"This CD serves as a nice sampler to the genius that was David Ruffin. From 'Walk Away From Love" to "Off and On" the power in Ruffin's voice is ever present. Truly one of the greatest singers of all time."
"A Terrific David Ruffin's Sound"

"The songs of David Ruffin on this CD are so romantic and relaxing. Good songs to listen to when you come home from a tiring day of work. Walk Away From Love, My Whole World Ended (The Moment You Left Me), Everlasting Love, Put A Little Love In Your Heart, and You're My Peace Of Mind are my favorites. I'd never heard the others before acquiring this CD, but they were just as great to listen to. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone, especially if they are a David Ruffin's fan and even if they aren't, they surely would enjoy this CD."
Good Collection from the ex-Temptation

"This is a good, budget find; Another of those "Motown Legends" CD's which collect a wide variety of tracks, including some hard to find songs.
Of course, David Ruffin was a great vocalist, though I preferred his work with the Temptations over his solo work. Upon listening to this collection, I found that he did some good solo work.
The 2 big hits "My Whole World Ended" & "Walk Away From Love" are here. I always liked "World" which always reminds me of a classic track from his Temptations days. When "Walk Away from Love" came out in the mid-1970's I have to admit that I didn't care for it. I always thought Ruffin's voice sounded worn out. Hearing the song again, it does have a good arrangement & is enjoyable in it's own way.
The "World" follow up single, "I've Lost Everything" is well sung, but the lyrics are awful and over wrought. Another single, the gospel-like ballad "I'm So Glad I Fell For You" is quite good, though slightly overproduced.
I always thought "Blood Donors Needed" seemed like a strange title for a song. It isn't a bad number, a kind of funky, "let's all help each other" Curtis Mayfield styled song.
I remember hearing the song "Off & On" which I think was done by somebody else. Ruffin's version is very nice - a good mid-tempo song. He also does decent versions of "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" & "Everlasting Love" (which inspired his friend, Carl Carlton, to record the song & have a huge hit with it).
Van McCoy was involved in some of these selections & his involvement in nicely evident, showing that he had a lot more in him than just the "Hustle".
So, a nice budget priced collection that displays David Ruffin's talents quite nicely. Worth checking out before investing in a more expensive collection."
