5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Timi 16 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
Poor Timi Yuro. Hers was the voice that should have transfixed a generation and gone on to become legend. Timi's rich, incredible voice seemed destined never to become as well known as many of her contemporaries. Partially this was due to the unclassifiable nature of her sound, upon hearing her songs listeners in the 60's (and today I guess) were often surprised to discover that she in fact was not a man, and also not black. As it says in the encyclopedic liner notes of the CD "...had Timi Yuro been born black, you'd never have heard of Aretha Franklin." Maybe that's going a little far but it seems unjust that Timi didn't have a greater impact in the world of popular music.
Her first single "Hurt" recorded when she was only twenty years old displays a depth and maturity that is still astonishing. This CD also captures the wonderful, Phil Spector produced, "What's a Matter Baby" which simply has to be heard to be believed. Apart from the well known "Hurt" which unfortunately became the template for much of the music she ended up recording there is a greater great depth of music on this CD, including some of her country numbers "If You've Got Leaving On Your Mind" and "Gotta Travel On" and there's also fantastic songs such as "Something Bad On My Mind" and the stomping "Insult To Injury". The Lost Voice of Soul! is tremendous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strongest Timi compilation available 13 July 2002
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Timi will be forever remembered for Hurt, a record which has often been covered (including by Juice Newton, who had an American country number one hit with it, and Elvis), but never bettered. You will find it on any Timi compilation (except The voice that got away, a companion volume to this CD) but Timi deserves to be remembered for much more, as this collection shows. Even 26 tracks does not cover everything worthwhile, but there's another 26 on The voice that got away, for those who want to explore further.
Perhaps Timi was best at the tearjerkers like Hurt, but it is a measure of her brilliance that she did a wide variety of songs really well. This collection includes a lot of mainstream pop, some more R+B, amd even some country songs. It would be a good idea if a record company would issue a separate compilation of her country recordings, just as has been done for Ray Charles and others. As it is, they are sandwiched between all the other stuff, but that's a minor criticism.
This is an outstanding compilation of one of the finest - and most under-rated - singers of the sixties (or any era, come to that).

5.0 out of 5 stars This lady was just wasted 30 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
This lady probably had one of the most powerful voices ever to be recorded. Forget Tima Turner and the like, as Timi outshone them all. She seemed almost to "live" each song, and the emotion in her wonderful voice was second to none.
Why she was never a huge star is beyond me. Perhaps she was badly promoted? Who knows? I believe Liberty records were unaware of just how great an artiste she was, and just didn't know what to do with her. They were not used to handling a singer like Timi, and they should have given her free reign to record what she wanted to record.If she had been signed to Stax or Motown she would have got the recognition she deserved, and also would have had the material offered to her that she liked. Once known, she then could have gone wherever she liked, and chosen the records to be released herself.
This album covers about six years of her work,and is a real gem .She must have suffered some terrible pain in her life to be able to give us her all when she sang. She was a singer that you had to sit and listen to. She wasn't background music or a dancey type singer. If you want to hear a singer who sang her heart out and have never heard her, I envy you as you are in for a treat. Mike Rossiter UK

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Majestic Voice!! 1 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
What a fabulous singer! Every song in this CD is excellent, but one song stands out for me. The song "I Know (I Love You)" really gets to me. It touches me more deeply than any other song I've ever heard. Timi makes it sound so beautiful and heavenly. She sings it with a lot of emotion and passion. In my opinion, Timi Yuro deserves to be called "the white queen of soul". Timi is in a class by herself!
