Biography

The careers of George Benson and his musical inspiration Nat King Cole share a similar arc, both establishing themselves first as highly respected instrumentalists before skyrocketing to crossover success once they began sharing their unforgettable voices with the world. Better known as a jazz pianist first, Nat King Cole’s major breakthrough came in 1943 when he added his melting ... Read more in Amazon's George Benson Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This 1998 compilation still appears to be the most comprehensive single CD greatest hits by George Benson, including all his charting UK and USA hits. There are plenty of others available but the single disc versions miss out tracks, and the double versions add many non-charting songs. This one has the lot, and for an older CD the audio quality is very good.

Once I had a vinyl hits album which was ok but the audio quality was lacklustre, which made me think I liked George's music less than I had expected from the radio. I thought his music disappointingly bland. No fear of that with this CD, the beautiful music and his voice shine through in all its full-length glory.

Outstanding for me are the songs "The Greatest Love of All" (more soulful than Whitney Houston's good cover version), Nature Boy, Give Me The Night, Lady Love Me (One More Time), 20/20, Turn Your Love Around, and Love X Love; but everything on here is pretty fantastic as one delicious song follows another, beautifully sung and produced.

If you want just one album by this soul supremo, I think this is a good choice.

My copy of the CD has the same catalogue number and artwork, but there are more tracks than the one listed on Amazon.co.uk:
1. Love x Love; 2. In Your Eyes; 3. Give Me The Night; 4. Never Give Up On A Good Thing; 5. Love Ballad; 6. Shiver; 7. Lady Love Me (One More Time); 8. This Masquerade; 9. Feel Like Making Love; 10. Nature Boy; 11. Turn Your Love Around; 12. 20/20; 13. You Are The Love Of My Life (Duet With Roberta Flack); 14. Inside Love (So Personal); 15. Being With You; 16. On Broadway (Live); 17. Breezin'; 18. The Greatest Love Of All.
There is no 'I Just Wanna Hang Around You'; 'Everything Must Change'; 'Kisses In The Moonlight'; or 'Lady Blue'.
My copy of the CD is published by Warner Music UK/Jive Records (1998).

Format: Audio CD
This CD is a testament showing what a great vocalist and guitarist George is. My favourites are 'In your eyes' and 'The Greatest Love of All'. His songs have the complete mix of blues, jazz and pop. Not only is his voice soulful, his guitar work sucks you into the songs!! A bit of disappointment that the CD does not contain some of his more modern work. 'Footprints in the Sand' would have been great. Can anyone tell me what George did fraom the late 80's to the early 90's. Did he disappear from the musical scene during that period??
