Presumably released at some point between 1992 and 2000 since it covers Sade's first four albums, Best might not be an official release. While it features the Epic logo, the packaging is exceptionally shoddy and the track list misspells "Like a Tattoo." Fourteen tracks in length, it rounds up highlights from Diamond Life, Stronger Than Pride, Promise, and Love Deluxe. Its lack of both "Your Love Is King" and "Never as Good as the First Time" are other significant knocks against it. There are much better Sade compilations out there, including The Best of Sade (1994) and the more comprehensive The Essential Sade (2014).
