AllMusic Review by

In 2012, BGO combined Natalie Cole's first three studio albums (Inseparable, Natalie, and Unpredictable). Two years later, the label gave her fourth, fifth, and sixth proper studio albums similar treatment. Spread across two discs, this set compiles the Billboard number one R&B album Thankful (1977), I Love You So (which narrowly missed the Top Ten in 1979), and Don't Look Back (a Top 20 entry in 1980). While not as great as her earlier work, these albums include some of her most popular singles, including "Our Love," "Annie Mae," and "Stand By," as well as the phenomenal deep album cut "La Costa." As with the 2012 package, there are no bonus tracks.
