If you do not have any of Lisa Stansfield's stuff, then this album is the one to get. She has a rich "earthy" voice full of light and shade. She puts herself into the music. To me she is like Al Green -in that they both leave part of themselves in their music.

Its easy to forget just how many good hits Lisa Stansfield has actually had, but with this hits collection all of the old classics can be re-visited.
Hits such as "This is the right time", "People hold on" and "All around the world" have real longevity. Unlike so many other songs of the early 90's they have really stood the test of time.
I'd definitely reccomend getting this album. Get it now as there's a bonus disc, which has a great remix version of "People hold on", which is mixed over the Tori Amos hit "Proffesional Widow". So come on then - BUY IT!!

This is an excellent collection from one of British music's most popular females of the second half of the 20th century. Success for Lisa has come all over the world, even in America!
Although Lisa Stansfield hasn't been as commercially successful as she was in the late '80s and early '90s, the later material is just as strong - with The Real Thing being a personal favourite of mine.
There are 17 reasons why you should buy this album, they are all great tracks and it's a real privelige to have so much great material on one album. The Queen/George Michael track sees all profits going to the AIDS charity set up in the name of Freddie Mercury, a very worthy cause, and just one more small incentive to help persuade you to buy this album.

Lisa did one really no female British artist has ever done by securing 4 platinum U.K. albums and 1 gold. And then 1 Double Platinum, 1 Platinum and 1 Gold album in the states. She even can boasted by being featured on the Best Selling Worldwide "Bodyguard" soundtrack with the Top 10 "Someday" hit.
From "Affection", Lisa posted no less than 5 hits led by the worldwide #1, "All Around the World" and the album went onto sell 5 million worldwide.
From "Real Love" she grabbed another solid 3 hits and 1 moderate effort led by her 3rd #1 American R&B hit, "All Woman".
And although, her American label stumbled in not releasing "So Natural", her U.K base gave her another 3 platinum smash with a barrel of beautiful videos shot around Europe.

i was shocked on how good this album is. only heard 'lets just call it love'( i love it) of the face up album, so didnt know to much about her. saw her pic on new album and though wow sexy bird. bought it, put it on, she has an amazing voice, the songs ' this is the right time ' 'so natural' show that this album has 2 sides to it. Fast and very funky, the slow and moving . i just wish she put on '8-3-1' a missed jem in my book.

Lisa Stansfield's characterful, soulful, elastic voice is full of emotion throughout this compilation. As soon as the disc starts there are songs here that bring back memories even if you wouldn't have been able to name them if asked for a list of her songs. It's a pity that she recorded at a time when a synthesised beat dominated most recordings because her singing deserves a full orchestration to back her. Despite this she ranges from jazz inspired tracks, through the vocal sensuality of "Time to Make You Mine" to the high class pop of "All Around the World". Altogether, a really enjoyable listen.

What can you say about this voice that hasnt already been said? From way way back when she was on Saturday Superstore, she was destined to be a star. She has more than proved her talent. her voice as smooth as treacle, weaves you into what can only be classed as soulful, classy and smooth.
From superb tracks such as "The Real Thing" right down to what in my eyes are the two tracks that epitomise the voice we have come to know as Lisa Stansfield "All Woman" and "All Around The World"
Lets hope this is only the first of many more superb greatest hits of

Well I have to admit to being a little biased here. Lisa Stansfield has been my favourite singer ever since I heard People Hold On with Coldcutt many years ago.

I believe it was called Northern Soul at the time, and Lisa became the Queen.

Over the years the raw edge that she had mellowed more towards ballads, and she created many classic hits like "Change" and "All Woman".

Sadly we dont see too much of her of late and her last album, Moments was a little disappointing.

However this album brings back all the classics, from her energy driven start "All around the World" "This is the Right Time", to the classic ballad singer.

If you have never heard Lisa sing then this is a great start point but please please look into her other albums and you will find songs that in my opinion are better than those that have not been included. Notably "Tenderly" and "A Little More Love" from the "Real Thing" album and the absolutely brilliant "You Cant deny it" from the early and I stillfeel her best "Affection " album.

She has been Queen of Northern Soul and Queen of my heart for many years.

I bought the album as I am going to see Lisa Stansfield in concert in June and couldn't remember what songs she sang!

The album is brilliant and I have listened to it several times. I bought the album second hand as it was cheaper. The CD was in fantastic condition as if it were new.

Great! I would recommend it to anyone.
