The Soul of Rock and Roll

Roy’s recordings have been collected in box-set form before, but not this comprehensively—four CDs that take in everything from his first recordings in 1955 to a previously unreleased live performance of “It’s Over” recorded two days before his death in December 1988. In between is the cream of Roy’s 1960s classics, overlooked ’70s gems and mid-’80s comeback hits. Some haphazard sequencing is the only thing keeping The Soul of Rock and Roll from standing as a fully definitive overview.
