AllMusic Review by

This greatest-hits collection contains some of Earl Grant's most memorable recordings. Grant showcases his organ virtuosity on every cut, and throws in some skillful piano solos for good measure. His rendition of Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" stands out. Grant had every genre down pat, as he proves on Ray Charles' bluesy "Sweet Sixteen Bars." He displays a quality singing voice on the Caribbean-flavored "House of Bamboo," "I Can't Stop Loving You," "At the End of a Rainbow," and "Old Man River." Grant's organ on "Ebb Tide" is as eerily beautiful as it was years ago. Curiously, Decca omitted Grant's only pop hit (and first recording for the label), "The End."
