  • Cash Johnny - American Icon (DVD)


    The amazing Johnny Cash – singer, writer,

    poet, activist, guitarist, all-around American

    force of nature – gets the high-quality, indepth

    treatment his legacy deserves in this

    detailed documentary full of fascinating

    interviews, rare footage and live performing.

    This video portrait demonstrates the

    enduring greatness of one of the giants not

    only of country, folk, and rockabilly but of

    American music as a whole.

    Interspersed with an astonishingly rich array

    of archival performances – they span Cash’s

    early days as a rockabilly rebel, the years of

    international superstardom, his groundbreaking

    prison shows, and the later period

    when he returned to folk roots – are

    interviews with such musical luminaries as

    Merle Haggard, Rodney Crowell, Porter

    Wagoner, Jack Clement, Glen Campbell,

    and others.

    Cash performs songs – many in complete

    performances – ranging from early hits like

    ’Cry, Cry, Cry,’ ’Big River,’ and ’I Walk the

    Line,’ to duets with June Carter Cash, to

    numbers like ’A Boy Named Sue,’ ’Ring of

    Fire,’ ’Sunday Morning Coming Down,’ and

    ’Bird on a Wire’ that will live on in the

    American repertoire because of Cash’s

    interpretations. A moving and satisfying

    testament to a great artist.

  • Orbison Roy - The Anthology (DVD)


    For the first time The Roy Orbison Estate has endorsed, and co-operated with, the production and release of this unique DVD anthology.  This essential DVD weaves Orbison’s classic performances into the story of his incredible career.

    Roy Orbison – The Anthology chronicles the man’s sparkling career illuminated by 14 magnificent Roy Orbison performances including Pretty Woman, Only The Lonely, Running Scared, Crying, It’s Over, Walk On, and You’ve Got It.  Famous artists such as Barry Gibb, Robert Plant, Bono, Dwight Yoakam, k.d. lang and many others introduce  and offer insights into his life, his work and his genius.

    Orbison’s remarkable canon of work is tied to the entire life span of rock ’n’ roll, not merely to one decade.  He was born in Texas in 1936, moved to Nashville in the late 50s/60s where he penned Claudette for The Everly Brothers.  Then he scored eight Top 10 hits between 1960 and 1964 including Only The Lonely, Running Scared, Dream Baby, Crying, In Dreams, It’s Over and Oh Pretty Woman .

    Roy Orbison was the only outstanding American artist to ride out the British Invasion.  He toured with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones , whilst suffering the personal tragedies of the deaths of his wife and two sons.  In the 70s he was reduced to playing at clubs until his reputation began to soar via covers of his earlier works by Linda Rondstat, Emmylou Harris and Don McLean. Finally, through his renaissance in the 80s with The Travelling Wilburys, his star shone strongly and brightly until his untimely death in 1988.

    Comments by stars of rock ’n’ roll pay testimony to Roy Orbison.

    His great gift was to turn the pain and bad luck that he experienced into ground breaking songs.”  Bono/U2

    ”In 1975 when I went into the studio to make Born To Run, I wanted to make a record with words like Bob Dylan, that sounded like Phil Spector.  But most of all, I wanted to sing like Roy Orbison.”   Bruce Springsteen.

    ”Roy Orbison: The greatest singer in the world.” Elvis Presley.
