EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the most talented singers of any era, k.d. lang has flirted with so many styles that everyone has a different impression or preference towards her career. Some hear a gifted purebred country singer, while others hear a nightclub torch singer. Any of her studio albums shows off her vocal talents, but this collection does a fine job of bringing together some of her finest moments in one place. “Constant Craving” (which the Rolling Stones nicked for the chorus of “Has Anybody Seen My Baby”), perfect duets with Roy Orbison on “Crying,” Tony Bennett on “Moonglow” and Jane Siberry with “Calling All Angels,” and virtuoso performances of the Beatles’ “Golden Slumbers / The End” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” make a case for lang’s incredible versatility and show the respect that others hold for her in the recording industry. The Deluxe Edition includes live recordings from a radio broadcast at Malibu PAC that prove her talent is no fluke, as her stylized take on Neil Young’s “Helpless” is pretty, powerful and wild.

Finally!

Simply an amazing woman..... We love kd, and this record is packed with great songs. I'm going to be buying this for my friends, as many of them don't know exactly how awesome she is. I first saw her 10 years ago at the Wiltern, and I was blown away. I've been a fan since then and have yet to be disappointed in any of her work. A true artist.

I've never heard any voice like that ! so pure and powerfull  and this album is so perfect , i first fall in love with K.D Lang from her song Crying . Just Wow !

Most of her best on here.

I own almost all of kd's releases but it was too tempting to pass up a collection of her hits, all remastered and crystal clear. My only complaint is that the theme from 'Valley of the Dolls' was not included. Fortunately, I still have the song from an earlier CD.
