This is one of the most incredible albums by one of the world's most incredible artists. I hadn't heard a lot of his music but I decided to go and see the film as it had had such good reviews and it made me cry so much it was embarrassing to be in public! However it was such a moving and breath taking film that nobody could stop a few tears forming in their eyes... and this CD is exactly the same. It sums up his whole life and there is even a live performance of Georgia on my Mind which is beautiful. I give this 5/5 easily as it is a timeless classic of a brilliant, musical genius. Young or old, anybody will love this CD - I'm 13 and love it, even if it's not the stereotypical music people my age listen to, it's the magic of his songwriting and voice that captivated me and i expect you will love this CD too. it's got all his biggest hits on it and you have to have it in your collection. BUY IT!
