Format: Audio CD
Following the immaculate series of the expanded CD/DVD reissues of last year ("Heaven on earth", "Runaway horses", "Live your life be free", and "Real"), Edsel now releases 2 career-spanning anthologies of one of the most iconic figures in recent pop culture, the gorgeous Belinda Carlisle. "The Collection" features 17 hit singles from Belinda's solo career, plus new song "Sun" from 2013's retrospective release "Icon", and an entirely brand new song ("Goodbye just go"). And, for the very first time, a compilation of 18 promo videos is also presented on DVD. Featuring lyrics, artwork and new notes, all nicely packaged in a beautiful casebook edition, this is the most comprehensive greatest-hits package of hers so far, out of the many that have been released over the years. Previous compilations failed to present nothing but a list of hits and rather poor booklets. This time around everything has been well looked after, making justice to both Belinda's material and image (she has had stunning photos taken over the years being the beauty that she is!).

"The Anthology" collects 3 CDs and 2 DVDs of hits and rarities. The first 2 CDs are devoted to all singles released from her solo debut "Belinda" up to her last English studio album "A woman and a man". CD3 features 5 non-LP tracks (unfortunately, the much sought-after "In my wildest dreams" is not included - a master for the track is still untraceable), and a live set from Tokyo in 2013. DVD1 offers the promo videos to all singles, and DVD2 features promo material and live performances on various UK TV programs. Presented in a glossy 48-page 12"x12" hardback casebound book, featuring an array of photos, it is a true delight for any BC fan.

Firstly I am a fan of Belinda and have all her CDs, I bought this purley for the DVD of the videos to her songs. I have an old VHS "Runaway Videos" that is some 15-20 years old and it plays back in better quality than the videos on this DVD, I was expecting clean and crisp video, it looks more like they down loaded them from YouTube and not very vell at that.
Buy if you have never bought a BC CD before, her music is fantastic, if like me you are already a fan and are buying for the DVD then think twice.

Belinda Carlisle has had a fair few Greatest Hits or budget compliations over the years but they have always missed out her IRS years (on the UK compilations) or her later years (Real onwards on U.S. compilations). Finally, we have a compilation that spans all her English studio albums with a couple of new tracks added on. The quality of the songs are great and serve to remind people what a force Carlisle was in the world of pop.

The collection of songs is slightly intriguing - the majority of the hits are present along with some minor hits (interestingly the 1991 remix of Vision Of You which hit #71 is on here rather than the original) and the minor hits of La Luna (#38) and Runaway Horses (#40) are favoured over higher charting hits such as Lay Down Your Arms (#27) and Love In The Key Of C (#20), though the former two are bigger fan favourites and regular staples of Belinda's live sets.

The main drawback/ sticking point with this compilation is that despite the songs, Belinda only had 7 UK Top 10 hits and one of them is notably missing - Always Breaking My Heart - which seems rather careless (even if it is widely known that Carlisle no longer likes the song), particularly as 19 tracks is a rather odd number for a compilation.

Despite that, this is probably the best compilation released for the casual fan - just go and download Always Breaking My Heart afterwards and manually stick it into the album!

80's legend Belinda Carlisle is back with a greatest hits collection of her most famous back catalogue, an amazing voice and great rich pop songs there is nothing to not like about the songs chosen here, Summer Rain, We Want The Same Thing, Into Deep and of course Heaven Is A Place On Earth the classic legendary song that made Belinda who she is and a step on from the Go Go's group. 2 new tracks a thrown in for good measure Sun being one of them. Sit back or get up and dance either way enjoy the songs here on this album it's easy listening and fun.

I was happy with the collection mainly because as a collector of 80s music videos it had the DVD! I found some of the videos to be poorly re-mastered, surely in this day and age they can re-master from better sources such as the original negs (assuming they exist, of course). Having recently purchased the Howard Jones Video Collection.... those videos are older and are far more superior in terms of quality. Otherwise great collection!

I've been wanting to buy a Belinda Carlise collection for some time now and all the ones listed seemed to have a key track missing. This has them all, plus a DVD to relive all those 80's hits visually. There's one or two tracks that i don't care for but there are some that I'd never heard before that I absolutely love. Normally I buy best of's, play them one and then put them away until my next bout of nostalgia but this has been blasting from my speakers/headphones since it arrived. Worthy addition to anyone's collection.
