Release notes:
From his hardcore '50s Memphis rockabilly start to his symphonic 1960s pop masterpieces and his stunning 1980s comeback, Roy Orbison's uniformly extraordinary recordings still rank today as some of American music's finest. Gifted with a soaring voice that conjured vulnerability and loss with acute precision, the Texas-born singer-songwriter-guitarist wasted no time -- he had his own radio show at age ten and formed his first rock 'n' roll band, The Teen Kings, in 1955. Recording at Sam Phillips' legendary Sun Studios alongside Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, Orbison was still seeking his ideal sound and, after parting ways with Sun, finally found it, with 1960's "Only The Lonely." Orbison's creativity gave birth to a unique, highly individualized, orchestral pop-rock style that resulted in a series of masterpieces and made him an international star. By 1988, Orbison was enjoying a dream comeback: topping the charts with songs that once again cemented his reputation as a pop genius; but ultimately, death claimed him too soon. In Dreams (which marks this legend's 70th Anniversary) is a definitive 90-minute documentary that charts the entire grand trajectory of his unrivaled career and includes in-depth interviews with Roy as well as many of his admirers.

Running time: approximately 90 minutes
