PAT BENATAR - Ultimate Collection (2008)
Ultimate Collection features 40 of her all-time classic Pat Benatar tracks and simply put is a must-have for any 80’s power-rock fan! On top of the numerous hit singles and albums accredited to her name, Pat Benatar can also boast 4 Grammy’s, countless sold out tours and as a consequence of the recent explosion in interest of classic 80s power ballad albums (albeit in a slightly ironic fashion!), years of non-stop MTV airplay. In 1978 Pat signed a deal with Chrysalis records and a year later saw the release of her debut album ‘IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT’. The album produced two hit singles ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘We Live For Love’. Pat’s second album was released in 1980, and entitled ‘CRIMES OF PASSION’ it resulted in her 1st Grammy. This album held 4 hit singles ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’, ‘Treat Me Right’, ‘You Better Run’ and ‘Hell Is For Children’. Her third album, ‘PRECIOUS TIME’, reached # 30 in the UK but hit #1 in the US and went on to produce the fantastic singles ‘Promises In The Dark’, ‘Precious Time’ and ‘Fire and Ice’ - the latter gaining Pat her 2nd Grammy. The forth album, ‘GET NERVOUS’, saw the release of 3 more phenomenal tracks ‘Shadows of the Night’ (which went on to win her a 3rd Grammy), ‘Little Too Late’ and ‘Looking For A Stranger’. It was the release of her single ‘Love is a Battlefield’, taken from the album ‘LIVE FROM EARTH’, that really gave Pat immense exposure in the UK as the track entered into the UK Top 20 and resulted in yet another Grammy. Her following 3 albums ‘TROPICO’ (which produced one of her most famous power-rock ballads to date ‘We Belong’), ‘SEVEN THE HARD WAY’ and ‘WIDE AWAKE IN DREAMLANDS’ all went on to have great chart success both sides of the Atlantic and secured Pat Benatar’s place at the forefront of her musical genre for years to come.
