4.0 out of 5 stars Third Monument LP of hits and album tracks October 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Orbison's third album for Monument is stamped from the same pattern as his first two, with a pair of seminal hits surrounded by lesser album material. This time out, though, there's substantially less original material. The hits include the title tune's ultra-crescendo ending, and the more sedate (but no less anguished) "Blue Bayou."

The covers include The Orioles' "Lonely Wine" and The Everly Brothers' "All I Have to do is Dream," and stepping a bit further out, Johnny Mercer's "Dream" and Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer," the latter two finding resonance in Orbison's emotional croon. Cindy Walker's "Shahdaroba" has a mystery-tinged Eastern sound and the Pockriss/Tobias weeper "House Without Windows" is another good fit. Orbison contributes two more songs, including the beat-heavy "Sunset" and the femme fatale story "(They Call You) Gigolette."

This reissue adds four bonus tracks to the original dozen, including the top-40 "Falling," its Cindy Walker B-side "Distant Drums," a rockin' top-5 cover of "Mean Woman Blues," and a top-20 cover of Willie Nelson's "Pretty Paper." The latter is this reissue's biggest treat, as it's always been overshadowed on oldies radio by Orbison's more melodramatic singles. Sound quality is top-notch stereo, and the booklet reproduces both the front and back cover. Though the album tracks don't measure up to the hits, there are some interesting choices here for anyone who wants to go deeper than the standard anthologies.

Product note: track #4 is "No One Will Ever Know," not "Blue Avenue," as listed. The latter track appears on Orbison's "Sings Lonely and Blue" LP and CD reissue. [©2006 hyperbolium dot com]

By Hugo
Format:Audio CD
A very HUGE 'THANK YOU' to BARBARA ORBISON for making a few of our beloved ROY's classic Monument Records albums available on Cd to us newer fans as well as his legions of long time fans. First, the erroneously listed gorgeous midtempo ballad, "BLUE AVENUE" does not appear anywhere on the "IN DREAMS" Legacy remastered Cd album reissue - it actually appears as track #4 on Roy's "LONELY And BLUE" Cd reissue. However, all is not lost, as Roy's heartfelt & majestic, "NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW" is actually track #4. [B/t/w, WHY was this song not a huge hit single?] "IN DREAMS" remains one of Orbison's most perfectly executed albums, with his signature dreamy ballads and impeccable vocals standing out and sweeping the listener away into a bluesy Pop dreamland. Mr. Orbison remains one of the greatest pop singers ever to have graced a vinyl platter with his bewitching vocal instrument. You can't help but be drawn and swept into his musical mini-dramas and unique operatic like vocal stylings - he simply pulls the right heart strings, hits every sensitive nerve and ultimate emotions in all of us with such ease. Whether he sings one of his many originals, "cover" songs, or his personally stamped rollicking fun and solidly rampaging rockers, Roy Orbison delivers consistently. Thanks to Barbara Orbison's desire to keep her husband's golden recording legacy and memory alive through ongoing PBS documentaries and concert performances, many legions of new fans will be gained for generations to come. Her awareness that her husband was a very specially gifted musician and ongoing worldwide public fascination with her husband's musical legacy is a benefit and quite pleasing to us all. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Monument album for Roy May 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Although Roy Orbison made some great rock'n'roll recordings on the Sun label, his career only really became significant after he joined Monument. On that label, he was considered mainly a singles artist, but for those who want more of his music than just the hits, he recorded a few albums too. He mixed some but not all of his hits with other original songs plus cover versions of country and rock'n'roll songs. This particular album was his third for Monument and the 2006 re-mastered version includes four bonus tracks, all recorded during the sessions in which Roy recorded the tracks that appeared on the original album.

Including the bonus tracks, this set contains both sides of four singles. The first single was the title track, which became a top ten hit in Britain and America, with Shadaroba as the B-side. Next came Falling, a British top ten hit that just missed the top twenty in America, which had Distant drums on its B-side. That song provided Jim Reeves with a posthumous British number one hit in 1966. Mean woman blues (a cover of a song previously recorded by Elvis Presley) provided Roy with an American top five hit, with its B-side, Blue bayou, charting separately and making the top thirty. In Britain, the same single was released as a double-A side, becoming a top three hit with Blue bayou as the first-named track. Linda Ronstadt's cover of Blue bayou became an American top three hit in 1977.

The fourth single included here was a Christmas release. The A-side was a cover of Pretty paper, written and first recorded by Willie Nelson. He was just starting to get noticed in country music circles, but only in the mid-seventies did he become a major star in his own right.
