CD Reviews

Highly prized indeed
04/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This double-album collection is packed with hits but the really declicious aspect is the "Highly-Prized Possession" album, one of the finest achievements of Anne Murray's long and distinguished career. A little bit rock, a little bit pop, a little bit country and with a whole lot of soul, Anne lays down a truly memorable series of songs with deep meanings, all interpreted to perfection. I have friends who are still playing the LP and weeping to it. This is an album you will play again and again and treasure forever."
Essential Anne Murray...anything else is slush
Todd Berryman | Indianpolis, IN USA | 01/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"LOVE SONG is probably one of the best "pop" albums that's ever been released. The fact that it's not available unless you purchase an import version is a criminal oversight on the part of Capitol Records, because it's an essential key to the songcraft of the era...proving that Anne Murray was mixing genres with aplomb long before today's "eclectic" rockers made reputations on just such a skill. From the production and arrangement skills of Brian Ahern (later to refine these skills with Emmylou Harris) to the song choices (a cover of the Beatles' "You Won't See Me" that might actually cut the original, wresting away a couple more Loggins and Messina songs) to Anne's own inimitable delivery (proving that a Canadian can take on Doris Troy's "Just One Look" and sing credible r&b), this is the one you HAVE to have. In the posse of female song stylists of the country/rock/pop era, this album asserts that Anne Murray was not only one of the first, she was unquestionably the best."
Another superb collection of two of Annes early records
