Orbison Fan Favorites On Vinyl LP!
Featuring Lush New Arrangements From The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra!
Includes "Oh, Pretty Woman", "I Drove All Night" & More!


Album features soaring Orbison vocals with new Royal Philharmonic orchestral accompaniment, plus additional instrumentation by Roy's sons and grandson.

Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings in partnership with Roy’s Boys LLC releases A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This album infuses Orbison’s best original vocal performances, consisting of hits and fan favorites such as "Oh, Pretty Woman," "Crying"and "Only the Lonely," with the emotion and world class musicianship of the Royal Philharmonic, London’s most notable orchestra. In addition, Roy’s sons Wesley (guitar), Roy Jr. (guitar) and Alex (drums) provided instrumental backing on selected tracks, along with ten-month-old grandson Roy III (guitar, tambourine).

Alex Orbison, President of Roy’s Boys and the youngest of Roy Orbison’s sons, stated, "If ever there were a singer whose body of work benefits from a collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic it would be Roy Orbison. During the course of his career and after his passing it was constantly noted that his transcendent vocal ability made him something of an anomaly in the world of pop and rock and that, in another life, he would have taken the classical music/opera world by storm. ...we’ll all be able to experience that ‘life’ with the release of this project. It’s more than an album release, it’s the fulfillment of a prophecy in a very tangible way."

The material covered on A Love So Beautiful is vast, ranging from his early-mid '60s material on the Monument label where he hit his first commercial peak ("In Dreams," "Blue Angel," "Crying," "Dream Baby," "I’m Hurtin’," "It’s Over," "Mean Woman Blues," "Only the Lonely," "Oh, Pretty Woman," "Love Hurts," "Uptown") up to his comeback in the late '80s before his untimely passing ("You Got It," "I Drove All Night," "A Love So Beautiful").

A Love So Beautiful was produced by Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, who were also at the helm for the hugely successful albums If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestral component was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Studio 2, in London (every Beatles album from 1964 on), while Roy’s sons recorded their parts in Nashville at Black River Studios that was previously owned by their father.
