During the explosive early days of the women's liberation movement, this dynamic female member of the British Invasion dove head first into the controversy, becoming an outspoken and often harshly criticized spokesperson for the emotionally charged issue.
However, no matter what anyone thought of her politics, no one could deny that Helen Reddy was a superior songstress, possessing a vibrant voice and a dynamic delivery. Her music remains as magical today as the day it first hit the airwaves.
Helen Reddy's Greatest Hits (and More) is without question the finest collection of her material available. From the powerful I Am Woman, the cross-over smash Delta Dawn (equally successful for Tanya Tucker on the country side), and the provocative Angie Baby, to her brilliant cover of You're My World (arguably better than the original), this disc offers hit after hit after delightful hit. The mastering of the disc is exquisite, and the sound is bright and clear.
Anyone who followed the pop/rock music of the early and mid-seventies can give you several reasons why Helen Reddy was a major musical force during those years. This disc can give you fifteen. Don't miss it!

I found the album in my daughter's CD player in her car. When it came on I recognized Helen Reddy, although I hadn't heard "Tell Me How To Love Him" by her. I found myself singing along with each song and remembering some of my best times. The album lightened a day which started out very poorly - I was going to recover property from my car which had been totaled with my daughter in it. Thanks, Helen. You made my day...again

The first track on HELEN REDDY'S GREATEST HITS (AND MORE) is the song "I Am Woman." If Reddy would never have done anything else, she would have still been remembered for that song. Before I purchased this album, I didn't even know that Reddy was the woman responsible for the song. But now I do. Anyway, I purchased this album because of the song "Keep on Singing." When I was a senior in high school our choir sung "Keep on Singing" and the words have always stuck with me ever since then. They've inspired me on days when nothing else (including scripture) could. I didn't find out until recently who was responsible for the song. When I found out about Reddy and that "Keep on Singing" was on this album, I purchased it. The album is worth owning just for that. However, besides "I Am Woman" and "Keep on Singing," there are several other good songs on the album that one might enjoy:

"I Don't Know How to Love Him" (From JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR)

"Angie Baby"

"Somewhere in the Night"

"You're My World"

My only real complaint about the album is that a few of the songs haven't aged well over the years. Besides that, most of the songs on the album are kind of folksy, but with a feminine slant. I'm not usually into that type of music, but overall I enjoyed the album.

It seems as though the era of women's liberation was a long time ago, but of course it was not. Some would argue that women's liberation continues even today. Regardless, Helen Reddy was considered one of the women at the forefront of the battle. Her pop song "I Am Woman" was considered by many to be an anthem for the women's liberation movement. Of course, Helen Reddy sang much more than just that one song, and this collection provides a good selection of Helen Reddy's music.

This CD is heavy with love songs in all their various forms. "I Don't Know How to Love Him," the poignant "You and Me against the World," the poetic "Emotion," the intimate and tender "Somewhere in the Night," which is great mood music, and the tribute to love "You're My World."

"Leave Me Alone (Ruby Red Dress)," "Delta Dawn," the surrealistic and fantastic "Angie Baby," Helen Reddy's equivalent of "You're so Vain" is embodied in "Ain't no Way to Treat a Lady," the fast paced song about not putting up with his shenanigans "I Can't Hear You no More," and "Make Love to Me" are about love gone awry, sometimes involving mental illness or a man taking advantage of an innocent girl, and sometimes it involves both.

Other songs deal with miscellaneous subjects. "Keep on Singing" is about the love of music and how music can give you comfort in harsh times. The song "Peaceful" is about living life and stopping to smell the roses and remembering times past and times yet to come. "The Happy Girls" sings about loneliness and finding someone to love, a real someone versus and idealized someone.

My favorite songs are the mellow songs.

These songs take me back, but they still sound fresh. Most of her top songs are here, and these were huge hits..."I Am Woman", "Leave Me Alone", "You And Me Against The World", "Angie Baby", "Ain't No Way To Treat A Lady", and the old Cilla Black classic "You're My World". This disc will certainly please Helen Reddy fans.
