First off, Gloria Estefan is just one amazing artist. Words cannot express how good she is. However, as a huge fan, I believe many other fans and myself would have rathered the tracklisting include a particular 4 more songs. This is my version of an improved tracklisting for this CD:
1. Dr. Beat (ISN'T ON THE CD)
2. Words Get In the Way
3. Can't Stay Away From You
4. Bad Boy (ISN'T ON THE CD)
5. Conga
6. 1-2-3 (remix)
7. Rhythm Is Gonna Get You
8. Anything For You
9. Here We Are
10. Get On Your Feet
11. Cuts Both Ways (WASN'T AS BIG A HIT AS THE REST, BUT WAS
STILL A HIT and SHE RECEIVED a MAJOR SONGWRITING
AWARD FOR IT, ISN'T ON CD)
12. Don't Wanna Lose You
13. Coming Out of the Dark
14. Live For Loving You (ISN'T ON CD)
15. Christmas Through Your Eyes
16. I See Your Smile
17. Go Away
18. Always Tomorrow
This would have been perfect. There is an ample 21+ minutes left to add music to this CD, but these 4 hits, among others, aren't here. Incidently, LIVE FOR LOVING YOU is my favorite, a huge hit that they still play on the radio, that isn't here. Maybe that's what really fueled my criticism. However, songs like CAN'T STAY AWAY FROM, HERE WE ARE, and I SEE YOUR SMILE, among others, truly make this CD 5 Stars!!!!! Don't these songs just make you feel like you're on some tropical island? Its so perfect its just amazing. No one has ever and will ever create music so versatilly (I hope I spelled that right) as Gloria Estefan.
Take my advice, get this CD anyway. And pick up copies of CUTS BOTH WAYS, INTO THE LIGHT, PRIMITIVE LOVE, and THE EYES OF INNOCENCE, eventually.

To Gloria Estefan, our world is a global village of sensual sounds, exotic rhythms, and passionate words. On "Greatest Hits" we get 14 eclectic tracks of well balanced, harmonious, music with a Latin edge. Four of these tracks were previously unreleased and are superb. "Christmas Through Your Eyes" is a daunting ballad for anytime of the year, about seing life as her precious children do. And the sassy "Go Away" will make you grin & waggle your finger at that naughty man of yours!
I remember when Ms. Estefan was not out front yet and their band, "The Sound Machine", played Ybor City at free concerts. I knew then, by the driving percussions, wailing horns & her sensual vocals--their rhythm was gonna get us all!
A superb addition for "best of" collections.
other musical suggestions: "Buena Vista Social Club" and "Experience the Divine" by Bette Midler
Thanks for your interest & comments--CDS

Gloria's first greatest hits collection flows like the river wild, an incredibly enjoyable mix of emotional and heartfelt pop ballads and Miami club scene dance songs akin to having special access to the best radio station in the world. This collection of pop hits is easy to listen to and hard to turn off, which is exactly what pop music was intended to be. This 14 song compilation truly is the best of Gloria's radio friendly mix of Cuban rhythms and vocal honesty. You'll recognize every song here, which is quite a tribute in and of itself. From infectious dance songs to powerful heartbreak we get it all.

There was always an emotional honesty in Gloria Estefan's vocals that is missing among the new wave of pop stars. Talent and range are not the same thing as honesty and integrity. There is a reason Gloria Estefan has such a special relationship with her fans and has managed to have such staying power in an industry where a new pop princess comes along every five minutes. You can hear that reason even in some of the earlier radio hits. That honesty reached its zenith on Gloria's final selection here, "Always Tomorrow."

THE HAPPY DANCE SONGS

CONGA -- 1, 2, 3 -- RHYTHM IS GONNA GET YOU -- GET ON YOUR FEET -- GO AWAY

These songs truly capture the feel of Miami at night, their fun mix of Cuban rhythms infectious. No one has ever done this kind of song better than Gloria Estefan. Emilio Estefan's attention to every detail in the production of each song turn these dance club party songs into glittering images of pink flamingos, sandy beaches, and exotic cars. Listening to these songs is like watching the now famous opening salvo of images from Miami Vice.

This is one of my all-time favorite collections. This CD contains songs from the 80s and 90s that will bring back sweet memories. "Don't Want to Lose You Now", and "Anything for You" are classic ballads that told the world how talented Ms. Estefan realy is. This is definitely a favorite to add to your musical collection!

Gloria packs this album with lots of hit songs that sound just as good today as they were back in the 1980's and early 90's. "Don't Wanna Lose You", a song as perfect as possible, is included here with 10 other past hits. Three new songs here are top notch also. The only complaint I have with this album is that it should have included her awesome "Live For Loving You", from her "Into The Light" CD. But she more than makes up for it with all of her other gems that are on this album.
