5-0 out of 5 stars A fun, in-depth documentary of a huge cultural force
Sure you could buy the soundtrack, but in the movie there's more, besides the amazing visual element. A lot of the fun of the movie is in the rehearsal and interview parts. A great moment comes in a rehearsal where the band is playing the standard "I'm through with Love," which doesn't appear on the soundtrack. Keith Richards offers the most soulful guitar perhaps of his career on the track, after which Berry looks at him and says "you sure play some pretty chords for a rock and roller." Keith appears genuinely humbled by the praise from Berry, whom he reveres. Berry continues with the ultimate compliment: "You shoulda been a jazz musician Jack." Richards, still sheepish but more composed, replies with a sharp smile: "There's no money in it Chuck, there's no money in it." In addition to the beautiful chords, this scene vividly demonstrates the artists' mutual respect and common vernacular, and signifies in a small way the true passing of a musical tradition across years, races, and continents.

5-0 out of 5 stars best rock n roll movie ever!
Chuck Berry invented much of rock n roll and was arguably its greatest showman. Only Elvis or Jimi Hendrix at their wildest could match Berry on stage. Taylor Hackman directs the movie and Keith Richards directs the concert, sort of. There are many laughs and many strong musical performances. Persons interviewed are pretty much the Who's Who of the music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for all who like rock (and roll) music
This is a lovely account of Chuck Berry as told by himself and many other famous musicians (Keith Richards, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen etc. etc.) as they prepare for a concert with a Keith Richards-organized band. What I think is unusual about it and what makes it one of the best "rock films" is that it clearly also presents Chuck as the often-difficult character he clearly is instead of being a hagiography. In fact, knowing this and seeing his humanity, makes the music all the more powerful. Keith Richards (as so often) is priceless, his musical contribution is superb. Chuck "correcting" Keith on his intro to "O Carol" is wonderful. Can you hear the difference between his and Chuck's rendition? The final concert is superb with all the guest stars appearing and keeping a lowish profile. The stars are Berry and, even though he tries very hard not to overshadow the man, Richards who shows us (once again) that there is no one who plays Chuck Berry better than Keith.

I recommend it to any one who likes rock music. Berry is a giant and here he is with other giants.

Of course now it needs to be on DVD....

5-0 out of 5 stars the crown royal of rock and roll movies
this, to me stands as one of the greatest rock films ever. to see chuck berry- the true king of rock and roll- playing as good as he ever did, cantankerous as he ever was, proud and unapologetic,a real american legend. i loved all the other reviews. this movie really touched me. hail hail rock and roll.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still have to wonder?
Chuck Berry gave it to Keith Richards relentlessly both during the rehearsels for this concert and all throughout the show in St Louis that night! And all because Keith had dared him to put on a real show for once with a real band, and not just use some local talent as has been his usuall practice, throughout his entire career.
The lapses in guitar solos during the St Louis concert proves it as there there because of Berry's messing with the arrangements, (not playing as rehearsed)! To Mr.Richards credit the thing turned in to a night of rock n roll magic regardless, and a bit of rock history any lover of the craft would surely love to own.
Mr.Berry found himself in more legal hot water some time after this film was made and one still has to wonder if in fact K.Richards might know more about that then he'll ever let on? Camera's found in the ladies washrooms at Berry Land? As embarrassing a crime as anyone's likely to be charged with one tends to think? And I'd love to know how they got there but...??? ...

5-0 out of 5 stars If it's Roy It's Great
If you are a Roy O. fan you gotta have this movie ! His one and only where he performs a roll not as himself but as an actual charactor.
It's not the best movie you'll ever watch but if you are down in the dumps this will certainly make you laugh.
The music by Roy makes up for a simple story plot and Hey ! After all it is Roy Orbison....
I say Get it...Enjoy... You'll be glad you bought it !
Roy's two biggest fans...Lois ( The Mommy) and 10 year old son Cory

