AllMusic Review by

Gary Puckett & the Union Gap were originally an actual band, but by the time the musicians entered the recording studio with producer and songwriter Jerry Fuller, the focus fell on Puckett's strong, smooth baritone voice, and the Union Gap part of the equation was buried under a MOR barrage of strings, horns, and choirs. The formula worked, however, and the group enjoyed five Top 40 hits between 1967 and 1969, including "Woman, Woman," "Lady Willpower," the dangerously pedophilic "Young Girl," and the majestic, soaring "Over You," all of which are featured in this collection.
