I've been a fan of Alicia Keys since she debuted & can't believe how quickly time has flown by since then. The packaging of this collection is excellent - all three discs are housed in the foil designed booklet which was delivered perfectly by Amazon.
- the booklet contains commentary from Quincy Jones & Alan Light about the impact of this album at the time of its release as well as comments from Alicia about the creation of each song;
- the dvd is excellent and features all of the key players who helped Alicia become a star: her mom, close friends who wrote, produced & sang on the album, her stalwart ex-manager, Jeff Robinson and of course Clive Davis. I really enjoyed seeing just how much Jeff believed in her and how hard he pushed for her success. It was also interesting listening to dj's and music industry vets speaking about what a "game changing" album this was. Also included are the 4 videos that accompanied the album with a nice reworking of the FALLIN & A WOMAN'S WORTH videos into A HARLEM LOVE STORY - the videos are the same with additional commentary from Alicia shaping them into a story;
- the 2nd disc contains bonus remixes and unreleased songs of which I really enjoyed: FALLIN (from the ALI soundtrack), IF I WAS YOUR WOMAN, BUTTERFLYZ (from the Drumline soundtrack) and I WON'T (CRAZY WORLD).
As a fan I appreciate this effort mainly for the dvd and bonus material (much of which I hadn't heard before).

Alicia "Pure Talent" Keys!!!
2011年7月2日 - (Amazon.com)
Alicia's music speaks for itself, it has stood the test of time (ageless, feel good, emotional, meaningful, classic music) & the unreleased song "Typewriter" needs to be released as a single & played on the radio "stat"!!!... I loved watching the dvd also, it gives the back-story on how SIAM was made & the struggles she had to go through to get HER music heard & I love how she gives EVERYONE who is/was involved with her career/success their much deserved credit & the packaging of the Collector's Edition is absolutely beautiful ... it is so elegant, edgy, beautiful, New York ... it is so ALICIA!!! ... you most def will get your money's worth with this 10th anniversary re-release, it has all of the original classic songs, plus remixes, live concert versions, unreleased songs & a dvd documenting SIAM ... Alicia has proven that you don't need all of the "fluff" & you don't have to be the most popular to be successful ... all you need is a voice, heart, emotions, personality & a piano ... thank you Alicia for a decade of great music & much continued success to Alicia ... I can't wait to see what she has in store for us for the next decade!!! :-)

This collectors edition contains all the songs I wanted to hear. Her singing and the instrumentals are both beautiful music to my ears.
