All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
The best recorded Roy Orbison live disc ever issued, taken from the soundtrack of the HBO concert from the 1980s with VIP guests like Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello. This was a sort of magical video, and the performances are splendid, along with the good feelings involved. On the other hand, the performances are extremely reverential to the established studio versions of the songs all of the hits are here, and intended to mimic them, so this isn't quite the same as a live album as it would have been done back when. The pity is that neither Monument nor MGM ever taped any complete concerts by Orbison from the 1960s, and all we have are...

    The Voice

    The Who got credit for inventing rock opera on LP, but Roy Orbison did it better in two minute bites. This CD shows him in fine form with an all star band providing backing.Beside some of his vocal showcases, the finale is a nice jam of Pretty Woman with lots of rockabilly guitar.It proves Roy was one of the few godfathers who survived intact until the end of their careers.

    Black and White Night by Orbison

    Companion CD to the PBS special from the 80's. Incridible back up band - Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, Elvis Costello, T Bone Burnett and others. Contains all the Orbison hits you really want to hear. His voice is as good as ever.

    Wish I could have seen this live...

    This concert, recorded at the Coconut Grove in LA in 1987, is a unique performance by some of the biggest names in contemporary music. Orbison could perform a fabulous concert on his own, but to add such music powerhouses as Bruce Springsteen, James Burton, Elvis Costello, Ton Waits, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, k.d. lang and Jennifer Warnes (to name a few) makes this a must-own collection. The music takes the listener through a gamut of emotions, up and down, with a culmination on the extended version of "Pretty Woman." I also recommend the companion DVD.

    I Could Listen To This All Day Long

    I just saw Roy Orbisons Biography today and listening to this music makes me understand why he is one of the original Rock and Roll Greats!
