Customer Reviews

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!!

Roy's best

I find this album to be Roy's best. Jeff Lynne's production is impecable as always and the songs are all great. "You Got It" is a big hit, everyone knows. "She's a Mystery to Me" was composed by Bono and The Edge, from U2 and is a fantastic ballad. "The Comedians", despite being labeled "live version" sounds to me like the same studio cut from the original album, and it's a great song written by Elvis Costello. "(All I Can Do Is) Dream You" was inexplicably replaced by a live version here. "Windsurfer" features a great slide guitar, reminds me of George Harrison. "Careless Heart" is a beautiful song which used to close the album, but this iTunes release features a bonus 11th track. Highly recommended.

"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....

Biography

Born: April 23, 1936 in Vernon, TX

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s

Although he shared the same rockabilly roots as Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison went on to pioneer an entirely different brand of country/pop-based rock & roll in the early '60s. What he lacked in charisma and photogenic looks, Orbison made up for in spades with his quavering operatic voice and melodramatic narratives of unrequited love and yearning. In the process, he established rock & roll archetypes of the underdog and the hopelessly romantic loser. These were...
