AllMusic Review by

Fourteen digitally remastered diamonds cropped from Prysock's previous albums: Today's Love Songs Tomorrow's, This Guy's in Love With You, and Rockin' Good Way. Prysock's big, deliberate baritone/bass voice is a heart stopper. The only miscue, but nothing major, is his rendition of Solomon Burke's "Got to Get You off My Mind," where he seems uncomfortable with the blues arrangement and the simplistic lyrics. But "All My Lovin' Was in Vain," "Everything Must Change" (he wows you with the first note), "Good Rockin' Tonight," "I Wonder Where Our Love Has Gone," all deserve encores. His incredible renditions of "It's All in the Game" and "Rainy Night in Georgia" proves beyond a doubt that Arthur Prysock was the man!
