Season finale finished off w/ Roy Orbison singing an old B side, "Shahdaroba." A little history: I was v.p. of the Roy Orbison Fan Club of Western New York a couple years before that came out (flip side of "In Dreams"). I later interviewed Roy for Crawdaddy and Roy asked me to write liner notes for an album. About that time, I got Bruce Springsteen deeply into Roy, leading directly, I feel, to the "Thunder Road" reference. Anyway, here is Roy's great, "Pretty Woman."
