Roy Orbison - The Original Roy Orbison Classics Vol.1

TJR says:

“Really good”

Apparently, this budget line issue was issued as part of a triple CD set, although I remember buying "Volume 1" as a single CD in a bargain bin. These are primetime Roy Orbison cuts, 1959 to 1964, featuring 4 mega-cuts; "Only The Lonely (Know The Way I Feel)", "Running Scared", "Blue Angel" and "Up Town".

The Pro review:

If there is anybody left in the world without a Roy Orbison album, then I would strongly recommend that this is at least one of the albums that should be considered. It shows The Big ’O’ at his finest with his multi octave vocals coming to the fore.
