AllMusic Review by

On this, a solid Chuck Jackson import, the vocalist's rich, distinctive baritone overflows with passion on 16 of his best recordings. The album Includes his signature tune "I Don't Wanna Cry," Burt Bacharach and Hal David's ultra soulful "I Wake Up Crying," "Breaking Point," and "The Broken Heart (That You Gave Me)." Lesser-known but equally as powerful tracks like "Forget About Me" and Van McCoy's exquisite "I Can't Stand to See You Cry" (also recorded by Jerry Butler) make this an essential.
