EDITORS’ NOTES

Roy Orbison was nothing if not a dreamer; this 1963 album, cut during a particularly fertile period, makes that thrillingly clear. He's the brokenhearted lover subsisting on fantasy in the title track, a prisoner trapped in memories of better times on "Blue Bayou," and a man blissfully blind to the border between dreams and reality in an ethereal take on The Everly Brothers’ "All I Have to Do Is Dream." Orbison's graceful, near-operatic tenor vividly brings all that dreaming to life.
