Let's Pretend Orbison?


Kirk

Recommended Posts

Oh my. 

Points for creativity... and for trying that big ending (yes, I listened all the way through). But that’s about it.

Despite the reach, it does bring up a nice fantasy performance. I hope Mr. Orbison is warming up his pipes in heaven to lay down this challenging vocal.

I agree, Kirk. I was actually going to post this one here (great minds) but remembered the audio-only version that included "Starting Over," so I went with that one — in deference to you. :-) 

I wish the full vid, complete with "SO," of this live TV performance would show up on YouTube. I first heard a cassette bootleg of this slow version when I was in college in the mid-late '70s. A classmate had taped it from TV in '73 or '74 and made a copy for me after we discovered each other as maybe the only other Raspberries fans at that college.

1. I dig the "Orbison" take of Let's Pretend. It's kind of a cross between Roy Orbison and the "Monster Mash".

2. I'd never heard that version of Let's Pretend that Kirk and LC posted of Eric singing with the Rs and solo. It is awesome!!
