1 - ORBISON, ROY - AND THE TEEN KINGS - (LP) 
CHARLY


... After recording on the Je-Wel label in Texas, Roy Orbison and his band The Teen Kings came to Memphis in the Spring of 1956. Orbison continued recording for Sun through to 1958, but he couldn't replicate the success of his first release, Ooby Dooby, which reached the lower half of the Hot 100 and selling over 350,000 copies. After leaving Sun, Roy signed with RCA but met with no commercial success until he moved to Fred Foster's Monument label, and struck gold with Only The Lonely, backed by Go Go Go. Between 1960 -1965 he notched up 21 hits before switching to MGM and scoring seven more hits in the next two years. One of the most popular American artists in Britain, his popularity wasn't dented by the advent of the Merseybeat era. He topped the U.K. charts three times and charted 33 times. Roy came back to international prominence as a member of The Travelling Wilburys before resuming his solo recording career on Virgin. He returned to the charts after a gap of 20 years in 1989 and charted six times up until 1993, despite his premature death in 1988. This album contains the original undubbed versions of Tryin' To Get To You, Problem Child, You're Gonna Cry, Mean Little Mama and This Kind Of Love. It also contains the first recording of I Was A Fool that features Roy and Hayden Thompson on vocals.The version of Problem Child included here is without sax overdub. This album contains the original undubbed versions of Tryin' To Get To You, Problem Child, You're Gonna Cry, Mean Little Mama and This Kind Of Love. Detailed notes by Ding Dong unravel the Sun period of Roy's recording career.

4 - ORBISON, ROY - THE HITS - (CD) 
HALLMARK


Roy Orbisons popularity shows little sign of diminishing, even though it is more than thirty years after his death.Indeed, recent weeks has seen three albums reside inside the British album charts, including two Top Ten hitswith collaborative efforts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra that featured archival vocal recordings of Royalongside orchestral arrangements by the RPO. And since there are only ever going to be so many existing Royfans, the implication is that his work is finding new ones along the way.The sixteen tracks on this, the early hits of Roy Orbison, give you the opportunity to relive the distinctive tones ofa great singer/songwriter who although sadly missed left a legacy of great music.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Only The Lonely (know The Way I Feel) 02. Raindrops 03. Bye Bye Love 04. Blue Avenue 05. Blue Angel 06. Lana 07. Love Hurts 08. All I Have To Do Is Dream 09. Uptown 10. Here Comes That Song Again 11. Candy Man 12. The Great Pretender 13. Running Scared 14. Loneliness 15. Im Hurtin 16. Cryin 17. Working For The Man 18. Dream Baby (how Long Must I Dream) 19. The Crowd 20. Leah
