Taped on March 25, 2007, at the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago during the final performance of their sold out tour that played to rave reviews, Nelson, Haggard and Price (backed by Grammy Award winning 'Kings of Texas Swing' Asleep at the Wheel, led by Ray Benson, and Ray Price backed by his Cherokee Cowboys) deliver rousing performances of their greatest hits in the richest voices this side of the Rio Grande.
'Last of the Breed' features the greatest hits of these Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, including 'Okie From Muskogee,' 'Pancho and Lefty,' 'For the Good Times,' 'Night Life,' 'Crazy,' 'Mama Tried,' 'Always on My Mind,' 'On the Road Again' and many others.
