5.0 out of 5 stars "The Best of Debby Boone" A Must for Her Fans. April 30, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After her mega hit "You Light Up My Life" in 1977, Debby Boone's subsequent singles, however good they were, achieved only moderate success on the easy listening and country charts. They are assembled here on this "best of" mid line CD. Included are her wonderful versions of several oldies from the 60s such as "Baby, I'm Yours." In addition to her no. 1 hit, she also sings two other motion picture theme songs, "When You're Loved" from "The Magic of LAssie" and "I'll Never Say Goodbye" from "The Promise." Although they had little impact on the charts when released initially, nonetheless, they are two of the most beautiful love songs to come from the movies in the seventies. "Are You On the Road to Loving Me Again," with its catchy lyric and upbeat rhythm, is still a personal favorite after all these years.
When I met Debby Boone after she performed in concert here last year, I lamented the fact that the record companies have not signed her to record more secular music, perhaps an album of movie theme songs, or one of romance classics, or perhaps a big band album. She is such a talented performer with such a lovely voice. Her fans want more of her on records, and we're still waiting.

Debby Boone has really been underrated as a pop singer. She has a beautiful voice and great deliveries on peppy and ballad pieces! I have 6 pop albums of hers I would like to replace but, unfortunately, the only available cds of hers other than this are religious ones. Her promotor needs to get some of her pop lps out on cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than a one hit wonder September 14, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although the song choice for this CD is curious, (why include "My Heart Has A Mind of It's Own" and leave out "See You In September" and "I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love"?) even the songs on here confirm that Debby Boone is a much finer singer than critics have claimed. "You Light Up My Life" is a beautiful song, beautifully sung. The artist can't help it if it was overplayed. Most of the other songs on this CD are also gems; "When You're Loved" and "I'll Never Say Goodbye" are standouts, songs that any artist would be proud to have on a greatest hits CD. Unfortunately, several songs from her early albums that are wonderful ("What Becomes of My World", "The End of The World", "Until Your Love Broke Through", "Take It Like A Woman") are missing, and none of her Christian contemporary songs are on this CD, but it's great as it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of Debby Boone October 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was very happy to see this release of Debby Boone's material. It is a great compilation of her songs from the late 70's and early 80's. You Light Up My Life is a beautiful song and no other celebrity can sing it the way Debby does. I enjoyed her country hits as well: "Are You On The Road to Lovin' Me Again" and "Perfect Fool" were at the top of the charts and are fun songs. There is so much more material that could have been placed on this album like "Take It Like A Woman"; "Savin' It Up" and "Meet Me on the Dance Floor". There was a variety of types of music she sang that showed her versatility. Many will enjoy this album, but it is a shame that many other of her songs could not have been included. Curb records has recently released a compilation of her inspirational songs which is done very well too. If you purchased both of these CD's you will be satisfied. I'd love to see some new material from her. She is a great talent and never received the recognition she deserved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living up to her pedigree February 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The daughter of pop singer Pat Boone and maternal granddaughter of country singer Red Foley, Debby proves on this collection that she has absorbed all those musical influences.
This collection covers the period 1977 to 1980, during which time Debby had enormous success in America. You light up my life spent many weeks at number one in the American pop charts and also made the top five in the country charts, though it barely made the top fifty in Britain. Unfortunately, Debby was unable to find a follow-up pop hit, but eventually had a number one country hit with Are you on the road to loving me again.
Both those songs are here, along with two Connie Francis covers (My heart has a mind of its own, Everybody's somebody's fool) and a Barbara Lewis cover (Baby I'm yours). There are two songs here by the brilliant but obscure Diane Pfeifer (Free to be lonely again, Perfect fool) who, as far as I know, recorded one album of her own around that time then disappeared back to obscurity. Two excellent movie songs - When you're loved (from Magic of Lassie) and The promise (from The promise) - and another fine song (God knows) complete an excellent set.
This collection contains all the essentials from a great singer who did the family proud.

5.0 out of 5 stars a mere taste of the best July 23, 1998
Format:Audio CD
This best of collection shows this artist in a varying array of styles that showcase heartfelt vocals throughout. Nashville shone via this artist before it was "cool to do country". The release also showcases Boones' pop vocal belting which has earned her a few grammys and numerous other awards and nominations. Although the release pretty much ignores her gospel roots, it shows a gifted interpreter who regardless of the "one hit wonder " tag peirces through that tag with a voice of sheer power and joy.
