AllMusic Review by

Videotaped in May, 1993 at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum, this 54-minute concert is a lot of fun, as well as a beautifully played and photographed performance. Jones is in excellent form throughout, in a 15-song program that includes "Honky Tonk Angel," "He Stopped Loving Her Today," "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair," and "No Show Jones." The performance would make a good live album, but what makes this a superior video is the fluid camera work -- the angles all work, and the editing keeps the point-of-view moving and flowing constantly; every close-up is timed just about perfectly, whether it's on Jones, a band member doing a solo, or different parts of the crowd. And for good measure, Tracy Lawrence and Mark Chesnutt make guest appearances.
