With standing ovations after every masterpiece, this dynamic performance is filled with his classic hits, great ballads and powerful rockers.

Songs include: Only the Lonely, Crying, Dream Baby, In Dreams, Mean Woman Blues, Too Soon to Know, Penny Arcade, Blue Bayou, Land of 1000 Dances, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Leah, Running Scared, Sweet Caroline, It's Over, Oh, Pretty Woman.
Editor's Note
An early rock legend with an extraordinarily voice and epic, melodramatic songs on a matching grand scale, Roy Orbison blazed a trail for lonesome and lovesick musicians and fans alike. Perceived by some as lacking in the looks and charisma expected of a rock star, he more than made up for it with an operatic voice and melancholy songs to which a broad audience could relate. After his early successes, first as a rockabilly singer with Sun Records, and later finding a lasting persona as a singer of brooding, haunting Ballads with Monument Records, Orbison was eclipsed by the British invasion and his personal life was afflicted by a string of tragedies. He experienced a comeback late in life with the inclusion of "In Dreams" on David Lynch's BLUE VELVET soundtrack, and resurrected his classic sound with his final album, MYSTERY GIRL. The performance featured here was recorded in 1972 as Orbison performed his hits, accompanied by a full orchestra.
