The sweeping, ultra‐dramatic ballads that Roy Orbison rode to fame and fortune during the early 1960s stand in stark contrast to the rollicking rockabilly that he specialized in at Sun Records halfway through the previous decade.

Bear Family’s jam‐packed 10‐inch LP ‘A Cat Called Domino’ brings The Big O’s Sun catalogue back to the vinyl that it started out on. His ROY ORBISON THE CAT CALLED DOMINO RELEASE DATE: April 9, 2021 LABEL: Bear Family Records CATALOG #: BAF14015 FORMAT: 10”LP with booklet, plus bonus CD PRICE: £ 16.99 GENRE: Rock ‘n’ Roll, BARCODE: 5397102140150 1956 classics Ooby Dooby, Go! Go! Go!, You’re My Baby, and Rockhouse are joined by some real rarities: a version of Chicken‐Hearted with a semi‐spoken vocal and versions of Problem Child, You’re Gonna Cry, and Claudette that didn’t surface until the late ‘80s. The enclosed 20‐song CD boasts more scarce items: the exciting saxophone‐overdubbed versions of Mean Little Mama and Problem Child; both sides of Orbison’s pre‐Sun debut single for Je‐Wel fronting The Teen Kings that paired Ooby Dooby and Trying To Get To You; both sides of protégé Ken Cook’s Phillips International single (Roy joins Cook behind the mic on I Was A Fool), and ex‐Teen King Peanuts Wilson’s rendition of the Orbison‐penned I’ve Had It, which debuted on vinyl via a Bear Family 45 in 1999. Immortal as his smash ballads will always remain, Roy Orbison was a red‐hot rocker when he was at Sun. This package generates a ton of Sun‐bred heat!
