    This double album (available in CD only) includes 14 songs "for the heart" and 15 songs "for the feet" and it's the first George Michael compilation that was released to celebrate his career from 1984 to 1998. The selection of tracks was chosen by the singer himself and you'll notice that it includes a lot of his biggest hits but also songs that George considered important in his career like "Desafinado" for example, where he sings in portuguese. 🎵👍❤️

    The first CD "for the heart" contains his most heartfelt ballads like Jesus to a Child, Father Figure, Careless Whisper (his first solo song), etc and the second one "for the feet" is best described as his dancefloor hits like Fastlove, Too Funky, I Want Your Sex, etc. “Ladies & Gentlemen” was a success, peaking at number one on the UK Albums Chart for 8 weeks. It has spent over 200 weeks in the UK Charts and is the 38th best-selling album of all time in the UK. It is certified 7 times platinum in the United Kingdom and is Michael’s most commercially successful album in his homeland having sold more than 2.8 million copies.
