Lame value, with insulting and distracting subtitles
Review by Jim on 06/25/22 review stating Lame value, with insulting and distracting subtitles
Compiled from 6 seasons of the TA sessions, the songs themselves are fine. But 50 minutes for $20. You can get the whole of a season for about that if you shop in the UK via the internet, mailed to you here in the US. And theyll come without the trite and annoying addins from PBS. Just ordered all 6 seasons, delivered, for about $160. More than 20 hours of programming vs 50 minutes for thie PBS excrescence. Sure, its region 2, which is no problem for anyone who isnt a slave to the BS DVD region coding. But I guess many PBS viewers are to helpless to figure out how to avoid the restriction.

I have also purchased the CD of this program. These performances and artists are among the best of modern folk music musicians. I cant wait until Part 2 is released. For your viewing and listening pleasure, please purchase the dvd or cd from PBS and support your local station and the terrific programs broadcast on PBS.

This program is essentially a jam session with some of the best song writers and performers. One can watch it again and again without losing interest.
