Description

In 1965 Roy Orbison was riding high following the success of recent smash hits highlighted by his iconic ‘Oh, Pretty Woman.’ Lured by a million-dollar contract that included a film deal his label Monument couldn’t offer, Roy left Monument and signed with MGM Records.                          
 
The MGM deal contained an almost frenetic recording and release commitment, requiring Roy to commence recording three full albums, plus multiple singles for each album, every year.   Roy delivered with both vigor and quality, with his output sometimes exceeding 70 recordings per year.  This MGM Years box set is a summation of that marvelous work—13 full-length albums including the long sought-after THE FASTEST GUITAR ALIVE soundtrack (Roy starred in the film) and a new collection of B-Sides & singles that have never before appeared on a full-length Roy Orbison album. This collection is the largest compilation of Orbison music to date. 
 
All 152 songs in this set were transferred from the original multi-track tapes at famed Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, and then mixed by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Chuck Turner at the Johnny Cash Cabin, with help from Roy’s son, Alex Orbison.  They were then remastered by longtime Roy Orbison friend and GRAMMY®-winning engineer Richard Dodd.  In order to make sure modern technology conveyed Roy’s original intent, they frequently compared their work to the original vinyl and its inherent warm sound.
 
This is some of Roy Orbison’s best, but also perhaps least known work—now all together for the first time with fully restored art and sound.  Featuring a 65-page booklet filled with rare photos and liner notes by Alex Orbison, THE MGM YEARS box set is a collector’s dream!

This set contains THERE IS ONLY ONE ROY ORBISON, THE ORBISON WAY, THE CLASSIC ROY ORBISON, ROY ORBISON SINGS DON GIBSON, THE FASTEST GUITAR ALIVE, CRY SOFTLY LONELY ONE, ROY ORBISON’S MANY MOODS, THE BIG O, HANK WILLIAMS THE ROY ORBISON WAY, ROY ORBISON SINGS, MEMPHIS, MILESTONES, and MGM B-SIDES & SINGLES.
