2006 audio CD release

Along with Melissa Manchester, Barbara Streisand, and a few others, Helen Reddy was one of the defining voices of women's soft pop in the 1970s. Her hit "I Am Woman" became an anthem, and her other major charters--"Delta Dawn" and "I Don't Know ...    … see full wiki

It has been an awfully long time since Helen Reddy had her last big chart hit.  Her music has all but disappeared from the radio.  That's too bad.  But the fact of the matter is that Helen Reddy was a major force in popular music during the 1970's.  For those seeking a pretty complete anthology of her hits Capitol's 2006 release "Helen Reddy The Woman I Am: The Definitive Collection" would appear to be an excellent choice.  This disc contains just about every one of her important Top 40 hits as well as a number of gems from her LP's. 

Everyone will remember the great hit singles from her heyday like "Angie Baby", "Delta Dawn", "Ain't No Way To Treat a Lady" as well as the song that made her famous "I Am Woman" from 1972.  But if I had to choose my favorite Helen Reddy tunes they would have to be her remake of Cilla Black's "You're My World" followed closely by 1973's "Peaceful".  To be honest I had not listened to Helen Reddy's music for quite some time and I had forgotten what a terrific voice this lady possesses.

"Helen Reddy The Woman I Am: The Definitive Collection" includes a colorful and informative 12 page booklet.  I was surprised to see that another reviewer was quite critical of the sound quality of this disc.  I did not find that to be the case at all. In fact, I found the sound quality to be superb and I thought the remastering really enhanced my enjoyment of these 30 year old recordings.   Recommended.
