AllMusic Review by

Playlist: The Very Best of Lou Rawls spotlights 14 tracks recorded for Capitol and Philadelphia International Records by the legendary smooth soul vocalist. A few classics -- “See You When I Git There,” “You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine” -- are combined with lesser-heard tunes. Unfortunately, four of his biggest hits, “Dead End Street,” “Tobacco Road,” "Love Is a Hurtin' Thing,” and “A Natural Man,” are included in a live medley instead of the full-length versions. Although this isn't a bad disc, there are far better collections available, offering more songs and better sound for not much more money.
