AllMusic Review by

This import 16-song anthology contains some great tracks, but it doesn't come cheap. A near 30-dollar price tag will deter some would-be buyers in another direction. Patrice Rushen, the Crusaders, and others accompany Crawford on memorables like "Knocking on Heaven's Door," "Street Life," "Forget Me Nots," and shimmering versions of Rose Royce's "Wishing on a Star" and Brook Benton's "Rainy Night in Georgia." It includes the radio edit of "I'll Be Around," but, at these dollars, listeners will be left wanting the full version. Culling cream Randy Crawford tracks from her vast booty of albums makes for a helluva collection, but in this case it is pricey.
