Roy Orbison back from beyond the grave

Orbison’s career resurgance started with the use of his song In Dreams on the soundtrack for David Lynch’s Blue Velvet and continued with the Black and White Night live concert [see video below] and The Traveling Wilbury’s, Volume 1, his fictional group with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, George Harrison and Jeff Lynne. 

Mystery Girl was completed in 1988 but Roy never saw it released. The album went to number 5 in the U.S. and number 1 in Australia, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

The [NEW] Deluxe version of Mystery Girl will be a CD/DVD set with the ten original tracks plus nine previously unreleased studio and work-tape demos including The Way Is Love, featuring a newly restored Roy Orbison vocal track layered with contemporary guitar, drum and vocal accompaniment by Roy’s three sons (Roy Jr., Alex and Wesley).

The DVD includes Mystery Girl: Unraveled, a new one-hour documentary chronicling the song-by-song creation of Mystery Girl through rare and intimate archival footage and the memories of those who were there.
