Greatest Hits [Sony]

Nancy Wilson 9/7/1999


"Greatest Hits"? I beg to differ. This does, to be sure, emphasize her most well-known material from the mid-'80s to 1997, when she was recording for Columbia. The thing is, Wilson had a long pre-Columbia career, and did her best -- and best-known -- hits for Capitol in the 1960s. By the time she got to Columbia, she was singing treacly urban contemporary pop, albeit with better pipes than most urban contemporary singers. That's what's heard on most of this collection, which includes four minor R&B hits she had in 1989 and 1994 (minor for sure, none of them got past number 64). The gap between her Columbia era and her Capitol one is emphasized, no doubt unintentionally, by the inclusion of two early '60s cuts on Capitol, one of which ("Save Your Love for Me," a duet with Cannonball Adderley) got to number 11 on the R&B charts in 1962. ~ Richie Unterberger
