words cannot describe this music!!! and to think most if not all tracks were recorded on analog equipment. the value of this cd is worth much more than the asking price. I love the times, what a great cd .. a cd from the past which continues to influence my own music future..if I could have one track to add to this cd it would be "Dress you up" (LIVE) that would be the best

Producers include: Madonna, Stephen Bray, Lenny Kravitz, John "Jellybean" Benitez, Nile Rodgers.
If you're only going to get one Madonna record, or if you want to find out what the fuss is about, start here. THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION compiles the cream of Madonna's '80s singles, from the dancefloor innocence of "Holiday" to the soul-searching pop of "Live To Tell" and "Like A Prayer" to the forward-looking, beat-crazy stylings of "Vogue." Included are a few singles, "Vogue" among them, that didn't make it onto any of Madonna's proper studio albums, and a couple of cuts exclusive to the collection, most notably the weird, Lenny Kravitz-produced "Justify My Love."
Though there are a few ballads, the vibe is dance-pop, and to that end most of THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION was remixed by Shep Pettibone, Madonna's producer of choice at the time. Most of the mixes are true to the original singles, just buffed up a bit, while "Like A Prayer" gets a kind of Latin disco overhaul. For a summation of '80s pop, you can hardly do better. Seven of these songs hit numbr one and 13 of them made the top ten. And still Madonna was able to leave off several major hits, a measure of how picky she could afford to be. IMMACULATE indeed.

Artist Bio
As Madonna puts it, "I had no particular sense that I was going to be anything. When I was in high school, I wanted to be a professional dancer. That was my just led to music and singing, but I did not grow up wanting to be a singer. Someone taught me how to play the guitar, and I started writing music like I was possessed. Writing songs. It was the strangest thing. I didn't know I was going to be a singer until I was twenty-four." Madonna is, of course, the ultimate icon. The musical masterpieces, groundbreaking videos, starring film roles, charitable causes, and now the greatest role of all--Lourdes' and Rocco's mom! Through the chameleon-like changes, all the controversies and clamor, and now the joys of motherhood, it seems that the modern woman of legend has done it all: singer--composer--producer--author--actor--model--mogul--you name it. Not only can she do it all; there is nothing, it seems, she hasn't tried... at least once! Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, the third of eight children in a large traditional Italian family, was named after her mother who passed away from breast cancer when Madonna was only six years old. Sylvio Ciccone raised his children not only with a solid Catholic background, but with a disciplined work ethic as well. In high school Madonna was a cheerleader and straight-A student. She fell in love with dance and sometimes spent up to five hours a day taking dance classes and working out. Upon graduation she won a dance scholarship to the University Of Michigan. Finding the academic atmosphere stifling, after a year of college Madonna set off for New York City in 1977 with just $35 and her suitcase of leotards and toe shoes. Before long she had earned a spot with the Alvin Ailey Dance Troupe and, for a while, worked as the assistant to modern dance choreographer, Pearl Lange. After struggling for several years in the dance world she began to broaden her artistic horizons. She turned her energies to music, and the rest, as you know, is a historical and legendary work in progress...

ReviewSource Entertainment Weekly
Review ...Immaculate is as relentless as the woman herself. It never lets you forget for one dance-remixed second that few artists have racked up such a string of hits over such a relatively short period of time... a welcome reminder of what drew many of us to the Material Girl in the first place: her music. The album refocuses our attention on how brilliant her records have been over the years... it stands as the story of one woman's journey from fledgling self-promoter to rich self-promoter, with the aid of a good beat and uncanny marketing instincts. It proves that in all of recent pop, there are few stories more fascinating.
