Lonely And Blue is Roy Orbison's first album, released in 1961. The album was not only a breakthrough for Orbison as his debut LP, but also for rock 'n' roll. Up to that point, apart from Elvis Presley — who was in a class by himself — few white rock 'n' rollers had even tried to make as bold a use of the LP as what we hear on this record. Lonely And Blue is a huge canvas for a sound that combined rock 'n' roll's beat, Nashville's sound, and the singer's unique multi-octave range and intensity. The single "Only The Lonely" is perhaps the most accessible and commercial side of this new sound, but the whole album is packed with great moments.
