collection, strategically released to remind the world of the musical greatness of Moyet before the release of her fifth solo album in early 2002 (her first in nearly nine years) and also to coincide with her West End stage debut in "Chicago", once again highlights why Moyet is still one of Britain's best loved divas. The classic tracks are still on here but compared to her number one 1995 anthology Singles
, there are some interesting additions and erasures. "Only You" and "Situation" two of her better known tracks with Vince Clarke (Yazoo), have been dropped in favour of the equally influential "Don't Go", but also the rather unfortunate choice of "Winter Kills". "Our Colander Eyes" is an upbeat taster of forthcoming new material, and "Blue" the bubbly Kirsty MacColl-style theme from BBC TV's "Playing the Field" is also featured. Moyet's passionate 1987 cover of "Ne Me Quitte Pas", and her live recording of "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" subtly conclude this "must-have" collection. --John Galilee
Import-only compilation from the British Pop and Soul vocalist best known for being the singing half of Synthpop duo Yazoo (or Yaz, as they are known in the U.S.). When Yazoo split after their sophomore album, Moyet continued as a solo act, releasing a handful of albums and some extraordinary singles. This collection contains all the tracks originally available on her Singles Collection and adds six more: Dont Go, Winter Kills, Blue, Our Colander Eyes, Ne Me Quitte Pas and There Are Worse Things I Could Do. With a Yazoo reunion in 2008, interest in all things Alison Moyet is at an all-time high. 20 tracks in all. Sony.
