AllMusic Review by

Remakes appear to be a part of life. So if somebody must redo Elvin Bishop's summer breeze "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," Henry Lee Summer is nobody's first choice, but Joe Walsh helps with some tasty licks. Then it's all the original hits by all the original stars: Cheap Trick's original music hall version of "I Want You to Want Me"; Sly, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Marvin Gaye all getting it on; shiny lost gems by the Emotions, Delphonics, and Cheryl Lynn. Plus the not-so-young dudes in Mott the Hoople and Wild Cherry playing that funky music. J.D. Souther and Eddie Money drop by and, as a result, this handy, nice-priced disc is one of the better '70s samplers on the market. Most of these folks haven't had a hit since, bless 'em. (Why does the mammoth "Hold Your Head Up" have to be truncated on a CD? Radio versions are no longer necessary.)
