Complements Brand New Documentary Mystery Girl Unraveled Detailing the Making of the Landmark Album
 
Featuring the Original Album Remastered Plus 9 Bonus Tracks including the Unreleased Song “The Way Is Love,” with Roy’s Three Sons & John Carter Cash

 

In 1989, an era where the charts were dominated by Guns N’ Roses and the New Kids on the Block, the commercial success of Roy Orbison and company was nothing short of impressive. Mystery Girl was a Top 5 hit on both sides of the Atlantic and earned Orbison his first platinum certification for over 1 million albums shipped. Tracks like “You Got It,��� a worldwide Top 10 hit, and “She’s a Mystery to Me,” penned by Bono and The Edge of U2, were some of the final standout performances from the master craftsman - one whose sudden passing at the age of 52, just two months before the album’s release, broke the hearts of millions.
 
Everyone involved with Mystery Girl sensed the magic in Orbison, who, in 1988, was enjoying a full creative renaissance and resurgence of popularity. One of Roy's classic recordings, "In Dreams," memorably lip-synched into a hurricane lamp by Dean Stockwell, had served as a key thematic element in David Lynch's Blue Velvet, igniting a renewed interest in the Big O. In a series of bold aesthetic moves, Orbison directly addressed his legacy, first with Class of '55 (a 1986 reunion album with fellow Sun Records alumni Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins) and then, In Dreams: The Greatest Hits, where Orbison recut many of his biggest songs, using 1980s technology to produce results often surpassing his original recordings.
 
At this same time, Orbison became a founding member of the Traveling Wilburys, the roots rock supergroup also featuring Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, and Tom Petty. It was during work with the Wilburys that the vision for Mystery Girl, a new Roy Orbison album made of original songs from a variety of writers - including Orbison himself, Diane Warren, Elvis Costello, Wesley Orbison and U2's Bono and the Edge (among others) - began taking shape.
 
Roy's core group of musicians on the original Mystery Girl recordings included Jeff Lynne (guitar, piano, bass, backing vocals), Tom Petty (acoustic guitar, backing vocals), Mike Campbell (guitar, bass, mandolin), Jim Keltner (drums), Howie Epstein (bass, backing vocals), and Benmont Tench (piano, organ, cheap strings). Contributing artists on the album include Barbara Orbison, Roy Orbison, Jr., Al Kooper, George Harrison, Bono, T Bone Burnett, Steve Cropper, The Memphis Horns, and more.
 
Mystery Girl: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition features the remastered original album on two 180-gram LPsand a download card for high-quality MP3s. It also includes nine stunning unreleased bonus tracks, including studio demos and the previously unheard song “The Way Is Love,” based on a long-lost demo featuring new instrumentation from Orbison’s children, Wesley, Roy Jr. and Alex, and John Carter Cash, son of Orbison’s longtime friend Johnny Cash. This release complements the brand new documentary Mystery Girl Unraveled, detailing the making of the landmark album.
