AllMusic Review by

It's one thing to recycle popular songs that have been compiled on dozens of other discs, but it's another thing entirely when inferior versions appear instead of the originals. Below the track listing on each volume of St. Clair's Gold Collection series, the consumer is informed -- in very small lettering -- that the songs are not the original versions. Instead, they are either live takes or "new stereo recordings." These comps should be hard to give away, let alone sell. Gold Collection: More Soul Ballads follows suit, with undesirable versions of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," Clarence Carter's "Drift Away," the Trammps' "You Make Me Feel Brand New," Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' "I Miss You," and the Platters' "My Prayer."
