Roy Orbison – Crying

(2LP 180g 45RPM)

Roy Orbison – Crying

The second Roy Orbison album 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 honoured 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 song writing 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 centred 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 analogue tape.

Mastered by Bernie Grundman at 45 RPM, the four sides of dead-silent 180-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.

Analogue Productions

Analogue Productions It was in 1992 that Acoustic Sounds owner Chad Kassem reissued his first Analogue Productions title, Virgil Thompson's The Plow That Broke The Plains, originally on Vanguard. Analogue Productions began as a vehicle for Kassem to license his favorite all-time recordings and reissue them as remastered and as a superior version to the original release. Since its inception AP has reissued hundreds of titles, ranging from classical to folk, pop, rock, blues and jazz. Included in the many highlights of Analogue Productions' history are the Fantasy 45 Jazz Reissues, the Blue Note Reissues, and premium box sets of the music of such legendary acts as The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nat "King" Cole and Norah Jones. True to its name, Analogue Productions works with the original analogue master tapes - more than any other reissue label! The result is superior sound - richer, warmer and more lifelike, than digital.
