All 'Til Tuesday's Singles Beautifully Remastered At Last! July 31 2009
By Jason W. Bellenger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I stumbled upon this 'Til Tuesday 'Super Hits' release by accident. I've had my eyes on a great-sounding 'Til Tuesday hits package for quite a while now, wondering if Sony BMG Music would bother issuing another 'Til Tuesday compilation in order to cash in on the fans. The 1996 Coming up Close: A Retrospective hits and favorites package did not live up to my audio quality expectations, hence why I decided to not buy it. 'Super Hits' is a budget-type line initially developed by Sony Music back in the late '90s. The series has included a vast catalogue of the label's artists throughout the years. In the past few years, however, Sony, now tied with BMG Music Entertainment, has reissued a number of these collections with upgraded, shiny new packaging. The result? They all look great. Additionally, the label has issued a few of these collections for the very first time, including this 2008 issue of 'Super Hits' by 'Til Tuesday.

The result? All seven of the band's singles have been included in addition to three album cuts ("You Know The Rest", "David Denies", and "Crash And Burn"). Featured on this release are their two biggest hits, "Voices Carry" and "What About Love", which charted #8 in 1985 and #26 in 1986, respectively. Their other minor hits make the cut as well -- "Looking Over My Shoulder" (#61, 1985), "Coming Up Close" (#59, 1986), and "(Believed You Were) Lucky" (#95, 1988). Two other singles did not chart: "Love In A Vacuum" (1985) and "Rip In Heaven" (1988). All songs are the original LP versions except for the 7" single mixes of "Voices Carry" and "(Believed You Were) Lucky".

While the classic "Voices Carry" has rightfully plagued numerous '80s compilations and collections since it's 1985 release the one hard-to-find gem is "What About Love". I've actually had trouble hunting down this song, believe it or not. While it has made a few collections here and there over the years they are now out of print or hard to find. It's one of those forgotten singles of the '80s! And that brings us to "Coming Up Close" -- a beautifully arranged, sung, and produced minor hit that has stood the test of time very well -- and "(Believed You Were) Lucky", a mid-tempo ballad that deserved to be a much bigger hit.

While some fans may cringe at the idea of a 10-track budget release the new digital remastering will more than make up for whatever this collection is lacking in terms of content. While no mastering credits are given this disc features simply one of the best remastering jobs that I've ever heard come from the Sony or BMG music labels. The first time I popped the disc in I said, "wow!" It's absolutely stunning! It's most evident in tracks such as "Voices Carry", which has a roaring, vibrating bass line running through it! The music is crisp, clean, and bright. I never knew that this track could sound this amazing! Even slower songs like "Coming Up Close" benefit from added bass and clean seperation of instruments, significantly enhancing and widening the original dullness of those old CD pressings.

Highly recommended!

SAME MASTER AS THE 'RETROSPECTIVE', LESS TRACKS March 7 2012
By BOB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I disagree with "Jason" completely. I already own the Retrospective disc and purchased this disc based on his recommendation to compare.

The mastering on this disc is exactly the same as released on the out-of-print 1996 Retrospective disc, which has now been re-released. Used copies of Retrospective are even available here on Amazon for less than the price of this newer compilation.

Why buy the older release? It has sixteen tracks compared to only ten on this disc. Retrospective also has a real booklet, where this disc has only a front sheet. Sony's "Super Hit" series are produced for the cheapy rackjobs, like Wal-mart.

The only real reason to buy this disc, if you ABSOLUTELY have to have it, are the three remastered tracks that don't appear on Retrospective, "Looking Over My Shoulder", "Crash And Burn" and "Rip In Heaven".

This is a great album. Amy Mann is brilliant on vocal. I wish I'd bought this LP years ago. Glad I finally did. It's worth every penny.
Listened to them in colege and enjoying them today! Sept. 26 2013

Great group with terrific sound and lyrics that make you think.
You can'[t go wrong in playing them off a jukebox but having the whole album of songs at hoime is even better!
