Movie Reviews

A Detailed History of Roy Orbison
N. Stock | Australia | 05/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great DVD.It shows Roy live in concert,doing promo videos for single releases,singing on TV in the early years.It has interviews with people like the Beegees,Jeff Lynne(of ELO fame),K D Lang(who features in a video duet with Roy) and others praising Roy.It even has a song from the famous "black and white night"with a beaming Bruce Springsteen looking on. It also has very detailed liner notes telling Roys history from the 1950's onwards.Well worth the money for fans of Roy Orbison."
Orbison at his best....

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a Roy Orbison fan...this is must see...the music alone, especially the stirring duet rendition of "Crying" with k d lang, is worth the price of admission...but you get so much more...interviews with some of music's top performers, concert footage from today and yesterday, information about the man and his music that you may never have known..."Anthology" should be in everyone's DVD player or VCR...if you never see it, it will be your loss....."
A Great Legend Lives Again

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The "Anthology by Roy Orbison" is a "must-have" for those who cherish the beauty this great talent gave to the art of ballad. The video features interviews of those who knew him which adds dimension to this enigmatic giant of a past era. Several songs were played that I have never heard in over 30 years of enjoying Mr. Orbison's music. The video truly presents the intensity, talent, beauty, and charismatic intensity of Roy Orbison's singing and brilliance as a song writer. I rated the video four star instead of five only because of the below average quality of some of the video/audio segments. Other than some quality problems which were the result of the recording at the time the videos were made, this video is a classic. Those who love Roy Orbison will want this video."
Performances spoiled by inane commentators
Elston Gunn | Australia | 08/21/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is very disappointing. Whoever edited this DVD is not a music lover. Roy's performances are interrupted and spoiled by the gushing comments of the Bee Gees, Robert Plant, k d lang, etc. It's not a DVD that one can play often for enjoyment because one does not want to hear the comments of the other performers more than once. The Roy Orbison's Black & White concert DVD is vastly superior."
