Greatest hits album released in Europe, Chile and Asia in June/July 2002. This is the first European compilation album for ten years containing Olivia's hits after 1978. However, it's a little disappointing with cover art that has drifted too far towards the blues.
This was well promoted in France, UK and Chile with a TV commercial to back it up. It was released in the UK in October 2004 and reached number 11 in the UK album charts!

It was released in Japan March 19 2003 with a slightly different track selection (thanks to Naoto Tokuda) - see below.

The Korea release is the same as the European release with the same CD cover artwork etc but with a different label number (DC8371) plus a sheet translating the notes. However, the CD is presented nicely in a carboard "box" - see below - click to enlarge.
