Format: Audio CD
Several Linda compilations have been released over the years highlighting her remarkable vocal abilities, but this compilation differs in that it includes the complete Hacienda View album, produced by Mike Batt in 1979. That album has never been released on its own on CD, but it does reveal to the listener that Ms. Lewis can thrill when she sings at a lower register, just as she can when she hits those amazing high notes. For those who have the earlier Linda compilations, buy this for CD3 alone, and wallow in those ten tracks that made up the original Hacienda View alum. My family had been under strict instructions for 26 years now that I want Linda's Beggars And Kings played at my funeral. It's a song that is, lyrically, very appropriate for a send off and, thanks to Linda's gorgeous delivery, will reduce to tears even those who are looking forward to the food afterwards.

Linda Lewis, a singer with a high soprano voice, had her greatest commercial successes during the late seventies (although she still makes new albums occasionally) and it is from that period, during which she spent a lot of time in America, that this collection is compiled. Fans looking for Rock-a-doodle doo can find it on the Reprise collection covering her music of the early seventies.
Linda is best remembered in Britain for her stunning cover of It's in his kiss, which was her only top ten hit there. She also did an amazing cover of Winter wonderland (it's my favorite version of this song) Other covers include Save the last dance for me (Drifters), Remember the days of the old school yard (Cat Stevens), Come back and finish what you started (Gladys Knight) and This time I'll be sweeter. Linda's distinctive voice ensures that her versions are always worth a listen.
Linda sometimes wrote her own songs, several of which are featured on this collection. Despite their quality, none of them are famous. If you enjoy seventies pop/R+B music, you will enjoy the music of Linda Lewis.

This is a three cd set of Linda's time with arista and includes every track from "not a little girl anymore" and Hacienda view and every track bar "you came2 from the women overboard album...yet another british artist who very few folk know about.....check out her version of "may you never" and "my friend the sun"....there are other tracks too not on these three albums included here.....so do yourself a favour and get aquainted with Linda lewis.then you can check out her earlier stuff on the "reach for the truth" compilation

HASH(0x9a8ac018) out of 5 stars Fantastic - BUT one star removed because... 28 Nov. 2007
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...It inexcusably fails to include her UK hit single 'Baby I'm Yours' which was also culled from the same Arista/Ariola albums included here... Cynical omission? Possibly/probably - because if it were included, the collection would be a complete and definitive set for this era of her recording career. The only way around this glaring shortfall is to buy another supplementary compilation to own this essential track. This collection DOES include other material which is not available anywhere else on CD.
