For many their knowledge of Roy Orbison begins and ends with his 'big' hits from the early 1960's (Only the Lonely, Crying, and Oh Pretty Woman to name a few). But by 1965 the man with the 3-octave voice and the dark sunglasses moved to the MGM label.

While musical styles and tastes changed around him, Orbison continued to record his style of music, marked by big ballads and his operatic voice. At the time this combined with personal and professional turmoil lead to a decline in Orbison's career. As a result these MGM albums, which represents a huge chunk of Orbison's recordings, have been unavailable since their initial release.

For the casual Roy Orbison fan these albums being released on CD is nothing short than a breathtaking opportunity.

The three albums presented here, Roy Orbison Sings, Memphis, and Milestones represents the last albums Orbison would record for the MGM label. Despite how poorly they were received at the time these albums do showcase some incredible songs, amazing vocals, and an artist who was maturing and willing to take some chances.

Now, no longer competing against the pop sounds of the late 60's and early 70's this body of work can be appreciated on its own.

Song "What About Me"
You're happy now yes it's plain to see
You're not concerned with your old used-to-be
You've got no heartaches or misery
You're happy I see, what about me?

You pass me by with your head up high
You've no regrets since we said goodbye
You could at least show some sympathy
You're happy I see, what about me?

What about me? What about me?
I live with the promises you didn't keep.
What about me? What about me?
Those sweet words you said were just words to deceive.

One day you'll find your love untrue
You'll feel the same way I feel about you
You could at least show some sympathy
You're happy I see.what about me? Video: ( O ) / Orbison, Roy

POP MUSIC'S `SUPERGROUPS' (San Jose Mercury News)
Pop music has had lots of big names who've taken breaks from their regular gigs to join forces with other big names. The happy results are music's ``supergroups.'' Here's a select history of notable supergroups:
Hunk of burning love (The San Luis Obispo Tribune)
An hour before dress rehearsal, Cayce Clayton is sitting outside the San Luis Obispo Little Theater, gently brushing the black peach fuzz that is growing along his upper jaw line.
A proud past comes tumbling back (The News-Press)
One day in May 1995, Bernice Walker stood on Edwards Drive, across the street from the Fort Myers Exhibition Hall, and took a picture.
Bandiera the bandleader (Asbury Park Press)
The idea, it seems, was to avoid wearing costumes and wigs. The two-year-old ensemble known as the Jersey Shore Rock-N-Soul Revue ? a "tribute" band made up of Shore musicians led by guitarist Bobby Bandiera ? is the brainchild of Numa Saisselin, CEO of the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank (where the revue performs). "I was ruminating on the success of Elvis imitators and 'Rat Pack' imitators," ...
Out & About (The Salt Lake Tribune)
Show of the week I could easily rave about Patty Larkin's wicked wit and the ease with which she delivers a clever twist of phrase in the songs spanning her 20-year folk-pop career. And I could tell you to check out her show based solely on her vocal prowess. But this time, allow me to hail the singer/songwriter for her wickedly sly guitar skills.
Love me tender (Durango Herald)
The King strode into Ken & Sue's restaurant shortly after 1 p.m. as Valentine's Day diners were moving on to champagne. He plugged in his portable music player, shook his hips and launched into "Burning Love."

Songs for getting over a heartbreak (Potomac News)
It was the perfect relationship. Everything was going great. You were in love. Then, came "The Talk." Now it's over and you're alone on Valentine's Day. Your lover is with someone else, and you can't move on.
