to tears.
The same composition appears on another Peter Ostroushko CD, but this version is significant superior. Incredible music, easily worth the price of this set and then some. I've never heard anything like it. It is a profound work of art.
Highly Entertaining Dec 19, 2006
Garrison keeler is at his best when he is telling these stories which he is best known for. Radio shows are way before my time and this was sort of an "acquired taste" for me. Now I can't get enough of him. I can listen to this over and over. It is very comforting and, as others have said, excellent on the road!
I love Garrison, but wanted more Apr 9, 2003
I love Prarie Home and Garrison, and this is a great collection. However, it is all music and Tales from Lake Wobegon - none of the other sketches or comedy routines I was hoping for. So, no complaints about what's on the four CDs - just complaints about what's not! I will try one of the other anniversary collections!
