Grandpa Jones Live captures a concert Jones performed in Cincinnati in 1969. Though the album doesn't feature any of his best-known songs, it nevertheless gives a good idea of what Grandpa's shows were like during the latter-half of his career -- filled with traditional tunes, warmth and good times. In fact, the record is largely useful as an example of the friendly exchange between old-time country performers and their audiences, since musically Live is only entertaining, not revelatory.
