Description

Memphis on LP

Limited vinyl LP pressing of this album by the rock icon. This re-issue is fully remixed and remastered to return the audio to it's original glory. Package includes fully restored original artwork. Memphis was originally released in November of 1972. This is the eleventh album from The MGM Years. Roy Orbison runs the gamut on this album from the hard rocking title track to the classic ballad 'Danny Boy,' and better renditions of each would be hard to find. The only single from this album, 'Memphis,' peaked at #84. Roy Orbison was best known for his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. His greatest success came with Monument Records between 1960 and 1964, when 22 of his songs placed on the Billboard Top 40. Orbison's vocal instrument bridged the gap between baritone and tenor, and music scholars have suggested that he had a three- or four-octave range. The combination of Orbison's powerful, impassioned voice and complex musical arrangements led many critics to refer to his music as operatic, giving him the sobriquet "the Caruso of Rock".
