Greatest Hits [EMI/Capitol]

EMI's Greatest Hits compilation includes nine of Sheena Easton's first Top 40 singles, leaving out the inessential "You Could Have Been With Me" from 1981. The set goes up to 1985, including the number nine hit "Sugar Walls," the sexiest of Easton's tunes, which was, in fact, written by Prince under the name Alexander Nevermind. From her debut album, both "Morning Train" (her only number one pop single) and "Modern Girl" proclaim Easton's early pop exuberance, but her rendition of "The Wind Beneath My Wings," which failed to break the Top 40, is easily topped by Bette Midler's more renowned version. Her brisk advance into pop stardom is kept alive by "Almost Over You" and the radio-made "Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)," while "Strut" has Easton becoming more extroverted, un-shy, and sexually playful, as is the bulk of A Private Heaven, its parent album. Bob Seger's "We've Got Tonight," a duet with Kenny Rogers, is second only to "For Your Eyes Only" when it comes to her slower material, giving her a number one crossover hit on the country charts. With only 11 tracks, this hits package is brief, but for a concise collection of Easton's breadwinners, it manages to cover all of her popular favorites.
