AllMusic Review by

Flotsam and jetsam from Orbison's backlog: rejects from the '60s Monument era (including the virtually unknown Gene Pitney composition "Darkness"), a couple German tracks, the rare theme to the obscure 1970 movie Zigzag, and some unreleased songs from the late '70s and mid-'80s. No undiscovered standouts here (with the possible exception of the operatic "Darkness"), and the post-'60s material is vapid; for fans only.
