Cleopatra's Selecter Collection doesn't quite live up to its potential. Instead of featuring the original versions of the the group's greatest hits, there are re-recorded takes of "On My Radio," as well as sub-par live tracks and poor mastering of the original takes. In short, it pales next to the previous compilation, Selected Selecter Selections, which was a fine career summary, containing the original versions of all of the group's best-known songs.
