AllMusic Review by

While missing a few fine album tracks, this is an excellent 16-song distillation of her '60s recordings. Includes all of her British and American hits -- "As Tears Go By," "This Little Bird," "Summer Nights," and "Come and Stay With Me." Bonuses include "In My Time of Sorrow," an obscure mid-'60s folk-rocker co-written by Jackie DeShannon and Jimmy Page, and her 1969 single "Sister Morphine" (co-written with the Rolling Stones), predating the Sticky Fingers version; it's easily her most powerful performance of the decade.
