Happy 72nd Birthday Roy!

The late Roy Orbison would be 72 years old today (April 23, 2008.) His recorded legacy is long and significant; most people know Oh, Pretty Woman, Crying, Blue Bayou and other songs that he wrote or co–wrote.

Mystery Girl was his comeback album as a solo artist. It was released in February 1989, following Roy's untimely death in December 1988. It is a magnificent album, with nary a weak track. You Got It reached the Top 10 on Billboard as a single; the album itself reached the Top 10 on Billboard.

Although all the songs are Orbison style, check out A Love So Beautiful, Mystery Girl and Careless Heart, in particular. The voice soars as the drama builds in the music – a style Roy was known for in the early 60's when he had hit after hit.

Yes, this album compares most favorably with the Big O's best days at Monument Records. It is highly recommended!!

Wow! Roy has improved!!! What an excellent album..... Well Orbison has done it again. "You Got It" is obvious most well known song on album. PLEASE do not overlook the ENTIRE album. If you like Roy, you will listen to this album until your ears bleed!!!!

"She's a mystery girl"

The story of how "She's a Mystery to Me" was written is amazing. You should check out the video on YouTube of how Bono and Roy Orbison wrote the song together.... it really is amazing. Overall, this CD is a good one, including great songs like "California Blue", "The Comedians", and the famous "You Got It". Some of Roy Orbison's final works....
