The classic Roy Orbison was originally released in July of 1966. Perhaps inappropriately named, this, the third album from Roy Orbison's MGM Years, is anything but typical. Orbison breaks all convention with these 12 songs holding steadfastly to his own artistry. 'Pantomime' is best described as epic, and notably, the single 'Twinkle Toes' charted at #13.. Roy Orbison was best known for his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. His greatest success came with Monument Records between 1960 and 1964, when 22 of his songs placed on the Billboard Top 40. Orbison's vocal instrument bridged the gap between baritone and tenor, and music scholars have suggested that he had a three- or four-octave range. The combination of Orbison's powerful, impassioned voice and complex musical arrangements led many critics to refer to his music as operatic, giving him the sobriquet "the Caruso of Rock".
