An Excellent Overview Of An Underrated Career

"Ellen Foley never sounded better than on this disc and I can't help but wonder why she didn't achieve a greater degree of success as a solo artist--although, granted, she did enjoy some hint of fame in European countries such as Germany and Holland? As decried by another reviewer, if you have all of Ellen's previous offerings there's disappointingly nothing new to this disc, but it still serves as a fine collection for those wanting a mix from her brief but brilliant career as a recording artist. In fact I find it easier to stomach some of the songs from her second outing with the Clash when heard in contrast to more familiar tracks from Night Out and Another Breath! My only grievance would be that more tracks from Spirit of Saint Louis might have been omitted in favor of including Sad Song from Night Out and either Come to Me or Read My Lips from Another Breath. Otherwise an outstanding assortment of Foley favorites sure to please the Foley fan and possibly even win a new handful of converts!"
Nice, but own all her 3 CD's

"For awhile, this import was the only CD that was available of Ellen Foley's music. It's a good mix of songs from her 3 albums : NIGHT OUT, SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS and ANOTHER BREATH. The sound is fine, but the packaging is minimal . Really, now that all 3 albums are easily available as US releases , it makes this collection needless. All 3 albums are essential if you really are a fan of La Foley's amazing voice and talent. You won't have any missing songs, and for what you pay for this pricey import, you can get all 3 CD's for the same price. Even though this CD was released years ago, any fan of her tremendous voice will want the 3 albums on CD reissued on Wounded Bird, 2 of which have bonus tracks ."
