Another 5 album bargain - I even managed to pick this one up at a heavy discount - so value for money isn't an issue. This collection covers the period 1994-2000, and I guess shows the maturing post-car crash Gloria exercising her considerable talents in the variety of styles she's made her own over a lengthy career. Personally, I'm a total fan of the Miami Sound Machine, and I'm enraptured when Gloria brings together the Latin influences for the two Spanish language albums, of which Alma Caribena is just fantastic. It's only Gloria doing covers and standards (as in Hold Me), that I'm less sure about - to be honest her voice isn't that strong - and the individuality suffers a bit. Nevertheless, a truly exceptional addition to the Original Album Classics series.
