15 Greatest Hits was a free CD which was included with the British newspaper The Mail On Sunday on October 31, 2010. The songs where chosen directly by the fans on the Daily Mail website. A poll was created and the people could vote for their favorite fifteen songs. The CD came in a cardboard sleeve with a very nice cover picture. Some of the songs are live versions from Tina’s „50th Anniversary Tour“ in 2009.
