This collection is a good attempt at bringing together Cher's more popular recordings from the mid-'60s to her Casablanca years in the late '70s, and the results are almost a total success. Most of her U.S. Top 40 hits are included (save for "Where Do You Go" and "Alfie"), as well as a few tracks with Sonny ("All I Ever Need Is You," "When You Say Love," live versions of "I Got You Babe" and "The Beat Goes On," and the campy "A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done").
CD compilation released alongside the DVD boxset The Sonny & Cher Ultimate Collection.
The Very Best of Cher is the eighth compilation album by American singer-actress Cher, released on April 1, 2003. The album includes many of Cher's most popular songs, such as "If I Could Turn Back Time", "Believe", "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" and "Take Me Home". It debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200 albums chart and later reached number four on the issue date of May 17. The Very Best of Cher was released by Warner Bros. Records, MCA, and Geffen Records. The original U.S. edition features 21 tracks, while the various later editions typically feature more songs or different selections. The album "Live! The Farewell Tour" was included in the Special Edition of The Very Best of Cher.
You might have thought that, since the 1998 merger of MCA and PolyGram, creating Universal Music, brought the hits Cher scored in the 1970s and '80s for Kapp, MCA, Casablanca, and Geffen under one roof, the next time they got around to doing a best-of they would combine all those catalogs. No such luck. In the wake of Cher's 1999 comeback with "Believe," Geffen issued its own comp, If I Could Turn Back Time: Cher's Greatest Hits. So, when MCA came to compile The Best of Cher as part of the midline-priced 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection series, they simply took the 1974 MCA Greatest Hits album, stripped off two B-sides, and added the 1979 Casablanca disco hit "Take Me Home"…
The Greatest Hits is the second European compilation album by American singer-actress Cher, released on November 30, 1999 by Warner Music U.K.'s WEA label. The album was very successful worldwide, it peaked at #7 on the official UK Albums Chart, and reached the top 10 as well as #1 in several countries across Europe and the rest of the world. This compilation was not available in the United States, due to the release of the US-only compilation, If I Could Turn Back Time: Cher's Greatest Hits which was released that same year.
This 25-song CD might properly have been called "The Best of the Rest" of Cher, comprised as it is of tracks from her first ten years in music that are usually left off of the "best-of" Cher compilations that are out there.
Closer to the Truth is the twenty-fifth studio album by American singer-actress Cher. It was released on September 20, 2013 by Warner Bros. Records. Opting to re-establish her music career, she began planning the project in 2011, shortly after her appearance in the movie Burlesque and the conclusion of her residency show at Caesars Palace. Work continued into 2012 and 2013. While the album was initially planned to be pop rock-oriented, Closer to the Truth ultimately became a prominently dance-inspired record. As executive producer, she enlisted longtime collaborator Mark Taylor to work alongside new producers such as Paul Oakenfold, Billy Mann, Timbaland and MachoPsycho to achieve Cher's desired sound…
Living Proof is the 24th studio album by American singer-actress Cher, released in November 2001 in Europe by WEA Records. In the United States, the album was released on February 26, 2002 by Warner Bros. Records where it debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 albums chart with first-week sales of 82,000 copies. The album has sold 520,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan and more than 1 million copies worldwide. Shortly after the release of the album Cher won many awards including Bambi Best International Pop Act Award in Germany, Dance/Club Play Artist of the Year Award and the Artist Achievement Award for her contribution to music at the 2002 Billboard Music Awards. Living Proof became her eighth consecutive album to be certified at least Gold in the United Kingdom.
