AllMusic Review by

For a compilation with this kind of scope, some of the expected characters -- Kool & the Gang, the Blackbyrds, Lonnie Liston Smith, Candido -- are on board, but not with the expected contributions. As always, the Pulp Fusion series digs deep, but not so deep that you end up regretting the purchase after a cursory listen. The series continues to have serious collectors of '70s jazz, funk, and soul in mind, but even those whose familiarity begins and ends with the Superfly soundtrack will be sufficiently pleased. Johnny Hammond's "Star Borne," Pleasure's "Bouncy Lady," Sound Experience's "Boogie Woogie," and most of the cuts from the above-mentioned artists are worth owning and loving.
