AllMusic Review by

There’s probably a better way to celebrate “35 years of soul.” This Greatest Hits, oddly enough, is a compacted edition (not advertised as such, for obvious reasons) of another Greatest Hits title released roughly seven years prior. It is that Greatest Hits minus three songs, namely “I Wanna Thank You,” “The Morning After,” and “Never Let You Down.” Some casual fans will find the peculiar subtractions to be a deal breaker, and it’s unfortunate that the live version of “Joy and Pain” remains in place of the studio version. Even so, each one of the group’s major hits -- including the Top Ten R&B singles “Workin’ Together,” “Feel That You’re Feelin,” “Southern Girl,” “Running Away,” “Love Is the Key,” “Too Many Games,” and “Silky Soul” -- can be found here.
