Please try again later. Verified Purchase. I must keep my Singles Collection CD, released in by Pollygram as the mixes sounded more balanced. Roy's voice sounds clear and the music sounds clear, but the tone is too low. Sorry Roy's Boys, but you've lost 2 stars over this.
I am glad to mention that not only are the discs in LP cases, the discs are housed in CD envalopes which hold the CD's. I read other comments and how some There was alot that i did"t know about Mr.
It's when i saw his movie The Fastest Guitar Alive. Ithought it was a awesome movie. I read other comments and how some didn't think he was good looking. As for me i thought he to be very handsome. Then i looked up Mrhad two. Oribsons life and the things that he went through with the loss of Glaudett and then his son's.
I don't know how he survived. Ibelieve God was with himhe had Wesley and his parents and his music. But most of all he believed in himself and of course he had his future wife Barbara to help him through it. There is one question that i have and that is why did Wesley live with his grandparents and not with him and his new wife? How did this make Wesley feel growing up and even now as a adult?
I think Wesley looks just like his dad. I love his voice it's a voice that no one could Barbara Roy And E.P.P.* - If You Want Me (Vinyl) copy. When i listen to his songs they so beautiful that i can feel every word touch my heart. I'd like to say a special thank you to BarbaraAlex, Roy Jr. I listened to it three times and each time i cried. I know that your father would be very proud!!!!!!! One person found this helpful. An excellent collection.
Not everything is as good as the Monument recordings, but there are classics here everywhere. The discs are housed in a sturdy box with a fairly good book. The only fault is the lack of a tracklisting anywhere other than the back of the cd covers. The covers themselves are, as far as I can tell accurate reproductions of the originals. For 13 discs the price is fair but you should also get One of the Lonely Ones, the previously unreleased LP from this period to complete the picture.
It looks as if I am the first person reviewing the LP box version of his release. I have contemplated getting the CD version of this box for quite some time, but when a used copy of the vinyl came available for not much more, I couldn't resist. I am disappointed for several reasons. First, the booklet is all paper, and the content written by one of "Roy's boys" is extremely poorly written, like someone wrote it for a freshman high school composition class.
It is full of redundancy, poor English, way too subjective, inaccurate "facts" and extremely shallow. If Ray had brains, he certainly didn't pass them "down the line. The vinyl itself was pressed in the Czech Republic and has problems with excessive warp-age, bubbles that cause noise and several places where dust or some other anomaly is pressing into the vinyl, causing noise that cannot be removed.
I had similar problems with the Beatles boxes, so is there no place in the world that can give a high quality pressing? As far as the music, you've probably read it all before. Alex Orbison, Roy's son, goes to great lengths in the booklet to argue that Roy's MGM years were just as good as his Monument ones, but he makes a very poor case.
While there is much worthwhile music on these LPs, most of them seem to be targeted at an "adult contemporary" market. His voice is actually suitable for that, and he still has that voice. Sometimes there will be a song here and there that really stands out, but believe me, there few, if any, lost classics here.
With only a few exceptions, there is nothing embarrassing here, and those anomalies are worth sorting through to hear the voice, the magnificent voice, of Roy Orbison. Oh, just a work about the remastering. Clearly, this was remastered for older ears, as midrange and highs are very limited. Alex refers to the early CDs of some of this material was too harsh, and actually he was right. Most of these get rid of the harshness at the expense of a well defined mid and high end.
If you have a good EQ and a good ear, you can compensate, but you shouldn't have to. If you don't, it sounds very, very flat. Gordon Pfannenstiel. A large chunk of Orbison. Gift for an Orbison lover. So nice to hear all the different songs. Great quality. I got it for my husband for Christmas and he loves it big Roy Orbison fan. Great music from the past absolutely love listening to it. This is a great box set with all Roy's MGM albums in one place. Each episode followed a somewhat similar format, often including recurring sketches.
The show started after the intro and a batch of shorts skits that served as cold open with a short dialogue between Rowan and Martin. Shortly afterward, Rowan would intone: "C'mon Dick, let's go to the party". This live to tape segment comprised all cast members and occasional surprise celebrities dancing before a s " mod " party backdrop, delivering one- and two-line jokes interspersed with a few bars of dance music later adopted on The Muppet Showwhich had a recurring segment that was similar to "The Cocktail Party" with absurd moments from characters.
The show then proceeded through rapid-fire comedy bits, taped segments, and recurring sketches. At the end of every show, Rowan turned to his co-host and said, "Say good night, Dick", to which Martin replied, "Good night, Dick! The show then featured cast members' opening panels in a psychedelically painted "joke wall" and telling jokes, After which, the show would continue with one final batch of skits, before drawing to a close. After the applause died, executive producer George Schlatter's solitary clapping continued even as the screen turned blank and the production logo, network chimes, and NBC logo appeared.
Although episodes included most of the above segments, the arrangement of the segments was often interchanged. The show often featured guest stars.
Sometimes, the guest had a prominent spot in the program, at other times the guest would pop in for short "quickies" one- or two-line jokes interspersed throughout the show — as was done most famously by Richard Nixonwhen running for president. Goldie Hawnwho was under contract to Good Morning World at the time of the pilot, joined for season 1 in after that show was canceled. Only the two hosts, announcer Gary Owensand Buzzi, Carne, Gibson, and Johnson, were in all 14 episodes of season one.
