Greatest Hits songs Product Information
Greatest Hits album for sale by Whitney Houston was released May 16, 2000 on the Arista label. It should come as no surprise that a woman who counts Dionne Warwick as a cousin, Aretha Franklin as a family friend, and whose mother was a legendary session and gospel singer, became a phenomenally successful R&B act. Perhaps more surprising is that it took 17 years after first signing with Arista for Whitney Houston to produce her first greatest hits album. Greatest Hits CD music is a 2-disc set with 36 songs. ...See Full Description

||Ballads and Parties|
This collection is a tale of two personalities. There are the romantic, soaring ballads, and then there are the dance club parties.

||A Little Disappointing, sad to say|
I bought this collection several years ago, and Disc 1 was okay. But, for Disc 2, I was puzzled. I wasn't fully satisfied with some of the songs that were remixed.
By Matt (Macomb, IL, USA)

||She's The Best!!!!!!!|
I personally think this album is the best Greatest Hits Album done by any artis. With 2 disc and rare song... Whitney sure rocks the industry.
By jennyk (washington D.C)
Her voice is to die for, and her music is just simply amazing and I think that she is the best DIVA that ever lived and I love all of her music and her CD's and, I hope she dumps that loser bobby brown.
By a reviewer (wallingford, CT)
||I Wanna Give it Five, But I can't|
This CD is good. Really good, but it is lacking many tracks like Her duet with Maria and her duet with Cece Winans.
By BryantBrat (Seoul, Souh Korea/Brooklyn,NY)
||absolutely wonderful music|
whitney is one of the most talented
artists,absolutely great voice,and charisma. Her duet with george michael
is beautiful. She chose one of the greatest composers and voices to work with and that makes her music even more beautiful.
By a reviewer (sweden)
||My baby , At her Greatest Combined|
Whitney Houston is the love my life and Her music makes loving her even greater. I have loved her since 1985 and through her public appearances and contributions to children, communities and life achievements it adds to this great love that I share for her music and her career choices.
By emchismo (Fort Lauderdale, FL)
||it reminds me why i fell in love with her in the 1st place|
I love greatest hits packages, & this one is one of the best!
It has all the songs we already own (but probably don't listen to anymore), like, "You Give Good Love" & "Where Do Broken Hearts Go", & songs you wish you had but didn't like "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful",& "Star Spangled Banner"...
I prefer disc 1 to disc 2 but the second disc has an AMAZING remix of "I Will Always Love You" that is probably now my favorite Whitney song.
By a reviewer (Stockton, CA)
This package is to be the best Greatest Hits Package ever produced. Listening to the album, the listener is invited on a voyage with this singer as she progresses from a young ingenue (afterall she was only 19 with the 1st album) to THE diva---the Jessye Norman of Pop/R&B music.
By dmorgan (Washington, DC)
Her voice is good but not great.
She doesn't have the angst and
spontaneity of Aretha Franklin
or the vocal beauty of Barbra
By a reviewer (Singapore)
Whitney is the greatest voice of all, and this is the greatest hits package of all!!! It is a must for anyone that enjoys classic music from the eighties to today!
By a reviewer (Wisconsin)
|the best of her|
lots of songs, very good sound
By inesmendia (Pamplona, Spain)
||don't fix it IT WASN'T BROKETN???|
Whitney was a great talent... All her songs were hits, thus the title of this CD. What idiot told them to remix every dance hit on the 2nd CD? And they're bad remixes, was PDiddy out on a yacht or something? All of the songs were orginallly good, no need for crappy remixes....
By roguedcds1 (dallas tx usa)
WHITNEY HOUSTON IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. I LOVE ALL OF HER BALLAD'S. THIS ALBUM HAS HER BEST LOVE SONG'S EVER.
By AMBER (GARY, INDIANA)
||are u guys serious?????|
how can people say whitney can't sing. She's by far the greatest singer. her voice is smooth and she has complete control over it.
By Richard latogpandbackagain (Los Angeles, CA)
What is this CD about? Alright she can sing, but hell no, she should'tn have been given a record deal. I don't know why some people are giving this CD five stars.
By a reviewer (Muskego, WI, USA)
||NUMBER ONE OF MY ALL TIME!|
THIS GREATEST HITS IS A COLLECTION THAT BRINGS MANY OF LIFES MEMORIES. WHITNEY WE WILL MISS YOU... YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS AND BE WITH US THROUGH YOUR MUSIC.
By RUBENG491 (LOS ANGELES,CA)
Whitney Houston has THE best voice in history. There's no one better, when it comes to singing R&B and Soul just like her mother, Cissy Houston.
By Dillon (Columbus, Ohio)
She's the best famele voice of all time, I love you your voice, God Bless Whitney.
By jlimache (Pueblo Libre, Lima - Peru.)
||All you could ask for...almost|
If you're a completist like myself, and you collect compilations but know their reputations for leaving off several of the artists' best hits, then you've probably seen the American version of this compilation by Whitney Houston, one of the greatest voices in the history of mankind.
By stormyweather980 (Hamilton, AL, USA)
This review is for a different format.
||This is how the CD should have been released in the U.S.|
Unlike CD2 on the U.S. Version, this version has the ORIGINAL versions of her upbeat hits - all that were missing from the U.S. Version.

