AllMusic Review by

This 23-track collection of early and mid-'60s sides largely duplicates the material on EMI's Time Is on My Side collection, with some additions and subtractions. The EMI set has a very slight edge, although for most listeners either compilation will do the job. It's too bad somebody doesn't take the plunge and issue an 80-minute CD documenting this era; as it is, serious Irma Thomas fans will need to get each best-of, as each contains tracks not on the other.
