AllMusic Review by

Video Soul: Best Soul of the '80s, Vol. 1 is a solid 12-track collection of urban R&B hits from the early '80s that's equally divided between uptempo dance numbers ("Funkytown," "Working My Way Back to You, " "He's So Shy") and smooth ballads ("One in a Million You, " "Shining Star, " "Just the Two of Us"). It's a little brief, but it does capture the feeling of the era, and it, along with its successor, offer a strong overview of early-'80s R&B.
