AllMusic Review by

Short of expanded reissues of Joyce Sims' albums for the Sleeping Bag label -- 1987’s Come into My Life and 1989’s All About Love -- this two-disc compilation is as exhaustive as it is going to get. It covers a significant chunk of the proper album material, as well as the singles and their accompanying club mixes -- a fair portion of which appears on CD for the first time. Naturally, each one of Sims' charting ‘80s singles is included: “All and All,” “Come into My Life” (easily the best surrogate, low-budget Loose Ends song recorded), “Love Makes a Woman” (her duet with Jimmy Castor), “Walk Away,” “Looking for a Love,” and “All About Love.”