21 CD (2011) Top Seller
Greatest Hits CD music Adele's 2009 debut album, 19, was a Grammy-winning smash hit that revealed the British singer/songwriter's knack for bittersweet soul and folk-infused love songs that brought to mind an infectious mix of Dusty Springfield and Terry Callier. The album earned her a ton of fans, and interest was high for the inevitable follow-up. In many ways, her sophomore album, the similarly age-appropriate-titled 21, is a continuation of the sounds and themes Adele was working with on 19. She is still the bluesy pop diva with a singer/songwriter's soul and seemingly bottomless capacity for heartbreak. The best thing the album does is to showcase Adele's titanic vocal ability, which -- more than a few times on 21 -- is simply spine-tingling. Last time around we got the gauzy, Callier-esque folk-soul ballad "Daydreamer" to slowly draw us into the album; here, Adele immediately injects us with the propulsive gospel fever-blues anthem "Rolling in the Deep." While the track certainly owes a heavy debt to the punk-blues of Beth Ditto and the Gossip, it is also ridiculously sexy and one of the best singles of any decade. Elsewhere, we get tracks like the blues-inflected Ryan Tedder co-write "Rumour Has It" and the old-school-style soul cut "He Won't Go," which are terrifically catchy, booty-shaking numbers and exactly the kind of songs you want and expect from Adele. Similarly enthralling is the centerpiece of the album, the mega-ballad showstopper "Take It All." Co-written by her "Chasing Pavements" partner Francis White, the song begins with Adele proclaiming "Didn't I give it all?" Delivered starkly at first with Adele set against simple piano accompaniment and later backed by a gospel choir, it's an instant-classic sort of song in the tradition of "The Rose," "And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going," and "All by Myself" that could stand over the years as a career landmark for the singer and a cathartic moment for fans who identify with their idol's Pyrrhic lovelorn persona. Ultimately, Adele does give us her all on 21, and for now that is enough. ~ Matt Collar

Greatest Hits 1970-2002 CDs (2002) Top Seller
Greatest Hits songs Initial pressings of this first edition contain a bonus disc.
Recorded between 1970 & 2002. Includes liner notes by Paul Gambaccini.
Greatest Hits 1970-2002 is a nearly flawless double-disc set commemorating Elton John's three-decade career. Disc one features what may arguably be John's most essential work: Seeing songs such as "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Candle in the Wind," and "Bennie and the Jets" -- not to mention "Your Song," "Rocket Man," and "Tiny Dancer" -- lined up back to back reaffirms just how diverse, and yet universal, his songwriting talent is. Disc two finds this talent maturing gracefully into the '80s, '90s, and beyond, touching on pop gems like "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," "I'm Still Standing," and "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues" as well as his Lion King classic "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" and the Aida duet "Written in the Stars" with LeAnn Rimes. The collection also finds room for the highlights of his most recent albums, including Made in England's "Believe" and "Blessed," The Big Picture's "Something About the Way You Look Tonight," and Songs from the West Coast's "This Train Don't Stop Here Anymore." For most casual fans, Greatest Hits 1970-2002 will replace the need for collections such as Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2, and Greatest Hits, Vol. 3, although these collections are still worthwhile as of-their-time retrospectives of John's work. ~ Heather Phares

In the early '80s, Collins took a break from the helm of Genesis to inaugurate a solo career that abandoned his group's art-rock agenda for a mainstream pop approach. In the ensuing years, the king of Nice Guy Pop established himself as one of the world's premier top 40 balladeers, as evidenced by the wall-to-wall hits that make up the balance of this appropriately titled collection. HITS walks the listener through the smooth, well-produced Collins hits that have worked their way into the collective consciousness of radio listeners (even casual ones) over the years. There are majestic power ballads ("I Wish It Would Rain") to light-hearted, infectious pop-funk ("Sussudio") and moody atmospheric pieces ("In the Air Tonight") HITS represents the full range of material this prolific performer has turned out over the course of his wildly successful career.

Greatest Hits CDs (2001)
Greatest Hits buy CD music Despite various tabloid-worthy tribulations and a rather flat cinematic debut in the musical bio-flick GLITTER, Britney and her fellow singing Mousketeers would do well to take notes on the galactic-sized success of '90s diva Mariah Carey. The two-disc GREATEST HITS bears witness to Carey's mind-boggling chart dominance and her remarkable five-octave range. Encompassing all the chart-toppers of 1998's #1'S compilation including "I Don't Wanna Cry," "Hero," and "One Sweet Day," this anthology traces the Long Islander's path from heartfelt balladeer ("Vision Of Love," "Love Takes Time") to hip-hop flavored dance-pop queen ("Fantasy," "Make It Happen").
Among Mariah's most impressive traits is her ability to seamlessly match up with a wide range of duet partners. When she's not digging into a Jackson 5 hit with Trey Lorenz ("I'll Be There") or playing Diana Ross to Lionel Richie's Luther Vandross (the '80s smash "Endless Love"), Carey is throwing down with Jay-Z ("Heartbreaker") and going toe-to-toe with fellow diva Whitney Houston ("When You Believe"). Other notable collaborations include a harmony-soaked meeting with Boyz II Men ("One Sweet Day"), a sweet-flowing Jermaine Dupri outing ("Sweetheart") and a Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis-produced summit with Joe and 98 Degrees ("Thank God I Found You").
Personnel includes: Mariah Carey (vocals); Trey Lorenz, Jermaine Dupri, Joe, Luther Vandross, 98 Degrees, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, Jay-Z, Lil' Bow Wow.
Producers include: Dave Hall, Walter Afanasieff, Mariah Carey, P. Diddy, Jimmy Jam.
