AllMusic Review by Steve Leggett

A fine songwriter and tasteful guitarist who possesses a strong, gritty voice, Bobby Womack has been turning out his brand of urban gospel-soul for more than 40 years, beginning with the single "Lookin' for a Love" in 1962. This stripped-down set, the first volume in a two-volume career overview that has also been issued as a budget box, bounces all over the place, and seems a bit scattershot when stripped away from its companion volume. It does have Womack's inventive rearrangements of "Fly Me to the Moon" and "California Dreamin'" and his big early-'70s singles "That's the Way I Feel About 'Cha" and "Woman's Gotta Have It," but too much is missing here (most of it is on the other volume) to make this set particularly useful. Since both volumes are available in a single package, it just makes sense to look for that.
