Best known as one of the co-hosts of the country music comedy television show Hee Haw (which ran for a remarkable 20 years on network and syndicated TV), Roy Clark is actually one of the best guitar pickers in the history of popular country music. He was one of the few true country acts to have a pop crossover hit -"Yesterday When I Young" - while having nearly a dozen hits exclusively on the country charts since the late 1960s.

The early show opens with a monologue and a joke from one of his band members that we could have all done without, but Clark quickly redeems himself with the comical "I Wish I Had A Job To Shove," a take off on the Johnny Paycheck song from 1973. Clark takes a break while his three female back-up singers, known collectively as Fancy, take over. He returns on banjo with a smoking version of the Flatt and Scruggs bluegrass classic "Foggy Mountain Breakdown."

After a brief intermission, the second part of the show opens with "Tennessee Saturday Night." The rest of this show consists of country music covers, including a great version of "Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes." Clark spends a lot of time doing idle chatter from the stage, which is amusing, but most of us would probably prefer more of his outstanding guitar and banjo playing. Fortunately for fans, there's enough of that, too.
