AllMusic Review by

The promise of its title aside, the third volume in Motown's 16 Big Hits series follows the pattern set by its predecessors, instead striking a fine balance between chart smashes and lesser-known gems. While the primary drawing cards include familiar favorites like the Miracles' "Mickey's Monkey," Brenda Holloway's "Every Little Bit Hurts," the Temptations' "The Way You Do the Things You Do" and Marvin Gaye's "Can I Get a Witness," collectors will undoubtedly be more interested in the inclusion of less-anthologized material such as Little Stevie Wonder's "Hey Harmonica Man," the Marvelettes' "Breathtaking Guy" and the Spinners' "That's What Girls Are Made For."
