"…Even so, The Very Best of Sheryl Crow does capture her biggest and best songs, adding two good new songs to the mix (a cover of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut Is the Deepest," which uses Rod Stewart's version as the starting point, and the solid new song "Light in Your Eyes"), that in turn capture the feel of the '90s by proxy." ~Allmusic
The Very Best of Sheryl Crow is a greatest hits album by American singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow, released in 2003. A Japanese version was released in 2008. The album was a commercial success, reached #2 on both the UK Album Chart and the Billboard 200, selling 4 million units in the US as of January 2008.
Crow's made some great music, and collaborated on lots more. From the waifish charm of All I Wanna Do, to her rendition of the theme song for the Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, to her latest Grammy-winning album, The Globe Sessions, she delivers the goods on a pretty regular basis. This girl has talent, folks. One of the reasons I like her work, is that Sheryl Crow strikes me as someone who has experienced both the best and worst of what life has to offer. I say that not from any knowledge of her biography, but rather as someone who appreciates her music.
C'mon America 2003 features 13 live performances from eight-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow. The set includes more than two hours of footage, including the No. 1 hit "All I Wanna Do" and the Top 10 hits "Everyday Is a Winding Road," "Leaving Las Vegas," and "If It Makes You Happy."
Sheryl Crow's fresh, updated spin on classic roots rock made her one of the most popular mainstream rockers of the '90s. Her albums were loose and eclectic on the surface, yet were generally tied together by polished, professional songcraft.
