I did not know her before buying this cd. Now, I've learned something new: She is a fabulous soul singer. Her voice is strong and gentle at the same time and the songs she sings are excellent. A very positive finding!

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By jelly 1960 TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 24 Mar 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
At £2.99 it seems mean to complain, but I have to say I found this selection somewhat less than platinum in range.
There are 20 tracks but they are selected exclusively from the period 1968 - 73 when Betty was on Atlantic. There are some great tracks and some that are a bit formulaic. My gripe is that the collection is nowhere near a "greatest hits" - it's just a selection from her early years. That wouldn't give cause for complaint if that was clearly stated on the label AND it was the best of her early stuff, but it isn't. The sleeve notes refer to her career taking off with Clean Up Woman (included) and continues by saying that Tonight Is The Night was another highlight. It was - but the track ain't on this CD! So not only is the collection confined to a brief period, it's not even the best of that period. Imagine buying the Beatles' greatest hits and finding that it went no further than She Love You.
I'd also like to see more detailed sleeve notes. There's some great musicianship on these tracks. I'd like to know who the guitarist is; who plays the bass, etc. Some information about the songwriters would have been nice too - most of the tracks are credited to the same two or three writers. Who are they; what else did they do?
I think if I was looking for some particular early tracks and found them on this CD, then this might satisfy, but if you are looking for Betty's Greatest Hits, this isn't it.

This is a great album. I keep coming back to it. Betty Wright is a fantastic singer.
