AllMusic Review by

A late '80s anthology with 16 of what RCA considers his biggest and best hits. They've actually done a better than average job of picking the tracks; you can't quibble with the requisites like "You Send Me" and "Wonderful World." The problem is that the proliferation of Cooke hits and anthology packages doesn't address either the almost complete obliteration of his catalog or the fact that he hasn't gotten the boxed set treatment he merits.
