Product Description

And what a life it's been: 72 albums, 220 million sold-and yet no greatest-hits album! This first-ever collection of Julio's most popular songs features his famous duets with Willie Nelson ( To All the Girls I've Loved Before ), Diana Ross ( All of You ), Stevie Wonder ( My Love ), Sting, Frank Sinatra and Paul Anka, plus two new songs and several previously unreleased tracks. 37 songs in all, with photos, detailed notes and Julio's personal thoughts about each and every song!

Amazon.com

The master of the love ballad--in at least six languages--has finally put his greatest hits, along with four new tracks, in a solid two-CD bilingual set. His early material from the 1970s is solid stuff that reminds us of Iglesias's initial allure--his voice, at once mellifluous, melancholy, and warm. His early magic is evident on such heat generators as the plaintive but ultimately uplifting "Hey," the haunting "Abrazame," and the moving "Manuela." He broke the U.S. market wide open in 1984 with the corny but impacting "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" with Willie Nelson. That song began a successful series of duets with other pop stars such as Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, and Diana Ross, all included here. Of poignant interest is "Summer Wind," sung with the late Frank Sinatra. --Ramiro Burr

By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 15, 2003
Format: Audio CD
Julio was originally a goalkeeper for Real Madrid, but that career was cut short before it really got going - he was badly injured in a road accident. During his period of recovery in hospital, he became interested in a career in music, something at which he has since become very successful, originally singing just in Spanish, but later also singing in English.
Most of CD 1 is taken up with English language recordings. His solo songs include excellent covers of Crazy (Patsy Cline), Vincent (Don MacLean), Can't help falling in love (Elvis Presley) and When I need you (Leo Sayer).
He also sings duets with Willie Nelson (To all the girls I've loved before), Diana Ross (All of you), Stevie Wonder (My love), Dolly Parton (When you tell me that you love me), All 4 One (Smoke gets in your eyes), Frank Sinatra (Summer wind) and Paul Anka (My Way). Julio sings his parts of My way in Spanish but Paul sings in English. Fragile features Sting on background vocals and lead guitar.
Spanish recordings fill almost the whole of CD 2. I do not know any Spanish, though I recognize the occasional song (Amor and his British number hit Begin the Beguine, a cover of the Cole Porter classic sung mainly in Spanish), but it works brilliantly.
If you only want one collection of Julio's music, you won't find a better one than this. If you want to build an extensive collection of his music, this is a great place to start.

If you love Julio's music (his incredible voice), this is the album you have been waiting for. I have many CDs of Julio but I never owned a such complete collection of favorates (including Abrazame). Once you let Julio's music into your heart and soul, you will look at your surroundings in a different way. This is a great album and I highly recommend it.
P.S. I do not speak or understand Spanish; however, with this album, it is not necessary because you should let your imagination and dreams interpret his music.

I cannot think a fan of Gulio Iglesias would not buy this CD! All the GREATEST songs in English and other languages are on this CD. To me, any song I ever liked for Julio is on the CD... plus so many that I might have missed if I did not buy it!
Oh I wish there was DVD edition that has all of these songs..!
It's a CLASSIC... and a must for my library!

LET ME START BY SAYING THAT I AM NOT A JULIO IGLESIAS FAN, (MY WIFE IS A HUGE FAN). HOWEVER I DO LIKE SOME OF HIS SONS AND THAT IS WHERE THIS CONSPILATION COME INTO PLAY. THIS IS THE JULIO I LIKE, I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A CD WITH HIS MOST UPBEAT MUSIC AND "JULIO - MI VIDA- GRANDES EXITOS" IS A GREAT RECOLLECTION OF HIS GREATEST HITS. IT IS A COLLECTION OF THE MORE UPBEAT SONGS THAT JULIO SINGS THAT I LIKE AND SOME OF HIS SLOOOOOW SONGS I DO NOT LIKE. FOR EXAMPLE DISC 1 IS THE ONE I LIKE THE MOST SINCE IT CONTAINS HIS SONGS THAT ARE UPBEAT MUSIC, DISC 2 I DO NOT LIKE AS MUCH BECAUSE MOST OF ITS SONGS (ESPECIALLY THE ONES HE SINGS IN ENGLISH - DUETS) ARE TOO SLOOOOOOW FOR MY TASTE, BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT LIKE THE MORE MELLOW JULIO IGLESIAS YOU MIGHT LIKE. IN SPITE OF THAT, THESE SET OF CDS DESERVE A 5 STARS RATINGS. GIVE IT A TRY AND YOU WILL LIKE IT. ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ARE THAT AMAZON HAS THE 30 SECOND CLIPS THAT YOU CAN LISTEN TO BEFORE BUYING.

This is a wonderful collection of Julio Iglesias' works in English as well as Spanish and French. It includes duets he performed with quite a few big names in recorded music.

The sound is quite clean, but the person who did the mixing went well overboard when mixing the accompaniment. When there is a singer, the mix should put the singer out front so the vocals are not obscured by the accompaniment. Unfortunately, it has become a fad among the recording studios to build a wall of sound" that can make it almost impossible to understand the lyrics. This set of recordings is bad, but not as bad as some others where all you get is an impression of a still small voice in the far background that it is impossible to really hear.

Julio Iglasias is an all time wonder! However, the mixer on this album overwhelmed his superlative lyrics by putting the orchestra in the front, on top of his wonderful singing. It's a bit less on disk two but disk one is hard to hear the lyrics of not only Mr. Iglesias but those singing with him. What a shame to ruin such a wonderful collection. Of course everyone should own these songs.
I'm a bit disappointed.

AH Julio, what can I say? I must have seen him in concert in the 80's at least 8 times, just couldn't get enough. I lived in California at that time and he was out there quite often. Also saw him in Las Vegas. Now I live in Southwest Florida and saw him a couple of years ago in Fort Myers. He was still great, didn't sing too much but talked more, which was great too and he still looked good. Oh yes, the first time I ever heard him on the radio he was singing 'Hey' and that was in 1984, of course I went right out and bought the CASSETTE (no CD's yet!) and from then on I was hooked!
