AllMusic Review by

35th Anniversary Hits Collection is a pleasant set that combines Three Dog Night (with original vocalists Danny Hutton and Cory Wells, sans Chuck Negron) and the London Symphony Orchestra. The fusion of Three Dog Night's patented blue-eyed soul vocals with lush arrangements provides a glimpse of the direction they could have pursued had they not broken up in 1976. Even during their heyday, Three Dog Night incorporated a rich full sound in the studio that occasionally utilized strings and horns on hits like "Celebrate," "Joy to the World," and "Black and White," all included on this package. Among the 19 cuts are live recordings of "Eli's Coming," "Brickyard Blues," "Try a Little Tenderness," "The Family of Man," and two post-breakup tracks, "Sault Ste. Marie" and "Overground." 35th Anniversary Hits Collection reveals Three Dog Night in 2004 not only enjoying the fruits of their labor, but maturing gracefully in the process.
