AllMusic Review by

The final volume of Rino's Soul Hits of the '70s: Didn't It Blow Your Mind gathers 12 more of the decade's classic soul singles, including Peaches & Herb's "Reunited," the Raydio's "You Can't Change That," Rick James' "You and I," and Cheryl Lynn's "Got to Be Real." Peter Brown's "Dance With Me," McFadden & Whitehead's "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," and Bell & James' "Livin' it Up (Friday Night)" are among the tracks that reflect the intermingling of disco and soul toward the end of the '70s; songs by Bobby Caldwell, Eveyln Champagne King, and Ashford & Simpson complete the collection. Though the album's track listing overlaps with some of Rhino's other compilations, Soul Hits of the '70s: Didn't It Blow Your Mind is still worthwhile for casual fans of '70s soul.
