"The Big O" as Roy Orbison became universally known, was one of the most distinctive singers and songwriters of the Rock 'n' Roll era. Starting his career in the late fifties, he really hit the big time at the start of the sixties when a string of wonderful hit singles brought him fame on a worldwide basis. After a quiet period in the seventies he made a comeback in the eighties both as a solo artist and later as a member of the Traveling Wilburys. This live recording, released now for the first time, comes from a concert at the Front Row Theater in Cleveland on December 4th 1988, just two days before his sudden death from a heart attack on December 6th at the age of only 52. Orbison is in fine form delivering many of his best loved songs in his own unique style and with no indication of the tragedy to come. It is a fitting tribute to a truly great artist.
