Biography

Tracy Chapman helped restore singer/songwriters to the spotlight in the '80s. The multi-platinum success of Chapman's eponymous 1988 debut was unexpected, and it had lasting impact. Although Chapman was working from the same confessional singer/songwriter foundation that had been popularized in the '70s, her songs were fresh and powerful, driven by simple melodies and affecting ...

Editorial Reviews

Import-only collection from the acclaimed singer/songwriter spanning the first 12 years of her successful career and featuring tracks from her first five albums that she recorded for the Elektra label. When Tracy first appeared on the music scene in 1988, her self-titled debut album was heavily influenced by the classic singer/songwriter scene of the '70s and was a refreshing alternative to the over-produced dross that most of the labels were releasing at the time. 16 tracks including her first big hit 'Fast Car' plus other radio hits and great album tracks like 'Crossroads', 'Telling Stories' and 'Give Me One Reason'. Warner. 2001.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of Tracy Chapman. March 13, 2005
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I never thought I'd get a Tracy Chapman album that was better than her debut, but this is it. It takes songs from her first five albums, including 4 tracks from her debut, and 4 from her "New Beginning" album. The first 4 songs alone from "Collection" make this worth owning, they're all perfect. But other tracks like "Crossroads", "Smoke And Ashes", "All That You Have Is Your Soul", and the popular "Give Me One Reason" are all wonderful too. There's not one bad song here, and each one that I didn't know previously, I now love as well. Highly recommended. If you're wondering why this is import only, I found it at Best Buy for 15 bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good album August 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
All the important hits from Tracy's first 5 albums are featured on "Collection". I sometimes wonder where people like Tracy have gone...people who talk about things that are uncomfortable. She does that for example in her fantastic songs "Fast Car" and "Subcity" (my favourite song on the album), not to forget the superb "Talking 'Bout a Revolution".
Moreover, her great lovesongs "Baby Can I Hold You" and "The Promise" are among the most romantic ever written.
She taught us that all that we have is our soul...Tracy Chapman has plenty of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of Tracy's GREATEST, but not the BEST January 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a "greatest hits" album that makes you want to buy all of her individual albums. Tracy Chapman is a thrilling artist, a pure singer with a strong voice and a true voice. She is so talented and deserves a lot more accolades than she has received. It would make a great gift for yourself or someone on your list. This is a great CD to get you introduced to some of her older songs if you are a newer fan. I would have included "For My Lover", maybe it will be in a Tracy Chapman box set someday.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective Recording February 18, 2007
By Tom B.
Format:Audio CD
I am a big fan of Tracy Chapman and I bought "Collection" in Feb 2007 with great anticipation. However, from my experience and the reported feedback of at least one earlier purchaser, I strongly recommend thinking twice before buying this CD. We have each found a major recording defect in the CD. It immediately manifests itself as a loud, rapid and persistent stacatto tick superimposed over the music. Unfortunately, the record label has not yet effectively (as of 2/12/2007) recalled the inventory so new buyers at least through that date may get a defective CD like I just did. The good news is that the seller immediately authorized return of the defective product. As a fan of Tracy Chapman, I regret this has occurred. I am also disappointed in not having the CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection December 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a great collection of Tracy's work. It's got all her popular songs on it, and some good ones you haven't heard. I'd recommend this to anyone that has liked her radio singles, but hasn't bought any of her albums yet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Static thoughout the CD February 3, 2007
By BW
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I played the replacement CD and there it is still static throughout it. I am fustrated. I purchased it for a Christmas present. I gave it 1 star because that is the lowest star there is. If I could rate it zero stars, I would. Please,either make sure before sending the CD that it is not defective or send my money back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective Disks November 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this item and received a copy which had annoying static sounds and other bad recording problems. I returned it and asked that a proper disk be sent. The replacement sent had the same problems. There may be a batch of bad disks. I gave up with the second try and asked for a refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS CD, it is defective June 29, 2007
By Dan G
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ignored the other reviewers and bought this disk. Oops! They are right, there is a obvious buzz running through every song. I cannot believe that they still sell this. What a shame, I really wanted a collection from her!
