Roy Orbison: 23/04/36 – 06/12/88

Last month Roy Orbisons' widow, Barbara Orbison, died on the 23rd anniversary of the star's death. Reading about it prompted me to re-visit my Roy Orbison collection reminding me of just how great his music is.

You Got It is from his 1989 album Mystery Girl and reached number 3 in the UK heralding quite a come back for Roy after a 24 year hiatus from the charts. Sadly he had already died of a heart attack in December of the previous year, he was just 52. He only performed the song live once at the Diamond Awards Festival in Antwerp, Belgium. He was dead just a few days later. Such a shame. Here's the video.
