The selections on here are rather decent however and are among some of his most popular songs of his career.
My favorite songs on here are Never Too Much, Give Me The Reason, Power Of Love, & So Amazing. The rest of this CD is enjoyable too.
However I have to complain about the excessive hits CDs that his record labels have put out over the years. Power Of Love, Here & Now, & Always & Forever are on so many CDs, both Greatest Hits as well as on various artists albums too. It diminishes the power that the songs on here have.
I just wish that Luthers works weren't so excessivly marketed on so many hits CDs because to me the punch that some of his best works had back in their day has been weakened.
I for one would have to say that it is best to just get all of Luther Vandross' parent albums but if you decide to get one of his hits collections I suggest getting this one. Leave the rest of his other hits CD alone except maybe his 1997 release with that contains The Best Things In Life Are Free, his 1992 duet with Janet Jackson & When You Call On Me/Baby That's When I Come Running because at least that album offers a rare song from Janet and the new(at the time) song.
Avoid The Ultimate Luther Vandross collection that was released last year because it offers nothing new. Just more of the same songs that the previous collections offered.
Luther can also sing about falling out of love with someone. I love his beautiful duet with Dionne Warwick entitled How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye. It is a bittersweet tune about the pain of breaking up with someone. A Home is Not A Home is a classic about how a home can be a strong symbol of love even when a couple is apart from each other. Luther's voice really moves the listener on this track. The music of Luther Vandross will live on forever.
The version of Songbird that Luther pulls off in this compilation is heartfelt, soulful, and oh so sweet.
The world has certainly lost one of the great musical talents of our era.
A must have.
Luther's voice is unmatched and his gift of song is a spectacular treat to hear over and over again.
I must plug the song "Superstar" because of my great love for piano. Nat Adderly Jr's featured piano lead throughout the song makes me listen over and over again.
I am also a Gregory Hines fan, and the duet "There's Nothing Better Than Love" speaks for itself. (by the way Mr. Hines, I enjoyed your vocal, but you can dance for me ANYTIME!!)
NO ONE can sing Burt Bachrach's song "A House Is Not A Home" like Luther. The only other rendition that stands out is Joe Sample's piano interpretation from the "Invitation" CD of standards.
Luther, if I may borrow one of your earliest hits, a thousand ballads from you is "Never Too Much!"

A true classic for any R&B fan. This is one of those rare album's you can play from beginning to end without skipping a song; like on a long road trip or something like that. Read morePublished 4 months ago by E. Esquivel
