AllMusic Review by

Following on from the 2000 release The Best of Cold Chillin', Landspeed packaged Biz Markie's first two LPs, 1988's Goin' Off and 1989's The Biz Never Sleeps, into this two-fer package. Just like the best-of, this one has almost all of his favorite tracks -- "Pickin Boogers," "Vapors," "Make the Music With Your Mouth Biz," "Nobody Beats the Biz," "Just a Friend," and "Biz in Harmony." Yes, it does add a few that the best-of didn't have, but there are a few great tracks missing to recommend it to any but the most committed fans. If The Best of Cold Chillin' wasn't enough for you, this is the logical next step.
