The album was released on November 16, 1999.
It features nine big hits and seven new songs (That's the way it is, If walls could talk, The first time ever I saw your face, All the way, Then you look at me, I want you to need me et Live). Three songs among the big hits are different for each country, that is why there are many editions of the album all around the world.
It is Celine's last album before her two-years break in 2000.
When I look back over the past ten years, I can't believe what an incredible journey it has been. I have so many things to be grateful for... so many great memories. I've been given wonderful songs by the best songwriters in the world, and I've had the opportunity to perform songs on virtually every continent. I've had the privilege of working with many of the greatest producers and artists of all times and I've had the good fortune to be part of some of the biggest projects in the entertainment business. So much has happened and I feel so very fortunate that I've been able to live this dream. There's still a lot more that I want to do in music and I have many more goals and dreams which I hope tu pursue in time. For now, I want to step back a little bit from the spotlight. I want to enjoy the simple things in life for a change. I want to spend more time with my family, my friends and especially with Rene. - Celine
"It's a new album with a best-of because I'd like to take a long rest but however, I don't want to only bang the door and leave, without saying goodbye, and without offering something, so I make two gifts!"
"This album reflects many of the highlights that I've enjoyed throughout my English-language recording career, Celine reveals. The familiar songs are ones that have become the biggest favorites among the fans. Song that people know me for... song that recognize the past. The new songs are ones that I received this year (1999) and felt very excited about recording and including on this particular album. In a way, the new songs represent the present and future."
Did you know that? Run like a river and Would I know are two songs written by Diane Warren which originally had to be on the album All the way as the first list revealed by Sony Music indicated it. However these songs were finally removed to make place for the song Then you look at me.
