Back in 2003 when I first heard about the release of Avalon's Greatest Hits collection, I was very excited. All in all, it's a must-have if you just want all the #1 singles from Avalon, but I was a little disappointed when I didn't find the song "Fly To You" on this album; that's only because I was looking for it and couldn't find it anywhere. Other than that, when those of you who are long-time Avalon fans, as I am, play this CD and hear classics like "Can't Live A Day," "Testify To Love," "Wonder Why," and others, it will definitely bring back wonderful memories. You'll remember exactly where you were the first time you heard them, and it's like they're brand new all over again!Also, I think anyone would agree that Avalon's new voice on this album, melissa Greene, has one of the most amazing vocal talents; she can sing like the best of them! I simply fell in love with "Everything To Me" the first time I heard it on the radio, without even knowing it was Avalon. that is such a beautiful song, beautifully written, beautifully recorded, beautifully sung! go, Melissa!You'll find the other new songs, "Pray" and "New Day," a joy to hear: especially Janna's powerful vocals on one of her first upbeat solos for Avalon. BIG THUMBS-UP, to Avalon and to the producers, who did a great job making all the classics sound new again!
This CD is by far the best CD I have ever purchased!! My favorite songs are New Day, Everything to Me, Testify to Love, In Not Of, Pray, and The Glory. All the others are great, too! Thank you, Avalon, for your great music!