2-0 out of 5 stars Roy Orbison's big mistake
The mistake isn't this film, but the decision that led to it.In early 1965, Roy Orbison left Monument Records - where he had his biggest success - for MGM Records, partly so he could try his hand at movies. His recording career promptly skidded downhill (at least in the US), and this silly Western comedy was the only film he completed; he's adequate enough, but when he's not singing he seems bland and colorless. Still, if you're a big Roy Orbison fan, or a fan of this kind of movie, this tape is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars No glasses!WAY COOOOLL DUDES!
If you like Roy or his music,which you should,this is your movie.Campy as all get out but weren't they all at this period.Better then any beach movie this because the music isn't teeny bopper.Learn it,Love it,Live it.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's the fastest guitar, but it isn't alive! Lies! All Lies!
No surfboards. NO BMX bikes. No Kurt Russell. Yet somehow the bullet-shooting guitar makes up for the wicked mess. Dude, i want a guitar that shoots bullets. I found a mistake, though. I know a person who plays the guitar much faster. My friend, Crazy Evan Jones, hits a wicked fresh maximum thrust of 600 spm (strums per minute). We clocked it, yo. It's all official. We should rename this movie "One of the fastest guitar's that isn't alive, but is fast nonetheless, dude!" If you like this movie, i recommend "Endless Summer", "Rad", "The Fastest Trumpet in Toledo", "The Slowest Marraca Shaker Alive", and "The Best Bassist in Critial Condition". These are all real movies, although they don't rock as hard as THIS one. You don't even know. Hey Drew, if a cow dies in the forest, who will light the grill? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Amazing DVD!
We saw part of this dvd at a party at friends house last week and bought it from Amazon. We just watched it all at home tonight. Fantastic! I was never 'into' Orbison in my youth when he was first popular, but after watching this cd I have to recognize him as one of the greatest. What an amazing, unusual, voice. You feel as if it is going to 'crack' at any moment from those long, high notes, but never does--it's always perfectly controlled. As if Orbison doing Orbison's great repertoire wasn't enough, the "Friends" doing backup for Orbison doing all his great songs are, among others: a young Bruce Springsteen [looking star struck the whole night b/c he was playing with Orbison], Jackson Brown, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, with Bonnie Raitt, k.d. Laing, and Jennifer Warnes doing the female backup vocals. The Orbison/Springseen duo on "Sweet Dreams" alone would be worth the price of the album but all the songs are great. Play it in SurroundSound if you have it--can't beat it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I didn't realize how great Roy was...
I didn't realize exactly how great Roy Orbison was until I saw his "Black & White Night" on PBS several months ago. That session brought all of my memories together into one massive event. I contributed to the PBS station just to get the VHS and CD versions of that concert, recognizing just how special it was. I just now spent nearly five hours listening to that CD while I read most of the 115 reviews on Amazon (avg = 5 stars out of 5) of the DVD, and the advantages (editing, video enhancements, extra tracts) of the DVD over the VHS and CD version I have. I just ordered two copies of the DVD (one to watch/listen to, and one for backup).

If you have read this far, you realize the contribution of Roy, his talent, and the incredible array of stars that attended him at the "Black & White Night" event. For no other reason than your personal satisfaction, buy this DVD!

5-0 out of 5 stars simply stupendous
I first saw this DVD on public TV as an enticement to donate. What a great investment. Roy's voice and songs are unique and hopefully will live on indefinitely through this CD and DVD. When I'm home alone and can crank up the sound on the DVD and watch and listen to Roy and friends it is almost spellbinding. I can't get enough of the "girls" as backup. Bruce is great (he seems like a baby almost)....totally in awe of Roy and James Burton...who seems to be the White of "Black and White"...what a plucker he is. When in the car, the CD carries me through until I can watch the DVD again.I own many CDs and DVDs but watch/listen to these two the most...over and over!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Five stars NOT ENOUGH
I have been to hundreds of concerts, from Jazz, Pop, Big Band, Country, Classic and whatever I've left out. I wasn't aware of this one until I saw it on PBS. With the Boss, k.d.lang, and a group of the best musicians all playing free and singing along with Orbison's unique and beautiful range, this wasn't a concert, it was a celebration. It was in the top 5 I've seen in a lifetime (with my range of interests there have been others, such as a Mahlar's Symphony of a Thousand, The Highwaymen, Jazz at the Philharmonic, etc. that reached a peak of their own form). But the excitement and pure enjoyment of the performers and listeners made it an emotional experience. Like a great Willie Nelson or Louis Armstrong performance it can be seen over and over.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning! Not just for "fans"...
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. Many of the supporting artists are legends in their own neck of the woods, but there are no 'show-ponies' here--it's all just a well-rehearsed, supportive, even modest performance--yet there are many moments when one gets a feeling of watching and hearing musical genius in action.

Younger friends and relatives who had only a passing knowledge of Roy Orbison were stunned by the brilliance of the performances on this DVD. I've bought several copies as gifts, which were very highly appreciated. I think the playing of those at Christmas and New Year gatherings may have stimulated a buying spree among the many other people who were captivated, as I was, by the whole sound and feel of this delectable DVD.

