5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 'Big O', 3 Sep 2010
This review is from: Classic Roy Orbison, The/Cry Softly, Lonely One (Audio CD)
I'm very much a late 50s, early 60s fan as this era saw me in my mid/lateteens which most people would say is the most enjoyable of their lives. I'm principally an Elvis fan but if Elvis was the complete package the Big O was the unique package - in appearance, in operatic voice and in song composition. This value-for-money double album from 1966 and 1968- particularly the later 'Cry Softly Lonely One' harks back 8 or 10 years and is perhaps why

Roy was not so successful in this period as the youth world had then moved on.For a fan like me the beat ballads
and slow romantic songs are as good as or better than those in Roy's early years. Just let me make believe'has a unique (guitar)backing which complemets the powerful ballad of the kind with which Roy made his name, but there are several other tracks on this album that are 'up there'.'Here comes the rain baby 'is a very slow ballad that showcases Roys gentle side whilst at least a couple of other tracks are up-tempos reminiscent of his biggest hit 'Pretty Woman'.

For those who, like me, enjoy this time, these albums are a must. For others, they are perfect examples of a voice that was sadly overlooked and should be revisited -the quality of songs and delivery are no less than his biggest hits.Buy!
