The Collector's Series, Volume One is a compilation album by Canadian singer Céline Dion, released on October 20, 2000. It's her 8th English album and 28th in total. The album was renamed Tout en amour (meaning All in Love) in France.

Album information[edit]

The Collector's Series, Volume One is a compilation of some of Céline Dion's biggest hits and few rare tracks. The album features "The Power of the Dream" from the opening ceremony of the 1996 Summer Olympics, duets with Barbra Streisand and Andrea Bocelli, and few rarely heard non-English language songs. It also includes singles which didn't make onto Dion's previous greatest hits album All the Way… A Decade of Song: "Where Does My Heart Beat Now", "Only One Road", "Falling into You", "Tell Him", and "The Reason."

Tout en amour was released in France also as a limited edition, including twelve colour postcards with previously unreleased photos of Céline Dion. The album was re-released in October 2004 in few European countries, as part of the Best of the Best Gold series. The gold-disc pressing was housed in a die-cut slipcase, exposing the gold disc and featured the same tracks that graced the standard pressing.

Chart success[edit]

The Collector's Series, Volume One has topped chart in France, and reached top ten in Canada and Portugal.

It was certified gold in many countries, including the United States,[3] where it has sold 914,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[4][5]
