AllMusic Review by

Ray Parker, Jr.'s former bandmates in Raydio probably wouldn't want to be associated with the leader's breakout novelty solo hit, "Ghostbusters," but life can be pretty unfair. While this compilation is three-tenths solo Parker (the other two tracks coming from his first purely solo album, The Other Woman), the remainder is eaten up by cuts off the four Raydio albums. Out of the several Parker/Raydio compilations, this is one of the worst, because it fails to include "Jack and Jill," "You Can't Change That," and plenty of other deserving numbers. [Note: this has the same exact track listing as Collectables' Featuring Ghostbusters, released in 2004, though it does have a different form of horrible artwork.]
