Farewell tour and "Best Of compilation '-■ : ■ remind fans of remarkable career that makes parting such sweet sorrow. Goodbye, Cher! ticketmaster.com 713.629.3700 SPeC512.69n52feS: 7,3.629.3700 Fiesta • Foley's - Wherehouse Music CHER ONCE AGAIN EMERGES FROM her time capsule with another concert tour and greatest hits record. Viciously enduring and infectiously appealing, this gay icon simply seems to be indestructible. Her fine sense for hit potential, provocative style and empowering persona has fascinated audiences for almost 40 years — despite mixed rumors and truth about plastic surgery, outrageous fashion and cheesy infomercials. The diva, 57, is said to be finally ready to retire in peace and is on her "Farewell" stadium tour. Last week, she released "The Very Best of Cher" greatest hits compilation in conjunction with the tour. The singer put together a collection of 21 songs that take listeners through all phases of her career — from pop folk singer in the '60s to disco chick in the '70s and from rock vixen in the '80s to gay club diva in the '90s. The compilation not only includes solo hits but also "The Beat Goes On" and "I Got You Babe," two of her first and greatest hits with first husband Sonny Bono in the mid '60s. WHILE STILL MARRIED TO SONNY, Cher struck gold as a solo artist in the late '60s and early '70s. Songs from that era included the cover of Bob Dylan's "All I Want To Do," "Bang, Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves," which debuted at number one and marked the singer's artistic maturity ju_st as the couple's TV show reigned supreme in the ratings. Cher wasted no time after she broke off her personal and business partnership with Sonny in 1974 to pursue her own career in music, television and film. Her second number one smash "Half Breed" from 1973 is also featured on this CD. "Half Breed" highlights Cher's trademark vocals and Snuff Garrett's rocky production. The singer's chart triumphs in the '70s continued with "Dark Lady," which also appears here. The compilation album doesn't miss the singer's disco phase in the late '70s with the flaming "Take Me Home," which bears a slight resemblance to some of her big clubs hits in the '90s when it comes to melody and message. CHER RESURFACED ON THE MUSIC scene after a successful turn in movies with a string of pop rock hits in the '80s. She again redefined herself with hits like World famous and indestructible diva Cher calls- it quits after 40 years in the public eye with a final tour and a new CD. (Photo by Michael Lavine/cher.com) "I Found Someone," "If I Could Turn Back Time," "Save Up All Your Tears" and her duet with Peter Cetera on "After All." She shunned the spotlight for a few years and made another miraculous comeback in the late '90s with her global sensation "Believe," which became the best-selling achievement of her career. Follow up songs such as "Strong Enough" and party anthem "All or Nothing" are on the compilation as well. As a bonus, the CD includes radio- friendly remixes of "One by One" (by gay DJ Junior Vasquez) and "A Different Kind Of Love Song," which is revamped by Rodney Jerkins into an infatuating techno tune. The CD booklet includes full-color photos and detailed booklet notes from famed Rolling Stone writer and MTV News host Kurt Loder, who concludes that the most attractive aspect of Cher's career is her "utter lack of naked show-biz ambition." With "The Very Best of Cher," the diva presents her fans the ultimate swan song, a worthy testament of her diverse and remarkable music career. She leaves fans a rich musical legacy and tabloid gossip history that will keep us entertained for many years to come. (t MORE INFO The Very Best of Cher" Warner/MCA/Geffen, 2003 www.cher.com
