It's common for female singers to cite Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland as their influences, but it's quite a rare occurrence to encounter a woman who can take the songs of such legends and make them her own.

In her 26-year career, Linda Eder has far surpassed the role of admirer and has taken on Carnegie Hall, the Gershwin theater, and nearly all the stages of Broadway to become recognized as one of the great contemporary solo voices. Rhino Records applauds the Broadway great with a career-spanning, single-disc collection of her work. Linda Eder: Greatest Hits will be available January 29.

Linda Eder: Greatest Hits contains 15 remastered tracks from four albums recorded between 1995 and 2003 and features selections from The Complete Jekyll & Hyde: The Gothic Musical Thriller (1995), It's Time (1997), It's No Secret Anymore (1999), and Broadway My Way (2003).

Linda was eight years old the first time she saw the Wizard Of Oz on television, and it hit her like a twister when Judy Garland sang "Over The Rainbow," and just like in the movie, Eder's world went from black-and-white to Technicolor. "I can remember the room; I can see the ugly shag carpet we had growing up. It was a pivotal moment in my life, because it gave me that desire for something I really wanted to do. If you want it badly enough, you make it happen, and she's what really kick-started it [for me]."
