GUEST,bernieandred PBS - Ken Burns Country Music (88* d) RE: PBS - Ken Burns Country Music 17 Sep 19


I've watched 2 episodes. Not very impressed. Bob Wills was one of the featured performers in tonights episode, but there was no video of him performing! There is lots available on line. This seems to apply to almost all of the featured performers. maybe it's a rights issue.They also made a big deal about how popular The Maddox Bros & Rose were, & yet none of their middle period music was played & no visuals of their "nudie" type outfits,which were a big part of their groundbreaking appeal.In fact there was really no mention as to why they were such a big act!
Ken Burns does a great job with these PBS multi part series & I don't like to be negative, but this is not one of his best..
