Most of the entries in Universal's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection series function best as budget collections, perfect for listeners who'd rather not bother paying a few extra dollars for a longer collection. Things are far different for this volume, spotlighting Motown second-line act Jimmy Ruffin, who reached the pop charts several times during the late '60s but never had a solid CD compilation before this one. It certainly leads with the right track, his sole Top Ten entry, the beautiful Motown nugget "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted." And since Ruffin only recorded a few LPs for the label, there's nothing major missing from this set and much that's good: the R&B hits "Don't You Miss Me a Little Bit Baby" and "I've Passed This Way Before," his 1970 cover of "Stand by Me" with brother David as a duet, and one of the best non-hits in Motown history, "As Long as There Is L-O-V-E Love." It's only 11 tracks, but with few other Jimmy Ruffin collections even in print, this is the one to get. ~ John Bush

The Neglected Jimmy Ruffin! Music Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- November, 7, 2014

Jimmy ruffin is often forgotten in motown circles simply because he was overshadowed by his younger brother David but in 1966, Jimmy has one of Motown greatest hits with "What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted!" That song put Jimmy on the musical map and with this CD, all of Jimmy best tunes are here! Even the Temptations recorded a lot of Jimmy's material! As I write this review, Jimmy is in intensive care in a Las Vegas hospital so say a prayer , buy this CD and show your support for Jimmy!He needs your love-Thanks!
