The Best of Cher, a 5-DVD Collector's Set from Time Life is a Must Own for Fans of this True Diva and Talented Performer (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a screener from the folks at Time Life in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

This past Thanksgiving weekend while our whole house was laid up with a head cold and sinus infections, I made things a little brighter and put a smile on my girls' faces when I introduced them to Cher, thanks to the "The Best of Cher" DVD collection, which recently released from Time Life.  

They had heard of a few songs before, "Do You Believe in Life After Love," but could never say, "Oh, that is Cher," nor were they requesting Cher music on Alexa.  But, that all changed after we sat and watched half of the 571 minutes that make up this amazing new collection.  From 10 full-length episodes of Cher featuring such guests as the Muppets, Elton John, Raquel Welch and Linda Rondstadt, to a very well put together featurette showcasing Cher then and now, and then on to so many great clips of rare television apperances (many of which I had never seen before).  There were all new interviews including one with Cher herself, that aren't to be missed.  

As I sat watching this DVD collection of all things Cher with my girls, I couldn't help but admire such a talented performer that Cher is. Not only can she sing, but she can act and host a variety show.  She can do it all, and this new release from Time Life showcases her many talents.  I grew up watching The Sunny & Cher show, and it was nice to be transported back to the 70's and 80's when it was all about Cher and her taking over the TV scene and music scene.  I was sad to hear her retiring years ago, but knew she wouldn't totally go away and that her music would always live on.  And, not in 2021, I get to introduce my girls to all things Cher in this amazing 5-DVD Collector's set.   Now, they are Cher fans, too, and love listening to her music from over the years -- recent and from back in my day.  They, too, see how talented Cher is and how she has accomplished so much on her own. 


More about this new DVD collector's set:

If you are a Cher fan, or know someone who is, then I highly recommend you check out the new The Best of Cher, 5-DVD Collector's Set available now from Time Life.  It would also make for a great stocking stuffer or gift under the tree this holiday season.
