Full Show Friday: Willie Nelson Live In Amsterdam

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...

This month we have a theme! As readers of RTBE know, Spring is special for us as Jazzfest is just around the proverbial corner.  So for all of the Full Show Friday's in April we will be spotlighting artists who are playing at this years festival.
To be honest we are completely underwhelmed by this years lineup and I doubt we stick around for any of the headliners except for the closing Sunday, so listening to these shows will do us all better then the mile long cab line. 

This week we are getting down with the one the only ...Willie Nelson!

Willie Nelson, an American icon...and weed smoker.  God Bless him, people talk about Keith Richards biography Life in such high rarefied tones...give me Willie's Road mussings any day over the those junkie stories, and I love Keef.   

Out of all the artists we showcase this month, Willie is probably the one we would stick around for the most., but probably won't. We have seen him before and loved it, here's video proof. Willie will be closing this years Gentilly Stage on the 2nd Friday of the fest.

Anyway, this is a pristine looking if lackadaisical playing show, the band seems to be semi going through the motions, perhaps Amsterdam sunk its teeth into them a bit too friskily.  As always Mickey Raphael is the real highlight during Willie's sets, well and Willie's magical voice, let's get listening...
