2015 Remaster in Recognition of the 50th Anniversary of Orbison's Signing to the MGM Label!

2015 marks a historic 50-year milestone for music legend Roy Orbison. On July 1, 1965, The Big O left Monument Records and signed with MGM Records, going on to release 11 studio albums, a film soundtrack and 27 singles over the course of the following eight years, and at the same time scoring another 11 worldwide Top 40 hits. In recognition of this golden anniversary of Orbison's signing of one of the most lucrative and groundbreaking record deals of the era, Universal is releasing the all encompassing MGM Years box set and reissuing his output for the label in remastered stand alone 180g vinyl versions.

Roy's signing with MGM gave him a newfound musical freedom that can be heard throughout his tenure with the label. A fine example is Hank Williams The Roy Orbison Way which was originally released in August of 1970. The album includes a rocking version of "Hey Good Lookin" with an arrangement that has horns following the bass line and actually starts off with loud dirty guitar while Roy's take on "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love With You)" is best described as uber-loungy. Starting with a slamming tom-tom drumbeat the trance-like "Kaw-Liga" diverts from the norm here and is mean in the verses and honest in the choruses. This re-issue is fully remixed and remastered to return the audio to its original glory. Package also includes fully restored original artwork.
