| ROY ORBISON: THE LEGEND LIVES ON - IMM940130
The late, great Roy Orbison, in a series of riveting live performances drawn from many points in his long and fascinating career.
Some are clips from his heyday as a weird, haunted rock and roller in the early 1960s. Some are from his country phase, when Roy was bridging the gap between hillbilly, rockabilly and countrypolitan. And in some, Roy has help from sidemen like Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello
The favourites are all here: from the primitive rocker ‘Ooby Dooby’ to the breakout hit ‘Only The Lonely’; from the roots-music classic ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’ to Roy’s Traveling Wilburys period and ‘You’ve Got It’ – and many, many more, all sung live before excited audiences.
Through it all, Roy’s unmistakably haunted, high singing reminds us of the consistency he brought to rock and roll, country, and pop in four decades. A moving portrait of an indelible talent.
