    Austin City Limits [#803] Roy Orbison This live version from the August 5, 1982, telecast has been digitally remastered and edited. Roy's appearance was a milestone in the 25-year history of Austin City Limits. He became the first bona fide legend to step onto their stage. His performance took the show to a new level, a larger audience and the status of being a nationally recognized television program. After making a few live appearances at that time, this proved to be the catalyst that brought Roy back to the forefront of the popular music scene. Roy lived up to his reputation of mystique and intrigue. He had just come out of semi-retirement, and not many people had seen him perform live in years. This was certainly his first major performance on television - a full hour - since his comeback began. It was a rare event. From the moment he hit the stage, the audience was on its feet. Many of his songs started with barely a whisper; then they began to vibrate and build, getting more and more intense, until finally, they soared off into the blue to the cheers of the crowd. In the course of the evening, he received more standing ovations than any other performer on any other show. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    American Masters [#2102Z] Marvin Gaye: What's Going On One of the great, enduring figures of American music, Marvin Gaye combined gospel, rhythm and blues, soul and jazz to create his own intimate style -- one that reflected his "path of the heart" and, essentially, gave the world his autobiography in lyrics and melody. He was a huge, glamorous and sometime flamboyant performer, he was a Motown star who challenged and changed the face of popular music with records such as his "What's Going On" in 1971 -- full of honesty, vulnerability and, above all, integrity. Yet, his life was also tainted by the bizarre -- full of torment, bitter-sweet success, constant battling with demons and, ultimately, death at the hand of his own father. duration 56:10   STEREO TVPG

The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers.

As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46

In fact, "50 Cent" was so moved by Robert's writing he wanted to collaborate with him; the result is their book The 50th Law.
