AllMusic Review by

Sometimes, one can't help but wonder if the vaults of rare and unissued prime '60s soul sides are indeed limitless, a theory that excellent collection after excellent collection -- this one no exception -- would seem to bear true. There are 16 cuts on Magic Touch, and all of them are gems; the best of the bunch are Melba Moore's title cut, a remake of the Bobby Fuller tune, and Maxine Brown's "I Want a Guarantee," which features some nifty fuzz guitar.
