AllMusic Review by

Ten diverse R&B songs, from the Ravens' 1957 "Dear One" (touted as their last great recording) to the Moments' 1970 smash "Love on a Two Way Street." A record you buy because you love a few of the tunes but don't want the complete albums by any of the artists. Rhythm & Blues Collection, Volume 2 includes James Brown's "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," Brook Benton's endearing "Rainy Night in Georgia," Chuck Berry's rollicking "Maybellene," and Billy Stewart's exciting interpretation of "Summertime." And there's additional treats from the Ramsey Lewis Trio, Gene Chandler, the Students, and the Dells. Every track is digitally remastered from the original analog recordings.
