This is the second set of the complete Roy Clark Traveling Music Show. Clark had become best known to audiences for his ongoing role as co-host of the goofy TV comedy-variety show Hee Haw, but it's been his exceptional guitar, mandolin and banjo playing that have really made him such an endearing country music star.

Clark scored a few big pop hits in the early 1970s, which appear here in condensed medley versions. A crowd-pleasing highlight is "Yesterday, When I Was Young," undoubtedly his biggest crossover hit. It is the highly charged bluegrass instrumentals, however - including his frantic version of the classic, "Orange Blossom Special," and Deliverance's "Dueling Banjos" along with his traditional, mandolin-driven version of "Somewhere My Love" from the film Dr. Zhivago - that make this concert so enjoyable.

It's too bad that most of America had to see Clark as an overweight, less-than-intelligent hillbilly when watching him on Hee Haw. In reality, he is a remarkably gifted artist and guitarist who, luckily for his earnest fans, remained more than true to his country roots.
