AllMusic Review by

Ten classic love jams from the archives of Philadelphia International Records. Music lovers will be familiar with enduring tracks such as, "You'll Never Find a Love Like Mine," a big hit for Lou Rawls, "If You Don't Know Me By Know," the much recorded classic originally done by Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, and the pop sounding, "When Will I See You Again," by the Three Degrees. Less popular gems like the Ebony's "It's Forever," the Stylistics' super slick "Hurry Up This Way Again," and the mighty O'Jays' testimonial "Sunshine," written by Bunny Sigler and Phil Hurtt are welcomed additions, as is the Intruders' R&B classic "I Wanna Know Your Name," complete with a rap by Little Sonny. The Jones Girls sound head over hills in love on "I Just Love the Man." A good but brief package for a CD. CBS could have tacked some more songs on this disc.
