AllMusic Review by

Even if you have other Curtis Mayfield compilations, this won't be added baggage. Six tracks represent his weaning from the Impressions period; the 23 others are prime cuts from his solo albums, three each from Curtis and Superfly, respectively. There's enough unfamiliar material to make this essential to the most fanatical Mayfield worshiper, including three Mayfield/Donny Hathaway collaborations; "Never Stop Loving Me," which previously appeared on Keni Burke's You're the Best LP, and a remake of his Gladys Knight & the Pips stomper "On and On."
