AllMusic Review by

Buddah's Between the Sheets is one of the finest Millie Jackson collections ever assembled, largely because it avoids the kitsch of her salacious soul and finds her playing it straight, more or less. The compilation concentrates on her late-'70s and early-'80s material, balancing hits with lesser-known singles and album tracks. What all the material has in common is that it's smooth soul and quiet storm, something Jackson isn't exactly known for. However, this 16-track compilation offers proof that Millie Jackson is a fine soul singer who doesn't need her bawdy schtick to make an impression -- and, as such, it's of interest not only to fans, but to doubting Thomases as well.
