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.
Pure class

Roy Orbison - Blue Bayou

Roy Orbison - Blue Angel

  1. Someone else tackling 'Blue Bayou'? Perish the thought. Who needs the rest when Roy sings it best.
