Description

A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra infuses The Big O's best original vocal performances with the emotion and world class musicianship of the Royal Philharmonic. In addition, Roy's sons Wesley (guitar), Roy Jr. (guitar) and Alex (drums) provided instrumental backing on selected tracks. The material covered is vast, ranging from his early-mid 60s material on Monument where he hit his first commercial peak ("In Dreams," "Blue Angel," "Crying," "Dream Baby," "I'm Hurtin'," "It's Over," "Mean Woman Blues," "Only the Lonely," "Oh, Pretty Woman," "Love Hurts," "Uptown") up to his comeback in the late-80s ("You Got It," "I Drove All Night," "A Love So Beautiful").

A Love So Beautiful was produced by Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, who were also at the helm for the hugely successful albums If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestral component was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Studio 2, in London while Roy's sons recorded their parts in Nashville at Black River Studios which was previously owned by their father.

Alex, the youngest of Roy Orbison's sons, stated, "If ever there were a singer whose body of work benefits from a collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic it would be Roy Orbison. During the course of his career and after his passing it was constantly noted that his transcendent vocal ability made him something of an anomaly in the world of pop and rock and that, in another life, he would have taken the classical music/opera world by storm. Soon, we'll all be able to experience that 'life' with the release of this project. It's more than an album release, it's the fulfillment of a prophecy in a very tangible way."
