CD 1 is mostly `the hits', meaning, numerous singles from her albums, in radio edit form, and not just from her 86, 87, 89 and 91 albums. We get tracks from 95, 97, 05, and new tracks from 09. Santa Maria, a single from 97, is here in its radio edit--but on disc two in its 12" version! Did we really need both lengths of the same song? Same goes for the new sleazesisters mix of Touch Me--which is on disc 2 in its full length!
CD 2 is the real gem for collectors and the reason the disc gets 5 stars. The club mixes of Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now and I Only Wanna Be With You were not only NOT Samantha's biggest hits but also both available on the recent reissues of her CDs, so the space is wasted with these. The grand gems are the two Stock Aitken Waterman rarities. You Started Something was only in a single version on her album, so this full SAW club mix is great (even though it's less than 6 minutes long). The Stock Aitken Waterman track Too Late to Say Goodbye never made it to any of her albums, so this is super rare, and featured in its 12" version here (again, less than 6 minutes). This song was a single for Jason Donovan, with a slightly happier, upbeat feel. Next, the Italian Underground Radio version of 1995's Go for the Heart combines the sounds of the Real McCoy, Rozalla, and Robins S. Another Woman is a downtempo bore.Read more ›
This new Greatest Hits (buy the 2 CD version!) is worth every penny. There are some real gems here. Especially Santa Maria and the new Tomorrow with Marc Mysterio. They are so much fun! The remixes included are worth the price of the CDs alone. In addition to being a gorgeous woman, Sam has an incredible voice which is really highlighted on Tomorrow! I hope this will soon be included on a new CD of new material! One can always hope!
You will not be sorry in the least when you buy this! Enjoy!
I'm very glad I bought this set to replace my old Samantha Fox hits CD from the early '90s. All in all, this is a fantastic collection. I suspect Samantha Fox is very proud of it, and she should be. There's a kind of ironic bad-girl sweetness to Fox's singing, and the producers and musicians she worked/works with play to her strengths wonderfully. This set should please both die-hard fans and casual fans (like me).
Has all the best songs. I could listen to this all day.
Samantha Fox's songs are great fun and easy to listen to, as this this Greatest Hits will show you.

I would have to say that this is a 4.75 out of 5 since the version of "Touch Me" track one on CD one does not have much bass but is still quite good. Read morePublished on June 4, 2013 by James Dond 007
If you are a Samantha Fox fan, and that's a big 'if', you'll completely enjoy this CD collection. The cover materials are all new pictures of Samantha, which is good to see in... Read morePublished on July 3, 2010 by James E. Helmick
