The Essential Roy Orbison is set for release on March 28, the new two disc set will feature, You Got It (of course) and 3 other Jeff Lynne productions.  What's interesting here is that in the next two years Legacy Recordings is planning on releasing a remastered Mystery Girl CD and a DualDisc edition of Roy's "King Of Hearts" disc from 1992.  While the Essential Collection will contain all three Jeff Lynne-produced tracks from Mystery Girl, the DualDisc of King Of Hearts will be the more intriquing project.

I've been finding that artists are opting more for Enhanced Stereo on the DVD side of a Dual Disc instead of a 5.1 Surround Sound.  Which will King of Hearts have?  Time will tell.  I'd personally would like to lobby for the set to contain the video for Heartbreak Radio, even with the fake Roy in it.
