American Songwriter: “Lost” Roy Orbison Album, MGM Box Set To Be Released In December
October 26, 2015
Roy Orbison‘s MGM catalog is set to be reissued in a 152-track box set, along with an unreleased album recorded in 1969.
The MGM Years box set will feature all 11 studio albums the late musician recorded for MGM after leaving Monument Records. It will also include a collection of non-album singles and B-sides and the soundtrack to The Fastest Guitar Alive, the film starring Orbison that was part of his deal with MGM. It will be available digitally, in a 13-disc CD set, and a 14-disc vinyl set.
One of the Lonely Ones is a 12-track album that was recently discovered by Orbison’s sons. Among the album’s songs are a cover of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and “Child Woman, Woman Child,” a song akin to Orbison’s biggest hit, “Pretty Woman.” It will be released digitally and physically on CD and 180-gram vinyl…
