AllMusic Review by

There are so many Barry White compilations out there that it gets increasingly difficult to navigate between them and ascertain the differences. This one, issued in the wake of the soul giant's untimely passing, may not be definitive in terms of track selection (that honor probably goes to the two-disc ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS), but in terms of relative bang-for-buck, this budget-priced collection is hotly tipped. It contains pretty much the same songs as the classic Casablanca GREATEST HITS album whose silver cover graced bachelor pads across the land in the 1970s, but lists for less. Hardcore fans might be swayed by the double-disc compilation's heft, but casual fans will find this a perfect way to sample the lush, romantic disco/R&B sound of the late pioneer.
