Unlike many tragic pop deaths, it was not the untimely demise in 1982 of Elis Regina that elevated her to the status of legend--in Brazil, her standing had long been assured. Even during life her gorgeous voice, infinitely dextrous and expressive, came to be regarded as the finest ever heard. Fascinac&atilda;o: The Very Best Of sets out to educate those who might wish to question such assertions. From the outset her enchanting chorus commands dynamic forms of the bossa nova and samba. Equally at home conveying anguish on the tearful lament of "Atràs da Porta" as she is imparting a laconic verve to "Corrida de Jangada", Regina's voice is an instrument of rare quality. Although this compilation cannot compare to her definitive work--Elis & Tom--the simple beauty of songs like "Como Nossa Pais" is still a joy to behold. --George Lees

Fascinating 9 Nov 1999
By David Mester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an essential collection of recordings from 1965-1978. "The Best of Elis Regina", as it says on the box, is an astonishing review of this great singer's range and development over those years. For one who is just beginning to fathom all of the available recordings, as I am, this collection is invaluable. And the music is wonderful. I believe she was one of the greatest singers there ever was. Her phrasing and musical instincts were without equal. This collection preserves her great artistry. I highly recommend it for any basic collection.

Queen of Musica Popular Brasileira 12 Sep 2000
By Erik Werkman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Elis Regina is in my opinion together with Clara Nunes THE greatest Brazilian singer of all times. They had an unrivalled power of heartfelt delivery in their singing. Even more remarkable about Elis Regina was her ability to handle a song by famous or less famous Brazilian MPB songwriters like Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento and João Bosco in such a way that it sounded like her own creation. This compilation is a very good one, I would say it is even slightly better than the other "A Arte De", although I have both of them to fill up the missing ones. As an introduction this one is hard to fault and it has the advantage of containing the unbelievably beautiful "O Rancho Da Goiabada" as a cherry on the cake. Don't forget to check out Clara Nunes as well.

great but uneven 15 Nov 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent collection of Elis' music. Her voice... well, you'll just have to listen. I have no idea what the heck she is saying and I'm absolutely entranced. I can play some of these tracks over and over and over. The fire and emotion, the intimacy, the great brazilian vowel sounds. Sometimes you get all of this in the same sentence. There are a couple of slow parts, like the medley towards the end, that I just skip over. The rest is great. Also try Elis and Tom and Acquarela do Brazil.
A Great Collection of music from Elis 30 Dec 2013
By S. Hart - Published on Amazon.com

Elis is the best female vocalist of all. She sings with so much emotion and honesty. Even though I don't understand all the words she sings in Portuguese, I get what she is saying. She can sing in many styles and is excellent in all of them. I wish she had lived longer but an grateful for her talent and joy her music has brought me.

If you like Elis Regina and pure Brazilian music, buy this CD. She's phenomenal on every single track! Her voice was perfect for samba.
