Product Description

CD Description

Acclaimed singer Alison Moyet marks her incredible three-decade spanning career with the release of The Best Of Alison Moyet. The Best Of Alison Moyet is a true reflection of the extraordinary music produced by Alison Moyet over the last 25 years and a testament to the diversity of her talents. The songs included on the album form a definitive representation of her stunning and vivacious vocal style and range, from subtle blues and bombastic soul to big pop chart hits. The Top 10 singles "All Cried Out", "Love Resurrection", "Invisible" and "Is This Love" are all included on this 20 track anthology, as are the heartbreakingly honest ballad "This House" and the modern soul of "Hoodoo". Timeless cover versions of "That Ole Devil Called Love" and "Love Letters", which both cracked the Top 5 upon release in 1985 and 1987 respectively, and "Windmills Of Your Mind" and "Almost Blue" from 2004’s Voice album, perfectly demonstrate the smoky range of Alison’s blues vocals, are all included on this comprehensive collection of solo work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great celebration of 25 year in the Business 22 Oct 2009
By SWRF76
Format:Audio CD
This was a surprise release for me along with the tour! But can honestly say what a great release, the 2nd disc adds something unique that never really happens with greatest hits. A lot of the older tracks are redone as Alison would have liked to have record them, but with a feel of how they now fit into her live set and style.

Top marks to Sony too....they saw sense and had Alison involved in this great release (after years of poor support of her!!!). Her voice is fab as ever, but for those who prefer the originals of the older hits you can listen to disc 1. If anything the remasters of the tracks are much clearer than the originals. As Alison says in the notes of the cd sleeve, many of more recent tracks (Should I Feel that its Over, More, One More Time) etc will hopefully make new fans venture to the 'mother' albums like Hometime, Voice or The Turn. Many great Alison tracks exist on these albums and should not be missed.

Great job Alison...whens the next studio album!!

4.0 out of 5 stars REFLECTIONS OF AN INCREDIBLE VOICE 9 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
25 years have skipped merrily away since the launch of Alison classic solo album 'Alf' and her label Sony Music has compiled a 'Best of' taking tracks from her seven solo albums. Alison never lost the ability to explore and there is many genres on here from Pop, Soul, R&B, Electronica, Jazz and the Blues.

Standout tracks include Should I Feel That It's Over from her Mercury nominated 2002 album 'Hometime', Windmills Of Your Mind from 2004 album 'Voice', This House from 1991 album 'Hoodoo' and of course all the hits from 'Alf' and the wonderfully poppy 'Raindancing'! The hits are included here such as: All Cried Out, Invisible, Love Reseurrection, Is This Love?, Love Letters, That Ole Devil Called Love, This House, Whispering Your Name and Ordinary Girl. Worth checking out is acoustic version of 'Whispering Your Name' Awesome!

My only gripe is I would have liked to have seen the single 'Do You Ever Wonder' a fabulous song by Carlton McCarthy and a single from the 'Hometime' album represented here instead of 'More' and 'Yesterday's Flame' and the inclusion of 'If You Don't Come Back To Me' from 'Hometime'. In addition the wonderful cover of 'Alfie' from the album 'Voice' and the single version of the classic 'For You Only from the debut album 'Alf' this was released throughout Europe in 1985 but disappointly is not included here.

Worth checking out are 'Anytime At All', 'The Man in The Wings', 'Sharpest Corner Hollow' and glorious 'Home' for Alison 2007 album 'The Turn'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alison 's voice just gets better with age. 30 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
The delux version is just heart warming. Alison's re-working of some of her older tracks is simply sublime. Midnight (Upstairs at Eric's, Yazoo's first album)this was the first song Alison wrote and while I love the original, the current version is my favourite at the moment and I can't stop playing it; I am hooked on the upbeat chorus. Ordinary Girl, Is this love and All cried out are like new songs. Still catching up with the rest.
As we have always known Alison Moyet has a gift, which is her wonderful voice, which just keeps getting better and better; Alison is an icon of our time and may she reign for another 25 years and dosen't she look georgous!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Have a listen! 14 Nov 2009
By Muso
Format:Audio CD
I think this album reminds everyone that the limelight shirking Alison Moyet is the best female vocalist the UK has had in 25 years. Makes X Factor look rather stupid!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE VOICE OF A GENERATION - ALISON MOYET 17 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
It is a testament to the unique and gifted talents of Alison Moyet that 25 years on we are still captivated by her mesmerising VOICE. From the opening track, the sublime solo debut "Love Resurrection" with it's foot firmly on the dancefloor to the closing classic "One More Time" from Alison's 2007 album " The Turn" the listener is taking through many genres of music over this stunning collection of songs held together by that magnificent VOICE.

Why this woman is not an National Icon I do not understand as she possesses the most captivating and unique voice to ever come out of the UK. That voice goes from electronica, pop, rock, blues and soul to jazz with effortless ease.

Personal favourites include: Is This Love? (THE NEW LIVE VERSION THIS SHOULD BE A SINGLE. ARE YOU LISTENING SONY UK?), Ordinary Girl (Live), Should I Feel That It's Over, Whispering Your Name, This House, Windmills Of Your Mind, One More Time (FROM 2007 ALBUM "THE TURN"). It goes without saying I love the songs from the solo debut "Alf" and they thankfully are lncluded in this comprehensive collection along with songs from the chripy pop period of "Raindancing".

Buy this excellent record if you want to have the finest female singer of our generation in your record collection whom is also blessed as a great lyricist.

Here's to the next 25 years Alison - you are sounding and looking fabulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's only one Alison Moyet 10 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
There is only one Alison Moyet, no other singer sounds like her, the voice is unmistakable. CD one covers all the well known songs that she has sung over the years while CD two has reinterpretations of some of her best known songs plus a few others for good measure. This is a welcome look back at Alison's 25 years in the business and I hope she carries on for another 25.
