Review of "Golden Days - Roy Orbison"
I strive to give informative, honest and well written reviews from my own experiences.
Surely the world's greatest ever Tenor, Roy Kelton Orbison was born in Vernon, Texas in 1936 and sadly passed away at the age of 52 having suffered a heart attack.As a singer-songwriter and very gifted guitarist his musical legacy can not be underestimated.
This 20 track album (all on 1 CD) is mainly an album of heartfelt powerful ballads with some Rock ‘n Roll style songs thrown in.. The album does not include "You Got It", "Ooby Dooby" and "I Drove All Night" but it does include the stunningly brilliant tracks "Running Scared", “Love Hurts” "Crying", “Blue Bayou”, "Only The Lonely" and "In Dreams".His style is in effect an incredible marriage between operatic tenor and drum, base and guitar band which I can not think of any equivalent example of in music history. He had an exceptional two and a half octave range voice and a year and a half after his death was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
A flimsy 2 page album sleeve doesn't do justice to what is on the CD and is an unfortunate lapse by the makers of this compilation.The album has no weak links so can be played right through without the use of the skip button.
