Product Description

Roy Orbison : Live At Austin City Limits 1982 Quality 9/10 or better a must /see/own for any fan. This video captures a 1982 appearance by rock pioneer Roy Orbison on the popular music program Austin City Limits. The future Traveling Wilbury delivers more than a dozen songs, including the classics that helped him build his legend: "Only the Lonely," "Crying," "Oh, Pretty Woman," "In Dreams," and "Running Scared."

He may not have been blessed with the photogenic looks and obvious charisma of your typical rock star, but Roy Orbison had at least two of the things that make a great artist: timeless songs, and a voice to sing 'em with. That's all on display in this hour-long 1982 performance on television's Austin City Limits. It's not Orbison's finest moment, perhaps; his band is competent but uninspired, and neither sound nor video quality is topnotch. But all is forgiven when he matches that soaring, almost operatic tenor to dramatic, heart-wrenching classics like "Only the Lonely," "Crying," "Leah," "Running Scared," and the rest (including "Pretty Woman," the rocker that may be Orbison's best-known hit).
