Customer Reviews

Her voice has matured as well as her selection of music.
Katydid
Although the cd was great, I was not impressed with Amazons new customer service regarding the free auto rip.
SR Willia
As a teenager, I have never heard of Cher's old songs before, and this CD really did turn back time.

This is such an awesome CD. Cher's album Believe is the one to dance to. This album is the one to sing to. It's been the only CD in my radeo for the past three weeks! It's just song after song after song of great hits to listen/sing to. Gypsies, Tramps, and Theives is my personal favorite. It's well worth getting.

Even before "Believe," Cher's reputation as a dynamic entertainer should never have been in question. "If I Could Turn Back Time, Cher's Greatest Hits" proves this. It is the best retrospective of Cher's career from 1965 to 1992.
The album opens with the previously unreleased "Don't Come Cryin' To Me." Recorded during the "Heart of Stone" sessions, the Dianne Warren penned tune combines heartbreak with the signature Cher toughness. The album begins the walk down memory lane with "Love and Understanding," "Save Up All Your Tears," one of Cher's best singles, and "The Shoop Shoop Song," Cher's classic cover from the 1990 "Mermaids" soundtrack. "After All" is one of the great duets of the 80s, hitmaker Peter Cetera complements Cher's voice perfectly.
"If I Could Turn Back Time" is Cher's best single, with the possible exception of "Believe," and it sounds better than ever on this collection. Other highlights from the 80s include "I Found Someone," "Bang-Bang," a remake of Cher's 60s Sonny Bono penned hit, and "We All Sleep Alone." Cher's first journey into dance pop is represented by 1979's "Take Me Home." This song stands as a great contrast to the 80s rock hits.
"If I Could Turn Back Time" closes with a look back at the 70s Cher and the 60s Sonny and Cher. "The Way of Love" is Cher's best ballad and the song sounds better now than ever. Story songs "Dark Lady," "Half Breed" and the Cher signature "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" might be dated, but they are still fun. The album closes with the Sonny and Cher classic "I Got You Babe.

I got this Cd originally as part of a gift order set. I was hesitant at first, because I wasn't really a big Cher fan and knew very little about her older recordings. Since I was born in 1979 and knew very little about Cher as a singer, I always thought that she was an actress who had crossed over into the music buisness.
To my surprise, I fell in love with this CD and take it with me everywhere I go.I have become a full-fledged Cher fan after hearing this CD.
I think that my personal favorites on the album are "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves," "Half-Breed," "Dark Lady," "If I could turn back time" and "Save up all your tears."
I thought that adding " I got you babe " and "The Shoop Shoop Song" was a great bonus, because "Shoop Shoop" was the first Cher song that I really liked as a young girl.
The previously unreleased track " Don't come cryin back to me" is pretty good also.
If I were to recommend the one Cher album to buy, I would recommend this one.

Its a shame such talent and good music Cher has is overlooked by Britney and her crazy songs. Cher has been around since 1965. Very impressive. This music is so nice, some you could dance too, some are soothing and others have important messages to them. This compilation was released around the same time as BELIEVE her big hit album. This compilation is here to remind us of how Cher's career went through the 60s 70s and 80s before the 90s release of BELIEVE. My favorites on this compilation is LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING, I FOUND SOMEONE, SAVE UP ALL YOUR TEARS, SHOOP SHOOP, JUST LIKE JESSE JAMES, GYPSYS TRAMPS AND THIEVES, DARK LADY, HALF BREED and of course the Sonny and Cher classic I GOT YOU BABE. This is obviously a MUST for any Cher fan and every other fan of Britney or any thing alse from that pop trash today. This is GOOD music and highly recommended!
GOOD WORK CHER!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO

I tend to buy a lot of "Greatest Hits" CD's, because I despise the filler tracks that you find on most CD's these days. You get three good songs, and a lot of bad. This is the only Cher CD I own, and it's quite good. There are a LOT of good songs on this disc, the kind that you sing along to when they come on the radio. I didn't even realize how many of these songs I knew, I didn't recognize them from their titles, but once I listened to the CD for the first time, it immediately became one of my favorites. "After All", "I Found Someone", "If I Could Turn Back Time", and of course "I Got You Babe" are all great songs, and this is a great album for both Cher afficianados and people who just like good music...

An amazing collection of memory lane hits. I love Cher's music old and new. This collection pays hommage to more of her older hits, compared to her "Cher the Greatest Hits" cd with the bubbles on the front. The image of Cher on the front and back of the cd are the images of Cher that I love.
If you saw the Cher Live in Concert DVD, then you'll agree that this woman and her career are remarkable. I wish time would stand still in real life, but at least for the hour or so when I put on the cd, I am in another world. Cher's world.
My favourite tracks are all the older songs.
I like the chronological blow by blow description of what was going on when each track was recorded. It's great that all the years are recorded in the liner book. At least I know what year the original versions were performed. The photos are really nice too, but way too small. There should be a special edition of this same cd, with a few extra songs, along with a book of photos and lyrics.
When we found that "We all sleep alone" was a non dance version, I thought, "hey, I didn't know that she made this version". I was accustomed to hearing the dance version from her "Believe" cd. Both versions are great. What's nice, is that you can hear more of Cher's voice in the slow version. She sounds almost in pain when she sings this song, but it's still amazing. I think that Cher has the most ecstatic speaking and singing voice ever. What a sexy woman, and what a sexy collection of timeless songs.
