The second Roy Orbison 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 honored 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 songwriting 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 centered 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 analog tape. Mastered by Bernie
Grundman at 45 RPM, the four sides of dead-silent 200-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
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. Hear
the Analogue Productions difference how great this familiar tune and its album
namesake can sound.
