Roy Orbison

Live at Austin City Limits is a DVD and CD released by Image Entertainment in 2003 and 2001, respectively. The set captures a live performance by singer Roy Orbison on August 5, 1982 from the PBS television show Austin City Limits. Orbison was the first "legend" to appear on the weekly series, which, at the time, featured local Texas performers. It is said that Orbison's appearance on the show paved the way for other legends such as Ray Charles, Marty Robbins, and even Johnny Cash to appear on the series. Unfortunately, Orbison was recovering from recent triple bypass heart surgery and also had a head cold on the day so his voice was not as strong as it was usually.

Running time: 60 minutes
