SINGLES is unusual among Alison Moyet's greatest hits anthologies in that it includes three hits by Yaz, her short-lived duo with Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode and Erasure fame. Those three early-1980s hits are pinnacles of synth pop, particularly the haunting "Only You," the Yaz song closest in sound and feel to the R&B-based adult contemporary pop of Moyet's solo career. Highlights include her powerful solo debut "Invisible" and the lovely "Wishing You Were Here." SINGLES also includes a duet with Ewan MacColl on his standard "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."
