Russell Watson has come a long way since his working-mens club days. He's taken some stick over the years, and it's true he has sometimes come over as arrogant, but anyone who saw him on Just the Two of us on BBC1 over the last couple of weeks saw a new Russell Watson - delivering faultess vocals over almost every musical genre, plus offering terrific and selfless support to an obviously nervy Sian Reeves. His duets with Alexander O'Neal and Curtis Stigers were pro-highlights. So it's timely that this collection comes out now to remind people who already knew him and to introduce him to a whole new generation of fans. In his area of music, and it's a wide area, there is no UK male singer to match him today, he really stands alongside the other RW - Robbie Williams on the pop/rock side as one of our two great music entertainers.
On this collection there are 20 cuts including two new ones, Can't help falling in love and I have nothing (from the Bodyguard). You get great Morricone - his version of the Mission theme is the best ever made, plus a superb 'You raise me up', some great standards from Neapolitan and opera, and that track: the famous Barcelona with Shaun Ryder, that first launched him. A great introduction to a great home-grown singer/entertainer.

Full to bursting of all your Russell favourites,this CD is a must have for all fans,old and new,of Russell Watson.Just like looking at an old photograph album,this CD will bring back memories of all your favourite moments.From the enticing Nella Fantasia(1st song-1st album)to the wonderful Nessun Dorma(the BIG finish)and including two'bonus'tracks(The Elvis classic "Can't Help Falling In Love" and Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing")This is surely an album to make you smile and you don't have to be a Russell Watson fan to enjoy it!

This CD compilation is great! Although I have Russell's other CD's, it is always a pleasure to listen some of my favourite songs all on one CD. As usual, Russell doesn't disappoint and his voice is .... what can you say - wonderful! Well worth the buy and his version of "You Raise Me Up" is my favourite. Continue Russell - look forward to your next album!

Format: Audio CD
In the first decade of the new millennium, Russell Watson became one of Britain's most successful classical crossover singers. He started, as many aspiring singers do, by playing clubs in his local area (in his case, Manchester) but his big came from an unexpected source. Martin Edwards, then chairman of Manchester United, invited him to sing at Old Trafford stadium. I'm assuming that this was in the half-time interval during a match, but I don't know the details. Since then, Russell has performed for millions of fans including royalty and presidents. Listening to this compilation of Russell's music, it's easy to understand why he has so many fans. Russell's appeal goes way beyond classical music (and that will inevitably alienate classical purists) as is proved by his success in the classical charts as well as the pop charts.

The songs here include The prayer (with Lulu - an unlikely pairing that works brilliantly), Funiculi Funicala (a classical standard), O sole me (an even more famous classical standard), Someone like you (with Faye Tozer - this became a British top ten pop hit), Nothing scared (a song for Kirsty), Nessun Dorma (another famous classical standard), Barcelona (with Shaun Ryder - a cover of the Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe duet that later became associated with the 1992 Olympics) and Can't help falling in love (a cover of an Elvis Presley hit). You'll recognize other familiar songs too, but Russell has such a superb voice that it's worth hearing his versions.

As long as classical music can produce singers of the calibre of Russell Watson, it will continue to attract new fans. I'm sure that there are plenty of people who only started taking an interest in the music because of Russell and other crossover songs, some of those new fans later becoming interested in more traditional sounds. This compilation provides an excellent introduction to Russell's music.

First off, I am a big fan of all the "Popera" singers...Andrea, Josh, Il Divo, Mario & Vittorio...Yet for me Russell has the best pop/classical voice in the group!!! This is a great collection of songs and the two new addtions are wonderful, Russell can sing anything and sing it great!!!! I personally can't wait to see what the future brings from the talented Mr. Watson!!!

Having all Russell's CD, this is definitely the Ultimate. I feel the content is wonderful, the last 2 extra songs give his voice a different aspect. The Elvis song he does so well, though the Whitney Houston song I will have to listen to again.
The drum beat in the background spoils it a little. Whoever picked the tracks certainly picked the right ones.
My favourite has to be Miserere, the rest fall into line. Oh I think it is just amazing, all of the CD.
I am quite sure this CD will bring him more appreciation and lots more fans.

Listening to this album those who know Russell Watson well, and those who have just discovered him will be very pleased with this.. His `Ultimate Collection`.20 tracks, 18, chosen from Russell`s previous 4 albums,a very nice mix of ballads like `You Raise Me Up`,duets with Lulu and Shaun Ryder, to the very dramatic and rousing `Il Gladiatore` and of course `Nessun Dorma`.And of course the crowd pleasing favourites `O Solo Mio`, `Volare` and Funiculi Funicula` to name a few.
also there are two bonus tracks as well Whitney Houstons`s classic `I Have Nothing` gets the Watson treatment and very nicely too I must say it is different from her version but nonetheless very pleasing indeed.Also `Can`t Help Falling In Love`,Russell`s take on the song is simply beautiful and I can see will become a favourite amongst his fans.
All in all a wonderful album,his fifth,all I can say is if you like Russell you`ll love this!!Certainly one for your CD colection.
