This would be a fine intro to kd lang and it's also a nice compilation for those of us who already have a few of her albums. Her 2006 collection Reintarnation has some fun numbers but it's quirky and very countrified. The songs on Recollection are more representative of her career and the overall vibe is mellow. Play it, for example, when you're having brunch and people will notice it but not find it distracting. My favorite is Crying, her duet w/ Roy Orbison, probably the definitive cover version of that song. Followed by Cole Porter's sassy and sexy Love For Sale. CD1 has more of her own songs. So, the wide range here makes it a very good value.
I would recommend this to a friend
