AllMusic Review by

A strong collection of '70s funk jams that will liven any party. The track lengths are inconsistent: Funkadelic's "Not Just Knee Deep" (15:08) escaped the chopping block, but others, like Rick James' "You and I," are edited radio versions. Selections include Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up," B. T. Express' "Do It Til You're Satisfied," and Fred Wesley & the JB's "Pass the Peas." The collection also contains irresistible grooves from James Brown, the Gap Band, Kool & the Gang, War, the Ohio Players, and Con Funk Shun.
