The Ultimate Collection (subtitled Celebrating Four Decades of Soul) was the fourth greatest hits album by Australian musician Renée Geyer.  Originally released in March 2010 but out of print for many years….thankfully just re-issued post Renee’s recent & sad passing.

Renee’s career spanned four decades and whilst she achieved  massive commercial success here in Australia, appearing on the Australian charts since the 1970s to 2000s, she was also highly acclaimed & respected by so many major US artists, as attested by the recorded sessions & touring she did whilst based in the US

The 17 tracks presented here were selected by Geyer herself & reflect those that she believed to be enduring fan favourites that were always requested at live shows.

Her best known hit, Eddy Grant‘s “Say I Love You“, is an essential, inclusion in this collection of soulful classics. The more emotionally infused tracks such as “It’s a Man’s Man’s World“, “If Loving You Is Wrong” and “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” are artfully performed and wrench, rather than tug, on the heart strings. Heading in the Right Direction, Midnight Train to Georgia, Steal Away, Difficult Woman, Why Can’t We Live together….There are also lighter moments with “Shaky Ground” and a cover of “Prince‘s “Thieves in the Temple“.
