‘Black & White Night 30’ – Out Now
February 24, 2017
It’s 30 years since Roy Orbison’s iconic ’87 comeback gig – featuring appearances from Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits & K.D. Lang – and you can finally experience the show from hundreds of unseen angles with ‘Black & White Night 30’, out now on Blu-Ray, DVD and CD.
Originally shot on seven cameras at the Coconut Grove Club in LA and broadcast as ‘Roy Orbison & Friends: A Black & White Night’, Roy’s son Alex and co-editor Luke Chalk have re-edited the entire performance from all the previously unseen angles. Almost every shot is brand new.
Extras include a whole host of unreleased material, much of which was only rumoured to even exist. Previously unseen versions of ‘Oh Pretty Woman’ and ‘Blue Angel’ and footage of the subsequent ‘secret concert’ where Roy and the band returned to the stage to play five songs after the audience had left! All tracks have been freshly remastered by Richard Dodd.
There’s also a 33 minute documentary featuring rehearsal footage and interviews with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, k.d lang, Elvis Costello and more.
