This roy orbison box set is pure class,75 tracks and a 68 page booklet,I
can highly recomend this set.The mastering is execellent,even better than the new box set (the soul of rock n roll)or the bear family set,which i have also reveiwed.

The set contains a selection of roys Sun recoreds,including
TRYING TO GET TO YOU
ROCK HOUSE
YOUR MY BABY
DEVIL DOLL

I DON'T REALLY WANT YOU
SOMETHING YOU CAN'T TAKE AWAY (this is the only time this song has been released on cd as far as i know,its a lovely song writen for roy by kriss kristofferson)
(the 2 songs from the regeneration album which don't appear on this set are BLUES ON MY MIND, OUR LOVE SONG)

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BUYER BEWEAR, What a load of rubish this set is,Do not buy this set unless you want to own 200 worn out prints of 1930s and 1940s westerns.Sound and piture quality is rubish !. The remaining 50 arn't bad westerns from the 50s and 70s, but no remastering .avoid this set unless you want to fill cheated.

This box set along with the bear family set is a fitting tribute to the greatest singer the world has ever seen. I have been a roy orbison fan for 20yrs now and have all his music that has ever been released on cd ,so i was delighted when i saw this was out with 12 unreleased songs (what a great treat for eny fan) eny new orbison tracks being released is an Event. !

I already had all the songs on this set (with the exception of the new songs)but it was still a very good buy and worth the money just for the new songs and the box itself which is covered in white linen with a picture of roy on the cover.(thats really nice).
I can highly recomend this set if you want a general overveiw of roys magical carier.

My only complaint would be that this set is being promoted as a overveiw of every phase of roys music,but thats not really the case as there is not one track from the 1974 murcury album (IM STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU) which contained 4 of roys best songs ( heartache, hung up on you, circle, sweet mama blue),and also the MGM years are mostly over looked on this set,which is a real pity as those years were every bit as good as the monument yrs and produced some of roys greatest moments on record,13 mgm albums and a handfull of non album singles were made in the years (1965-1973) and i feel it is time the world reconized the true creative worth of those years, so on reflection i feel this set should have have 5 discs ,with one of these dedicated to the best of the MGM singles and album tracks ,such as GOING BACK TO GLORIA, CRY SOFTLY LONELY ONE,HEADING SOUTH,PANTOMIME,SOUTH BOUND JERICO PARKWAY, GIRL LIKE MINE, HARLEM WOMAN, IT TAKES ALL KIND OF PEOPLE, CHEYENNE, GOD LOVE YOU, I WANNA LIVE,ETC ,and at least 2 tracks from the murcury album,and where is the duet with larry gatlin (indian summer)?.With 5 discs there would have also been room for another couple of tracks from the execellent regeneration album,but thats just my opinon.

The music is of course perfect and the book is very intresting and has some lovely pictures
All in all this is a good place to start if you are just getting into roys music ,and essentual for eny true fan.

This is a great set of four of jimi hedrix live concerts.
On disc 1 we have a 1967 concert recored live in stockholm,this is a no-nonsense performance of 8 songs ranging in lenght from 2 mins up to 6mins,it is a well performed perfomance fom jimi and the experience,and the sound is crystal clear although the sonics are not that great,but worth having in your collection for its historical value if your a hendrix fan.
THE 2nd disc is a 1968 concert performed in paris,again the sound is crystal clear and the sonics are alot better than the first concert,this is another good performance which clearly shows jimi much more relaxed and on better form and begining to lenghten the songs.all in all a much better concert than the first.
The 3rd disc is the 1969 concert at san diego,the sound quality on this disc is execellent and in full multi channel ,a very good concert with a 13 min version of red house and a 10 min version of spanish castle magic and a 10 min version of voodoo chile (sligtht return).
On the last disc we have the execellent 1970 atlanta concert,again in full multi track execellent sound quality.This is the bet concert in the set recorded 2 months befor jimi died.This concert include a 10 min version of ,hear my train a coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars american music fan I, 25 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Mystery Girl (Audio CD)
I first bought this album when it first came out back in 1989 just a month or so after the tragic death of roy orbison,who my opinon was quite simply the greatest singer,songwriter of all time.This is a must have album for enyone who wishes to hear eny of roys music.
I was only 19yrs old when i heard the news of roy death on the radio and to my shame it was the first time i had heard of roy orbison,but i was impressed with the snipets of his big hits from the sixtys that was played druing the news flash of his death,so much so that i bought the greatest hit compilation that came out at the time and after playing that i knew that i was listerning to something truely wonderfull
From that day onwards i have been on a quest to collect every song and album roy made in his lifetime,it took about me twenty years to get everything on cd,but its been a great ride.
Mistery girl is quite possibly the best album roy ever made, every time i hear roy sing those songs im feeled with emotion, every song is a master piece, my personal faviote being WINDSURFER.

