AllMusic Review by

Time-Life's Body + Soul: Soul of the '60s is an 18-track collection of second-rank pop-soul licensed from a variety of labels. A step down from Time-Life's usually impeccable standards, this one doesn't rate nearly as highly -- it's a bit short and isn't as uniformly excellent as the label's known for. Still, there are plenty of cross-licensed hits, including "Tell It Like It Is," Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' "Ooo Baby Baby," the Dells' "Stay in My Corner," the Delfonics' "La-La Means I Love You," and James & Bobby Purify's "I'm Your Puppet."
