Roy Orbison‘s first career-spanning anthology is due for release on October 28.
The 26-track Ultimate Collection runs from his early recordings for Sun Records and Monument Records through his time at MGM and his membership of the Traveling Wilburys.
The set has been compiled by Orbison’s sons, Alex, Wesley and Roy Jr. In a statement quoted by Rolling Stone, Alex Orbison said, “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. 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.”
The Ultimate Collection is released as a single CD or double vinyl.
The tracklisting is:
“Oh, Pretty Woman”
“I Drove All Night”
“You Got It”
“Only The Lonely”
“Mean Woman Blues”
“Too Soon To Know”
“She’s A Mystery to Me”
“Not Alone Anymore” (Traveling Wilburys)
“Handle With Care” (Traveling Wilburys)
