Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Irv Litchman.

Roy Orbison came back for a third MGM album in 1966 and delivered Classic Roy, which was probably the best album be ever did for the label. Every song was cast in a familiar, classic Orbison vein, without any of the country piano sounds that showed a digression on recent releases, and most of it -- especially "Just Another Name for Rock and Roll" -- had a beat that was still highly appealing in mid-1966. Working more thoroughly within a band setting here, this is stripped-down, back-to-basics Orbison, maybe only lacking a hit single of the same obvious proportions as those Monument albums. Classic Roy was reissued in 2008 on Sony/BMG. ~ Bruce Eder & Al Campbell
