Love of My Life: The Best of Dan Hill collection focuses on the singer's chart entries from the '70s and '80s along with superior album cuts. The highlights of the package include duets with Celine Dion "Wishful Thinking" Deborah Cox "The Healing Power of Love", Rique Franks "In Your Eyes" and Vonda Shepard "Can't We Try" and the original version of Hill's 1977 chart topping hit "Sometimes When We Touch".
There are almost more Petula Clark collections than there were actual songs (that's saying something), and Sanctuary's three-disc Songs of My Life: The Essential Petula Clark is one of the better ones. Split into three themes, "Swinging Times," "Mellow Moods," and "Beautiful Sounds," Songs of My Life relies heavily on the English pop sensation's peak '60s and '70s output. All of the key radio hits are here ("Downtown," "I Know a Place," "My Love," "This Is My Song"), as well as countless ballads, uptempo pop gems, and choice covers. Fans looking for a decent career overview (sadly, none of Clark's vast arsenal of French hits are here) may find the 78 tracks that populate Songs of My Life a bit overwhelming, but they're well worth spending some quality time alone with.
Collectables' Michael Bolotin / Every Day of My Life contains Michael Bolton's first two albums on one CD. During this time, Bolton was going by his given name, Bolotin, and was trying to be a hard-rocker.

One of the talented musical arrangers is Ray Conniff, hands down in my opinion. This collection proves that in these selections of songs popular in the early 1970s. I especially enjoyed his renditions of Dueling Voices and the theme from 2001:A Space Odyssey! A nice two fer set of Conniff's best!
