This cd is fun , but but not Cher at her best
on September 3, 1998
Cher is featured mostly in a disco mode on this 2 lp compilation from the disco era. The production is slick and predictable, and Cher sounds like she had to cut these lps! There is a feeling of the artist not really making the most of her god-given contralto. There are some numbers that deserve a listen. The hits " Take Me Home", and "Wasn't it Good", are commercial stand-outs.The Bob Esty penned "Shoppin' is a real 40s' tribute and is Cher biographical too. Chers' paen to Greg Allman, "Too Far Gone" is one of the few songs she ever wrote to be featured on an albumn.It is a simple moving vocal, and probably the most emotive cut. "Hell on Wheels" and "Outrageous" are absolute trash, and are material noone could revive, not even the mercurial Cher.
