AllMusic Review by

The Best of the Jones Girls culls tracks from the trio's sides for Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International. While you'll find their better-known sides like their million-seller "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else," the exotic Dexter Wansel-produced "Nights Over Egypt," and their original version of "Who Can Run To" (later a 1995 gold hit for Xscape), there are also little-known gems and radio-aired album tracks: an exquisite harmonized version of the Stylistics classic "Children of the Night," the chugging "(I Found) That Man of Mine," the languid "Love Don't Ever Say Goodbye," and the blues-tinged "Why You Wanna Do That to Me." Keni Burke produces the slamming "Keep It Comin'" and the airy "Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah." For good measure, group member Shirley Jones's number one R&B/Bunny Sigler-produced hit, "Do You Get Enough Love," is included.
