    The second Roy Orbison album issued by the Monument label, Crying was originally released in 1962 and became Orbison's chart breakthrough, reaching No. 21 on the Billboard chart and No. 17 in the U.K. The album name comes from the 1961 hit song of the same name that in 2002 was honored with a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.

    By 1962, Roy Orbison had established himself as one the leading lights out of Nashville. Still, it wasn't until he met songwriting partner Joe Melson that things began to fall into place for Roy. He moved to Monument Records in 1960 — the focus in the studio was centered around exploiting the quality and range of his voice. Soon Orbison and Melson penned the hits "Only The Lonely" and "Running Scared." Orbison had arrived.
