By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 13 Jun. 2005
Format: Audio CD
Laura Branigan was a wonderful singer with a powerful voice who recorded great songs but her overall record suggests that she should have been more successful than she actually was. For example, she had an American top thirty hit with Power of love (the Jennifer Rush classic) but Celine Dion later had a much bigger hit with it. Laura also had a big American hit with How am I supposed to live without your love, but Michael Bolton (who co-wrote the song before he was famous) later had an American number on with it after he became a successful singer in his own right.
Nevertheless, Laura was very good at finding songs that suited her style, often looking to Europe for material. Her biggest hit, Gloria, began life as an Italian song (by Umberto Tozzi). Laura had a British and American top ten hit with it, peaking at two in America. Laura had a further American top ten hit with Solitaire - not a cover of the Neil Sedaka / Carpenters / Andy Williams seventies classic, but another European song translated into English. There are many other fine songs here but most were only minor American hits. Laura eventually focused on acting rather than singing before succumbing to cancer early in the new millennium.
Other highlights here include How can I help you say goodbye (a tender ballad written by the brilliant but obscure Karen Taylor-Good), Show me heaver (a cover of the Maria McKee classic) and Dim all the lights (a Donna Summer song).
There are more recent compilations with improved sound quality, but the sound here is plenty good enough for me, and all the essential Laura Branigan tracks are here.

Unfortunately not too much has been heard of the talanted Ms. Branigan for a while. This 'Best Of' CD has the bonus of 2 new tracks along with a good selection of hits from all her past albums. The new songs showcase Laura's outstanding vocals especially on the cover of Maria Mckee's 'Show me Heaven'. Also covered is Donna Summers disco classic 'Dim all the lights'.
Laura has recently recorded the Abba classic 'The winner takes it all' so hopefully new material will be available soon !!

A great compilation album putting together some of the greatest hits of 80's pop queen- Laura Branigan.
A mix of dance and synth-pop , of European and American sounds every song is rich is here is rich in rhythm and powerful and full of attitude, in it's own right. Quite of a few of the hits are translated European hits, but they all sail perfectly off Branigan's tongue into English.
Personal favourites include the rich and powerful Solitaire , the passionate ballad Ti Amo, the smooth rendition of the Jennifer Rush hit , Power of Love, the sad love song How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, the melodic The Lucky One , the rich and sensual Self-Control , and the electro-pop 80's superhit Gloria.
Laura Branigan , whose tragic and untimely death in 2004 left the music world poorer , made a great impact on the 1980's pop scene. Her talent and passion will be sorely missed.

Did not have as many well known songs as I expected. Any chance of a song list in the order section? Thank you.
