Roy Orbison Crying'
CryingDouble LP Cut At 45 RPM
Mastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Tape
200-Gram LPs Plated And Pressed By Quality Record Pressings
Old-Style Tip-On Heavyweight Gatefold Jacket By Stoughton Printing
"Crying" No. 69 On Rolling Stone's List Of 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time
The second Roy Orbison issued by the Monument label,
Crying was originally released in 1962 and became Orbison's
chart breakthrough, reaching No. 21 on the Billboard chart
and No. 17 in the U.K. The album name comes from the 1961
hit song of the same name that in 2002 was honored with a
Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
By 1962, Roy Orbison had established himself as one the
leading lights out of Nashville. Still, it wasn't until he met
songwriting partner Joe Melson that things began to fall into
place for Roy. He moved to Monument Records in 1960 -
the focus in the studio was centered around exploiting the
quality and range of his voice. Soon Orbison and Melson
penned the hits "Only The Lonely" and "Running Scared."
Orbison had arrived.
The focus on this Analogue Productions reissue of Crying
was extracting the absolute highest-quality sound from the
original analog tape. Mastered by Bernie Grundman at 45
RPM, the four sides of dead-silent 200-gram vinyl pressed
at Quality Record Pressings provide reduced distortion and
High-frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your
stereo cartridge track more accurately. The heavyweight
gatefold tip-on jacket from Stoughton Printing cradles the
LPs in style.
The Orbison-Melson penned title track zoomed to No. 2
on the Billboard charts. "Crying" is a slow-burning lament,
allowing Roy's voice to come shining through, accompanied
by strings, soulful vocals, and a dynamically great vocal
hook. Hear the Analogue Productions difference how great
this familiar tune and its album namesake can sound.

Undivided Heart & SoulUndivided Heart & Soul, produced by Dan Molad (Lucius) and
McPherson, and developed largely in the studio (that studio being the historic
RCA Studio B in Nashville), carries a sense of immediacy and irreverence.
"In writing this record, I threw several handfuls of caution to the wind.
Lyrically, I was allowing myself to be exposed in a way I never have before.
Concurrently, maybe as some sort of a self-defense mechanism, the guitars
got fuzzier and louder. The first day at RCA was like being in church...
by the second day, it was a high school band's rehearsal space."
Putting the hands of Dan Molad on the wheel of the record ensured that
the music didn't take too many expected turns. "Having toured with
Lucius and befriended Dan, I knew he was the guy to push my buttons
and challenge me to try new things. He's a tireless worker. He's constantly
tinkering away on something... and music just falls out of him."
The vintage recording equipment and instruments still housed
in RCA Studio B greatly informed the direction of the record. "Each night,
at the end of tracking, someone would invariably say, 'You wanna put vibes
on this?', speaking of the old RCA Vibraphone. I mean, you can hear THAT
vibraphone on Roy Orbison's 'Crying'... we couldn't keep our hands off of it.
It guided some of the songs into some strange and wonderful places.
'Lucky Penny' took such a cool turn once Ray (Jacildo, keys) added some to it.
We wrote several songs on the piano that Floyd Cramer played 'Last
Date' on. We were soaking up so much of the phantom energy in
that room, it led to some incredible sonic territory."
"Most folks know us for our take on vintage R&B and early Rock N' Roll.
The past year, I've been digging so much into the heavier, brasher sounds of
early Rock N' Roll... from bands like The Sonics, Link Wray, and into some
early British Rock such as The Creation... these influences feature heavily in
these songs. The tunes that showed up weren't exactly always in familiar
territory, and... we greeted them as welcome strangers. They have a lot
of heart... and that's what Rock N' Roll should always have."1. Desperate Love

The Monument Singles CollectionImport
Roy Orbison is often credited with having one of the most powerful voices in Rock 'n Roll.
He certainly had one of the most distinctive ones; yet his operatic quavering and impressive range were used to portray a quiet and desperate vulnerability that was foreign to most of his rebelling, sex, drugs & rock'n'roll contemporaries.
This vulnerability is probably why he was so very popular in the '60s, and why after a dip of almost twenty years he could easily reclaim his prominence in the '80s. When David Lynch (in)famously used his song 'In Dreams' in Blue Velvet the public - and Roy himself - learned that there was a different side to his sultryness, and interest in his music was renewed. To celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday Music On Vinyl is releasing The Monument Singles Collection, with amongst others "Only The Lonely", "Crying", and of course "Pretty Woman".

In Dreams (MONO) (Out Of Stock)This third Orbison release came on the heals of Lonley and Blue and
Crying and includes the hits Blue Bayou and All I have to do is Dream.
This Bill Porter recording directly onto two track stereo offers two
perspectives - mono from a fold of the discreetly recorded stereo channels
and a stereo presentation directly from the master. Porter intended the
recording to be presented in Mono and as such recorded the stereo channels
discreetly so that the blend in combining (mixing) the two tracks makes for
a perfectly layered musical presentation which supports Orbison's
astonishing vocal exquisitely. This is a must have record from the original
2 track master tape mixed into mono and cut on Classic's pure Mono
(horizontal cutting only) all tube cutting system by Bernie Grundman.
