Out of print in the U.S.! Import pressing of this 1990 compilation, the first collection from the Pop/Dance superstar. Features 17 of her biggest hits up to 1990 including 'Holiday', 'Borderline', 'Material Girl', 'Into The Groove' and many others. Warner.
This is the perfect way to hear Madonna: no album filler, just one hit after another. As a singles artist, she works wonders: quick, danceable tunes that are occasionally "controversial" but never set out to change the world (and don't). The Immaculate Collection begins with her earliest work ("Holiday", "Borderline") and matures from there ("Papa Don't Preach", "Like A Prayer"), ending in 1990. The highlight is the inclusion of "Justify My Love", a track recorded specifically for this compilation. One caveat: since Madonna is a true video artist, it'd be even nicer to "see" these songs. --Rob O'Connor

"The Immaculate Collection" contains many Madonna favorites, from "Like A Virgin" to "Material Girl" to "Like A Prayer". These songs, along with "Open Your Heart", "Cherish and "Express Yourself", are among the greatest songs in popular music. Anyone who deosn't like these songs does not have a good ear for good music. Also, there's a few not so recognized songs included here, like the beautiful ballads "Crazy For You" and "Live To Tell" as well as the eerie "Rescue Me"
As I said earlier, the immaculate collection does leave some stuff out, and only one of these omitted songs failed to make the top 10. The songs not included here are:
"Angel" (number 5)
"Dress You Up" (number 5)
"True Blue" (number 3)
"Who's That Girl" (number 1, the most telling omission)
"Causing A Commotion" (number 2)
"Oh Father" (number 20, the song that broke her top 10 streak)
"Keep It Together" (number 8)
"Hanky Panky" (number 10)
Still, what's here is an amazing legacy of music created in such short time by an artists who remains an icon of the 20th century and an influence on so many musicians. Purchase this today.
-Let's say you're one of those people who listens to your local eighties music station, and you've heard a number of Madonna songs you like, but you don't want to shell out cash for all of her albums. The Immaculate Collection is a great alternative! Just about all of her big eighties solo hits (Like A Prayer, Material Girl, Vogue, La Isla Bonita, and many others) can be found here.
-You also get a number of underrated masterpieces that were never hits - but should have been.
-This compilation is readily available in a number of stores.
-This compilation is a good value. It's relatively inexpensive, and you get seventeen songs on one disc!
-Many of the songs are EDITED! WHY!? Many artists put edited/altered versions of their big hits on their hits compilations, and sadly Madonna has proven to be no exception.
-Where's True Blue? IT WAS A HUGE HIT!
-This only covers Madonna's eighties stuff, so you don't get any of her modern hits like Music (there's a Greatest Hits Volume Two, but THIS is the better compilation by far, in terms of the quality of the material present.)
If you're a casual fan of Madonna's eighties material, The Immaculate Collection is just what you need. It's not an immaculate compilation, but it's still a good one nonetheless, and recommended to all casual Madonna fans. And if you only get ONE Madonna hits compilation, make it THIS one, and not Greatest Hits Volume Two - the new one just doesn't capture her in her prime the way this one does.
