What can you say about Whitney Houston that hasn’t already been said? It isn’t as if she needs a greatest hits record to solidify her career. At this point, she is a living legend. Whitney-The Greatest Hits celebrates the songs that went on to sell a combined seventy million records in the US alone. This is an album of thirty-six tracks that bring both the old and the new.
Something old comes with such hits as “You Give Good Love”, “I Have Nothing”, “I’m Every Woman”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”, and “I Will Always Love You”. And you can’t miss the priceless previously unreleased “One Moment In Time”, sung at the 1988 Summer Olympics. Even more spine tingling is her rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” from The new comes from duets with George Michael, Deborah Cox, and Enrique Iglesias, then ten great club mixes of some of her greatest hits, like “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay”, “My Love Is Your Love”, “Heartbreak Hotel” (featuring Faith Evans & Kelly Price), and “I Learned From The Best”.
Whitney The Greatest Hits does more than give you boring rehashes of tracks you probably already own, and that makes it worth buying.
