Widespread Panic: Live From Austin TX
Singer-songwriter Amos Lee dazzles in this 2005 performance recorded live in Austin, Texas. Lee brings his signature blend of folk, jazz and soul, delivering unforgettable renditions of tunes from his chart-topping self-titled debut album.

Through all the years of Austin City Limits, there probably has never been a night quite like this. From the opening processional through the crowd, through the harp solos, cymbal crashes and rousing choruses, the many members of Polyphonic Spree, all wearing their floor-length choir robes of every color in the rainbow, lifted the show to new heights on that sultry night in August, 2004.
Doug Sahm a/k/a Sir Doug was both a Texas rock & roll legend and pioneer. True, there were others before him (Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison come to mind), but the Sir Douglas Quintet counterattacked the British invasion of the mid 1960's with their own brand of Chicano-influenced rock that they had been playing around their hometown of San Antonio. This performance, recorded October 14, 1975, came after Doug had temporarily retired the Sir Douglas name, but features original member Augie Meyer along with musical compadres Martin Steitle, John Barber, Steve McDaniels and Harry Hess.
Blending influences from his Louisiana and Texas roots to create a sound uniquely his own, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown brings his brand of blues to this 1996 live performance that first aired as part of the PBS series "Austin City Limits." Tracks include "Ain't That Dandy," "Born in Louisiana," "Bits and Pieces," "Honky-Tonk," "Dark End of the Hallway," "Up Jumped the Devil" and more.
Country chanteuse Neko Case shows off her powerful pipes and topnotch songwriting skills in this intimate concert recorded in August 2003 for the PBS staple "Austin City Limits." The first-rate show features her distinctive fusion of country, gospel and punk sounds. In addition to her original tunes, Case performs several covers, including Bob Dylan's "Buckets of Rain" and Hank Williams' "Alone and Forsaken."
Jerry almost never made it to Austin City Limits. He cancelled one appearance, and only weeks before this recording on October 17, 1983, his wife died in a freak swimming pool accident at their home. But he did make it, and what we have here is one of the most amazing performances ever to go down on the ACL stage. Throughout the day he was a perfect gentleman, showing up on time and acting very graciously to one and all, but once he hit the stage, all hell broke loose. The songs speak for themselves; they re ALL here. For many years later, Jerry Lee would carry a tape of this show to play for friends (and himself, many times). When producers tried to book him again for a return performance, the response was, Jerry Lee doesn't think he could possibly do a better show. This DVD captures all the hits and more, and includes songs that were never aired on the original TV broadcast.
Sennheiser & Paste Present the Stages on Sixth! Built To Spill’s career has been an exercise in consistency. Over the past 20 years, the Boise indie rockers have churned out seven albums filled with melodic noise and hook-laden numbers. Along the way, frontman Doug Martsch has made a series of small reinventions while simultaneously refining his craft. It’s been three years since Built To Spill’s latest album There Is No Enemy, leaving fans anticipating the group’s eighth studio album.
After the breakup of the pioneering alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, guitarist and songwriter Jay Farrar founded Son Volt, which gave him a purer vehicle for his moody and compelling songs and rich vocal style.

From the vaults of the award-winning PBS "Austin City Limits" TV Show, this show, filmed live on December 15, 1999 in 5.1 surround sound captures all of Lynyrd Skynyrd's hits and much more. The DVD also includes songs that were never aired on the original TV boradcast. During their 1970s heyday, Lynryd Skynyrd emerged as the preeminent practitioners of Southern rock, their triple-guitar attack and country-tinged tunes carving a permanent spot on the playlists of classic-rock radio. The Southern boys are captured live in this special hour-long appearance on an April 2000 episode of PBS' AUSTIN CITY LIMITS, performing classics like "Sweet Home Alabama," "Preacher Man," and, of course, that cigarette-lighter favorite, "Free Bird."
Eric Johnson: Live From Austin, TX documents a 1988 performance the respected guitarist gave for the television series Austin City Limits.
Susan Tedeschi’s debut album earned her a prestigious Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2000 (she lost to Christina Aguilera!). She sounds like part Bonnie Raitt, part Janis Joplin, part Aretha Franklin, yet she can belt out a song without losing control in a way that gives her an edge that no other singer can compare to. Add to her vocal prowess, her guitar slinger skills and you have a rare combination in a contemporary female performer. Recorded in 2003, Tedeschi’s performance is the essence of what Austin City Limits is all about, drawing from the best of blues, rock, soul and funk. But what she does best comes from deep within her heart and soul.
The Live From Austin, Texas series takes the classic performances from the award winning Austin City Limits TV show and makes them available to consumers with improved audio quality and bonus songs that were cut from the original broadcast. This latest set includes performances from some of country music’s Outlaws including Waylon Jennings, trailblazers who didn’t follow the trends and refused to play by the rules set by Music Row. This release is taken from Waylon's April 1989 visist to the Austin City Limits stages. Also available on CD.
By The time The String Cheese Incident took the ACL stage on July 24, 2001, Austin City Limits had made itself a home for improvisational rock bands. It s a natural fit- jam bands and ACL- what other music show on TV will give a band a whole hour to stretch out and be themselves? Actually, the hard part is taking an entire SCI performance of freewheeling, extending jams and editing it into only one hour. The solution is in your hands- the entire, unedited original show. Cheeseheads, rejoice!
