I can't add much to the other reviews other than say what a great purchase this set is from Katie. A selection of her best tracks, three great new songs, two songs not on her standard albums and the fantastic live Rotterdam DVD where Katies 2008 live set can be relived in all its glory, complete with between songs chat. For those interested, these are the live songs on the DVD :-

1. Piece by piece
2. I do believe in love
3. My aphrodisiac is you
4. Crawling up a hill
5. Mary Pickford
6. Blues in the Night
7. If you were a Sailboat
8. Ghost Town
9. Thank you, Stars
10. Perfect Circle
11. What I miss about you
12. Spiders Web
13. If the lights go out
14. Scary Films
15. Spellbound
16. Mockingbird Song
17. The closest thing to Crazy
18. Nine Million Bicycles

19. On the Road again
20. Kozmic Blues
21. I cried for you

A Collection after just three albums, some of you might think it's too soon... But actually, there are some great song missing! And that's not because of bad choices, because all songs here are masterpieces!
For those who don't have the albums, it's a great opportunity to discover the magical voice of Katie Melua.
For those who already have them, there are three new wonderful songs, a bluesy one with "Somewhere in The Same Hotel", a more catchy with "Two Bare Feet", and an undescribable "Toy Collection". There are also two released songs but not on the albums, "What A Wonderful World", the impossible duet with Eva Cassidy, and "When You Taught Me How To Dance", from the soundtrack of "Miss Potter", which are also worth the purchase of the Collection.

Moreover, there is the DVD with the Rotterdam concert, which should end up convincing you, or re-live an unforgettable evening if you went to a concert of the Pictures Tour.

To sum up, a must have for everyone!

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 6 May 2013
I kind of liked hearing Katie Melua songs on the radio but was never convinced enough to buy her albums for fear that all the songs would sound the same.

I have bought this collection in MP3 format as I am spending some time re-visting and extending my music collection.

Today has been a hot sunny day and listening to this in the car with the roof down and for this it is the perfect albumn. It would also be perfect as background music in a nice restaurant, romantic nght in or reading a book.

Whenever you want a a bit of tranquil listenning Katie has a lovely voice and is a skilled musician and songwriter.

This collection is ideal as all the Katie's best known songs are pulled together in one place. In fact her 5 biggest hit singles feature in the first 6 tracks.

Track 7 - "On The Road" again does bring a slight change of pace which is useful at this point.

I really like this collection and it's definately 5 stars in the right situation, I'm not sure I could sit through a 2 hour concert however, as there would probably need to be more excitement generated.

I hope that Katie can find a way to apply her talents with a bit more variety of pace in the future to keep her career going. For example, maybe she could have a go at bit more of a Sheryl Crow style on a future album.
