4.0 out of 5 stars Just A Taste of Genius Feb. 1 2001
Format:Audio CD
Any list of the greatest female vocalists of the twentieth century will have to include Fancy Miss Nancy Wilson. Blessed with a stunning and supple voice, unusually gifted at lyric interpretation, perfect timing, color and intonation, formidable stage presence and great beauty, Wilson has it all. And, according to the liner notes on this splendid anthology of the years she spent on the Capitol label (1962-1979), her voice and style were essentially the same when she was a young girl as it is today. Of course, listening to the tracks assembled here, which range from her first sessions (the classic "Save Your Love from Me," Jimmy Scott's "Why Did You Leave Heaven?" and signature "Guess Who I Saw Today") to the ill-advised disco of "Life, Love and Harmony", you can hear her voice deepen and her song readings darken and mature. This 2-CD set spotlights the commercial singles highlights of Nancy's Capitol tenure, focusing heavily on her R&B chart impact, and makes a good case for her as a viable soul singer in the 1960s. But whether she is belting out "Face It Girl, It's Over," crooning "Peace of Mind" and "You'd Better Go," working with Gamble and Huff on the oozing "Now I'm A Woman," or pulling out every last emotional stop on "The Greatest Performance of My Life," Nancy imbues each and every song with jazz-specific attitude and phrasing. "Nancy Wilson Anthology" is wonderful, but it is just a taste of the genius that is Nancy Wilson. It will prompt you to explore her many, many other LPs and CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fancy Ms. Nancy June 18 2000
Format:Audio CD
The foward to this album starts off by telling you that this is the soulful side of Nancy Wilson and with good reason. The two disc cd-set is extraordinary. From the classic,"Save your Love for me" w/Cannonball Adderley to the Stevie Wonder,"All in Love Is Fair". This album is Nancy at her best! If you have not had the pleasure of listening to this wonderful songbird, this collection is for you. Check out,"The grestest performance of my life" and the live version of "guess who I saw today" both of these songs demonstrate what it is like to see Nancy live in concert. Thank you capitol for releasing the 60's and 70's contributions from lady Nancy.

If you're a new entrant in Nancy Wilson's scenario and want to get an overall view of the important times of her career (Capitol EMI Records), this is the 2-CD pack. However it's not honest to repeat some tracks from other albums which are currently available. First CD is the best one because covers her early times with great musicians and repertoire. The second CD covers R&B and pop hits from the 70s. I would fully recommend you listening to her extraordinary performance on "Don't Misunderstand" (arrangement by Don Sebesky) from the second CD besides her old greatest hits on the first CD, like "Face it Girl, It's Over" and "Guess Who I Saw Today".

5.0 out of 5 stars Miss Nancy Wilson...last of the legendary divas June 15 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Anthology" is a must for any Nancy Wilson fan or lover of good jazz. It's a great compilation and includes live performance. I recently saw Miss Wilson in concert and she is even better live than recorded...if that's possible. It was a dream come true to hear the beauty and power of this legend in person, but now everyone has the opportunity to hear her heart and soul...and wit...for themselves. And with the number and variety of songs on this album...there's something for everyone. Miss Wilson has many more singing years ahead of her to give us enough new (and old) songs for "Anthology II."

4.0 out of 5 stars THE ONLY DIVA July 28 2000
Format:Audio CD
When all of my friends were listyening to the Stones,Hendrix,etc.,I was chillin'with Miss Nancy. This anthology,while not perfect contains most of the major Nancy moments including her pop and R&B hits,plus some stunning album cuts. Any future divas out there, this is your Master Class. Listen to "I'll Get Along Somehow" and see how it's done.
