AllMusic Review by

Although there are some undeniably timeless love songs included in this brief collection of Motown singles, including Stevie Wonder's "My Cherie Amour," Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)," and Smokey Robinson's late-era hit "Cruisin'," given the sheer richness and depth of the Motown vault, this set seems quite a bit underwhelming. What's here is fine, but there just isn't much of it, and where oh where are the Temptations and the Four Tops?
