AllMusic Review by

An imperfect but nevertheless impressive four-disc overview of King's greatest hits, The King R&B Box Set contains signature hits from the like of James Brown, Hank Ballard, the Five Royales and Little Willie John. Many essential items are here, but the sequencing is too scholarly to make the box itself essential, especially since the final disc is comprised of a fairly uninteresting interview.
