About this album

Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael is a greatest hits collection released by George Michael in 1998 (see 1998 in music).

The collection of 28 songs (29 songs are included on the European and Australian release) are separated into two halves, with each CD of the double set containing music of a particular theme and mood. The first CD, titled “For the Heart”, predominantly contains Michael’s hit ballads, while the second CD, “For the Feet”, comprises mostly his popular dance tunes.

Ladies & Gentlemen is notable for containing a large number of compilation tracks and duets that have not previously appeared on a George Michael album, including his U.S. number-one duet with Aretha Franklin, “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)”, previously available on Aretha Franklin’s 1986 album Aretha; “Desafinado”, the duet in Portuguese with Brazilian legendary singer Astrud Gilberto; and the Elton John duet “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”, from Elton’s 1993 album Duets.

Ladies & Gentlemen was released by Michael through Sony Music Entertainment as a condition of severing contractual ties with the label (Michael departed Sony with a great deal of acrimony and publicity prior to the release of Older in 1996). He would later return to Sony to release his 2004 album Patience.

“Outside” was the first single from the album. The song was a humorous look at his arrest shortly before the release of the album for soliciting a policeman in a public restroom.

    The thrill-stalking emptiness of 'Fastlove', the hate-fuelled 'Sympathy For The Devil' roll of 'Freedom '90', the brassy bleakness of 'Spin The Wheel' - these are the star stigmata. Stare all you want.

    'Jesus To A Child' is irresistibly maudlin.

    I love his voice. There's no one like him down on this earth. It is not our place to judge him or anyone else. Father God, the Lord of Host will be the final Judge of us all. "BE CAREFUL OF HOW YOU JUDGE OTHERS, FOR THE SAME MEASURE YOU JUDGE SHALL BE MEASURED TO YOU". His Gift is from God. What you got? ?????

    Well, since almost everyone on here has mentioned it, so shall I, yes, he's a queen, I don't like what he does sexually, then again, he probably won't like what I do either, but he's an amazing singer and a great performer, of that let no-one be in any doubt.
