Great songs exist throughout on this. My faves are Mean Woman Blues, Oh Pretty World, Oooby Dooby, Running Scared, Crying, Working For The Man, and Drean Baby. Gosh I just listed 8 of the 18 tracks. Heck they are all enjoyable but those 8 stand out a little more.
Nonetheless, Roy Orbison's voice and song stylings will live on forever. Pick this collection up for sure.
