Saturday Night Fever launched her biggest hit, "If I Can't Have You," which branded her as a one-hit wonder. The Best of Yvonne Elliman doesn't really disprove that -- there's a lot of filler here, even if it culls 16 highlights from her entire ...

The Best of Yvonne Elliman doesn't really disprove that -- there's a lot of filler here, even if it culls 16 highlights from her entire career -- but it does demonstrate that she possessed a pleasant, professional voice and did make several enjoyable pop/disco records, which happened to be her singles.
