Movie Reviews

The Voice
R. Paavo | Michigan | 02/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In rock music, there are few who have a voice easily recognizable. In the early 60s Roy was one of the solo artist rock male vocalists who stood out from the crowd along with contempories Gene Pitney and Del Shannon. When I saw Roy perform on Austin City Limits in 1982 I was mesmerized. Twenty plus years later after watching this DVD again, the same feeling was there. Roy's voice is in excellent form and though he says almost nothing between songs and stands still on stage, he is obviously enjoying himself. Roy just stands there and belts out the hits from the classics like In Dreams and Oh Pretty Woman to the bouncy Lana and Working For The Man. And the audience is eating it up, applauding at introductions to the songs they recognize and smiling along with the Big O.Some say Roy had the best male voice in rock music ever. Whether one agrees or not, I doubt anyone will be disappointed in this DVD because the voice is in great form."
A Great Video
blithgow2 | Massachusetts, USA | 02/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What I found so great about this video is: It was done in Texas, Roys home state, here in America. Also seeing this live in color for a change was very nice, it made me feel Roy was here.Hearing and seeing him do Lana and That Loving You Feeling Again was exciting and special. But, what really moved me was his singing of It's Over, the best I've heard! If you love Roy Orbison like I do, I highly recommend this video."
Roy Orbison/Austin City Limits
Michael L. Starnes | Sumter, SC USA | 08/16/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a truly outstanding DVD of Roy Orbison at his best. It is a must have to any fan's R&R collection. I especially enjoyed Ooby-Dooby and Go, Go, Go Down the Line, his first record release and the first song he wrote. The tribute to the "Hound Dog Man" was very touching. The other track were just plain great listening."
Long Live "The Big O"
Robert A. Glover | Ontario, Canada | 01/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fortunately while "The Big O" was alive I had the honor of seeing him live four times. On this DVD copy of Live At Austin City Limits, Roy handles his crowd the same way as when I saw him. He starts everything off very slow and easy and by the time he belts out "Crying" he has the crowd eating out of his hand and screaming for more.

I found the DVD very enjoyable. The only black mark against it is that early in the DVD there seem to be some problems with focusing of the stage right camera, which made some scenes to appear blurry at times. I enjoyed the many close-ups of Roy. You could see how much he was enjoying himself and you could make out how little effort he was using with his 10 octave voice to reach those high notes that became his legacy.

Although I found his band over played "Working for the Man," it was a pleasure to hear Roy perform it on this DVD. It is a very difficult number to do both musically and vocally. All in all I enjoyed this DVD and would recommend it to any Roy Orbison fan, young or old."
