Laminar Flow is an album by Roy Orbison recorded at Wishbone Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and released in 1979 on the Asylum Records label. It was the last album of new material Orbison would release in his lifetime - his next studio effort, In Dreams, featured re-recordings of old Orbison hits whilst Mystery Girl and King Of Hearts, his final collections of all-new material, were released posthumously.
