Super 20 is a greatest hits album by French singer Amanda Lear, released in 1989 by Ariola Records.

Background[edit]

The album was part of the Super 20 compilation series, released by Ariola Records throughout 1989, which included albums with music of the likes of C. C. Catch and Al Bano and Romina Power. It was Lear's first retrospective released on new digital format compact disc. The compilation included songs from five first Ariola studio albums, released between 1977 and 1981, as well as the 1982 non-album single "Fever". The CD features many of Amanda's biggest hits, however, "Enigma (Give a Bit of Mmh to Me)", a Top 10 hit considered one of her most famous songs, was ignored in the final track listing, and so were charting singles "Lili Marleen", "Solomon Gundie", "Incredibilmente donna" and "Love Your Body".

The artwork is credited to Ariola Studios. The picture used on the album's cover dates back to 1978 and depicts Amanda in the same outfit she wore on the cover of the Italian version of the single "Enigma (Give a Bit of Mmh to Me)"[2] and in the video for "Gold" filmed for the Italian TV series Stryx.[3]
