Album artwork for Original Mono Singles As & Bs by Roy Orbison

There have been countless Roy Orbison compilations over the years, but all too often overdubbed or stereo versions are used, which possess neither the presence nor the bite of his original mono 45rpm versions.

Indeed, the best way to listen to Roy is to hear those original singles in glorious, pristine mono, sounding exactly as they did when you bought them all those decades ago.

This compilation presents his first seventeen singles, released between 1956-62, on Je-Wel, Sun, RCA Victor and Monument, with one omission; the first, non-hit version of 'Ooby Dooby' (NB: his Sun re-recording, which is included, was his first hit).

Also included are his early million sellers 'Only The Lonely', 'Blue Angel', 'Runnin' Scared', 'Cryin'', and 'Dream Baby'.

This is an intriguing body of work, and it is interesting to compare his very early 45s with the ten peerless singles herein, which he cut for Monument.

1. Trying To Get To You (By The Teen Kings) 2. Ooby Dooby 3. Go! Go! Go! 4. Rockhouse 5. You're My Baby 6. Sweet And Easy To Love 7. Devil Doll 8. Chicken Hearted 9. I Like Love 10. Seems To Me 11. Sweet And Innocent 12. Almost Eighteen 13. Jolie 14. Paper Boy 15. With The Bug 16. Up Town 17. Pretty One 18. Only The Lonely 19. Here Comes That Song Again 20. Blue Angel 21. Today's Teardrops 22. I'm Hurtin' 23. I Can't Stop Lovin' You 24. Running Scared 25. Love Hurts 26. Crying 27. Candy Man 28. Dream Baby 29. The Actress 30. The Crowd 31. Mama 32. Leah 33. Working For The Man
