AllMusic Review by

The title is a bit of a misnomer, as you could count up on the fingers of both hands all the early hits that aren't on this 15-track collection. But if it's latter-day Marvin you're looking for -- from "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" through tracks like "Let's Get It On" and "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" -- this set will fill the bill nicely, despite the utter lack of decent liner notes or recording date information. There's some great music here; just don't expect to fill your Marvin Gaye collection with this one disc, and you'll be just fine. [When Motown remastered and reissued the set in 2000, two tracks were added: "Ain't That Peculiar" and "I'll Be Doggone."]
