Editorial Reviews

2 CD set. For more than three decades, Randy Crawford has traversed a musical spectrum that ranges from Jazz to Soul to R&B and Pop. Her warm timbre and inventive, emotional phrasing has won her countless fans around the world including some luminaries as George Benson, Quincy Jones, Bootsy Collins, Cannonball Adderley, and Al Jarreau. "This Ultimate Collection" highlights her jazzy urban R&B hits, including 'Street Life' and 'Give Me the Night' among many others and it also takes in her biggest chart moments, 'Almaz', which reached no 4 in November 1986, and 'One Day I'll Fly Away', which peaked at no 2 in August 1980. Many will recognize the oft remade Crawford tracks such as 'Rainy Night in Georgia' and 'You Might Need Somebody', recently covered to great success by Shola Ama, but it is the range of vocal treatments and variety of songs that will impress most. All her finest moments are included, making the compilation the perfect introduction and roundup to Crawford's career. WSM. 2005.

By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on June 20, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Randy (born Veronica Crawford) is a brilliant American soul singer who had a UK top five hit (Street life) as un-credited vocalist with the Crusaders in 1973, then had two UK top five hits (One day I'll fly away, Almaz) in the eighties as a solo singer. Randy never achieved this level of success in her homeland.

Apart from those three major hits, Randy had two other UK top twenty hits (You might need somebody, Rainy night in Georgia) and several minor hits, all of which are included here, these being Imagine (a live recording), He reminds me, Last night at dance land, Secret combination, Nightline, Give me the night, Diamante (with Zucchero) and One hello. Most of the songs here are originals but, with her outstanding voice, Randy is a great interpreter of other people's songs, as this collection shows with her covers of such classics as Knocking on heaven's door, At last, This old heart of mine and What a difference a day makes as well as Imagine.

This comprehensive collection truly is the very best of Randy Crawford, one of the finest soul singers there has ever been.

A long time fan of Ms. Crawford, I jumped at the chance to own a compilation of her songs. I listen to this CD practically every day. I listen to it when I am on the railroad; when I am relaxing; when I am doing things; on my way to resting at night. This CD takes me places that my soul needs to go at times and then brings me back. Thank you Ms. Crawford for having become a singer.

I can't get enough of these two CD's! The first CD opens with Ms. Crawford's signature hit "Streelife". I also LOVE her renditions of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and "Who's Crying Now" better than either of the originals! For me, there is only one song missing from this collection, Prince's "Purple Rain", I know she has performed this song live and would've loved for one of those to be recorded for this CD collection. But other than that, this ultimate collection is a must have for any music lover!

I love this collection. The "secret combination" of music, lyrics and the great talent of Randy Crawford definitely works for me.

It goes without saying that Randy Crawford's got one of the clearest and most pleasant voices of all time! I personally find it extremely sexy too. This compilation contains her very best, including all of her well known songs. To make it supreme, all they needed to do was add her underrated movie theme "People Alone", one of her finest ballads. But who's complaining? This collection is well worth the money.

What I the about Best of collections is that there are always hits that are left off. In this case "Wrap U Up" and "I Don't Feel Much Like Crying" are left off. Both made the top 20 on the R&B charts. Also, there are contributions from some of Randy's best cds that re also missing. Try "Secret Combination," "Windsong,", "Nightline," and her cd full of covers including the excellet "Forget Me Nots" and "Come Into My Life."

Love Randy Crawford and had been a fan for a number of years now but when are they going to release "People Alone" my fave single by her from the movie The Competition. It would be nice to have that song in digital format.

Purchased at the request of the significant other for a road trip to Vegas. Good Decision!!, the CD's are great and most are songs you can sing along to. Was not familiar with Ms. Crawford, but will definitely purchase more of her work.
