5.0 out of 5 stars hypnotic at times Oct. 9 2004
By Frank
Format:DVD
Wonderful collaboration of musicians and singers. All his hits are here, 'only the lonely', 'dream baby', 'blue bayou', 'running scared', 'in dreams', 'crying', 'it's over', 'pretty woman' etc. You can see the admiration from the crowd and people on stage for this legend. This dvd was a beautiful gift to his fans before his death. The black and white was a nice touch as it gives the concert a nostalgia look. The performers contribute nicely to the concert but allow Orbison to be centre stage. Roy's music timing is flawless. Thought I might get sick of hearing 'pretty woman' after so many times but I was wrong, this live version gave it life. The only problem I had was I found the dvd a little expensive ($34. Cdn), but shop around. This dvd is still worth it. The sound is unbelievable. Get this dvd and let the violins, his words and voice melt your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any collection Sept. 7 2005
By Bob Kay
Format:DVD
Clearly one of the best music DVD's in my collection - sound quality is phenomenal. Performance is flawless...absolutely flawless. Every musician plays their heart out here...the on stage talent as good as it gets. You know, I'm not a huge fan of Roy, but this DVD is very, very special and Pretty Woman at the end is just so over the top - it will blow you away unlike anything you've ever heard and watched before!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Masterpiece to honour Roy Orbison Oct. 11 2003
Format:DVD
Rarely does a musical performance bring tears to my eyes, but "The Black and White Night" has allowed me to relive one of rock and rolls greatest events.
Roy Orbison will forever stand on a stage and sharing centre mic with Elvis and Johnny Cash. To say that he is a treasure is an understatement. His influence on individuals and groups is legendary.
I have been a Roy Orbison fan since I was eight years old (43 years ago). He has been a part of my life longer than any other person I have known. So when I say that "The Black and White Night" is the finest tribute any artist could hope for, please believe me. The DVD must be a part of your musical collection. It is a masterpiece in honouring one of rocks pioneering legends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable! Feb. 13 2009
Format:Blu-ray
If you are a real Roy Orbison fan you have to have this Blue Ray DVD in your collection. Not only does he do virtually all of his hits he has assembled an incredible group of musicians to help him out. It wasn't his last concert but pretty close. I just can't say enough about this performance, it's fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! Not just for "fans"... March 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Last year, an electronics store here in Tokyo wisely chose this DVD to try to sell more 'home theater' systems. I was in a huge rush, but was instantly captivated by the phenomenal guitar sounds I was hearing. Milliseconds later, I recognized the song, the major artist and the fact that there was probably a whole, live concert of Roy Orbison being played. I stopped my mad rush to an appointment to listen to "Pretty Woman" in its entirety. [This is the finale...] Then, as the crowd in front of me dissipated, I caught sight of some of the performers on a gigantic, but low, plasma display and was a little surprised to see that the whole concert had obviously been recorded in monochrome.
I have to admit that I've never been a huge Roy Orbison fan--I didn't buy his albums when I was young, but no-one could really DISlike his voice or his compositions. I probably knew every one of his numbers that was regularly played on the radio and I consider myself to have "grown up" singing along to Roy Orbison's mellow sounds. So, although my tastes run the gamut from world and ethnic music, thru blues, jazz and 'fusion' all the way to classics and a (very) little opera, I don't classify myself as a great 'rock-a-billy' fan, or even as an expert on music. That day, however, I became obsessed with getting hold of this particular concert for enjoyment at home.
I got hold of it easily enough from Amazon and have to say that it knocked my socks off. For me, the real highlights are the guitarwork of James Burton and Bruce Springsteen, but the whole 'feel' of this concert is one of a tribute to that inimitable, great voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars How can it get any better? June 17 2003
Format:DVD
Okay, I may not be a big fan of Roy Orbison, but you don't just have to be a fan to enjoy seeing him in concert. And if you own this on dvd, you will get the full concert plus Claduette and Blue Bayou for some reason, is not on the video tape. Yet, this is a rare concert to see in black and white. Roy Orbison and severla perfromers at the Conut Grove, pefroming this concert. But sadly since this concert, Conut Grove, was demolished. And Roy Orbison had died of a heart attack a year after doing this concert. Roy Orbison sings sings song like Only The Lonely, Candy Man, Sweet Dreams Baby (How Long Must I dream), Claudette, and Oh, Pretty Woman. If you want to see Roy Orbison, peforming in concert, in your home, this will be it, because there no other live recordings of Roy Orbison. Yet, he played a lot of concerts. If you have seen the concert, and wonder why he is wearing sunglasses, the people at WTTW said, that Roy Orbison had bad eye sight, and he couldn't see without glasses, and he has even tried, they also said, one day before playing a concert in England, Roy Orbison discovered that he had left his regular glasses at home, but it just so happened that he had sunglass on him, and that became his trade mark. Just recently WTTW, aired this concert twice in one week, first on a Sunday Night, then a Saturday night. If you enjoy a concert with very little talk, in it, this is the concert for you, Roy Orbison onlyed talked twice and both was to say "Thank You" and some body else is heard (not very well) saying 1, 2, 3, 4, before a song. And I have to admit, for being in his 50's at the time of this peformance, Roy Orbison looks very good for his age, in fact, I don't even believe he was only in his early 50's, because he looks like he was younger than he looks in his early 50's.
