AllMusic Review by

Issued the same time as the Candi/Young Hearts Run Free two-for-one release, this set pairs Candi Staton's other two albums for Warner Bros., Music Speaks Louder Than Words and House of Love. Originally released in 1977, the former features three charting singles, including a version of the Gibb brothers' "Nights on Broadway" that reached the Top 20 of Billboard's R&B chart. The latter, from 1977, includes another Top 20 R&B single in the form of "Victim" (also a number three disco hit). There are four bonus tracks -- all single and 12" versions -- along with lengthy liner notes in a generous booklet.
