AllMusic Review by

An invigorating compilation by Pat Kelly, an obvious devotee of Curtis Mayfield -- seven of the 19 tracks are Mayfield compositions. The Mayfield songs' boast two versions of "You'll Want Me Back" aka "You Don't Care," and his eerie rendition of "Minstrel & Queen" aka "Queen Majesty." Kelly wrote seven strong tracks, especially the bottom heavy "Sit and Cry," "Night and Day," and "Talk About Love." Enjoyable versions of "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Dark End of the Street" also contribute in making this a rollicking rocksteady adventure.
