AllMusic Review by

This two-disc set from Australia features a 28-track studio set that includes a fine sampling of the material Roy Orbison cut for Sun, and is comprised of mostly uptempo rockers (including "Rockhouse," "Ooby Dooby," and "Claudette") and a few duets such as "Find My Baby for Me" with Sonny Burgess. There is also an alternate take of "You're Gonna Cry." This disc is worth the purchase price if you don't own the primary Sun recordings. Disc two is a live date from the early '60s, seemingly an audience tape that is strictly fair bootleg quality; it is utterly unnecessary and will never be listened to more than once except by audio masochists.
