Third record from Roy Orbison on Monument Records, recorded at its studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee and released in 1963. The album is named for the hit 45rpm single. In 2004 Rolling Stone named the song 'In Dreams' one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Half of the cuts were recorded during the sessions for 'Lonely and Blue'. Orbison's voice was never better than on this recording. The heights he reaches on 'Lonely Wine', the swaggering Country and R&B of 'Blue Avenue' and 'My Prayer' are simply mind-blowing. The emotion and deep atmospherics of the tunes here reflect Foster's sophistication, but also Orbison's willingness to develop himself as a singer and as a persona.