Tanya tucker is a new discovery for me, having been a fan of country for years im suprized i have'nt discovered her before.
Arfter reading P D HARRIS reveiws on many of tanya's albums i decided to to take the plunge on this twofor 1 set, and im so glad that i did as tanya sings traditional country,and she has a beautifull voice well suited to country music,(not at all like tina turner) thankfully, as mentioned in some reviews.
This cd contains tanya's 2nd and 3rd albums,from 1973 and 1974
Most of the songs here are new to me except for 3 which are covers but Every song here is a classic ,sung beautifully by tanya.
The 3 songs which are covers are THE TEADY BEAR SONG ,(a hit for barbara fairchild) and WHY ME LORD ,(kriss kristofferson),as it turns out these are my favoraite tracks on this cd and i think tanya sings them to perfection,The third cover is LET ME BE THERE,(olivia newton john) this cd is a gem and will be one of my most played cds im sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars country music collector, 30 Aug. 2008
This review is from: First Ladies of Country (Audio CD)
This is a very good cd containing 12 tracks sung by norma jean and 10 tracks sung by melba montgomery.
norma jean had a total of 22 american country top 30 hits during the 60s/70s ,she also sung duet with porter wagoner on his tv show before dolly parton took her place.Here we have a selection of norma's early singles and some tracks from later on in the 70s.

melbra montgomery had many solo hits in the 60s ,also she recorded 3 duet albums with george jones and 1 with gene pitny.here we have have a selection of norma's songs mainly from the 70s i think but i could be rong.it is very difficult to get hold of melba on cd as not much of her music has been released on cd, however the real gem on this collection is melba's no 1 hit record,NO CHARGE,which went gold.from the early 70s,i just love melba's tenessee drool on this track.The cd is worth the cost just for this track ,if you can find it you should buy it quick befor its gone.

THIS IS A VERY WELCOME COLLECTION OF SLIM WHITMANS LATER RECORDINGS ,MAINLY FROM THE LATE 60s/70s,THIS IS A DOUBLE CD WITH 58 TRACKS ,MAKING THIS EXECELLENT VALUE FOR THE PRICE.
THIS COLLECTION HAS MANY OF SLIMS BIGGEST HITS MAINLY RE-RECORDED IN THE 70s,MANY OF THE BIG HITS FOR THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY ALBUM,WHICH ARE SO HARD TO FIND ON CD,THIS SET ALSO INCLUDES SLIMS UP-TEMPO VERSION OF WHEN MY BLUE MOON TURNS TO GOLD AGAIN ,RECORDED IN 1969.
ALSO ON THIS SET YOU WILL FIND SLIMS VERSION OF THE WESTERN SONG ,RED WING,AND THE VERY HARD TO FIND VERSION OF COOL WATER COMPLETE WITH STRINGS AND CHORUS ,THIS RECORDING HAS ELUDED MOST FANS FOR DECADES.
THERE ARE MANY OTHER RARE SONGS AND RERECORDINGS THAT SLIM MADE IN THE 70s WHEN HE WAS ENJOYING A COMEBACK .IF YOU ARE A TRUE COLLECTOR OF SLIMS MUSIC YOU WILL ALREADY HAVE THE 2 BEAR FAMILY BOX SETS WHICH GIVE YOU ALL THE SINGLES AND ALBUMS HE MADE IN THE LATE 40s THROUGH TO THE LATE 60s SO THIS SET WILL BE A WELCOME ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION.

this is a lovely little album from husband and wife team waylon jennings and jessi colter from 1972.there is no filler here,every track is alittle gem,for me the stand out track would have to be YOUR NOT MY SAME SWEET BABY.if u like waylon jennings this has to be a essentual addition to eny collection.
