The legendary Sonny & Cher set the music world on fire in the sixties and beyond with their superstar brand of classic rock and pop music. Their music transcended all boundaries of popular music with their brand of folk-rock, Phil Spector Wall-of-Sound-like production, and two-and-a-half minute symphonies, sounds which they imparted to the ears of millions of people who wanted to hear rock-and-roll love songs.
Spearheaded both by the multi-talented singer/songwriter and producer Sonny Bono and the grace and voice of his trendsetting fashion model wife, Cher, their debut 45 recording of "I Got You Babe" would prove to become a huge catalyst for things to come for these popular hipsters. They would go on to sell multiple millions of records and albums and have their songs successfully covered by many rock and pop acts over the years like Mott The Hoople, UB40, Chrissie Hynde and Vanilla Fudge.
With a dazzling number of chart-topping singles, a bunch of hit albums, numerous television appearances, a number one television show, successful concert tours and feature movies, Sonny & Cher's ATCO recordings would take the duo to the top of all the popular music charts and would become some of the finest Top 40 hits of all time.
Even though the great Sonny Bono is no longer with us, the duo's massive radio airplay and an amazing string of hit records prove that Sonny & Cher to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.
After delivering a plethora of hits in rapid succession for ATCO Records, the label honored this hugely popular husband-and-wife team with their incredible greatest hits album, simply titled 'The Best Of Sonny & Cher.'
Filled with a treasure trove of chart-topping singles and hit songs from their smash albums, this incredible 1967 effort from these pop/rock legends remains one of the finest greatest hits albums ever released.
All your favorites are here, as this 12-track masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit, with smash singles like "What Now My Love," "The Beat Goes On," "It's The Little Things," and the song that inspired many people during the turbulent '60s, their number one classic "I Got You Babe."
As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, The Best Of Sonny & Cher includes even more hit tracks like Sonny's protest rocker "Laugh At Me," the smash sounds of "Sing C'est La Vie," "Just You," and their powerful interpretation of the classic "Let It Be Me."
