Watched the Roy Orbison & Friends A Black & White Night Live DVD
First time in years that I've watched this marvellous performance by the Big O and his music friends on stage!
What a night it must have been, both for the musicians, singers and the crowd! (Kris Kristofferson among other celebrities can be spotted in the audience)
Roy Orbison singing like a Prince from another planet (!)
hit after hit, including Only The Lonely, In Dreams, It's Over and of course Pretty Woman...
And what a band! The TCB Band, with James Burton, Ronnie Tutt, Jerry Scheff and Glen D Hardin was the backbone of the stage setup, with Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Jackson Browne, J D Souther (and a few more joining them) with Bonnie Raitt, Jennifer Warnes and K D Lang as backup singers! Wow!
The sound on this DVD is absolutely fantastic, considering this was taped in 1987 (I think it was).
If you haven't watched this yet, it's not too late!
