  • Having just graduated high school when Benatar hit the scene with “Crimes of Passion,” I was transfixed with her powerful voice and aggressive delivery. Listening to this great compilation, I’m as impressed as ever. A few notable tracks are not here – most importantly “You Better Run,” and “Wuthering Heights,” but nitpicks aside, this is a great disc.Pat’s classical opera training is quite evident in her amazingly powerful vocals. Quite unlike any rocker before or since. Husband Neil Gerardo’s guitar work is of the highest order as well.Worth noting is the fact that Benatar walked away from her career at the absolute height of her success to stay at home and raise her new daughter(s). She’s recently returned with some new material, which demonstrates that her voice is as strong as ever. She deserves the greatest respect not only as an artist, but as a woman with the moral character and courage to do what few in show business ever do: put their careers on the back burner for their kids’ sake. Hats off to a great artist, and more importantly, a great mother!An essential CD for anyone without the original albums in their collection.
