All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
The Right Stuff takes some of the high points of this jazz-funk supergroup's all-too-brief career and compiles them into one tidy little package. Sharp musicianship, crisp production, and creative songwriting make up for some of the off-key moments of vocal delivery, but the band really gets rocking with their 11-minute disco-tinged workout of Stevie Wonder's classic "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours." Most of their records have been out of print for quite some time, so unless you are a daring collector this compilation is definitely the way to go.

    Funk as it ought to be

    The Right Stuff is the Right Stuff. A perfect mix of Stuff's five albums. All one has to do is listen to any of the tracks to understand why these 6 musicians were the best studio musician around. Chris Parker does the group true justice with his selections. Listening to the CD brought back memories of listening to them live at Seventh Avenue South. The sad part is that with the passing of Richard and Eric, their unique sound will never be heard live again.
