Product Description

BBC Review

Described by Tony Bennett as “the best singer of her generation,” k.d. lang is everything the top-selling big-haired divas aren’t. Whereas Whitney or Celine or Leona use 20 syllables when one would do, huffing and puffing to let the people in Row Z know they’re emoting, lang’s vocal performances are models of economy and grace. Her warm tones are pure yet never bland, laced with organic trails of grit and smoke. She doesn’t need to wave her arms about and yodel: once she hits a note, it stays hit. Hearing her after, say, Florence Welch is like leaving a farmyard full of buffaloes in galoshes to spend time in a Japanese Zen garden.   

Her 25-year recording career is hereby celebrated with her first career retrospective. There’s a two-CD best of, or a four-disc deluxe package which adds rarities and unreleased live tracks and a DVD of videos and live footage. The two-disc version gives you a lovely selection, balanced between minor hits and eyebrow-raising collaborations, always avoiding the cheese of ‘country’.

It’s an indication of the esteem in which fellow singers hold this woman that she’s duetted with giants of the vocal arts like Bennett and Roy Orbison, as well as Elton John. Her airy, eerie piece with fellow Canadian Jane Siberry, Calling All Angels, is exquisitely light of touch. She may be the only person alive who could have teamed up with Orbison for Crying and not ruined it, or shared Moonglow with Bennett with such unflashy ease.

Constant Craving remains one of the great pining torch songs of its era (oddly, the guitars now sound a bit Johnny Marr), while Miss Chatelaine enjoys melodic twists that defy analysis. The old Hollies chestnut The Air That I Breathe and Neil Young’s Helpless are rendered so astutely you wonder how Susan Boyle might sound if produced by Eno. 

Then there are not one but two takes on Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. If any song has been devalued and misinterpreted in recent years, it’s this. Yet lang, of course, by understating it, breathes it back to life. More should learn this lang-uage. --Chris Roberts

4.0 out of 5 stars A good collection for old and new fans 8 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Compiliation albums are always tricky things... This collection gets together some of k.d's greatest moments from her back catalogue and a few new songs and songs not on any of her other albums. The collection showcases her amazing voice perfectly across a wide range of orginal material and covers. We all have our favourites and obviously you can't please everyone. There's not much evidence her of her country beginnings here. No "Pine and Stew" or her amazing version of "Three Cigarettes In An Ashtray", just one song by Chris Isaak, "Western Stars" from the Shadowland LP. It also could showcase a bit more diversity in her work by including the danceable "Just Keep Me Moving" from Even Cowgirls Get The Blues and her amazingly oft overlooked Bond theme, "Surrender" from Tomorrow Never Dies. The album is a great introduction and companion to her existing cannon of work, but does leave you wanting more...which is the whole point I suppose!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Class 19 Feb 2010
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have always liked a number of K.D Lang's songs but never got round to buying any of her albums. This collection was the perfect opportunity for someone like me to catch up with a wide range of her output and to see what I have been missing.
Apparently I have been missing a lot as this is a superb collection with a number of outstanding songs delivered by a true vocal talent. High point for me was her version of "The air that I breathe", but then there are a lot of high points. A perfect blend of her original work and some awesome covers, this really is an album worth getting. What a voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars KD Lang Has The Purest Voice In Music 6 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
KD Lang arguably has the most pure and ethereal vocals in the music industry. She can wondrously sing country, ballads, jazz and torch music. Some of her songs literally send enthralled shivers up listeners spines. Recollection is loaded with fantastic songs. "Trail Of Broken Hearts" is a melancholic marvel. "Constant Craving" remains an awesome vocal performance. Her rendition of "Air That I Breathe" is amazing. "Helpless" is an astoundingly brilliant rendition of a Neil Young song. "The Valley" is incredibly emotive and gorgeous. Her rendition of the iconic Leonard Cowen's "Hallelujah" is indeed heavenly. "Crying" with Roy Orbison is one of the greatest vocal performamnces in history. "Calling All Angels" with Canada's Jane Siberry is refined perfection.

KD Lang can do it all evidenced by her charming version of the Beatles "Golden Slumbers." Words are unable to describe the grandeur and luster of KD Lang's boundlessly talented vocals. Recollection is a must have CD. Every song is vintage.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lasting artist 9 Jun 2011
By Hank
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Maybe I haven't always understood her interpretation of songs but in this collection I have learned the diversity of her talents. She doesn't need a bunch of dancers to detract from the bum notes as there aren't any and as for image - who cares - she is great
