"Ofra Haza's final album - 'Melodies of the Heart' is fantastic. It has 59 of her greatests hits including some previously unreleased tracks (e.g. Jerusalem of Gold, HaShana Inshallah, Golden Apple). The 3CD album also contains her biggest hits 'Frecha', 'Chai', 'Im Nin Alu', 'Shadai', 'Fatamorgana' & my personal favourites: 'Along the Ocean'[Live at Rabin Memorial Service] and 'Sixth Sense'.
If you're a huge Ofra Haza fan or even if you're not, you'll absolutely LOVE this album and is sure to please people of all tastes.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Superior Collection in Every Way

"Ofra Haza Greatest Hits, Volume One, is a beautiful and excellent 3 CD collection of 59 songs. This set along with Greatest Hits Volume Two offer a great compilation of most of Ofra Haza's best songs, as well as songs previously released only as 45 singles. Both volumes contain some great previously unreleased songs. Volume Two, another 3 CD set, contains an entire previously unreleased album, the excellent "Queen in Exile." Volume One is very worthwhile and satisfying even for those fans who already have all or most of her previously released material. Although I have all of her post 1977 albums except "Shirey Moledet Two", until this collection I have never heard the beautiful songs "Forty," "Listen to the Waves," "Jerusalem of Gold," "Haven't Talked About Love Yet," "The Golden Apple," "Sailor Boys," and "This Year inshalla." "Forty" is the best song here of the ones not previously released on album or CD. At least six of the previously released songs are alternate takes that I have never heard before. And for those unfamiliar with her, this set is a great introduction to Ofra Haza's music. The artwork, photos, the inserts, and the packaging are all tastefully and pleasingly done. You will not be disappointed. A highly recommended collection."
