All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This low-priced disc is far and away the best single-CD compilation ever issued of the Grass Roots' work, 16 chart singles covering every phase of their history, from 1966's "Where Were You When I Needed You" in its actual hit version thru "Let's Live for Today" and "Midnight Confessions" to their last hit, 1972's "The Runway."

The material has been remastered in state-of-the-art sound, giving one a chance to appreciate the production and engineering as well as the playing, which regardless of whether it was provided by L.A.'s best session musicians or members of the actual band is extraordinarily polished and quite powerful -- the piano, drums, and bass on "Sooner or Later" sound like they're in the same room with the listener, and the singing seems even more up-close and personal. The annotation also explains the group's somewhat confusing formation, and their evolution from a folk-rock band to one of the most successful white pop-soul outfits of their era, closer in spirit to the Fifth Dimension than to Bob Dylan, Roger McGuinn, et al.
