Us Rating: ***

Three Amy Winehouses live in this posthumous set of relics and rarities. There's the startling 18-year-old jazz prodigy scatting on 2002's "Halftime." Then the refined pop-soul goddess from her Back to Black heyday (hear the first demo of "Wake Up Alone"). And finally, the ravaged chanteuse sadly struggling to croak out Leon Russell's classic "A Song for You" right before her death. The disc makes you long for the Amy she once was -- and could have remained. (Universal Republic)
