AllMusic Review by

At ten tracks, this set of vintage early modern R&B is on the brief side, but it is varied enough to make a nice listen. Cuts like Lee Dorsey's “Ride Your Pony,” James & Bobby Purify's “I’m Your Puppet,” and James Carr's “Pouring Water on a Drowning Man” are all very different from each other but all are equally classic. Again, it’s a brief set, but what’s here is solid.
