Nine of these 14 tracks were recorded on March 25, 1965 in Laren, Holland, in fidelity that's pretty good for the standards of the era; the remaining five come from a Paris concert from just a couple days earlier. It's hard to argue with the song selection on the Holland portion, which includes his biggest and best '60s hits, as well as "What'd I Say" and the little-remembered single "Goodnight." It's interesting to hear Orbison in a live band format, but although his vocals are about as accomplished as they were in the studio, these versions are definitely the worse for lacking the orchestral production that was crucial to the appeal of songs like "Only the Lonely" and "Running Scared." The band also sounds tentative and restrained, even on numbers that don't rely upon extra instruments, like "Oh, Pretty Woman." The Paris-recorded cuts, for some reason, are significantly better: the vibe is more energetic, the sound has more presence, and one of the better songs, "Blue Bayou," was not included in his Holland set.
