AllMusic Review by

Varese's You Turn Me On: The Very Best of Ian Whitcomb is a terrific 25-track single-disc collection that supplants Rhino's 1985 collection The Best of Ian Whitcomb. All of Whitcomb's hits -- "You Turn Me On," "N-E-R-V-O-U-S," "Where Did Robinson Crusoe Go With Friday on Saturday Night," "The Sporting Life" -- are featured, along with many singles, album cuts and a handful of unreleased tracks. It's true that Whitcomb's jaunty music-hall romps and silly humor can wear thin on some listeners, but there's no argument that this disc is the best CD collection yet assembled of his career.
