AllMusic Review by

Richmond's Hits From 1966 is the kind of disc that should never have been made. Sure there is some great music here, and any disc with "98.6" can't be all bad. But at only eight tracks, it really can't satisfy anyone's needs. Add to that the fact that half the songs (Sam & Dave's "Hold On! I'm Comin'," Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman," B.J. Thomas's "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," and Tommy Roe's "Hooray for Hazel") are re-recordings that are vastly inferior to the originals, and you can see that this disc is a waste of the plastic and paper it took to make it.
