AllMusic Review by

As long as purists and vinyl fetishists continue to shell out the big bucks, the rarest Northern soul singles will continue to command astronomical prices on secondary markets like eBay. But those without their diligence, luck, and deep pockets can still enjoy the lost riches of '60s soul on CD, literally paying pennies for compilations of rare grooves collectively valued in the tens of thousands of dollars. Of particular note is the For Millionaires Only series, which consistently assembles only the scarcest singles ever to pack Northern dancefloors. Some of the third volume's entries are so rare they were mastered directly from vinyl, but the sound quality is for the most part solid throughout, and in any case the disc is a bargain at virtually any price given the cumulative market value of the music contained herein. Highlights include the New Wanderers' "Let Me Render My Service to You," George Pepp's "The Feeling Is Real," the Masqueraders' "That's the Same Thing," and the Combinations' "What You Gonna Do?"
