This month you could be in with a chance of winning ONE of FIVE copies of the Ultimate Collection by Roy Orbison
Released on 28th October Roy Orbison – The Ultimate Collection is a 26-track anthology, spanning four decades, from his start at Sun Records in the mid 1950s, all the way through his massive comeback in the late ‘80s. The collection chronicles Orbison’s work both as a solo artist and with supergroup Traveling Wilburys until his tragic death at the age of 52. The Ultimate Collection marks the first time ever that any Roy Orbison compilation album has incorporated tracks from all of the aforementioned sources.
Roy’s son, Alex Orbison, painstakingly selected songs that were most representational of his father’s vast catalog, which totals 27 studio albums, four live albums, and over 60 singles, 22 of which placed in the U.S. Billboard Top 40 chart. Narrowing it down was no easy task. “It is a great honor for me and my brothers, Wesley and Roy Jr., to finally and definitively distill our father’s entire career onto a single disc as best one can possibly do and, certainly, as never done before,” said Alex. “It is the result of years of research, archiving and listening, and it is with supreme and heartfelt pleasure that we will be able to share it with the world.”
“He came from nothing, but he had these amazing gifts and this amazing drive and, of course, that voice,” said Alex Orbison to journalist Jeff Slate, who wrote liner notes for The Ultimate Collection and is also co-author of the forthcoming authorised Roy Orbison biography.
The Ultimate Collection was produced by Alex Orbison, Chuck Fleckenstein and John Jackson, and mastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York.
The Ultimate Collection includes all time classics such as ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’, ‘I Drove All Night’, ‘You Got It’, ‘Crying’, ‘Only The Lonely’ and ‘Love Hurts’ and many more!
