180 Gram vinyl reissue. Best known for his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads, Roy Orbison is one of the few American artists to score significant British success during the 'beat boom' of 1963-5. This is the second album released by Roy Orbison in 1962. It was also his second album on the Monument record label. The album name comes from the 1961 hit song of the same name that in 2002 was honored with a Grammy Hall of Fame Award. In 2004, the song ranked number 69 on Rolling Stone Magazine's '500 Greatest Songs of All Time'. The album features nearly all original material by Orbison and some of the writers who frequently tailored songs for him, such as Felice Bryant and Joe Melson. The trademark early Orbison production flourishes, with swooping strings and full vocal choruses, are also present.
