AllMusic Review by

Yet another Frampton compilation, this one a mid-priced ten-song (45-minute) assembly of his most well-known songs from the middle/late-1970s. Drawn primarily from Frampton Comes Alive, Frampton, Wind of Change, Frampton's Camel, and I'm In You, the material ranges from passionate, midtempo romantic rock to harder numbers. This CD has the virtue of using fresh, glittering 1998 remasterings, making for some pretty impressive listening. "Show Me the Way" is the live cut, but everything else, including "Baby I Love Your Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do," is represented by its studio version. There are no notes, but as a mid-priced item, there didn't have to be -- the sound is superb, and the price, if caught in the right sale mode, is about a third of the double-disc sets out on Frampton.
