Roy Orbison was a rock and roll music pioneer. Born during the Great Depression, Roy was always involved with music from when his parents gave him his first guitar as a young child. While growing up in Texas, Roy formed several rockabilly bands and trucked to Memphis and was soon discovered along with folks like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash by Sun Records owner Sam Phillips. HIs initial hit single Oooby Dooby would become the catalyst that would kickstart the soon to be worldwide superstar sound of Roy Orbison. After several more recordings with Sun, Roy was soon writing hit songs for folks like The Everly Brothers and before you knew it, Monument Records signed the artist and he hit the top of the charts with songs like Only The Lonely and Oh! Pretty Woman and he never looked back! From the next several decades, Roy Orbison would release many hit singles and albums on various labels, and even starred in feature films with MGM. As the seventies were ending, Roy moved over to Asylum Records and released his 1979 masterwork Laminar Flow, which would unfortunately be the last studio album of new solo material that he would release in his short lifetime. Featuring eleven of his finest later career performances Laminar Flow will forever been known for his wonderful tribute to his late friend Elvis Presley with his stunning ballad Hound Dog Man. In addition to this brilliant tune, more Roy Orbison favorites like his two singles the soulful Easy Way Out and country rock flavored Poor Baby which features his sorely missed amazing falsetto voice make this album one of the more important titles in his extensive catalog of recordings. Laminar Flow has been out print now for quite some time...that is until now......
