AllMusic Review by

This 20-song collection focuses mostly on their late '60s peak, including all of the hit singles -- "Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie," "Keep the Ball Rollin', " and the much smaller chart items "Strawberry Shortcake, " "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music, " "The Singles Game, " and "Change Your Mind." Philadelphia soul at its peppiest and poppiest, it's pleasant listening, but the somewhat formulaic and repetitious feel means that most listeners will be satisfied by the two big hits. And bigger fans probably won't be thrilled by the inclusion of three songs from the mid-'70s and a cut from 1993.
