This ten-track budget compilation, released by Rhino's Flashback division, is of no help to the most casual LeVert fan, who should expect to get the Top Ten R&B singles "(Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop) Goes My Mind," "Addicted to You," and "Baby I'm Ready." Not one of those hits is here. Some of the other notable singles -- such as "Just Coolin'" and "Casanova" -- are included, but they don't make up for the missing essential cuts. The cover shot, which looks like an outtake from Rhino's Smooth Grooves series, doesn't do justice to LeVert, either. The 14-track The Best of LeVert, released in 2001, should be sought instead.
