Music Break: Roy Orbison

Oh, Pretty Woman (1964)...


  1. Great music break...Orbison is one of the greats almost no one sees except on PBS, and then only at pledge time when a lot of people too young to remember him speak of how wonderful he was. Almost always, those people are wearing sunglasses. I'm often tempted to call in and say the word "Claudette" and bask in the silence. Not that I'm an Orbison scholar, but you gotta know some stuff before you don the shades and pretend you care.

    Cool break, JR. Thank you for posting it.

  2. I chose this clip because it's an early live version with pretty good audio quality, since there are already so many later versions of the PBS variety around.

    Thanks for reading, watching and commenting.
