THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION
INCLUDES MATERIAL FROM SUN, MONUMENT, MGM YEARS, LATE SOLO CAREER AND TRAVELING WILBURYS
The 26-track anthology, out October 28, will be available as a single CD and as a double vinyl LP set, spans four decades, from his start at Sun Records in the mid 1950s, all the way through his massive comeback in the late 80s. The collection chronicles Orbison s work both as a solo artist and with supergroup Traveling Wilburys until his tragic death at the age of 52. The Ultimate Collection marks the first time ever that any Roy Orbison compilation album has incorporated tracks from all of the aforementioned sources.
Roy s son, Alex Orbison, painstakingly selected songs that were most representational of his father s vast catalog, which totals 27 studio albums, four live albums, and over 60 singles. Narrowing it down was no easy task. "It is a great honour for me and my brothers, Wesley and Roy Jr., to finally and definitively distill our father's entire career onto a single disc as best one can possibly do and, certainly, as never done before," said Alex. "It is the result of years of research, archiving and listening, and it is with supreme and heartfelt pleasure that we will be able to share it with the world."</span>
