AllMusic Review by

Spreading his fingers over the history of electronic dance music, from the '70s to the '90s, Frankie Knuckles mixed a solid collection of tracks, definitely focused more on contemporary house but also stretching back to the heyday of disco and jazz-funk. Knuckles ably sprinkles George Duke's "I Want You for Myself," Candido's Latin classic "Thousand Finger Man," Billy Ocean's "Nights (Feel Like Getting Down)," even a song from ex-Time singer Alexander O'Neal. While the first disc concentrates more on the old school of dance, the second captures the house scene of the early '90s with tracks from Soul II Soul ("Back to Life"), Lisa Stansfield ("Set Your Loving Free"), Jestofunk ("I'm Gonna Love You"), and Donell Rush ("Symphony").
