AllMusic Review by

A pretty boring album of hits that everybody probably already has, by artists everybody knows. The only plus is that there are no shorties (the cuts are full length), and it even includes both sides of the Isley Brothers' "That Lady." The problem here is that you can listen to any classic soul radio program and hear these songs on a daily basis. Friedman/Fairfax tried to make this unit unique by including a book, but it's what's in the grooves that count -- and these grooves contain an unimaginative collection of the same old, same old.
