AllMusic Review by

This 11-track collection highlights Kim Weston's tenure at Motown. Perhaps best known as one of Marvin Gaye's duet partners, Weston also had a few hits in the 1960s but never really took off the way some of her labelmates did. It is a bit of a surprise given her soulful, powerful voice and wholesome good looks. The disc contains two of her duets with Gaye, the classic "It Takes Two" and "What Good Am I Without You." Her biggest solo hit was the guaranteed dancefloor filler "Take Me in Your Arms (Rock Me for a Little While)." That track is here along with nine other solo works. Best of which is the Northern soul stomper "I'm Still Loving You." The disc is marred by the inclusion of an overwrought version of "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" that is quite out of place on such a poppy collection.
