Legacy Recordings is honoring what would have been Roy Orbison’s 75th birthday on April 23 by releasing a pair of hits collections this spring by the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

The two-CD “Roy Orbison: The Monument Singles Collection” (due April 5) will contain all of the singer’s A and B sides — in their mono mixes — that he recorded for the Monument label from 1960-64. It also comes with a DVD of Orbison performing nine songs, among them “Oh, Pretty Woman,” from “The Monument Concert 1965.”

“Roy Orbison: The Monument A-Sides” will be available as a single CD.
