Cherished is the fourteenth studio album by American singer-actress Cher released in September 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. This album, like other several predecessors, was a commercial failure and failed to chart. Cherished was released in the 1977 and was the last album produced by Snuff Garrett. The years 1975, 1976 and 1977 were very unsuccessful for her, despite the huge success of her TV show. The Cher Show was a top-10 rated show but the album wasn't much publicized. As a result, it sold very little, failed in the charts and was ignored by critics and fans.
dissatisfaction with the final results of the album and in an
interview, she said that she never enjoyed making this album. She
only made it because of the contract deal with the Warner Bros.
During these years, Cher's voice was changing constantly. On "Cherished" she sounded very deep. Although not her best album, now fans still tend to like Cherished.
