TITLE: Greatest Hits Preview CD

BACKGROUND: Whilst this UK promo CD was produced primarily to market the (at that time) forthcoming Greatest Hits double album; it also served to promote the ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ single and the 1998 album ‘My Love Is Your Love’, from which Heartbreak Hotel was the official lead.

As the first track on this release, Heartbreak Hotel was a particularly shrewd inclusion, as it had (at the time) been very high profile. This was largely due to it also receiving two nominations at the 2000 Grammy Awards: Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance by a Group or Duo, though it did not win. The video had also been nominated for Best R&B Video at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Furthermore the song had been a hit in a number of countries worldwide and was certified Platinum by the RIAA (in 1999). This song was unique in the UK in that it was held back to be released as the third single from Houston's Whitney: Greatest Hits album in December 2000. It also holds the distinction as being one of only three songs to be on both discs for Houston's 2000 Greatest Hits collection, in its original and remixed formats.

The preview CD which we are selling, originally accompanied the ‘Night & Day’ magazine which featured Whitney on the cover and had an extensive feature (see bottom of this listing for a ‘Transcript of ‘Night & Day’ article”). It was published as a supplement with the Mail on Sunday. The covers of both of these are shown in pictures 4 and 5 for reference purposes only. The magazine/newspaper are NOT for sale here.

STYLE OF MUSIC: Pop, dance, soul, gospel adult contemporary, R&B
