Since Natalie Cole has a television film in which she stars as herself airing any day now, an autobiography on the way, and this Best Of collection, I have no reservation in believing that things may have been rushed--as this hits package suggests. Also suggested are record label politics as a few of her signature tunes are represented here via live versions (from Natalie Live, which is still in print on One Way Records, as is much of her earlier catalog) or not at all. Included are Natalie's masterpiece "This Will Be" (in its original studio version) and her postumous duet with her father "Unforgettable". Excluded, however, are key songs that placed Natalie consistantly back on the pop charts: the 7" hit version of "Pink Cadillac" (included in its less vibrant LP version), "Wild Women Do" (which demonstrated Natalie as a good a rock vocalist as any other), and "Jump Start" (one of her absolute best, and really the song that first had everyone talking of a genuine creative and commercial comeback). In the places of these are tracks from her last studio album--a highly underrated effort that should be investigated on its own terms. One ballad written and produced with Richard Marx ("Angel On My Should") and one dance number provided by the so-far undefeated Metro team ("Livin' For Love") make up the rest of this disc and are fine selections to be included among some of her best. On both Natalie exudes conviction and experience from having been around long enough to put together a hits package. With just a little more attention to detail (label legalities aside) this collection could have been a very comprehensive collection, perhaps two discs worth. Instead, it is a competent but limited gathering of hits that merely suggests that Natalie Cole had a few great records.

Natalie Cole has always been, in my opinion, very underrated, as an artist, and in particular, a gifted vocalist. This package gives good reason why this opinion has always been unjustified. Though her commercial pop/r&b peak was in the 70's, she actually made several good records in the late 80's, partially represented here by 'Pink Cadillac' and 'Miss You Like Crazy'(as noted on several other reviews,'Jump Start' is conspicuously absent). Also absent is the title track from 'Take a Look', one of her best performances on record. It was nice to see that she did include tracks from her criminally underrated 'Snowfall on the Sahara' project, particularly the stunning title track, which should have been one of her biggest hits and wasn't. Finally, if you need proof of her "divadom", look no further than the album closer 'Livin for Love', a disco throwdown in which she provides probably the fiercest vocal workout I've heard from an artist who doesn't display her vocal range nearly enough. In all, a good overview of a truly gifted artist.

Over a span of twenty five years, Natalie Cole has recorded some of R@B greatest grooves that placed her in the upper ranges of the charts. This collection spans the magic of her initial breakthough "This Will Be" in 1975 to her beautiful, but overlooked 1999 recording, "Snowfall In The Sahara." These tracks speak to her longevity and resiliency as a musical performer and artist.
The new millenium finds Ms Cole reflecting on the highlights and low points of her personal and professional career in her current biography "Angel On My Shoulder," an upcoming television movie, a well received, revealing episode on VH-1's Behind The Music, and now this retrospective of hits.
The collection contains many of the chart-toppers that ignited her career in the mid 1970's: "This Will Be," "I've Got Love On My Mind" and "Inseparable." Also included are several choice live performances of the era represented by "Mr Melody," the top 5 "Our Love," and a stirring rendition of the Beatles "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," which finally makes its first appearance on CD (originally on "Natalie Live" from 1977).
It was during that period that she flirted with many different genres and musical landscapes. "I Can't Say No," and "I'm Catching Hell" are selections that highlight her a gospel flavor. Natalie was cited by many critics to be the next Aretha Franklin when she came on the scene in 1975. Incidentally, Cole actually broke Aretha's incredible 8 year run as the best female r@b performer at the 1975 grammy awards!

I want to love this, really I do. But Rule One of a Greatest Hits disc is to actually use the hit version of the song. "Our Love" and "Mr. Melody" are here in unnecessary live versions. ("Lucy in the Sky..." was live from the get-go; I don't like it but at least it's the "correct" version.)

If there's ever a Volume 2, it needs to have the above hit versions plus such omissions as Sophisticated Lady, Someone That I Used To Love, Jump Start, Dangerous, A Little Bit of Heaven, and Starting Over Again. What's the holdup? Even U2 put out hits discs faster than this...
