Overview

Though it's basically a straight transfer of the 1987 Showtime concert special, the sound, look, and performances on Black & White Night elevate it beyond the average concert video. Remastered in digital surround sound and shot -- appropriately -- in moody black and white at L.A.'s Coconut Grove, the concert features haunting performances of "Only the Lonely," "Running Scared," and "Blue Bayou" from Orbison, who is supported by stars such as k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, J.D. Souther, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, and Jennifer Warnes. Backed by Elvis' touring band from the late '60s and '70s, this all-star lineup shines on Orbison classics ranging from rockers like "Ooby Dooby," "Oh, Pretty Woman," and "Dream Baby (How Long Must I Dream)" to yearning ballads like "In Dreams," "Crying," and "It's Over." Though some DVD extras like a biography or discography would have been nice, Roy Orbison: Black & White Night will delight Orbison fans with its well-chosen set list, refined production values, and strong performances.
