4.0 out of 5 stars Orbison June 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"What's you're name?"
"My name is Oubey"
"Yeah?, Are you sure it isn't more like Oobie Doobie?"
That last line was deliverd by Robert Mitchum in the film: "Mr. Moses"...
Orbison had impact.
Although that song never made it onto our AM stations in Northern Ohio where I lived, Crying and Oh Pretty Woman did make the Charts where I lived and I've been a fan ever since.
It was even better when my favorite band, The Beatles said they were fans and actually knew him.
Years later when the band with the All-Star line-up known as The Traveling Wilbury's included Orbison and George Harrison you knew it wasn't just media talk.

As for the disc "The Very Best..." it is a great disc from many standpoints although it won't include all your favorites, it does give some beautiful versions of Orbison's work as a Singer and Songwriter, as well as a style track of how records were produced in the early Rock n Roll days thru to the 80's.

The sound quality on this disc is superb... a work done well and worthy of its title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still an Orbison Fan April 27, 2013
By GL
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Roy Orbison for years but only recently purchased my first CD, this one. It is a good mix of his early work and later, more well know work, but I truely enjoy them all. I highly recommend this album to Orbison fans and those not that familiar with his work, because you get exposed with a wide range of music.
