Editors’ Notes Roy Orbison's shuddering vocal range and darkly emotional balladry embedded itself immediately in the musical firmament, surfacing in the reverb-dosed twang of The Beatles' “Please Please Me,” in ‘70s power ballads like Harry Nilsson's “Without You,” and in ‘80s offerings such as Cheap Trick's “The Flame.” Orbison's slow-burn brooding hovers over Chris Isaak's 1989 hit “Wicked Game,” and even creeps into the new millennium via Nicole Atkins and Eliza Rickman.
