“Orbisongs” by Roy Orbison - album review

features in: (B-list) Album Chart of 1965(B-list) Album Chart of the 1960s

TJR says

By now, Roy has signed for MGM Records and has released his new long player, “There Is Only One Roy Orbison”. This hodge-podge effort of an album was a last throw of the dice from Monument Records. What should have been the new housing album for “Oh, Pretty Woman”, ended up as some sort of bastardized semi-new / semi-compilation effort, dredging up some oldies from the early 60s and presenting one or two of them in alternative takes or edits. A most shabby business.
