ROY ORBISON - CBS TV The All-Time Greatest Hits Of CD 89 w The Complete Sun Sessions CD

I remember getting the TV CD right after watching the movie 'Blue Velvet' just to get the song in the movie, In Dreams.  Ended up being my very first CD purchase as I had held out buying only vinyl into the college years.  I made the other CD of the Sun sessions from somewhere.

THE SWEET - Golden Hits CD 96 w The Collector Series CD 89

Spent many hours listening to the red CD shown above.  The energy of a glam band like the Sweet belongs in every collection!   Also nice to be grouped next to a band like MC5 with similar energy. Link 1 of 2:

MC5 - Babes In Arms Roir CD 83 w Kick Out The Jams LP 69 w Back In The USA LP 70 w High Time LP 71

A collector told me once he thought the only 60's bands that anyone would remember in the future would be the 13th Floor Elevators and the MC5.  Let's hope they finally get into the Music Hall of Fame after last year's disappointment.