I don't avidly collect music videos, yet I've seen many from all of the 'greats'. However, I've never seen a better concert on video. I don't think anyone who really loved music could watch this and be unaffected. I've read all of the reviews, so far, and I agree with almost every single one...I have one or two very minor gripes, but it's probably not worth your time to read those. If you love great music, just shell out the money and buy it. You will not be disappointed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No Limits On ... Live at Austin City Limits
I watch this DVD at least twice a month and I never tire of it.
I believe that Roy had his famous" butterfly" stomach at the beginning of the show,half way through the first song Roy hit
his stride.The rest of this show was outstanding.Roy was using
some of his favorite musicians for this performance.You could tell that Roy really was enjoying the "jamin" during the show.
All of the musicians were excellent.The DVD is awesome because
I can hit the zoom in button and get great close shots of Roy's
face.Some people have said that they don't like his looks. All
that I can say to that, is they don't know beauty when it hits them in the "ears." With the quality of this DVD shown on my large screen TV,it is almost as good as having Roy standing in
my living room.I also enjoyed the Documentary Footage,Still Gallery and the Song Lyrics.I also have it on VHS.But the DVD is
a better way to enjoy Roy Orbison performing.I love,love,love
this DVD!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Big "O" at his best !!
A great show by Roy at his very best ! Outstanding song selections...where can see and hear him do one of his best rockers,in my opinion...Lana!The whole show AWESOME!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Voice
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.

2-0 out of 5 stars totally 80's infected
alright, I'm a total Roy fan, however I was thoroughly dissapointed with this performance. For some reason the band felt the need to "modernize" all his classic songs, which resulted in 80's bastardizations of all his classic's. All the songs are altered to different tempo's to accomidate a different era, which I felt is "oh so wrong".

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!
If you're a Roy Orbison fan or just an oldies fan , get this DVD. I own both Black & white Night and Live in Austin Texas. And I love them both. The Black & White Audio is superior to The Austin DVD.....But COLOR is COLOR. I think it gives more depth than the Black & White. That's why I own both. Two totally different atmospheres...that's what sets them apart. If you watch your videos in two channel rather than surround, you should'nt notice much of a difference. Again you have to remember the supporting cast of Black & White was excellent. There I go again. Buy them both, you won't be dissapointed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Roy Orbison was magnificent
Roy Orbison was one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. This video features all of his classics, including:

1. Oh, Pretty Woman (intro)
2. Only The Lonely
3. In Dreams
4. Mean Woman Blues
5. Blue Bayou
6. Candy Man
7. Crying
8. It's Over
9. Oh, Pretty Woman
10. Running Scared
11. Leah
12. Dream Baby
13. Ooby Dooby

Note - the title is a little confustion. This isn't the type of tribute that is being released these days where other people are doing covers of a legendary singer. This is video that was released in the mid-1980s featuring Roy Orbison and his band live - a fabulous concert! ... Read more

Amazon.com essential video

Few early rockers were more gifted or less honored in their prime thanthe late Roy Orbison, whose vaulting tenor and vulnerable love songs conjured heartbreak and desire with operatic intensity. This 1987 concert special, originally broadcast on Showtime, came two decades after Orbison had retreated from pop's front lines, yet neither Orbison nor his music coasts on mere nostalgia: in every respect, A Black and White Night survives as a triumphant performance and a superb video production, as well as a first-rate retrospective of Orbison's hits.

Filmed in black and white against the streamlined art deco stage of the since-demolished Coconut Grove in downtown Los Angeles, the concert is buoyed by a remarkable cast of A-list Orbison fans who signed on as his accompanists.Under the direction of producer T-Bone Burnett, the stage band thus includes Jackson Browne, Burnett, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, J.D. Souther, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, and Jennifer Warnes, along with the rhythm section from Elvis Presley's fabled late '60s and early '70s touring band.That astonishing lineup is all the more noteworthy for the restraint with which they collaborate--it's evident that those superstars came to honor Orbison, not upstage him, resulting in a gratifying cohesion to the performances.

Orbison himself sounds as powerful as ever, his soaring falsetto cresting as dramatically as it did on the studio versions of the hits that inevitably dominate.Those songs meanwhile confirm that his blue chip admiration society came as much for the caliber of his writing as for his ravishing voice: if he remains best known for the jaunty come-on of "Pretty Woman," Orbison was first and foremost a rock balladeer, capable of bringing lumps to our throats with such classics as "Crying" and "Only the Lonely," or conjuring romantic trances through such gentle charmers as "Dream Baby." On this night, he handled all of them with fervor and finesse. --Sam Sutherland ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Reveals the great personality that was Roy Orbison
This video provides a good overview of Orbison's career, with a focus on the end of his career when a number of current-day pop stars played and recorded with him. His almost unearthly ability to use "the voice" -- to get it right on the first take -- and to write songs that broke every formal model or mode is clear, both in the clips of his performances and in testimony from other musicians. If you have ever enjoyed Roy Orbison, or would like to be turned on to a personality you had no idea was behind his music, you'll enjoy this excellent documentary. ... Read more
