    • The "Roy Orbison Sings Don Gibson" album released in 1967, I don't own the album, but I have heard all the songs from the album. Stay tuned, two more takes are coming, still have the 70's and 80's left.

    He was great! Elvis Presley said that Orbison had the best voice in Rock and roll. That's impressive coming from Elvis.
