AllMusic Review by

He had a hit with the title song, but for most latter-day pop listeners, the George Baker Selection is known for that song because it provided an oddly appropriate opening salvo for Quentin Tarantino's classic Reservoir Dogs. For most listeners of the early '70s and the early '90s, the best way to hear the GBS is to just listen to those three minutes of magic, but if you find that song endlessly listenable, then Little Green Bag is a pretty fun listen. And it's a bit weirder than expected too, displaying a bizarre Europop vibe that keeps it interesting decades after its original release. No, there's nothing here that's nearly as good as the title track, but, as an artifact, it has its merits.
