6. It's Over
8. That Lovin' You Feelin' Again
9. You Got It
11. Walk on

13. Oh, Pretty Woman
What I like about this, they have the program on dvd, and cd both together, so that you can listen to it, if you don't feel like watching it, or you can watch it if you don't feel like listening to it. I haven't really see the specials features, but in bewtween songs (or most of them) Roy Orbison talks, a gives you a little history about his carrier, and the songs that he pefromances. I might have swpet Walk on for Candy Man. You Got iIt was recored, and played on his final cd "Mystery Girl" that was released in 1989, after his death. It was too bad that he died when he did, but he had a great carrier, and there are plenty of songs, and dvds that his fans can rememeber him by.
Amazing mellow vocalist

"The more you listen, the more you appreciate the music of Roy Orbison. Most of the songs are quite emotional but lively. Background instrumental music is also amazing. Video is not quite perfect, but what matters most to me is the audio.Highly recommended. To see is to believe, find out for yourself."

"Since I have most of Roy's DVD I was influenced by some reviewers'
remarks about the special features. The first part of this CD are
excerpts from other well known DVD so there's nothing new. The only
"novelty" is Roy's "Walk On" from 1968. The interesting thing, indeed,
is part two where they show us the making of "King of Hearts" and
"I Drove All Night" + the musical videos "She's A Mistery To Me" and
"Crying". Besides a lot of details presented by his wife Barbara.
It also holds a song never heard before which was recorded in 1957 and
finally the difference between hearing "Crying" in MONO and STEREO during
Roy's famous concert in Holland."
