The George Benson Collection is a compilation album by George Benson, released in 1981. Originally a two-LP set, it was reissued as one compact disc. In addition to previously released material from Benson's tenures with A&M Records, CTI Records, and his then-current label, Warner Bros. Records, the album features two new songs, including Benson's #1 R&B hit "Turn Your Love Around." The George Benson Collection was certified gold by the RIAA.[1]
