"While you might expect Millie Jackson's work to sound very dated this long after release, I found almost the opposite to be true. Yes, there is a decidedly 70's feel to many cuts here - a vibe that generally works to her advantage. But material that was tinted by "raciness" at the time of its release feels very tame by contemporary standards and it turns out that Jackson's infamous salaciousness was NOT the only appeal; most of these songs stand up on their own even without controversy or scandal to sell them. What's more, the collection has been very well selected and one realizes for perhaps the first time how varied her output was and how versatile a singer she could be. (Since most of her individual albums were heavily "themed," this versatility has never really been showcased before.) Yes, she frequently liked to play the role of the shameless "other woman" and yes, she sounds a lot like Gladys Knight. But she also has a distinctive style and makes some very interesting choices. She's as risky as she is risque.The collection also steps carefully through her '80s material, which degenerated over time into bad self-parody. Some will no doubt consider this too much Millie, or be put off by the of-their-era "raps" and arrangements in several cuts here. But overall, this is an enjoyable, illuminating, and certainly definitive career retrospective."

"Sure, there are a few songs that were left out ("Put Something Down On It") and some others that should have been left out ("I'm Through Trying to Prove My Love to You"); but this is a great collection of Millie's songs. The packaging is great, too: the booklet includes an essay, complete track information, and a discography. There is only one track ("Symphony") from her live albums and nothing from her "Just a Lil' Bit Country" album, but otherwise this is a good representation of her 1972-1983 Spring records career.
She is super bad

"forget about the rawness of her material just focus on her voice.everything with her goes hand in hand.she has always told it like it is and wasn't fronting.that's what seperates her from many who do it only for shock value but can't carry a tone.she is a very real artist.this set showcases her great talent breakway,angel in your arms,hurt so good.she has always been to the point and real with her feelings.a true artist.and person."
