The 'In Dreams' Retrospective traces Roy Orbison's career from the first song he learned at age six through his music with the Traveling Wilburys shortly before his untimely death in 1988. Lead singer Ron Holm channels Orbison's music with uncanny fidelity, and the program includes many of Orbison's most familiar songs in addition to songs by musicians who influenced him. Accompanists Jannie Nelson and John Bishoff provide lush orchestrations and vocal harmonies that were characteristic of Orbison's studio sound.
