AllMusic Review by

This ten-track budget compilation from Sony covers the basics from Cheryl Lynn's early Columbia albums -- her first four, from 1978's Cheryl Lynn through 1983's Preppie. Unlike several other volumes in the S.O.U.L. series, there's no playing around here -- no dodgy live recordings. It does function as a decent summary of the era it covers, though it's not extensive enough to feature tremendous album cuts like "I Just Wanna Be Your Fantasy." "Got to Be Real," "Shake It Up Tonight," "Georgy Porgy," "Encore," and six other significant songs from Lynn's back catalog are featured here.
