On this day in 1966 Roy Orbison was in the studio recording songs for the #MGMYears Fastest Guitar Alive soundtrack! He recorded “BEST FRIEND” and wrapped things up for the year with “HEADING SOUTH.”
Here’s the trailer for Roy’s feature film debut, The Fastest Guitar Alive –
“THERE WON’T BE MANY COMING HOME” by Roy Orbison
from The Fastest Guitar Alive Soundtrack, one of the 13 albums in the #MGMYears Box Set. “THERE WON’T BE MANY COMING HOME” is to be featured on the soundtrack of the new Quentin Tarantino film, The Hateful Eight!
The Fastest Guitar Alive, Roy Orbison’s feature film debut, premiered on this day in 1967!
This film was supposed to be the first of several starring roles for Roy according to his contract with MGM, but alas this is only movie that was made during the #MGMYears.

“Cry Softly Lonely One/Pistolero” Single
The UK counterpart to MGM during Roy Orbison’s #MGMYears was London-Decca. Here is a photo of the 7″ single from London Records for “Cry Softly Lonely One” and “Pistolero.” These two could be considered a funny pairing, as they appeared on different albums- CRY SOFTLY LONELY ONE & THE FASTEST GUITAR ALIVE SOUNDTRACK.
