Biography

Biographyby Richie Unterberger

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 ... Read more in Amazon's Roy Orbison Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A final, precious gift from Roy to his fans 13 Jun 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I will never forget waking up one early December day in 1988 and finding out that Roy Orbison had died suddenly and unexpectedly shortly after performing in concert the night before. I, along with a legion of long-time fans, grieved the loss of this incredible singer and performer. Initially, his death at that particular time in his career seemed terribly unfair. After stagnating during the 1970s and early 1980s, Orbison was back and perhaps even better than ever in 1988. His collaboration with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, George Harrison, and Jeff Lynne in the form of The Traveling Wilburys had put him back in the national spotlight, and many of us longed for the new album soon to be released, an album we had heard nothing but incredibly good things about. Then, suddenly, he and the voice that touched our hearts for so many years, was gone. We, the fans, should have been rewarding Roy Orbison for all of the memories he gave us in song, yet, ever the selfless and humble man he was, Orbison actually presented all of us with a final, precious gift in the form of the album Mystery Girl. Roy’s widow Barbara deserves our heartfelt thanks for bravely putting the finishing touches on this album after her husband’s death.
Mystery Girl is simply an incredible album featuring a reenergized Roy Orbison easily uniting his unique voice to a modern sound that appealed to any number of ears; the released tracks from this album found ample playing time on both pop rock and country radio stations. Perhaps the first single, You Got It, got too much attention, as it was nearly played to death over the course of the first half of 1989, but that is just a tribute to the wonderful beauty and infectious beat and rhythm of this song co-written by Orbison and Wilbury buddies Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery Girl 13 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
One of the greatest singers the world has ever seen, Roy Orbison has remained unmatched for the sheer delivery of his songs. Even Elvis Presley commented that Orbison was "the greatest singer in the world", possibly the ultimate compliment from a man who had himself achieved so much. However following Roy's early successes in the sixties his carerer began to fade, mostly due to tragedies surrounding his own life. Some thought him finished, some thought him dated, but most recognised his sheer brilliance.
This album, Mystery Girl, which would prove to be the last that he would release, (though his wife did release 'King of Hearts' some time after his death) firmly establishes Orbison as being one of the greatest influences in Rock and Roll history. From the inspirational "You Got It", to the incredibly moving "A love so Beautiful" and of course to the nearly impossible notes of "Shes a mystery to Me", this album shows that the voice that established Roy Orbison in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not only survived well into the 80's, but that his voice further developed and had reached levels of near perfection. Certainly nobody past or presnt could sing these songs like Roy Orbison. This album compliments, perfectly, Roys earlier recording in the 60's from his major hits of 'Crying', 'Its over', 'Running Scared', 'Only the lonely', and the vastly underrated 'In Dreams'. In comparison to his earlier work brought up to date as seen in 1987 in 'A black and White Night', it is clear that 'Mystery Girl' deserves to stand alongside the legendary Orbison of the 60's. This album has everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best big O albums 18 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was Roy's comeback album released in 1989. Roy had been a big hit in the 50's and 60's but had to wait until the late eighties for the music world to come back to him. Unfortunatly he died in 1988. Mystery Girl includes without a doubt some of the best tracks Roy recorded, including A love so beautiful and In the real world. The Comedians was written by Elvis Costello and like many of Roy's songs tells the story of lost love. The title track, She's a mystery to me was written by Bono of U2 and is perfectly suited to Roy's voice. Bruce Springsteen was a big fan of Roy Orbison and once commented on wanting to sing like him. Listening to Mystery Girl it is easy to see why.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic eighties album 1 July 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Ultimately, most people remember Roy Orbison for his sixties classics, but his renaissance in the eighties should not be overlooked. He re-recorded many of his old hits during a legal dispute that prevented his old classics being re-issued (at one time there was a threat to destroy them). Roy also teamed up with George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty to form the Travelling Wilburys, a group that lasted for just one album. Finally, he recorded this solo album of original material. The album provides a great showcase for Roy's voice, appealing to Roy's traditional fans while gaining a new generation of fans who previously had shown little interest in his music.
The big hit from this album was, of course, You got it, a catchy up-tempo song that received plenty of airplay on radio stations across the world. It deserved all the success it got but there are other songs here that I regard as even better. While Roy was always good at up-tempo rocking songs (as he showed in the sixties with Oh pretty woman), he could do so much else. With classic ballads and mid-tempo songs such as California blue, She's a mystery to me, Careless heart, In the real world and A love so beautiful, this album maintains a high standard from start to finish.
Every Roy Orbison fan should own this album, which was his last and best album of original material. And if you're not already a Roy Orbison fan, this album may cause you to become one.
