AllMusic Review by

This two-disc reissue packages the Delfonics' 1974 album Alive and Kicking with the rare Delfonics Return LP. Alive and Kicking is a mediocre album by Delfonics standards, although there are a few good moments. But the magic was gone by the mid-'70s, and the Delfonics were being surpassed by their rivals, like Blue Magic and the Stylistics, who benefited from far superior songs. They kept trying, but didn't click nearly as often, nor as much as needed. Delfonics Return contains a number of songs never available on the group's classic '70s LPs.
