Audio: Listen to Roy Orbison’s Demo for Elvis Costello’s ‘The Comedians’

On May 19, 2014 Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl will be reissued with a bunch of additional tracks.

Helping Orbison out on the album were U2’s Bono and Edge, George Harrison, Brian Eno, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Elvis Costello, T Bone Burnett and Mike Campbell.

In addition to the tracks on the original album, there are nine additional recordings — all demos except for the previously unreleased “The Way Is Love.”

Here’s the demo Orbison cut for Elvis Costello’s brilliant “The Comedians.”
