Roy Orbison - Mystery Girl - 2x LP
The discography of Roy Orbison (1936-1988) - which yielded some of the most heartfelt, passionate classics of the rock 'n' roll era - shined even brighter with the release of Mystery Girl, the last album Orbison recorded, in 1989. Now, a brand-new version of this star-studded classic further amplifies the beauty of Roy's final work.
The commercial success of Mystery Girl was nothing short of impressive: the album was a Top 5 hit, eventually earning Orbison his first platinum award for over 1 million sales, and featured the worldwide Top 10 smash You Got It. MYSTERY GIRL DELUXE 25th anniversary edition is packed with stunning extras. The original album is appended by nine unreleased bonus audio tracks, including studio demos and the previously unheard song The Way Is Love, based on a long-lost demo featuring new instrumentation from Orbison's children, Wesley, Roy Jr. and Alex, and John Carter Cash, son of Orbison's longtime friend Johnny Cash. The accompanying DVD features a new hour-long documentary on the making of the album, Mystery Girl: Unraveled, executive produced by Roy's sons. The documentary features new interviews with those behind the album including Steve Cropper, Tom Petty, Mick Campbell and Jeff Lynne. In addition to the documentary, the DVD includes eight wonderful music videos, including an unreleased alternate video for "She's a Mystery to Me" and three new videos for "The Way Is Love", "You Got It" and "California Blue."
