Roy Orbison - Roy Orbison's Greatest Hits

Catalogue Code: 713082

Release Date: 1 Jan 2013

After only two albums for Monument, the label decided to release a greatest hits package, padding out the album with two previously unreleased tracks in Love Star and Dream Baby. The latter track would be released as a single and sail to #4 on the Billboard chart, whilst the album itself would hit the Top 20 (it peaked at #13) and earn a gold disc for sales in excess of a million copies. The cover of the album is also worthy of special note: since he believed he was not as photogenic as his contemporaries such as Elvis Presley, he hid on stage behind his sunglasses and invariably released albums and singles without his image on the cover. This is one such example, featuring only the album and individual track titles on the front, although a part line drawing and part photograph appears on the back cover of the original vinyl release.
