5.0 out of 5 stars Seventies soul group popular in Britain 20 Dec 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Looking at their chart history, it seems that Tavares were more popular in Britain, where they had four top ten pop hits, than their American homeland, where they had just one. Exactly why this should be so is not clear to me, but although Tavares were by no means the most important group of their era, they recorded some great songs.
This compilation includes all except one of their American top forty pop hits (Remember what I told you) and most of their ten UK hits, including a remix of Heaven must be missing an angel but not the original. While I would have preferred the original, the difference is not as dramatic as it might have been.
Heaven must be missing an angel, Don't take away the music, Whodunit and More than a woman (a track from the Saturday night fever soundtrack) were all UK top ten hits that made the American top forty pop chart. It only takes a minute was their only American top ten pop hit – it was a minor UK hit in 1986 having missed the chart, or maybe not been released, back in the seventies.
The mighty power of love (top thirty) and One step away (top twenty) are other UK hits included here, while Check it out was an American top forty pop hit. Other tracks include a cover of the Hall and Oates classic She's gone.
If you are interested in seventies soul music, Tavares are definitely worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 18 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've bought this a s a stocking filler for my lovely other half for Christmas. We went to see a concert with Tavares in not too long ago here in Liverpool and they were still brilliant although a few of them have gone a little stiff over the years! They've been going since 1959 so that can be well forgiven I think!

This is a great cd with the Tavares songs we all love and know including More Than a Woman, Whodunnit, Don't take away the Music and of course Heaven Must be Missing an Angel! Brilliant. They started out as 'Chubby and the Turnpikes' They were even an opening act for The Jackson 5 in the 70's so you know they were great.

Great cd that'll have you dancing away with your lovely other half in no time! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Tavares - Greatest Hits? 27 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
Bought this on vinyl record years ago, so thought I would update to CD format.
All the hits you would expect from the brothers are only disappointment though is the eighties remix version of 'Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel'. Would have been good to also include the original version.
So many classic tracks have fallen victim to the drum machines of the eighties.............and sound so dated and lifeless.

Great compilation but as another reviewer has mentioned " Heaven must be missing an Angel" has been molested! The problem with this remix version is that it is "over percussioned" to the extent that at times it sounds like something from the Rio Carnival !

4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless 2 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great collection of timeless evergreen classics, from the days when singers relied on singing ability and not studio technology to sound good!

I love all the tracks on here, but was really disappointed to find that what is arguably Tavares best known song, "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel" is not included. Well at least the original isn't included, what is offered in its place is perhaps one of the most dreadful, tacky 80's re-mixes I have heard. It sounded like Stock, Aitken and Waterman's collective mothers had been let loose in the studio!!!

I would love to know who makes the decision to include this kind of garbage on an otherwise great collection. Re-mixes are usually added to albums as bonus tracks, not replacements for the original. I still love the rest of the music though, but shame on EMI Gold for this travesty of taste!!!

Like some of the more up tempo tracks but some are a bit cheesy which is typical of the era. Growing on me.
