I bet you have forgotten how many great songs Gloria Estefan has had!

This CD is a fantastic collection of her biggest hits (yes, it does exclude songs like 'Here We Are' & 'Cuts Both Ways', which are beautiful songs) however, it DOES include 20 classic tracks from her 80's days of Dr Beat, Conga, Don't Wanna Lose You Now, Can't Stay Away From You, Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, etc to her 90's tracks Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Everlasting Love, Heaven's What I Feel & Reach plus her song 'Wrapped' from her highly underrated 2003 beautiful CD ''Unwrapped'' (check it out!).

Plus the huge hit from earlier this year remixed by Mylo ''Doctor Pressure''.

There is plenty here to jog your memory, remembering that her songs made a valuable contribution to pop music in the 80's, 90's and beyond.

I thought she was brilliant on the X Factor and the Paul O' Grady show this past week!

If you like her music, I highly recommend this CD as well as the recently released Essential Collection, also available on Amazon!

Format: Audio CD
Gloria was born in Cuba and Latin influences are strongly evident in some of her music, although at other times her music is much more in the American mainstream, with little evidence of her Latin roots. Thus, this compilation is a mix of Latin and mainstream pop music. Like many artists who have been successful internationally, Gloria was more successful in some countries than others and the big hits weren't always the same in each country. Anybody looking for the definitive American hits collection should look among Gloria's American compilations. I may do that one day, since some her best songs weren't big hits in Britain, and are therefore omitted from this compilation. Nevertheless, this is a fine compilation that provides a good overview of Gloria's career in the eighties and nineties.

Gloria had plenty of UK hits, though she was much more successful in her homeland. She never made the UK top five but came close a few times. Two hits (Dr Beat, Don't wanna lose you) made number six, one (Can't stay away from you) made number sever and one (1-2-3) made number nine. All of them are included here. She made number eight with Miami hit mix, but as the title suggests, it was actually a medley of earlier hits so its omission from this set is no great loss. Other notable UK hits featured here include Anything for you (a number ten hit), Bad boy, Rhythm is gonna get you, Oye mi canto, Hold me thrill me kiss me, Everlasting love (a nice cover, but I prefer the Love Affair version that made UK number one in the sixties, itself a cover of Robert Knight`s original), Reach (the 1996 Olympics theme), You'll be mine and Heaven's what I feel. All of them made the UK top 20 and are included here. One UK top 20 hit, Go away, lived up to its title by not appearing here.

A good trip down 80's music lane. Some good old hits that will make you boogie! There's even an added bonus track by Mylo (their sampled version of Dr Beat)

Some good tracks on this, some from my younger days and some new to me, all with Gloria's distinctive voice that still makes me turn up the radio when I hear a track come on. I like Rhythm is gonna get you, Don't let this moment end, Oye mi canto and the lovely lyrical Wrapped. Also some rather naff ones, but that's what albums are like. She's at her best singing in Spanish I think - really takes off and shows off a relaxed and incredibly musical style, blending into the Latin rhythms. The Miami Sound Machine are brilliant. Don't let this moment end sounds like they took everything in 80s disco and threw it in a big pot - love it - It's so OTT. Makes me want to explore her Spanish albums.

I bought Gloria Estefan's Greatest Hits volume 1 some years ago and was irritated to find that one of her hits 'It cuts both ways' was not featured, I really hate it when an artist releases a hits album and there is one, or two hits missing - why do they do this? So I was pleased to hear about her new hits album - only to find that, yet again, 'It cuts both ways' is missing, hence only 4 stars. She has a great voice, which is best shown off in her ballads. I hope her rather dull performance on X Factor tonight does not put people off from buying this, her voice, to me sounded a bit 'tired' and how about some new material?
