AllMusic Review by

A brief compilation of Stax tracks from P-Vine Records. The Dramatics and Rufus Thomas blow the roof off with "Get up and Get Down" and "Do the Funky Penguin," respectively. Sparse but delightful instrumentals by the Mar-Keys ("Never Love a Man") and Booker T. & the MG's ("Light My Fire") are wonderful excursions. The Sweet Inspirations, Isaac Hayes, and William Bell's self-condemning "I Forgot to Be Your Lover" complete this tasty appetizer.
