AllMusic Review by

So what do you want? You get "Wack Wack" and "Soulful Strut" on the same disc, as well as eight others including "Baby Your Light Is Out" and the trio's inimitable read of "The Beat Goes On." This group may have been recording in the same vein as the Ramsey Lewis Trio at the time, but the groove was grittier, greasier, and nastier, and they put their songs down on tape than merely recording them. This is both an excellent introduction and a killer little best of by one of the great under-sung groups in soul-jazz.
