  • 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.
