Roy Orbison ~ Mystery Girl: Unraveled Documentary Trailer

Mystery Girl: Unraveled, the recently released documentary about the making of Roy Orbison’s last album looks super interesting and I am looking forward to seeing it. The film, produced and directed by three of his sons, Wesley, Roy, and Alex, features rare footage of the recording sessions and interviews with Tom Petty, Bono, Jeff Lynne, and many more.

Orbison’s life was rife with personal tragedy, namely the death of his two oldest sons when his home burned to the ground, and so many of his ballads reflect the pain and loss that he experienced during his lifetime. Dreams are also recurring themes in his music, but no matter what the story, his songs are amongst the most beautifully written in the history of popular music.

Sweet, sweet song from Mystery Girl ~

  • Roy was one of the best…love his music…love, love his music…C2 for those who spent their youth in Gloucester…would be curious to see the comments as to what it meant…again C2…

    • Hoping to hear, but if not Toby, I hope you’ll clue us in.

      • I realize that many do not keep our early to bed, early to rise schedule…was hoping to hear from someone re: C2…well, here is the answer: where David Cox’ wonderful little shop is, there was Nick’s Pool Room…it was a wonderful place to spend time and make friendships…Mike Patil, one of the founders of Timberline, spent time there…Phil Mazzeo, who just closed his hair salon on Center Street, was one of the best shooters…I could go on and on…it was a place where you learned to mature and to respect others…It was run by the Danikas family, Artie, now in his 80’s, walks Essex Ave and Good Harbor Beach every day…and his son Capt. Nick is co-owner of the Hurricane II, the whale watch boat…anyway, I have gotten off track here, C2 was the number on the Juke Box for “It’s Over”, that great tune by Roy…and when you were about to finish off your opponent in a game one would often say “C2″…to this day when I am watching sports and one team has clearly claimed the upper hand I often say “C2″, although I don’t think many around me understand…

  • Kim hit it on the spot lots os music and finding or Found a way out of all the pain from within through music defines character. Music tells stories based on real life like the pictures – I know someone just like that but not quite as much loss! Thanks :-) Dave& Kim:-)
