Item description for The Statler Brothers Farewell Concert by Statler Brothers, Doug Grau & Steve Hall...
Overview It all started on March 8, 1964: the touring, the recording, the TV shows-life as we would know it for the next 39 years. We, The Statler Brothers, traveled to Canton, Ohio, and opened a Sunday afternoon show for Johnny Cash. Other people on the show that day were Bill Anderson, Sonny James, George Hamilton IV, June Carter and The Tennessee Three. After the show John met us downstairs in one of the dressing rooms of the Canton Memorial Auditorium and asked us if we wanted to finish the tour with him. Having nothing better to do for the rest of our lives we said yes, and on a handshake we left that night in the caravan, driving an already worn out 1952 Cadillac limousine, heading for Rockford, Illinois, and the next concert. And it all ended on October 26, 2002, at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Virginia, just 85 miles from our hometown of Staunton. The four of us-Harold, Phil, Jimmy and Don-gathered for the last time in the aisle of our bus, fully dressed for the stage, and huddled, this time with our good and close friend Jimmy Dean, and had our regular pre-show prayer for the last time. The prayer was full of thankfulness and our hearts were full of gratefulness and the Civic Center was full of family and friends and fans who had made this moment possible for us. We walked off the bus for the last time, walked up the steps of the stage for the last time and faced the music for the last time. God help us and bless us again.

Reviews - What do customers think about Farewell Concert?
Great Farewell for a Great Group Nov 19, 2007
I became a Statler Brothers fan many years ago when a co-worker brought in an 8-track (yes, I said MANY years ago!) tape and I ended up listening to it over and over. Since then, I have purchased cassettes, then CDs, even re-mixed a few disks of my own, and so I was saddened to hear the group was retiring. Long story short, my respect for the quartet has only deepened since their departure and their music sounds even better today.
How wonderful that they allowed crew to film their final concert--and how wonderful a concert it was! I was not expecting to be so entertained. It isn't the most polished video tribute to come down the line, but it really fills the bill for fans who miss hearing the banter and the tight harmonies that marked this group. It contains a little of this and a little of that, but it's a good compilation of songs with almost every classic Statler Brothers hit included. The more you know the Statlers, the more you'll enjoy having this concert in your collection.
I've spent a lot on music over the years. This was money well spent.