All of the new cast members from season two left at the end of that season except Sues, who stayed on until At the end of the —69 season, Carne chose not to renew her contract, although she did make appearances during — Lily Tomlin joined in the middle of the season. The —71 season brought new additions to the cast include tall, lanky, sad-eyed Dennis Allenwho alternately played quietly zany characters and the straight man for anybody's jokes; comic actress Ann Elderwho also contributed to scripts, tap dancer Barbara Sharma, and Johnny Brown.
Arte Johnson, who created many memorable characters, insisted on star billing, apart from the rest of the cast. And Arte Johnson! With Ruth Buzzi Johnson and Henry Gibson left the show during the fourth season; they were replaced by former Hogan's Heroes stars Richard Dawson and Larry Hovis, both of whom had appeared occasionally in the first season.
However, the loss of Johnson's many popular characters caused ratings to drop further. The show celebrated its th episode during the —72 season, with Carne, Worley, Johnson, Gibson, Graves, and Tiny Tim all returning for the festivities.
John Wayne was on hand for his first cameo appearance since Except for holdovers Dawson, Owens, Buzzi, Allen, and only occasional appearances from Tomlin, a new cast was brought in.
Former regular Jo Anne Worley returned for two guest appearances, including the final episode. These last shows never aired in the edited half-hour reruns syndicated through Lorimar Productions to local stations in and later on Nick at Nite inalthough they were included when the program was rerun on the Decades over-the-air television channel in Of over three dozen entertainers to join the cast, Barbara Roy And E.P.P.* - If You Want Me (Vinyl) Rowan, Martin, Owens, and Buzzi were there from beginning to end.
However, Owens was not in the pilot and Buzzi missed two first-season episodes. Keyes,  Barbara Roy And E.P.P.* - If You Want Me (Vinyl) Wedlock, Jr. Barbara Roy And E.P.P.* - If You Want Me (Vinyl) musical director for Laugh-In was Ian Bernard. He wrote all the musical "play-ons" that introduced comedy sketches like Lily Tomlin's character, Edith Ann, the little girl who sat in a giant rocking chair, and Arte Johnson's old man character, Tyrone, Barbara Roy And E.P.P.* - If You Want Me (Vinyl), who always got hit with a purse.
He also appeared in many of the cocktail scenes where he directed the band as they stopped and started between jokes. Composer-lyricist Billy Barnes wrote all of the original musical production numbers in the show, and often appeared on-camera, accompanying Johnson, Buzzi, Worley, or Sues, on a golden grand piano.
The show was recorded at NBC's Burbank facility using two-inch quadruplex videotape. As computer-controlled online editing had not been invented at the time, post-production video editing of the montage was achieved by the error-prone method of visualizing the recorded track with ferrofluid and cutting it with a razor blade or guillotine cutter and splicing with adhesive tape, in a manner similar to film editing.
This had the incidental benefit of ensuring the preservation of the master tape, as a spliced tape could not be recycled for further use. Laugh-In editor Arthur Schneider won an Emmy Award in for his pioneering use of the " jump cut " — the unique editing style in which a sudden cut from one shot to another was made without a fade-out. This was corrected in digital re-editing by removing the problematic video at the edit point and then slowing down the video image just before the edit point; time-expanding the slowed-down section long enough to allot enough time to seamlessly reinsert the audio portion from the removed portion of video.
During the September 16,episode, Richard Nixon, running for president, appeared for a few seconds with a disbelieving vocal inflection, asking "Sock it to me? And I believe that.
And I've had to live with that. She began the episode as an arrogant snob of an actress; however, a bucket of water thrown at her transformed her back to her giggling dumb blonde persona.
On multiple occasions, producer George Schlatter attempted to get William F. Buckley Jr. In the episode that aired December 28,Buckley appeared in an unusual sit-down segment portions of which were scattered throughout the episode flanked by Rowan and Martin and fielding questions from the cast which included Lily Tomlin doing her Fast Talker shtick and giving humorous answers to each.
Near the end, when Rowan asked Buckley why he finally agreed to appear on the show, Buckley explained that Schlatter had written him "an irresistable letter" in which he promised to fly Buckley out to Burbank "in an airplane with two right wings".
At the end, Rowan thanked him for appearing, noting that "you can't be that smart without having a sense of humor, and you have a delightful one". A humor magazine tie-in, Laugh-In Magazinewas published for one year 12 issues: October through October —no issue was published Decemberand a syndicated newspaper comic strip was drawn by Roy Doty  and eventually collected for a paperback reprint.
The Laugh-In trading cards from Topps had a variety of items, such as a card with a caricature of Jo Anne Worley with a large open mouth. With a die-cut hole, the card became interactive; a finger could be inserted through the hole to simulate Worley's tongue. Little doors opened on Joke Wall cards to display punchlines. On Letters to Laugh-Ina short-lived spin-off daytime show hosted by Gary Owens, cast members read jokes sent in by viewers, which were scored by applause meter.
The eventual winning joke was read by actress Jill St. John: "What do you get when you cross an elephant with a jar of peanut butter? A pound sandwich that sticks to the roof of your mouth! Pamela Rodgers was the only Laugh-In cast member to co-star in the film.
Made to capitalize on the popularity of the series, the short was made for Barbara Roy And E.P.P.* - If You Want Me (Vinyl) salesmen to introduce the new Kenmore freezer campaign.
