So glad I finally replaced it.
Margaret Crossan
This collection shows why Wynonna has transcended the country/pop genre by singing any kind of song great.
Michael Butts
The Romantic Balled "To Be Loved By You" Is One Of My Favorite Songs To Listen To.

Format: Audio CD
This compilation of Wynonna's music from 1992 to 1997 is fascinating but the diverse mix of styles that she drew upon made it increasingly difficult for American radio stations to play her music, with the result that she gradually lost her pre-eminence in country music without finding an alternative niche. Discerning music fans that accept quality music and enjoy her eclectic mix of styles stayed loyal.

Wynonna began her solo career with her hugely successful album simply titled Wynonna. Although markedly different from her previous music as one half of the Judds, this easily fitted within the framework of country radio. They loved the four singles and played them often enough to ensure that they all reached number one. All four (No one else on earth. I saw the light, She is his only need and My strongest weakness) are included here, though no other tracks from that album are.

Wynonna's second solo album, Tell me why, was much more varied but two singles (Tell me why, Only love) released to country radio made number one while the other two (Rock bottom, Girls with guitars) made the top ten. You not only get those four hits here but one other tracks too, Is it over yet.

Revelations yielded the country number one hit, To be loved by you, and another hit, Heaven help my heart (a cover of a Tina Arena song), but was generally much less successful than the other two.

This is a nice collection that shows Wynonna's many influences. It isn't country, pop, rock, soul or blues, but a mix of all of them. This suits me fine but it's not to everybody's liking.

I should add that the UK version of this collection contains seven extra tracks, two of which never appeared on any of Wynonna's own albums, these being Making my way (from the Associate soundtrack) and Healing (a duet with Michael English), so dedicated Wynonna fans may wish to seek out that version instead of the standard American version.

No doubt about it. Along with Trisha Yearwood, Mandy Barnett and Shelby Lynne, Wynonna is among the best of our modern country female vocalists. These ladies can surely teach Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Terri Clark and Martina McBride the difference between commerciality and good old honest SINGING. This collection shows why Wynonna has transcended the country/pop genre by singing any kind of song great. "Girls With Guitars"- lots of fun. "Heaven Help My Heart" is just as good as the writer Tina Arena's version. Her ballads "She's His Only Need" - heartrending. A glorious collection for diehard fans and for anyone looking for a refreshing change from Shania Twang! Go get em Wynonna!

Ok, we all know the history...famous duo...more awards than any other...forced to retire due to Mama Judds health. That was 1991. But could Wynonna strike out on her own without Naomi's harmonizing vocals? 1992's solo effort simply titled, Wynonna, showed them all with style, courage, and funk. Landing at #4 on Billboards Top 200 Chart, selling more copies of a female debut and having 4 #1s this album is a landmark in country music history. But the tide did not stop in 1992...
1993 brought us Tell Me Why. Tell Me Why brought a new look, a new sound, and new world-wide acclaim. With the #1's Tell Me Why and Only Love, not to mention the top-10 Rock Bottom and Girls With Guitars this album showed us that there was more to come with this one named wonder. 1996 brought Wynonna's #1 To Be Loved By You. Although the album it came from, Revelations was not a sales smash it certainly was a smash for Wynonna. Using personal experience and heartache, Wynonna crafted an album that opened up her heart to all of us.
Why do I expound on these albums? Because they were the ingredients for 'Collection.' Being her last album with MCA/Curb it was no wonder it would be a greatest hits album. Nothing is new here, except jazzed up versions of Rock Bottom and No One Else on Earth. It is a wonder why A Bad Goodbye was not included on this Collection.
One knows that this the first of many greatest hits collection from this woman with the soul of Elvis and the guts of Patsy Cline. A woman that seems to be reckoned with.
Wynonna proves that she did and can make it on her own. With over 10 top ten hits and millions of album sales she has the fan base to protect her. Her style and courage to chart her own waters will serve her well. It already has!

Going solo was the best thing she ever could've done, & it shows on this collection. The Judds were good at the soft country ballad style, but whenever they experimented with blues & country-rock, they sounded silly & unconvincing. Wynonna the solo artist has no such problem, however, as she proves here. Highlights include the blues-rocker "Girls With Guitars", the spunky "Rock Bottom", the straight-country hits "I Saw the Light" & "Tell Me Why", & the beautiful "Heaven Help My Heart." Personally, I could've done without "Only Love" or "Is It Over Yet". There are plenty of other great album tracks that could've been included. But over all, a very good sample of her work.

Wynonna is the other country artist i got to know thru Nick (even though he's BIG time into Reba...).
On the contrary of Trisha, Wynonna has more of a rough voice, she's more of a barn-type kinda girl.
Her greatest hits package focuses more on uptempos than ballads.
Although i must admit that the ballads are what i like best here: TO BE LOVED BY YOU and IS IT OVER YET are absolutely great!
The Tina Arena's HEAVEN HELP MY HEART could have sounded better but still is a good one.
NO ONE ELSE ON EARTH and GIRLS WITH GUITARS will make your feet stomp..
Again i have to point out that the european release has more tracks : a nice duet with Michael W. English called HEALING, MAKIN' MY WAY written by Diane Warren off The Associate Soundtrack, the Sheryl Crowe penned FATHER SUN and a Lynryd Skynryd cover...
Great best of compilation.
