AllMusic Review by

Excellent 28-track compilation of her work for the Sue label in the '60s leaves the domestic Collectables anthologies in the dust in terms of quantity and quality. Has all of the significant R&B hits she recorded for the company, including "That's How Heartaches Are Made," "Handful of Memories," "Who's Gonna Take Care of Me," "It'll Never Be Over for Me," "Only Those in Love," and "No Time for Pity." It's also the best showcase for her versatility, going from near-gospel to string-laden uptown pop/soul, and even a bit of blues, straight pop, and jazz-inflected numbers. Her influence on Dusty Springfield can easily be detected on "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face" and "Doodlin'," both of which Springfield covered in the '60s.
