AllMusic Review by

A collection of Bonnie Tyler's pre-Columbia work with Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe, along with a number of rarities, Portrait Of... presents a more countrified Tyler with a few pop nuggets thrown in, but these tracks predate her fame and signature sound created by Jim Steinman. This is a good compilation -- especially for the rarities -- and a nice retrospective of Tyler's work in the late '70s. These are, of course, the hits from that time period, and it is still well worth the effort to check out the original RCA albums to hear the true gems. A nice overview nonetheless.
