CD Reviews

Heading in the right direction
William | Australia | 10/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Renee Geyer richly deserved more success than what she received in Australia. Yet, like so many of our artists, she had to go overseas to try her luck. Australians did not take their artists seriously until they 'made it big' internationally. Renee possesses a very capitivating voice which many Blues experts have rated as 'one of the best"."The Best of" starts with an early track titled "Oh Boy" before leaping into the brilliant "It's a man's world". My favourite "Heading in the Right Direction" is also included, plus the Mowtown feeling song "Stares and Whispers". If ever there was a Renee song which should have gone No. 1 all over the world, then this was the song.I was surprised at how many other tracks I knew considering how little attention radio gave her in the 70's & 80's. This is overall, a brilliant compilation that deserves a place in your CD collection. It also includes 1981's "Say I love you".I am pleased that tracks from her 1985 album "Sing to Me" were overlooked on this compilation. That was her worst album."
Almost Perfect

"An Aussie friend new I loved Soul music and thought I'd like Renee. She was right. She's one of the best and this album is a good representation. However, Renee's been around since the 70s, so her music changed to reflect the eras. The over-produced 80s were evident in Australia as here in America. Renee is in fine form throughout, but some of those arrangements..."
A great introduction

"Okay let's get the quibbles out of the way first: there's nothing here from Winner, Sing To Me, Blues Licence, Renee Live, Live at the Basement or Easy Pieces, nor are there any of Renee's non-album singles. While overall they might not have been her best works, they certainly included some great vocal performances that warranted inclusion here. What we do get is a chronological sampling starting with 1973's Oh! Boy through to I'm The Woman Who Loves You which was intended for, but not included on, Sweet Life. What is clear is how the fantastic raw 20-year-old voice developed into one of the great voices in popular music today. This is a great sampler for first time listeners. Use it as a starting point to get into Renee's extensive back catalogue, as well as the recent Sweet Life - her best yet."
