Roy has joined mutually musically-minded pals Hank Davis and Scott Parker in co-producing "They Tried To Rock" - a four-part compilation series for the esteemed reissue label, Bear Family. The premise of the series is - how did pop and country stars react and try to survive as the rock 'n' roll tsunami swept through the music industry in the mid-nineteen-fifties?
Hank, Scott and Roy are currently hard at work, compiling the next two discs in the batch, "TTTR - The Popsters", aiming for a 2015 release.
Roy has contributed to Bear Family releases in the past. He provided transfers from one of his rare 78s for Canadian country singer Bob King's recent BF reissue album, Rockin' The Jukebox
He co-compiled the BF Smoke That Cigarette disc back in 2009.
He also assisted with the transfers of rare 78s, 45s and acetates for the BF Real Gone Aragon compilation, released in 2003.
