AllMusic Review by

In 2010, Edsel combined Too Hot to Handle and Central Heating into one package, while BBR issued individual expanded editions of Hot Property, Candles, and Current. Meanwhile, the 7T’s label put together The G.T.O. Singles Collection, a two-disc set covering the same years. If you picked up all the album reissues, which are packed with 12” versions and B-sides, this will be completely redundant, and not every great Heatwave song was issued as a single; “Find It in Your Heart,” for instance, is just about essential and not present here. Some might also be disappointed that the compilation is not thorough. The disco/extended versions of “The Groove Line” and “Boogie Nights” are not here, while they can be found on the Too Hot to Handle/Central Heating combo.
