Product Description:

Recording information: 1956-1976.
Perhaps Collectables Records should not get their hopes up on receiving "Truth in Advertising" awards for this two-disc Roy Orbison collection; a handy double set which compiled Orbison's classic Monument sides along with highlights from his releases for Sun, M-G-M, and Virgin would be a more than welcome addition to his catalog, but despite the title that's not what 50 All Time Greatest Hits has on board. This set features a whopping 47 tunes from Orbison's Monument years, with his three best known Sun sides ("Ooby Dooby," "Rock House," and "Go! Go! Go!") closing out disc two. All of Roy's classic '60s hits can be found on disc one, while a healthy selection of covers and lesser-knowns dominate the second half; it's all splendid material, even if the sequencing seems just a bit clunky in spots, and the mastering is more than adequate (though some of this material has sounded cleaner on previous CD releases). In short, as an overview of Orbison's most creatively and commercially fruitful period, this compilation does a fine job, but as a full career retrospective, it falls considerably short of the mark, and the sudden emergence of "Rockabilly Roy" at the very end is both odd and disorienting. (The liner notes and cover art aren't much to write home about, either.) In short, the definitive Roy Orbison hits package still remains to be assembled, though if you're looking to replace or upgrade your old copy of Monument's The All-Time Greatest Hits of Roy Orbison, this will give you just what you've been looking for. ~ Mark Deming

Rating 5.0 Roy's heart and soul in every note!! Music Lover: from Allen, TX US -- September, 30, 2008

I absolutely love this CD! Roy's vocals and the arrangements are breath taking. His soul reaches out to touch mine! The last sound I hear each night are of his voice as I listen to his music.
