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. --Tom Lanham

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.
