AllMusic Review by

The 27-song Best of Dennis Yost & the Classics IV compilation, originally released through Capitol-EMI's "Legendary Masters Series," pretty well covers the essentials of the Classics IV's history, from their early post-doo wop releases, emulating the Four Seasons and the Diamonds, to their smoother, subtler contemporary pop sound, established by "Spooky" and maintained through the hits "Stormy" and "Traces." The sound is good, though there's room for improvement from the early-'90s-vintage digital mastering, and the collection is comprehensive to the point of including a few unreleased tracks, on top of the hits and B-sides. And the annotation comes up to this series' usual standard of excellence.
