Available on iTunes
From his 50s Memphis rockabilly start to his 1960s pop masterpieces and his 1980s comeback, Roy Orbison's recordings still rank today as some of American music's finest. Gifted with a soaring voice, the Texas-born singer-songwriter-guitarist wasted no time, he had his own radio show at age ten and formed his first rock 'n' roll band, The Teen Kings, in 1955. Recording at Sam Phillips legendary Sun Studios alongside Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, Orbison was still seeking his ideal sound and after parting ways with Sun, finally found it, with 1960's ""Only The Lonely."" Orbison's creativity gave birth to a unique pop-rock style that resulted in a series of masterpieces and made him an international star. By 1988, Orbison was enjoying a comeback: topping the charts; but ultimately, death claimed him too soon. In Dreams, which marks this legend's 70th Anniversary, is a 90-minute documentary that charts the trajectory of his career and includes interviews with Roy as well as many of his admirers.
