So pleased I bought this. Took me back to happier days. I have records and cassettes of GB, but thought about time I got his CD. So many great hits on here and I love it. If you love George Benson, you'll love this.

I am a big soul fan and there is a mix of soul, disco and jazz tracks. I loved George Benson in my youth and it was good to hear the tracks again. Favourites being Nature Boy, Never Give Up on a Good Thing, Give me the Night, Lady Love me one more time, Turn your love around.

George Benson is my favourite all time male soul/disco singer and this album is a Classic. All the hits are here and within minutes you are guaranteed to be singing and tapping your feet (if not outright dancing) to all those classic standards from the 80's and early 90's. Some of his great jazz tracks from an earlier era are here too which reminds us what a brillant guitarist he was too before he took to show-casing his wonderful smooth voice.

George Benson is the most versatile musician that I have ever listened, from my 15. George changed my style of enjoy music, by the time I went for the first time in a night club. At that moment, the Dj was playing "Love X Love", and was passion at first sight.
This amazing singer and guitar man goes from the standar jazz to the soul music with incredible versatility.
That new collection was a surprise for me, because I've never found an album from George whose CD had had his great hits remixed.

I recommend it for those that like of soulful and jazzy music.

How can anyone score this CD less than 5 stars is beyond me. This is a great collection of 2 CDs covering the very best of Benson - even 'Beyond The Sea' is included!

A fantastic affordable collection. The main highlights are 'Give Me The Night', 'On Broadway (6min edit)' and 'Beyond The Sea'. But there are some surprise mixes of 'Shiver' and '20/20'. I do like the inclusion of 'Kisses in the Moonlight' which is a soul classic of the 1980s and heavily underrated.

Having virtually all of George's albums on tape cassettes I thought it was time to get a CD for the car with all my favourites on.
This CD had a great collection of all the more know GB hits plus a few extras I hadn't surprisingly heard.
Would have only given this 5 stars if it contained everyone of my faves but it comes very close. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to reminise this smooth voice from their youth.
