    Roy Orbison Original RCA Acetate for "The Loner" in Framed Display with Signed Photo. A 10" acetate with a printed RCA Victor Reference Recording label bearing the typed information: "45 [Speed]/ Roy Orbison/ The Loner". Framed with it is an 8" x 10" B&W promotional photo signed in black felt tip: "Roy Orbison". Framed in black to an overall 15" x 23". Frame is a bit dinged but pressing and photo appear Excellent. Not examined out of frame. From Bob's "Rockin' Texas" Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    Orbison signed with RCA Records in Nashville, circa 1958-1959, after his early days at Sun. He recorded several tracks for them under Chet Atkins with only two unsuccessful single releases. "The Loner" is not one of these documented RCA tracks. In fact, the song was not released until after his years at Monument Records, being included on his second MGM album, The Orbison Way, in 1966. This acetate's label matches those found on Elvis RCA acetates from circa 1960.
