Love Songs is an English language compilation of mainly love songs by Julio Iglesias released in 2004. It contains his greatest English language hit - his duet with Willie Nelson on "To All The Girls I've Loved Before" which reached the top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100. It also features a duet with Dolly Parton on "When You Tell Me You Love Me" as well as a live version of "As Time Goes By" from Casablanca.

Pop icon Phil Collins first rose to major fame as drummer and then lead singer for British prog-rock supergroup Genesis. It was with Collins at the mic that the band rose to arena-act stature. Collins' massive popularity as a solo artist, however, eclipsed even that level of success, as the soft-spoken superstar–who started as a child actor on the London stage–went on to become one of the biggest names in popular music over the next two decades. The irresistible charm of Phil Collins turned him into one of the top pop stars of the MTV era. Here are almost two hours of his best from 1981 to 2003: his hits One More Night; Against All Odds, and Everyday plus You'll Be in My Heart, alongside previously-unreleased tracks such as "Somewhere", "I’ve Been Trying" and "Always".

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A great return to form for vocalist Earl Coleman – a singer who'd recorded earlier in the bop years, but who makes a rare 60s appearance here on a soulful set for Atlantic Records! Coleman's got a rich voice that's somewhere between Johnny Hartman and Billy Eckstine – with a great range that really goes deep when it wants, yet still has a fluid sensibility that's definitely jazz more than anything else. Billy Taylor's on the record on piano, and leads the combo on most numbers – but the set also features some nice arrangements from Frank Foster and Tom McIntosh, both of whom really keep things interesting. Titles include "Charade", "When Did You Leave Heaven", "I Wish I Knew", "Day In the Life Of a Fool", and "I Won't Tell A Soul".
