“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.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
