AllMusic Review by

This is a four-song promotional sampler -- ostensibly released only to radio stations -- to ballyhoo Columbia's super-deluxe four-CD box set retrospective of these landmark fusion sessions. Hearing these sides ("Spanish Key," "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down, " "Great Expectations," and "The Little Blue Frog") in their edited form as radio- and jukebox-friendly 45 rpm singles is somewhat unsettling, but they're ultimately very effective in their abbreviated format. A collection of period pieces that actually work, and a nice, bite-sized introduction to this genius' latter-day meisterwork.
