Roy Orbison - A Black and White Night

I have watched this concert at least 15 times and it never gets old. Anybody that hasnt heard Roy Orbison before should definatly watch this concert it is a true classic with amazing power and a great backing band too that includes Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello and many others....You will find out why Bono and the boys have so much respect for Roy truely one of the best ever.

Id give this show a definite 10 out of 10 for quality what do the rest of you think if you have seen it?

I haven't seen this for years but I definitely give it 10 out of 10. Roy is one of the greats, a true original.

I saw Orbison live right around that time. It was a fantastic show, every bit as good as A Black & White Night, even without the other stars.

I like the versions of a lot of the songs from A Black & White Night than the original versions by Roy - especially Pretty Woman.
