AllMusic Review by

One wonders what the point of a compilation like this really is. While it does have a dozen classic soul, R&B, and Motown tunes, they are -- to quote the fine print on the back of the package -- "professional re-creations and not renditions by the original artist." In other words, while they may sound relatively closed to the originals, they aren't. Why spend money to hear someone trying to imitate Smokey Robinson sing "Tears of a Clown" when the original version sung by him is readily available? Avoid this.
