Customer Reviews

This DVD has all 13 Selena videos that show her at her best.
Stacey Chaney
Every couple of years, Capitol Records releases a new compilation album with the same Selena songs in English, and I think fans want something new.
Juan Ciccone
Finally a nice compilation put on DVD including all of their music videos in very good format and quality.

Roy Orbison's widow Barbara has put a lot of thought and effort into packaging compilations of his work and there is a wide selection available now, so you may want to visit his offical website and peruse what's available before deciding what to buy, but one thing is for certain; you cannot go wrong with this particular DVD. It has a great selection of concert tracks from various stages in his career, then when you switch to the special features you find almost a whole disk's worth of video and audio extras. There are even original and remastered versions of one audio ("An Empty Cup"), for comparison. So it is a great DVD for the serious collector as well as a perfect introduction for those new to Orbison.

Between tracks, Roy says a few words about each song. He comes across as personable, modest and sensitive.

He was at times a bigger star in Britain and elsewhere than in his native US, and his contribution to Rock 'n' Roll has only recently been fully acknowledged. This DVD should help put the record straight.

It seems to me that Selena's family is still reproducing the same material again and again. The DVD Selena: Greatest Hits (2003) was in fact included as a bonus material in the CD Selena Ones (2002). As a Selena's fan, however, I bought both. I rate the DVD a 4 stars because the quality of the picture should be improved.

His greatest hits and truly a great DVD. I first viewed this as a special on TV and had to have it. The clips chosen are superb. The three from A Black and White Night, with Orbison backed by other music greats, are a treat - the contributions from Springsteen, Costello, Souther, Burton, et al are absolutely magical. And if you love "You Got It", you will have to get this DVD, if only for the exciting and memorable performance of that great song. Orbison introduces most of the clips, with interesting and witty stories behind the songs, including a great anecdote about how he hit that final high note on Running Scared. There's also a lot of extra value, including press kits with more interviews and music, tributes from those who knew and worked with him; and also the She's a Mystery to Me video. On Amazon's 1 to 5 scale, I'd like to give this 10!

This is defenitely not the best overview of Roy Orbison's amazing talents, but it is a great way to get a quick glimpse of all that set him apart from the rest - the heartfelt lyrics, the superb musicianship, and above all else, that magnificent soaring voice.

Roy Orbison's widow Barbara has taken a lot of care to put together this package which combines 12 live performances spanning Roy's career from the 1960s to the late 1980s and an early promotional video (for "Walk On") from the 1970s.

The video and audio quality is fairly spotty but a great deal of care has been taken to clean up these clips and upgrade them to 5.1 sound. In most cases, the refurbished tracks sound great and there is no gimmicky processing of old mono clips into surround sound. (For proof, check the mono-to-5.1 comparison of "Crying" that is included as a bonus feature.)

The surround sound comes in two flavors - Dolby Digital and DTS, but it's the latter that really shines. And there's also the original mono sound on some clips for the purists.

Even the old mono clips sound terrific, and have great presence. But of course they aren't a patch on the 5.1 clips from "A Black And White Night" and "Live At Austin City Limits" remixed by Elliott Scheiner.

The down side? If you already own the two above-named DVDs, this one has a lot of material in common with them.

The up side? The great care that has been lavished on this set, including little touches like the snippets from a Roy Orbison interview that play between the songs and let you hear from the man himself about he created and recorded some of his best known songs.

You also get two bonus videos - "Mystery Girl" and the duet version of "Crying" recorded with k.d. lang that have been remixed into 5.

If you don't own any Orbison footage on DVD, this is no doubt a great way to become acquainted with him via DVD. However, if you are an Orbison fan and own his other DVD's and videos (which are few in number), then the "Greatest Hits" DVD offers little in the way of footage you don't already own.

The DVD relies heavily on footage from "Black and White Night", the "Combo Concert" from the 60's, his "Austin City Limits" show, and clips from the "Anthology" collection, all of which have already been released on DVD (and in the case of "Combo Concert", VHS only). The only totally "new to DVD" songs included in the main feature are two songs from an early 80's live show (probably a year or two before his "Austin City Limits" performance).

The bonus features on the DVD offer some additional "new to DVD" footage, which is a good consolation considering all but two songs on the main feature are common for any Orbison fan.

This DVD is still a must-own for Orbison fans for the new material that is presented on this DVD, and the price is somewhat fair. I just wish they would have taken the opportunity of this DVD to include more footage that Orbison fans didn't already own.
