AllMusic Review by

Masters' 20 songs cover every era and style of Jackie Wilson's Hall of Fame career from "Reet Petite," "Doggin' Around," the operatic "Danny Boy," and the uptown Chicago sounds of "Whispers" and "You Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher." Ballads "To Be Loved" and "A Woman, a Lover, a Friend" mix well with midtempo items like "Chain Gang" and "I Get the Sweetest Feeling," and upbeat jams like "Shake, Shake, Shake" and "Baby Workout." Wilson made too many albums for a 20-track CD to be definitive, but this is a heaping helping of his best recordings.
