Roy Orbison, live from Festival Hall, Melbourne, Australia - two shows - 26th and 27th January 1967

Although chart success proved elusive following his transatlantic #1 with Oh, Pretty Woman in 1964, Roy Orbison remained a hugely popular live draw. Reeling from the death of his wife in a motorcycle accident in June 1966, he threw himself into touring.

In January 1967 he travelled to Australasia as part of a package that also included the Walker Brothers and the Yardbirds. Despite suffering from a cold on arrival, he played superbly, backed by his regular band the Webbs.

His two performances at Melbourne's Festival Hall were broadcast on Circle J Radio and are presented here in full, together with background notes and images.
