Black & white night by Roy Orbison( Recording )

41 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a complete audio recording of the famous "Coconut Grove Sessions," which were taped digitally in September, 1987. It is a Roy Orbison music album made posthumously by Virgin Records from the HBO television special, Roy Orbison and Friends: A Black and White Night, which was filmed in 1987 and broadcast in 1988, and the album was originally released in 1989. It is the only commercially available live recording of him. 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 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 Presleys fabled late 60s and early 70s touring band. That astonishing lineup is all the more noteworthy for the restraint with which they collaborate. Its evident that those superstars came to honor Orbison, not upstage him, resulting in a gratifying cohesion of the performances. It features songs spanning his career from 1961 to 1988
