The Greatest Hits [Japan]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Although The Greatest Hits is a double-disc package, only the first disc actually contains original versions of Houston's hit singles; the second disc, The Greatest Remixes, collects remixes new and old for hardcore fans. Of course, it would be impossible to fit all of Houston's 20-plus chart singles onto one disc, but that format still could have produced a fantastic and near-definitive collection.

The compilation includes three new tracks, including one duet apiece with Deborah Cox and Enrique Iglesias, and two hits make their first appearance on a Houston album: "One Moment in Time" (the 1988 Olympic theme) and "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful," a 1986 duet with Jermaine Jackson. Houston's Top 20 hit recording of "The Star-Spangled Banner," performed at Super Bowl XXV during the Gulf War, is tacked onto the remix disc as well. [The Japanese release shuffles the track sequencing and replaces a few songs.]
