Naturally quite a few of the songs on this CD (in fact 11 of the 20 tracks on disc 1) are the same as Samantha's previous official greatest hits package (Greatest Hits - 1992). It contains all the biggest hits from that album, including many iconic numbers, such as 'Touch Me (I Want Your Body)', 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now', 'Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)' and 'Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)'.
The rest of the album consist of remixes of some of these songs as well previously unreleased tracks recorded with Stock Aitken Waterman. This is the first time these songs have been together on one disc - and so, this alone is a very good reason to buy this album.
Unfortunately lower charting singles like '(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But The Pants Stay On', 'Let Me Be Free', 'All I Wanna Do...', 'Spirit Of America' and 'Just One Night' to name a few, are completely absent from this compilation, thus only 4 stars. On the positive side we get 'I'm All You Need' and 'True Devotion' which were not featured on the previous collection, two of Sam's best ever singles in my opinion.
I would still recommend `Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now` to any music fan, as it is a clear explanation of why Samantha Fox was one of the most successful singers on both sides of the Atlantic in the 80s. A true pop star!
Sam Fox found fame in the early 80's as a topless Page 3 model for The Sun newspaper joining the ranks of Linda Lusardi, Jo Guest and Anne Widdicombe. International fame soon followed however Sam harbored a dark secret that could potentially wreck her burgeoning career. Born Samuel Winston Fox, Sam was a pre-op transsexual and had fathered 2 children with TV weathergirl , Wincey Willis. Yet this secret would remain intact for a further 10 years whilst Sam concentrated on her pop career. Having co-wrote `Do They Know Its Christmas?' with Bob Geldof and Henry Kelly, Sam was quick to secure her own record deal. She hit immediate pay dirt with her signature song `Touch Me' which was a smash hit in residential homes, category `A' Prisons and has since become the 7th most requested songs at funerals in the UK. Quick to follow up on `Touch Me's success, the hits followed thick and fast, `Do Ya Do Ya' (initially offered to but turned down by alternative comedians `Cannon & Ball'), `I'm All You Need' (a duet with `Zammo' from Grange Hill) and `Naughty Girls (Need Love To)' the video for which depicted Sam mud wrestling with several cast members of comedy classic `The Desmonds' was banned by MTV. Sam was by now unstoppable and to solidify this success came the pop juggernaut `Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now', the fruits of her sessions with used car salesmen Stock Aitken and Waterman.Read more ›
