5.0 out of 5 stars The "Essential" Hits plus a few bonuses April 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Though no one has yet released a truly comprehensive collection of Kim's work (as a performer AND songwriter), this import collection is fairly impressive. It does skimp a bit on her rock material ("Thrill Of The Grill," "Dancin' At The Light House" are two notable omissions) and completely ignores her pre- and post-EMI material, which is what keeps this collection from being truly definitive. But given that it gives a nice "rounded" look at her "hit years," it's likely that most of Kim's latter-day fans will be pleased. It should be noted that all of the tracks included here actually DO appear on other CDs by Kim, but those discs are either expensive (and out of print) import CDs from Japan and Austrailia, or domestic compilations that are still available. If you're looking for a fairly inexpensive way to complement your copies of "Mistaken Identity Collection" and the "Gypsy Honeymoon" best-of, this compilation is a great way to do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE DEFINITIVE KIM COLLECTION October 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
this is the definitive kim carnes collection. recorded between the years 1981-1985, this compilation is an "all-killer, no-filler" compilation from one of the best female artists of the 80's. while i may not be that familiar with some of the tracks, nevertheless, they are great inclusions in this worthy compilation.

1. Bette Davis Eyes - her most recognizable hit, topping the charts in 1981.
2. Divided Hearts - a great pop single!
3. Invisible Hands - another 80's hit
4. Mistaken Identity
5. Abadabadango - one of her great memorable 80's hit!
6. More Love - cool twist of a smokey robinson original
7. Bon Voyage
8. You Make My Heart Beat Faster - great single!
9. Cry Like a Baby
10. Does It Make You Remember
11. Pretend
12. Young Love
13. Invitation to Dance - kim does a "dance" track! rare and very valuable to this collection.
14. Crazy in the Night (Barking at Airplanes) - a great track to close this collection.

kim carnes was on the charts as mtv started its ascent to television and the households in 1981...her songs do bring a lot of teenage memories...

buy it: this is the only definitive single disc collection of kim carnes available at the moment. definitely worth your money!

avoid it: if you have already collected all or most of kim carnes' albums!

THIS IS A VERY HOT AND SENSUAL CD. THE WHOLE THING IS GOOD...NO B.S. TRACKS HERE. KIM CARNESHAS ONE OF THE THREE BEST WHITE FEMALE VOICES OF ALL TIME. TOO BAD SHE'S DISSAPEARED FROM THE SCENE.
