Appropriately titled, this is indeed a wonderful, concise collection of the pop diva's absolute best on one disc! The set debuted at #5 in the UK as she reemerges victoriously into the spotlight following turbulent chapters in her personal life. The set includes her biggest selling single ever, "I Will Always Love You", along with "Saving All My Love for You", "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", "How Will I Know", "So Emotional", "When You Believe" (with Mariah Carey)", "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)", "If I Told You That (With George Michael)" and more.

In choosing which CD's to buy I looked at all that were offered on Amazon and cross checked the tracks. I was able to come up with three CD's that gave me all of her hits and other songs that had become my personal favorites over the years. Her rendition of the Isley Brothers "For the Love of You" is one I could never tire of. I was able to come up with three CD's that accomplished it all for me. They are "Love Whitney," "Ultimate Collection" and "My Love Is Your Love."
Currently unavailable in North America (mine's an import from Argentina) this is a great alternative to the 2-disc greatest hits collection of yesteryear despite missing a couple of my favorite songs ("You Give Good Love", "All The Man That I Need", & "Love Will Save the Day") which has more to do with space limitations (the disc clocks in at over 79 ½ minutes) then track selection, thought I'll gladly trade tracks 4, 8, & 18 to have those 3 in here.
Also, there's no remixes, (although I'm Your Baby Tonight is a different version from the one most of us have heard.) & I'm happy about that. But unlike most reviewers, I happen to enjoy dance music & the remixes on the throw down disc are all very good but they should have just release it as a totally separate collection all together.
That said, this is a wonderful greatest hits collection. Hopefully, Houston's upcoming album I Look to You will be a throwback to what made her a superstar & a true R&B diva.
She is the Gold Standard when it comes to female vocal artists. "I'll Always Love You", is my absolute favorite of all of her songs. This song alone is worth the price of this CD. As sad as I am about her passing, I thank God that she lived, and blessed us with her incredible talent.
I have three grandchildren under the age of six, and I want to expose them to music that is timeless. Music that transcends generations. I had older siblings who exposed me to artists like Dakota Staton, Gloria Lynn, Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, Cannonball Adderly, Stanley Turrentine, etc. So, as a youngster growing up, I had an appreciation and respect for artists who were great at their craft. I want my grandkids to grow up with that same appreciation.
