ONE OF THE LONELY ONES is the newly discovered, never-before-heard, 1969 Roy Orbison album that has never been released until now! Recorded primarily between January and August of 1969 this album is an honest account, arguably more so than any other, of Roy Orbison’s life. Roy Orbison had endured two devastating losses- first, the loss of his beautiful young wife, Claudette, in 1966, and second, the tragic loss of his two young sons in September of 1968. The real-life account in the title track, ‘I’m sick and tired, uninspired/I’d rather be dead and done/Than to be what I’ve become/One of the Lonely Ones,’ comes from a place of honesty that all listeners can relate to. ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ is the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic that charted for Britain’s Gerry & the Pacemakers in 1965. The guitar-heavy ‘Child Woman, Woman Child’ can be considered the musical younger sister of ‘Oh, Pretty Woman.’ This album is mixed and expertly mastered by Grammy winning engineers. Package features new, period appropriate artwork.
