  1. I will disagree with everyone else on the planet on this one and I do like Roy Orbison.

    As good as the band was there should have been more sparks in this DVD rather than almost none. The sparks that were there seemed to me almost scripted.

    I got the distinct impression that the set was completely re-recorded. If that was the case all blemishes can be removed. Now, of course, with that line up one would hardly think that there would be a mistake. So we might not know what happened during the filming, afterwards or, in this case, how much happened afterwards.

    Yes, the sound was great but all films go in for a mix and one would hope that the director and music producer would take the time needed to make this one sound good.

    So yes it was/is a historic film but it does, at least for me, raise a few questions.

  2. It wasn’t clear about which DVD to order and I made the mistake of ordering the HD and I can’t play it on my machine. Watch the one you order.

  4. Couldn’t watch it because it is high def and my player is analogue. When I began reading about the technology, I realized Amazon was probably dumping this product because Blu Ray is supplanting high def. I’ll keep it as a remainder to be certain what I’m buying in future and beware.

  5. Being 22, and living in age where rap music and hip-hop seem to dominate the air waves, I am enthralled by Roy Orbison. My memories of Orbison go back to when I was 6 or 7 I can remember my dad sitting in his favorite recliner, rocking me to sleep listening to Elvis and Orbison. They have become 2 of my favorite artists of all time. Sure I still enjoy music today, but one would be hard pressed to find a talen like Orbison. My fiancee bought me the DVD for Christmas and I turn it on every night before I go to bed and listen to “only the Lonely” and “Crying” Even my fiancee, who is one of the many at her age, who listen to rap adn alternative music mostly commented to me that she really liked it. Finally to make it complete, is the fact that the DVD has DTS enabled sound. It sounds great in just stereo, but when you turn it to DTS sound on a surround sound system. It is just amazing. A must have for any of Rock and Roll’s fans.
