This expanded edition of the classic album faithfully reproduces the album’s original artwork and the updated sleeve note make this reissue the definitive collection of Orbison’s years at Sun.

lthough Roy Orbison is best remembered these days for the dramatic angst-ridden ballads such as ‘It’s Over’, ‘Crying’ and ‘In Dreams’ which he recorded for the Monument label in the sixties, he first hit the spotlight in 1956 at Sun Records with his hit ‘Ooby Dooby’.

His album ‘At The Rock House’ was released by Sun in 1961and was a collection of twelve highlights from his recordings for the label. Bracing and exciting, these tracks all have a distinct edge to them and stand midway between the rock’n’roll sound of the time and the more lush and emotional sound he was to perfect in the next decade.

This this, the first release on cd for this great album, it has been generously expanded to include all his Sun singles, which feature versions which differed from the album ones, along with several undubbed versions. It is rounded off with a number of demos and other recordings which were unearthed from the Sun vaults and issued in later years.

This expanded edition of the classic album faithfully reproduces the album’s original artwork and the updated sleeve note make this reissue the definitive collection of Orbison’s years at Sun.

December 2008 was the 20th Anniversary of Roy Orbison’s death, an event which was extremely well-covered by the media. The BBC alone marked it with an hour-long TV documentary, whilst Mark Lamarr presented four weekly hour programs for Radio 2. Such coverage guarantees a re-kindling of interest in Roy’s work over the coming months.
