Part Three of the Complete Roy Orbison looks at the third and final chapter of his legendary career. Roy’s switch from Monument Records to MGM Records meant that the songs remained top notch, but the hits were few and far between. Roy never stopped touring and writing and believing that one day he’d make it back up to the top. You’ll hear his amazing comeback in the 80s with the hits “You Got It”, “Crying” with KD Lang and “Handle With Care” with the Traveling WIlburys. Some of the people that knew him best, like Tom Petty, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bono and Elvis Costello share some of their Roy Orbison stories.
