International 2 CD version featuring all studio tracks (the US equivalent features one CD of studio tracks & one CD of live tracks). Warner Strategic Marketing's 'The Very Best of Cher' is finally the Cher collection that gets it right, presenting a fully rounded portrait of her long, winding, multi-label career. It contains hits from every aspect of her career, from Sonny & Cher's 'I Got You Babe' to her 1999 comeback, 'Believe' & beyond to the new, Rodney Jerkins-produced 'A Different Kind of Love Song'. This does have all the big hits, 'If I Could Turn Back Time', 'Just Like Jesse James', 'After All', 'I Found Someone', 'The Shoop Shoop Song', 'All I Really Want to Do', 'Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)', 'Half-Breed', 'Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves', among them. 42 tracks. WSM. 2003.

At last a proper greatest hits!

"This is the greatest hits with the same cover as the 2 other simpler versions. But don't let it fool you as this is an australian import which gets it right with a full 42 tracks in total. This is a must have with nearly 2 1/2 hours of music. Excellent value, pity it hasn't been noticed by too many people! Many songs including quite a few 70's tracks right up to the last album with 5 of its tracks on this cd from "living proof". Some quite rare songs on here to that not many people would have heard before, check it out!"
The Cher Collection To Own

"This is the Cher compilation to buy. There is none out there that is as comprehensive as this one. Buy the Canadian import (this version) because it contains a lot of tracks (heck a whole other disc) that were not on the US version. This version came out in Canada shortly after I saw Cher in concert in Calgary on August 25th. A night I'll never forget. She is a class act, and when you listen to this collection, you understand why she's been around so long, and still has staying power. She's been through so many changes throughout her career, some things have worked, others haven't, but she's still Cher. Everything from her current hits like "Song For The Lonely", "Believe", "A Different Kind of Love Song", "All Or Nothing", to her 80s work including "Heart of Stone", "We All Sleep Alone", "If I Could Turn Back Time", her 70s work including "Take Me Home", "Dark Lady", and her duets with then husband Sonny Bono such as "I Got You Babe", "Baby Don't Go", and many others. Overall a very comprehensive collection, THE Cher collection to own!"
Good, except for the sequencing

"This is pretty much a definitive collection of Cher's hits. Much more comprehensive than the 1999 "Greatest Hits" collection (International only) and the recent single-disc compilation, "The Very Best of Cher". However, I found the sequencing on those CDs much better than this one. This one starts off with her 90s and 80s hits but it pretty much goes all over the map once you hit the halfway point on the first disc. The second disc is made up of some recent dance songs, classics from the 60s and 70s and some duets from each decade. But I wish the album had followed a chronological order. You get no sense of how Cher's voice or sound gradually changed throughout the years. The one glaring omission is Cher's version of "Alfie" which hit the top 40 and a favorite of Cher's, and a version which is somewhat overshadowed by Cilla Black and Dionne Warwick's versions. I would also have liked to have heard more songs from her 1987 self-titled comeback album and 1996's "It's A Man's World"."
