The best overall Jeffrey Osborne collection
on February 19, 2004
As with all Greatest Hits collections, see which album has all the songs you want. For me, the Ultimate Collection had the most bang for the buck.
There are 2 other notable 'Greatest Hits' collections of Osborne's work: the "Love Songs" collection and the "Millenium Collection". The problem with the "Love Songs" collection is that not all of Jeffrey Osborne's work is ballads. He did do some mid and uptempo work as well that shouldn't be overlooked (Stay With Me Tonight, Plane Love, She's On the Left). As for the "Millenium Collection", that CD has far fewer tracks than this one: the "Ultimate Collection" is much better.
Osborne's voice is rich, and he was blessed with some great producers. I can't say enough about "You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song)" and a great ballad with Joyce Kennedy, "The Last Time I Made Love".
