Their Greatest Hits, Collectables' brief compilation on Chicago teen soulsters the Five Stairsteps, includes among its ten tracks several of the group's biggest, and best, hits. "World of Fantasy," "Danger! She's a Stranger," and "Come Back" are near-perfect performances, benefiting from Curtis Mayfield's elegantly brassy arrangements and the smooth harmonizing of the Burke family. And, of course, "O-o-h Child" (the group's biggest hit) makes an appearance as well. Ten tracks may be all the Five Stairsteps that some listeners want, but the group recorded many more great songs.
