ROY ORBISON BOX

On top of what appears to be a complete overhaul of his website, there's a career-spanning box set from Roy Orbison on the docket for Tuesday September 30 from Legacy.

While there's nothing new studio-wise (unreleased) from his later years (Jeff Lynne-produced to be more to the point,) all 5 of Roy's released recordings with Jeff at the helm have made the cut as well as the Wilburys Not Alone Any More. 

For the record, the only other Lynne-related track is a mash-up/remix of an old original and a newer version of Ooby Dooby.  That did not make the cut.

Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty will be among a slew of artists who will contributing comments to the liner notes.

Has Windsurfer's message written in the sand been washed away?

You're right, Doctorbob.  I always tend to forget Jeff sang background vocals on Windsurfer because even though you can pick his voice out, his contribution to the track is pretty minimal.
