Synopsis

Amazon.com
This 1961 album cleverly took its title from two major hits of the era--"Only the Lonely" and the lesser-known, but simply glorious, "Blue Angel." This was still the singles era, when albums were simply vehicles to spotlight hits--but it's been said that Roy could sing the phone book and make it art, so it's nice to hear his takes on "Bye, Bye Love," "I Can't Stop Lovin' You," and "Raindrops." Because almost all his songs were lonely and blue, including the great semi-hit "I'm Hurtin'" (featured here), it's darn near a concept album. This gold version of the title offers superior sound quality for a higher price than the standard-issue CD. --Bill Holdship
