Roy Orbison Mystery Girl Deluxe OUT NOW

Tue May 20, 2014 3:04 am

Undoubtedly Roy Orbison's best album reissued with a treasure trove of bonus tracks and a documentary + never before seen music videos. After all these years finally Roy Orbison fans have for the first time something close to an FTD Classic Album. Looks fantastic. Anyone else going to get it or already got it?

I received an advance copy a few weeks ago and then last week was sent a finished copy. I was also fortunate to interview Alex Orbison recently and my review and interview will appear on my blog in the next few days - http://peterlewryblog.weebly.com

Seems to be doing very well in the USA. Number 13 in Amazon.com's CD charts. Not doing so well in the UK; only at 93. (The advertising for it in the UK has been poor with very few newspaper articles)

Some of Roy Orbsions best work was in the last few years of his life. Elvis What Happened?

Roy had always been a singles artist prior to 1988. While he made so many excellent songs, especially in the 60s, none of the albums were amazing. The albums were good but not amazing and never did very well in the charts. Mystery Girl was the only amazing album he made. A fitting farewell.

I think we can safely say that Elvis has an overall far more impressive catalog of recordings.

Now, if were talking Orbison v Springsteen, then yes, the Big O wins hands down.

Just ordered it, can't wait to get my copy. When I purchased the album in 1989, I played it to death.

My "favourite" would still look like this (with no big changes):

1. You Got It
2. California Blue
3. She's A Mystery To Me
4. (All I Can Do Is) Dream You
5. A Love So Beautiful
6. The Comedians
7. Windsurfer
8. The Only One
9. In The Real World
10. Careless Heart

One of my favorite albums that I bought when it first came out and played it a lot. Roy was in fine voice and the songs were terrific. This new edition is great. Nice documentries on the DVD and improved sound on the remastered album. Amazing to see the videos of the recording sessions held in a dirty garage filled with junk. The music sounded great thou.

Received it last saturday, listened to it and watched it in its entirety. Wonderful stuff! I just couldn't help but wonder why "The Comedians" wasn't included in the "Mystery Girl: Unraveled" documentary (except for the short bars at the intro)... any idea or infos about this? Maybe copyright reasons or issues with Costello?
