Rex Recordings issued this 12-track compilation of Roy Orbison's love-themed tunes, some hits and some not. Though "Oh, Pretty Woman" opens the set on an uptempo note, the rest is simply dreamy Orbison, with cuts like "Shahdaroba," Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer," Don Gibson's "I Can't Stop Loving You," "Only with You," and Boudleaux Bryant's classic "Love Hurts" included for maximum romantic and dramatic effect. Don't look for any fancy remastering or anything like that here, though. For the price, while this doesn't include all the known classics, it certainly captures the dark and ethereal Orbison to a T.
