The Big O Sings the Blues
We went to see the Robert Carlyle film The Legend of Barney Thomson last week.
A highly enjoyable black comedy (particularly if you come from Glasgow) based on the novel The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson by Robert Lindsay. His books are well worth checking out.Very funny indeed.
The soundtrack to the film features a version of Blue Bayou but regrettably not by Roy Orbison.
On the basis that you can't improve on perfection here is the man himself on a blues mission.
Roy Orbison - Blue Bayou
Roy Orbison - Blue Angel
