Editorial Reviews:
Spin (p.106) - "Drawing from country, R&B, pop standards, and a Ravel-like classicism, Orbison tied it all together with his rapturous voice...both achingly human and otherworldly." Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The live readings stick rigidly to what appeared on record, but the Orbison voice is given an even freer reign, his high notes melting hearts at will."

    My son talked me into getting an ipod, then I NEEDED to get CDs to save on ipod since I got rid of all the old LPs. I truly enjoy the songs from 60s which brings back fond memories and great artists.
