AllMusic Review by

Fine 21-track compilation of almost everything she recorded between 1970 and 1975, including most of her 1970 album Presenting Cissy Houston, ten songs that were previously available only on singles, and a couple that were previously unreleased in the U.S. Highlights include excellent interpretations of two Bacharach-David classics ("I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself," "This Empty Place") and Tim Hardin's "Hang On to a Dream," as well as the original version of "Midnight Train to Georgia."
