"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.

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.

I love Roy Orbison! Surely they have done a good job with this collection. I myself took a few songs away and added one, “Crying” with K.D. Lang. After adding this one song and like I said I took out “Ooby Dooby”, “I Drove All Night”, I had what I considered to be a great collection. The quality of the recording is excellent from what my old ears could tell even listening to them via some nice Sony Headphones. My only complaint is that he died just when he was making a great come back. It surely was a very sad day for music. To me Roy had a unique sound and take on music and his songs are from the heart. I have listened to this album over and over and over and the quality and sound just keeps moving my heart and soul again and again. Roy Orbison was truly a musical genius and I am one who misses his presents in the musical world of today.

This selection of songs is a good representation Roy's core material. If you are looking for a cd with his hits this one is for you. I even like how the playlist is organized. There are not many artists like Roy Orbison. Enjoy!
