AllMusic Review by

There's no denying that this odd mix, which ranges from Gladys Knight's sublime "Midnight Train to Georgia" and Marvin Gaye's redemptive "Sexual Healing" to Nina Simone's theatrical "To Be Young, Gifted and Black" and Patti Labelle's stomping "Lady Marmalade" is full of classic sides, but at ten tracks, it's pretty short and there really isn't any kind of prevailing theme holding things together. Still, a classic is a classic, and there are ten of them on Sony's R&B Classics.
