All Music Guide - Tim Sendra

The best cuts are among the best soul songs ever; Lou Rawls' "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine," Teddy Pendergrass' "Turn Out the Lights," and the O'Jays' "Usta Be My Girl" are all 100 percent Philly soul.

If they had packaged them less cheesily and boiled the two discs down into one, they really might have had something essential.
