Eagle Vision's posthumous Roy Orbison DVD retrospective culls 13 digitally restored and remastered live performances of seminal hits from the influential country-pop artist's pioneering 30-year career. Also here are highlights from the 1987 TV special "Roy Orbison and Friends: A Black and White Night" with guest appearances from Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne. In addition to rare interview footage, the DVD features music videos for "She's a Mystery to Me" and "Crying" (with k.d. lang) and audio tracks of the newly discovered 1957 acetate "An Empty Cup (And a Broken Date)." Although the world continues to mourn the loss of one of music's all-time greatest performers, this 90-minute collection continues to cultivate the icon's mystique as well as the lasting impact of his timeless compositions that continue to be rediscovered today.—CR
