AllMusic Review by

If watery British pop soul/disco is your cup of tea, then The Best of Hazel Dean has a friend -- it has enough upbeat fodder to keep you gyrating 'til the last call for alcohol. The 16 tracks aren't glued, but after the fourth track you'll think they are; but if you're buzz-out on a disco floor whaddya you care as long as the sounds keep pumping? A runny version of Ashford & Simpson's "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" blends in with the other mushy concoctions, and the whole ordeal soon becomes cruel and usual punishment.
