AllMusic Review by

Boney M's slick, toned-down disco approach always seemed to work best when the group worked from a base that included lightly steamed versions of traditional Caribbean fare, and the songs that stand the test of time best on this budget best-of set are the ones that have that sort of pedigree, like the bright and innocent sounding "I See a Boat on the River." Also here are the group's 1977 hit "Daddy Cool" and the slightly overwrought (but it's such a great song it doesn't matter) version of "Rivers of Babylon" from 1978.
