In Dreams (1987)

One of the oddest and most beautiful songs ever written. Look out for Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits and T-Bone Burnett backing Orbison on this 1987 live recording.

February 23rd, 2010.

    Alas poor Roy, he’d have been bigger than Elvis if he wasn’t so damned ugly…

    I’ve heard that said. Apparently, he was the only artist in those days whose face wasn’t on the cover of his own records. They’d put it on the flipside and print the lyris over it and he still looked hideous.

    What a voice tho.

    Not so. Roy in his teen idol days…

    I don’t see Tom Wait

    That’s because he does all his Waiting in the privacy of his own home.
