AllMusic Review by

The third volume of Sequel's Ben E. King anthology series is one of its strongest entries, which is not entirely surprising given that it is built upon one of King's strongest original albums. In addition to containing King's hits "Don't Play That Song" and "Stand by Me" (which were on the original LP), plus some fine album cuts, the five bonus tracks extended the range of the collection into some more diverse stylistic territory, and even the comparative filler is enjoyable and interesting.
