CD Reviews

Essential
Matej | Slovenia | 02/06/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was listening to this one (a tape back then) as I was driving to and from the spa after recovering from a knee operation in 1989. Those classics are beautiful and there are even two unusual rockers thrown in. I recommend the entire "trilogy" of the 1989 compilations - this album, Our Love Song and Rare Orbison. Along with All-Time Greatest Hits and Mystery Girl, this is practically The Essential Roy. All you in fact do need."
Excellent Cd Of Orbison

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Boy, somebody knew what they were doing here. The sound is pristine, obviously from first-generation tapes and balanced superbly, with every glorious Nashville moment as if recorded in your own living room. But the great selection is also the thing; these are generally lesser-known, even obscure Orbison numbers, though several rank with his very best. "Distant Drums", "Beautiful Dreamer" and "No One Will Ever Know" are prime Orbison-Fred Foster work, and "(I'd Be A) Legend In My Time" - fabulous Nashville production with strings, cascading piano, rising chorus, Boots Randolph's mournful, bluesey sax solo, the classic Don Gibson melody, Roy's magnificent vocal soaring over all of it, and a solitary bell note in the middle, to boot - is not only Orbison-Foster's finest moment, but a model testament for the Nashville Sound genre. Not an all-comprehensive selection of Roy Orbison by any stretch, but a great introduction to his best stuff, the Monument years, at a great price. But why not a better, more accurate photo of Roy from, say, the early sixties - when most of these were recorded - than the aging geezer in disco duds that somebody thoughtlessly slapped on the cover of this otherwise admirable collection?"
