Roy Orbison - Mystery Girl RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Tom Lanham

Tragedy of tragedies: Sun Records legend Roy Orbison passed away only a few weeks after issuing this sunny comeback in 1989. Rescued from the oldies also-ran circuit by his membership in the Traveling Wilburys--alongside fellow legends Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, and ELO's Jeff Lynne--the Wayfaring One implemented these stellar pals and others on Mystery Girl and even allowed his son to compose some lyrics for him. Wonder of wonders: his angelic tenor rang true on every track and set the stage for what might've been a huge pop-culture renaissance. No need to fret about the "if only"s. One spin through the radio-chummy "You Got It," and the "Pretty Woman" legacy is crystal clear. We're lucky he was able to record it.

"Mystery Girl is my ALL TIME favorite! My step-daughter was living in Greenwich Village, working for a recordinfg company in the city. She sent this to me for my Birthday. Several years ago, a friend and I visited NYC, stayed at her apt. at One Christor. Wonderful accomodations! We played Mystery Girl over and over! Just played it again!"
