Best-Loved Standards is a 12-track collection that concentrates on Roy Orbison's interpretations of classic pop, country and R&B songs instead of his hits. There are no hits here at all, in fact, just very good versions of "I Can't Stop Loving You," "Distant Drums," "Great Pretender," "Let the Good Times Roll," "Bye Bye Love," "I'd Be a Legend in My Time," "All I Have to Do is Dream," "Cry" and "What'd I Say." It's certainly not a hits collection, but curious fans who know the hits and want to dig a little deeper may find this of interest.
