AllMusic Review by

Twelve years after they released Anthology, arguably the definitive career-spanning Brook Benton collection Rhino adapted the compilation for CD, releasing Endlessly: The Best of Brook Benton. Endlessly features three tracks less than Anthology, yet it doesn't suffer -- it remains a nearly flawless overview of Benton's career, featuring all of his big hits plus many terrific lesser-known singles. Every one of his great singles -- from "It's Just a Matter of Time," "Baby (You've Got What It Takes)," and "Kiddio" to "The Boll Weevil Song" and "Rainy Night in Georgia" -- are here, in a more concise and accessible form than Mercury's double-disc 40 Greatest Hits. That double-disc set remains an ideal choice for collectors, but less dedicated fans will find Endlessly to be essential.
