So many great songs in one.
E.A.O.
And "Mystery" is a good ballad with that unmistakable SWV sound and great vocals.

The CDs are easy to find, and they are very affordable.

90s R&B...no other female group personified 90s R&B (except maybe TLC) as well as SWV, and this greatest hits collection proves it. Spanning from 1992 (when the post new-jack-swing era really began) all the way to 1999, this album has it all.
We get things started off with a bang in the form of the "Right Here/Human Nature Duet Mix" which features Michael Jackson...this cut never fails to impress me. Next we go into the 1996 out-of-nowhere stunner, "Can We" which features Missy over a Timbaland beat, which sets things off for the summer of '97 jam, "Someone" featuring a newly triumphant Puff Daddy.
Track #4 could be considered SWV's signature song...yes, it's "Weak"; but it's slightly different - when Coko sings (near the end), "something 'bout the way you do, the things you're do, oo, oo, ing..." Coko's voice is solo, where on the original album version, this part is accompanied by backgroud vocals...just a minor difference that I noticed - this was probably a radio/single version.
"You're Always On My Mind" is the version you'll find on their debut, 'It's About Time' - I think the remix version (see 'Remixes' from 1994) is better. "Anything (Old Skool Radio Version)" is a certified classic from 1994, with the Wu-Tang (particularly Method Man) making an unforgettable appearance here. The "I'm So Into You" remix here is okay, but they really should have stuck with the original, which really set things off for SWV back in late 1992, early '93...(my sophomore year in high school - I remember fondly)
Why is "Give It Up" on here? Sure it's decent, but I think "When This Feeling" from 1996's 'It's About Time' was much more deserving, but hey, it works I guess.

The CD starts with one of the groups BIGGEST hit and finishes with another. The CD is chocked full of sassy-licks that would get anybody moving and grooving, even if the group didn't hit it off at first or last with you. The vocal talents of the group are displayed almost equally even though lead singer Cheryl "COKO" Gamble who is now struggling to share the same success on her solo outing as she did with group still did 80% of the vocals on the Greatest Hits Project. Tamara "Taj" Johnson displayed her talent on several cuts, who now enjoys being a full-time model more than the group itself and also sharing the spotlight, as far a vocals with former band-mate Leanne "LeLee" Lyons, who is also in the process of maybe making LyonsKing Management a hopeful success, also displayed her vocal efforts on the set as well. As a whole the group is better than some and should have kept on cranking hit after hit and as just to give thanks to the many fans who showed their support for the chart topping group, they even added unreleased tracks to help gain the attention of potential buyers who might want to hear how they progressed throughout the years and as well as they loyal fans. The only downfall of the album is the track listing which should have been arranged more from old to new instead of guessing what was the first and last of their success. Whoever said people get better with time sure must have had SWV on their mind and there's no doubt that SWV sure puts that quote to their best and fullest efforts.....

I am truly happy that they finally released a greatest hits album. I wish they could grace us with some future hits, but everything happens for a reason.Once again majority of the tracks on the album features the now soloist "Coko", but at least they incuded the songs that "TaJ" and "Lelee" had a chance to shine on! It's a shame that another great female group could not work out their differences. At least we true SWV fans have this album to add to our collection!

I don't know how they did it back then but I know that i wish they were still doing it now. SWV is definitely my favorite female R&B group of all time. The tracks on this CD are the bomb. All the best hits. All my favorites and some more. It's one of those CD's that you'd have to buy twice. Why? You scratched the first one in 20 different places cause you played it so much. Go get it! It's more than worth it.

Swv's greatest hits is the best collection of hit songs ever. The group needs to get back together. Anyone that wants to help me get some petitions going and get the group back together, email me at summerdaddy@yahoo.com! Swv great job!

The album as a whole is da bomb! So many great songs in one. The extra tracks really let Taj and Lelee shine! Great songs, great beats! I miss SWV and hopefully more will come in the future!
