AllMusic Review by

Like all other releases from Rhino's budget-line Flashback division, this disc is limited to ten songs and is packaged in remarkably bad graphic design. And, like a very high percentage of Flashback's releases, the disc plays fast and loose with its subject's back catalog, including a few crucial hits but leaving several out in favor of lesser singles and album cuts. Cisco Kid and Other Hits contains "The Cisco Kid," "All Day Music," and "Why Can't We Be Friends," but no introduction to War is recommendable when "Low Rider," "Spill the Wine," "The World Is a Ghetto," and "Galaxy" (just to name a few) are not included.
