The Fastest Guitar Alive is a 1967 American musical comedy film directed by Michael D. Moore and starring singer Roy Orbison in his only starring role as an actor. The film features Orbison performing seven original songs which appeared on his 1967 MGM record album of the same name. His song "There Won't Be Many Coming Home" is featured in the 2015 western film The Hateful Eight.

In Dreams is the fourth LP record by Roy Orbison with Monument Records recorded at the RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee and released in 1963. It is named after the hit 45rpm single "In Dreams. In 2004 Rolling Stone named the title song number 319 on their 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The Fastest Guitar Alive soundtrack was originally released in June of 1967. Roy Orbison and his long-time cowriter Bill Dees ('Oh, Pretty Woman,' 'It's Over,' and many other hits) wrote all of the songs for the film that starred Roy Orbison in his feature film debut with MGM Pictures. The single, 'There Won't Be Many Coming Home' reached in Australia. Long sought by fans and out of print for decades, this re-issue is fully remixed and remastered to return the audio to its original glory.

Orbison's one bid for film stardom, The Fastest Guitar Alive, was an unqualified flop. The soundtrack fares slightly better, but only slightly. With ten songs clocking in at a mere 27 minutes, most of the tunes - which Roy composed with longtime collaborator Bill Dees - borrow from the cheesiest elements of cowboy music, with quasi-Mexican guitar riffs, silly Indian chants, and uneasy spaghetti western pathos. For all its ill-conceived failure, though, it includes what may be his best obscure tune, the rarely anthologized "Whirlwind.
