Pretty woman, walking down the street. Pretty woman, the kind I’d like to meet.
We all know and love his music from a mile away. From that
spine-tingling voice to those glasses, Roy Orbison was a true superstar.
No one else has ever quite known their way around a melody like he did.
But it’s a rather sad fact that Roy never got to see the smash-hit success of his album Mystery Girl.
Released in the weeks following Orbison’s death, Mystery Girl
was one of his most highly-acclaimed albums ever. Rolling Stone
’s Michael Azerrad wrote that it “encapsulates everything that made Orbison great,” and “there are ten songs and six producers on this record, but the sound is miraculously unified.”
This expanded edition of the original has been worked upon by friends and family alike, and even goes so far as to include unreleased demos and even a brand new song, The Way Is Love.
Bringing Roy’s career full-circle, this symbolic album deserves a place on every fan’s shelf.
