An excellent introduction to Bonnie Tyler
(5 out of 5 stars)
"After having purchased two collections in a local store, I had to have more material from Bonnie Tyler. I decided to order this, and a few other compilations. This is my favorite so far. It includes Bonnie's earlier works, including It's a Heartache, Lost in France, and Married Men. It also has her work from the 1980s such as: Total Eclipse of the Heart, If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man), Holding Out for a Hero, Save Up All Your Tears from the rare Notes from America, etc. Also included is a bonus disc which includes the full versions of a few songs, as the first disc has edits. And there is an excellent remix of Holding Out for a Hero, which is on the second disc as well. The booklet is less than informative, with just the track listings of disc one; but the music here is great, and that's what is most important. There are enough tracks here to satisfy until you can search for Bonnie's original albums. Overall, I would easily recommend this to a collector, or to a beginner who wants a collection of Bonnie Tyler's works."
Excellent starting point

"This one falls a little short if you're looking for a truly definitive collection of Bonnie's ENTIRE career, but it certainly serves as an excellent compilation of Bonnie's biggest hits and stand-out album tracks from her three albums on Columbia Records. Four of her early RCA songs, including "It's A Heartache", are also thrown in for good measure. This would be the CD most casual fans would want to check out first, as her Columbia years provided Bonnie with several career highlights, as well as some of the biggest hits she's ever had (and a few that got away!). Loyal fans will also want to have this one in their collection for the inclusion of the rare single edits and mixes. Disc One includes the massive hits "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" and "Holding Out For A Hero," as well as "Here She Comes", "Have You Ever Seen The Rain", "The Best" (later a huge hit for Tina Turner), "To Love Somebody" (a breathtaking recording of the old Bee Gees chestnut), and "Save Up All Your Tears" (which was later a hit for Cher, and appears here in its very rare single remix). Disc Two features the original album versions of "Total Eclipse Of The Heart", "Faster Than The Speed Of Night" and "Loving You's A Dirty Job But Somebody's Gotta Do It". Also included on Disc Two are "Band Of Gold" (a cover of the old Freda Payne classic), and famed remixer Jellybean's re-working of "Holding Out For A Hero", which serves as an excellent precursor to Bonnie's version of "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad", which can be found on her later album, 'Free Spirit.' All in all, this is a highly recommended collection."

"This Bonnie Tyler's two-CDs package is worthy. Althought she has not had a large collection of big hits like Streisand or Madonna, this collection includes all her 5 chart hits plus some excellent renditions of other artists' songs along with more songs of her own albums where she shows the great rock singer she is. The second CD includes long version of some of her "classics". In total 23 excellent tracks. It's really worthy
The CD is excellent and that's why I ranked it 5 stars"
