AllMusic Review by

The singer/songwriter/producer/keyboardist extraordinare's greatest-hits set includes the number one pop singles "Will It Go Round in Circles'" and "Nothing From Nothing," as well as the number one R&B hits "Outa-Space" and "Space Race"; all were million sellers. The gentle ballad "You Are So Beautiful" was adapted into a gospel song. The included version of the gospel-ish bluesy ballad "I'm Really Gonna Miss You" is the single version and a different take than the one originally issued on Whole New Thing. A great showcase for Preston's massive talent.
