5.0 out of 5 stars Blistering, 20 Oct 2012

This review is from: The Whole Affair: The Very Best Of Mary Coughlan (Audio CD)
I absolutely agree with the other reviewer, this is a great album. I am a fan of all Coughlan's albums and have bought them all over the past couple of decades. This 'best of' package provides well over an hours worth of tracks from all of her albums, hand picked by the artist herself. So why would someone who already has all of her albums buy this one. Firstly it has 20 of her best songs (actually 21 as CD1 contains a track which isn't listed). secondly, and for me most importantly the second CD of this set is a collection of live tracks, many of which she never recorded in the studio. Mary Coughlan is also one of those artists who, whilst excellent in the studio actually performs at an even higher level when in front of an audience. This woman has often been compared with Billie Holiday, sometimes for the wrong reasons (drug and alcohol problems) but also for the right reasons, a great and honest performer who sings from the heart. A cracking collection, over two hours worth of brilliance for under a tenner. If you get the chance go to see her live, she's stunning.

For anybody who hasn't heard of Mary Coughlan buy this - the range and emotion in her voice puts her in a class of her own, in particular the live disc captures everything good about great singers. Been lucky to see her several times and she has never disppointed - her book is worth a read as well

This is an excellent compilation CD that is beautifully packaged. The first disc is just superb and the live disc shows why this artist is a legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish "chanteuse" at her best, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Whole Affair: The Very Best Of Mary Coughlan (Audio CD)
Lierally a best of collection, although you might find the odd surprising omission. The second disc, made up of live material, whilst not as good as seeing the lady in concert, is a fine reminder of the way she makes a song her own. Absolutely brilliant!
