Again, kudos to Rhino! | 02/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kudos to Rhino for bringing this "forgotten" period of Roy's career into the light with such grace. Roy recorded many more songs for MGM than he did for Monument, and Rhino did an excellent job of sorting through them to bring us the cream, in wonderful sound and with loving annotation. It must be said that this does not equal the brilliance of his Monument period, but, taken in it's own right, is a wonderful collection of music, showcasing arguably the greatest rock vocalist of all time. A 5 star winner. Thanks again, Rhino!"
Compilation of great songs

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't understand why I haven't heard of any of these songs until I bought this record: about every single track is worth listening to several times.The selections of this great compilation are absolutely wonderful, sung in a way only Roy could sing them - simply "classic Roy Orbison"."
You'll wonder why Roy's music wasn't more popular.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album highlights music by the Big O that will make you wonder: why haven't I heard any of these songs before? You would think that with such beautiful songs as "Here Comes the Rain, Baby" and "She" that they would be American classics, but that's the mystery of Roy Orbison... why haven't we heard more from him and more about him? This album is terrific. The only short-coming is "Twinkle Toes" (dumb song)."
