Kristin Scott Thomas,
The show was filmed in 1987 at the Coconut Grove club in Los Angeles. The original TV broadcast was in 1988, at 55 minutes, in 4:3 format. The VHS release corresponded. The DVD issued in 1999 was slightly reedited, 1h05m, 16:9 format. TV showings after 2000 corresponded. In 2017 Roy's three sons issued a 30th anniversary disc. It was rearranged. The show was 1h33m, including a private session after the audience had left. See more »
Black & White Night - Excellent show with Many great accompanists
I couldn't help but comment on "nonconformist's" comments. For a concert video the editing was not that bad. But his slams on "has-beens" is awful. Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raite, KD Lang, Jennifer Warnes, JD Souther are NOT has-beens. They are treasures who are still making great music. His crack about Springsteen's overbite was just plain mean. His comment about the "has-beens almost faking orgasms" is just plain stupid. These folks are obviously enjoying jamming with a legend, Roy Orbison. If you don't enjoy the performance you should keep quiet and not show your ignorance and mean spirit.
As for Brian Greenhalgh's complaint about the sound being out of sync...was this a legitimate purchase or more likely an illegal copy? If so you have no reason to complain. If legitimate you can exchange it.
