TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 7 September 2007
Released in 1997 this 2 CD compilation contains 40 of Pavarotti's most popular performances. The word 'special' should really be included before the front cover's mention of guest stars for the voices, albeit only one track each, of Cecilia Bartoli, Andrea Bocelli and the late Frank Sinatra. Their contributions make this a special album.

The album opens with 'Nessun Dorma', the piece which launched Pavarotti into worldwide popularity when it was used for the opening ceremony of the FIFA 1990 Football World Cup. Pavarotti's subsequent performance of this piece with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras (during The Three Tenors Tour) on the eve of the World Cup final probably widened the appreciation of the general public to opera music more than any other performer of his generation.

Cecilia Bartoli and Andrea Bocelli accompany Pavarotti on opera music by composers Mascagni and Morante, while Frank Sinatra helps teach Pavarotti the right way to sing `My Way'.

This is a fine example of Pavarotti's skill at crossing different musical genres while promoting, and succeeding in popularising, operatic music into general culture.

A great CD for Pavarotti fans and opera lovers.

The ultimate collection has all my all time favorite operatic areas and vintage Napolitan romantic songs, I have truly cherished in my life, with the maestro Pavarotti at his very best in singing them, with his tenor voice, being the best of all time!

HE'S BACK! This is a truly spiffing album! I was completely blown away! Pavarotti continues to be the most complete and absolutely superb opera singer around. As I was listening to it, my neigbours heard, and, even though they are of the rap kind, they came round to my house and listened, and they sheepishly admitted that they had been astounded by the marvelous music! Every single little bit is fantastic- congratulations Pavarotti! 10/10 WONDERFUL

there are few words that can describe the wonderful voice of Pavarotti. He will be sadly missed.
