Mr. Lonely: His Greatest Songs Today is a collection of previously recorded songs by Bobby Vinton for Curb Records. The first five tracks might be misleading to people of the baby boomer generation, as they are not the singles that Vinton had during the 1960s and the year of 1974 but re-recordings that Vinton made for Curb. For this collection, five songs were taken from Vinton's self-explanatory album and four from his album Timeless. Re-recorded versions of "Mr. Lonely" and "Roses Are Red" make their first album appearance on this collection.
