Cher if only Britney could be as talented than you

"Its a shame such talent and good music Cher has is overlooked by Britney and her crazy songs. Cher has been around since 1965. Very impressive. This music is so nice, some you could dance too, some are soothing and others have important messages to them. This compilation was released around the same time as BELIEVE her big hit album. This compilation is here to remind us of how Cher's career went through the 60s 70s and 80s before the 90s release of BELIEVE. My favorites on this compilation is LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING, I FOUND SOMEONE, SAVE UP ALL YOUR TEARS, SHOOP SHOOP, JUST LIKE JESSE JAMES, GYPSYS TRAMPS AND THIEVES, DARK LADY, HALF BREED and of course the Sonny and Cher classic I GOT YOU BABE. This is obviously a MUST for any Cher fan and every other fan of Britney or any thing alse from that pop trash today. This is GOOD music and highly recommended!
GOOD WORK CHER!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO"
The Complete Pre-"Believe" Cher

"Even before "Believe," Cher's reputation as a dynamic entertainer should never have been in question. "If I Could Turn Back Time, Cher's Greatest Hits" proves this. It is the best retrospective of Cher's career from 1965 to 1992.
The album opens with the previously unreleased "Don't Come Cryin' To Me." Recorded during the "Heart of Stone" sessions, the Dianne Warren penned tune combines heartbreak with the signature Cher toughness. The album begins the walk down memory lane with "Love and Understanding," "Save Up All Your Tears," one of Cher's best singles, and "The Shoop Shoop Song," Cher's classic cover from the 1990 "Mermaids" soundtrack. "After All" is one of the great duets of the 80s, hitmaker Peter Cetera complements Cher's voice perfectly.
"If I Could Turn Back Time" is Cher's best single, with the possible exception of "Believe," and it sounds better than ever on this collection. Other highlights from the 80s include "I Found Someone," "Bang-Bang," a remake of Cher's 60s Sonny Bono penned hit, and "We All Sleep Alone." Cher's first journey into dance pop is represented by 1979's "Take Me Home." This song stands as a great contrast to the 80s rock hits.
"If I Could Turn Back Time" closes with a look back at the 70s Cher and the 60s Sonny and Cher. "The Way of Love" is Cher's best ballad and the song sounds better now than ever. Story songs "Dark Lady," "Half Breed" and the Cher signature "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" might be dated, but they are still fun. The album closes with the Sonny and Cher classic "I Got You Babe." The 1965 charttopper stands the test of time.
There might be a few omissions on this collection. Not included is the 1987 standout "Main Man," and the 60s Sonny and Cher classic "And the Beat Goes On." Released in 1999, the album also omits hits from the under-appreciated "It's A Man's World" album. The collection is otherwise a complete retrospective of the pre-"Believe" Cher."
Great CD, lots of songs that you know...

"I tend to buy a lot of "Greatest Hits" CD's, because I despise the filler tracks that you find on most CD's these days. You get three good songs, and a lot of bad. This is the only Cher CD I own, and it's quite good. There are a LOT of good songs on this disc, the kind that you sing along to when they come on the radio. I didn't even realize how many of these songs I knew, I didn't recognize them from their titles, but once I listened to the CD for the first time, it immediately became one of my favorites. "After All", "I Found Someone", "If I Could Turn Back Time", and of course "I Got You Babe" are all great songs, and this is a great album for both Cher afficianados and people who just like good music..."
