AllMusic Review by

Old School Cruizin' with Peaches & Herb is a shoddy ten-track compilation from the Thump label. While most Peaches & Herb anthologies cover either the '60s incarnation or the '70s/'80s incarnation, this one switches back and forth, and it doesn't do it particularly well. It does contain some of the duo's biggest '60s singles, including "Love Is Strange" (number 16 R&B, 1967) and the early Gamble & Huff composition "(We'll Be) United" (number 11 R&B, 1968). However, two of the other songs from that era here failed to chart. The same can be said of the three '80s cuts, all of which were pulled from the 1983 Columbia album Remember, which few remember. As of 2013, The Best of Peaches & Herb: Love Is Strange remained the best source for the duo's '60s hits, while 20th Century Masters served the same purpose for the '70s/'80s singles.
