Toronto rock singer Alannah Myles spent several years struggling unsuccessfully to secure a Canadian record deal, so she and songwriting partner Christopher Ward set their sights south of the border. Myles recorded a demo and video for the song "Just One Kiss," which got the attention of several companies and ended up on her self-titled 1989 debut album. "Love Is" established her in her home country and made Alannah Myles the biggest-selling debut in Canadian history, but it was the smoky, sensual "Black Velvet" that became a worldwide hit, reaching number one in the U.S. An American release of "Love Is" fizzled as a follow-up, and Myles thus far remains something of a one-hit wonder to U.S. audiences.
The U.S. charts paint this sensual Canadian singer as something of a two hit wonder - Black Velvet hit #1 and Love Is broke the Top 40 in 1990. But she's made several sensational albums, the best cuts from which are combined here for the first time! The two aforementioned hits are joined by Bad 4 You; Still Got This Thing; Lover of Mine; Family Secret; Break the Silence, and more of her best rock tunes and ballads.
