If you like Roy Orbison, you will like this. Are you a fan of Bruce Springsteen? He's there, as is Jennifer Warnes - many other really outstanding musicians. If you are not familiar with Orbison, know that he was very influential in the early days of rock, as many of the people you may have heard of, such as McCartney, Springsteen, etc. cite him as an influence.
If nothing else, it is fun to watch the interaction of the people on stage - you can tell they really enjoyed what they were doing. Highly recommended!!
Almost rated it 4-1/2 stars since "Blue Angel" (cut by Cinemax) wasn't on it, but the balance carries the vote. Springsteen is great as #2 vocalist, and kd lang, Jennifer Warnes, and Bonnie Raitt singing backup? R U Kidding me?
BTW, just to absorb James Burton - the Master of the Telecaster - playing again alone makes it worth watching and listening...especially on the elongated versions of "Go, Go, Go", "Mean Woman Blues", and "Pretty Woman" .
