The George Benson Collection is a compilation album by George Benson, released in 1981. Originally a two-LP set, it was reissued as one compact disc. In addition to previously released material from Benson's tenures with A&M Records, CTI Records, and his then-current label, Warner Bros. Records, the album features two new songs, including Benson's 1 R&B hit Turn Your Love Around. The George Benson Collection was certified gold by the RIAA. George Benson - The Best. George Benson. The Definitive Collection of George Benson. The Ultimate Dinner Party Album. 100 Greatest Love Songs. Listen free to George Benson The George Benson Collection Turn Your Love Around, Love All the Hurt Away and more. 17 tracks 83:50. When George Benson was making these recordings in the 1970s, he was considered a talented jazz guitarist who had crossed over to pop-soul vocals. While there's certainly pure pop and an emphasis on vocals here, there's also something else: smooth jazz. The George Benson Collection. Джаз 1981. 1981 Warner Records Inc.

In order to produce what it thought would be a definitive two-LP retrospective on George Benson, Warner Bros. raided not only its own archives but also those of A&M, Arista, and CTI. For added sales appeal, Warners inserted two new recordings, one of which Turn Your Love Around became another huge hit single, rising to number five on the pop charts. As of 2008, Collection remained the most inclusive Benson sampler, though far from a definitive one due in part to the scarcity of instrumentals. Released 1981.
