AllMusic Review by

No doubt a bootleg, City of Angels Oldies even lacks the common decency to list the artists they're ripping off -- despicable. But if loving this is wrong, you don't wanna be right -- this is sweet soul at its best, boasting a moody, late-night feel and gorgeous group harmonies. There's not much more to say -- the review's already more comprehensive than the package notes -- but highlights include "Temptation's 'Bout to Get Me," "Black Girl," and the delightfully odd Love Is Just Like a Baseball Game."
