This collection of Benson hits is more than a "Best Of" release. In addition to the 15 classic cuts, this album even spawned its own hit with "Turn Your Love Around." THE GEORGE BENSON COLLECTION features key songs from 1976-1981, including "White Rabbit," "Give Me the Nigh," "On Broadway," "This Masquerade," "Nature Boy," "Love Ballad," "Breezin'," Benson's jazzy take on "Last Train to Clarksville," and "The Greatest Love of All."
In addition to highlighting these key years in Benson's career, COLLECTION also features all of the fine musicians with whom the guitar master worked. Earl Klugh, Quincy Jones, Patti Austin, David Foster and a host of others are here in various combinations and on many songs. Compiled, sequenced and edited by Benson's long-time producer Tommy LiPuma, THE GEORGE BENSON COLLECTION is a necessity for any George Benson fan.
