Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Cohen
Over the last four decades, Nancy Wilson has perfected a hybrid of pop, jazz, and R&B vocalizing that has profoundly influenced such musical godchildren as Regina Belle, Anita Baker, and Phyllis Hyman. GREATEST HITS collects the best of Wilson's Columbia recordings, from "The Two of Us," a 1984 collaboration with pianist Ramsey Lewis, to "Hello Like Before" from 1997. This 16-song anthology also includes two early gems: Wilson's first major-label recording, "Guess Who I Saw Today," (1960), as well as her first hit, "Save Your Love For Me," a 1962 collaboration with saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. Chock-full of treasure, GREATEST HITS showcases Wilson's warm and ...

GREATEST HITS collects the best of Wilson's Columbia recordings, from "The Two of Us," a 1984 collaboration with pianist Ramsey Lewis, to "Hello Like Before" from 1997.

Chock-full of treasure, GREATEST HITS showcases Wilson's warm and earthy alto -- which can instantly transform itself from a sob to a scream -- on such romantic musings as "Love Won't Let Me Wait," "I Can't Make You Love Me"; Stephen Sondheim's "Loving You," sung with Peabo Bryson; and "When October Goes," a Johnny Mercer lyric set to music by Barry Manilow. This disc is a perfect opportunity to rediscover one of America's most accomplished song stylists.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
A "greatest hits" album, a concept pioneered by Columbia Records, is usually thought of as a compilation containing the single recordings by an artist that scored on the charts. In that sense, one might wonder what business Columbia had releasing a Nancy Wilson album called Greatest Hits since, in her 12-year tenure with the label, she had only placed four singles on the R&B charts, none of which reached the top half of the list. Those four recordings, "Love Won't Let Me Wait," "I Can't Make You Love Me," "Do You Still Dream About Me," and "Don't Ask My Neighbors," lead off the collection, and there is a previously unreleased "after hours mix" of "I Can't Make You Love Me" at the end. In between, there are two recordings that originally appeared on Capitol Records, Wilson's label from 1960 to 1980, one of which, "Save Your Love For Me" accompanied by the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, was her initial R&B chart hit. The rest of the tracks are drawn from Wilson's Columbia albums of the 1980s and '90s, and they include: "Wish You Were Here," a duet with James Ingram; Stephen Sondheim's "Loving You," a duet with Peabo Bryson; "The Two Of Us," from the album of that title, which was co-billed to Ramsey Lewis; and "Forbidden Lover," a duet with Carl Anderson. It all adds up to a compilation of lush, jazz-tinged R&B love songs expressively rendered by Wilson. It just doesn't add up to a greatest hits album.

    Nancy Wilson Greatest Hits

    In Keeping with the Nancy Wilson tradition, Nancy Wilson Greatest Hits are just another example, of why Nancy is the last voice of The Golden Era. The Album which, is a compilation of Nancy's association with Columbia Records further validates why this supreme Song Stylist still dazzles us.. While it can be argued that these songs were not neccessarily top hits, it does demonstrate that we still have in our presence a true singer of songs. This Greatest hit collections contains some of the best song writting from, Loving You(duet/w Pebo Bryson) by Stephen Soundheim to When October Goes, Lyrics, by the late Johnny Mercer. Our Great Lady of Song takes us on a Journey with not only some of the best writers in the music Industry, but a voice that changes from soft and tantilizing to quicksilver and full of emotion. Listen as this Great Lady Of Song lifts us off the ground and sends us soaring through the clouds.
