AllMusic Review by

This 62-minute video produced by Gregory Hall and Charlie Dick gives a good biographical portrait of Ernest Tubb, complete with clips from television appearances and movies, as well as interviews with his friends and family members, including Justin Tubb, Hank Snow, Loretta Lynn, Skeeter Davis, Owen Bradley, Kitty Wells, Buddy Emmons, Randy Travis, Tom T. Hall, Cindy Walker and Conway Twitty. Obviously some parts of a 40-year career will be passed over in an hour, and a little too much of the second half is given over to personal anecdotes and reminiscences from the road, but this is as good an introduction to his music -- and, more important, to Ernest Tubb the man -- as anyone is ever likely to do. The song clips include "Walking The Floor Over You," "Mississippi Gal," "Answer The Phone," "I'll Get Along Somehow," "Jealous Loving Heart," "Set Up Two Glasses, Joe," "Corina Corina," and "Waltz Across Texas."
