The discography of Roy Orbison (1936-1988) - which yielded some of the most heartfelt, passionate classics of the rock 'n' roll era - shined even brighter with the release of Mystery Girl, the last album Orbison recorded, in 1989. Now, a brand-new version of this star-studded classic further amplifies the beauty of Roy's final work.
The commercial success of Mystery Girl was nothing short of impressive: the album was a Top 5 hit, eventually earning Orbison his first platinum award for over 1 million sales, and featured the worldwide Top 10 smash You Got It. MYSTERY GIRL DELUXE 25th anniversary edition is packed with stunning extras. The original album is appended by nine unreleased bonus audio tracks, including studio demos and the previously unheard song The Way Is Love, based on a long-lost demo featuring new instrumentation from Orbison's children, Wesley, Roy Jr. and Alex, and John Carter Cash, son of Orbison's longtime friend Johnny Cash. The accompanying DVD features a new hour-long documentary on the making of the album, Mystery Girl: Unraveled, executive produced by Roy's sons. The documentary features new interviews with those behind the album including Steve Cropper, Tom Petty, Mick Campbell and Jeff Lynne. In addition to the documentary, the DVD includes eight wonderful music videos, including an unreleased alternate video for "She's a Mystery to Me" and three new videos for "The Way Is Love", "You Got It" and "California Blue."

Friends, if you get one release of Roys, this is the one, there is so much love and respect in this project from the sons of Roys.
Not only do we get the old tracks remastered which you hear instantly from the first note, to all the new demos and tracks.
The highlight of the project is "The Way Is Love" which is a new track they found, and added their vocals and instruments which became a top notch tune.
Get it friends, you wont be sorry!!!
We started with the DVD, savoring the excellent commentary from 'Roy's Boys - who now run Orbison productions since the passing of their mother/Roy's wife, Barbara- and others including the aforementioned artists. This disc, alone, is 'worth the price of admission.' There's not weak song in the bunch. Each song has a story and most of the writers are here to tell what it was like working with Roy Orbison on his greatest album, only months before he passed.Much of the writing and work took place in or near Roy's home in Malibu, California, overlooking the Pacific Ocean ,which contributed to the heavenly sounds
The only bad thing is Roy's gone.
You can't really tell the difference between that and a studio production either. The documentary and the videos complement things so well.
