Editorial Reviews:
Dirty Linen (p.64) - "[It's] just the chart-topping songs in pop, soul, gospel, blues, country, and R&B that gave Charles his legendary status as the consummate performer and one of the most diverse singers of his generation." Living Blues (pp.60-61) - "It's the most comprehensive Charles retrospective ever assembled on a single disc. four hits from his groundbreaking days at Atlantic -- 'What'd I Say,' 'Drown In My Own Tears,' 'I've Got A Woman,' and 'A Fool For You' -- are included." Blender (Magazine) (p.65) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a solid selection....His voice leaped out with anarchic savvy. He made every song soulful."
