Not the Versions We Know and Love,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Womack & Womack: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
I bought this album because I heard 'Love Wars' in a pub and really enjoyed hearing it again. I'd always loved 'Teardrops' and, as this was a reduced price album, I thought it was worth buying just for those two tracks. However, the version of 'Love Wars' on this album is a self indulgent and breathless live performance that lacks soul and subtlety. My disappointment was only exacerbated when I didn't recognise 'Teardrops'; it transpires to be a remix. 'Celebrate the World' is the original version so does classify as a 'Greatest Hit' and this is a saving grace, but I would not recommend this album, simply because the versions we know and love aren't there.
