Well, not all of his greatest hits--there're only 10 tracks here. Of course, some of them certainly deserve the appellation, like "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," "Get Up Offa That Thing." "It's Too Funky in Here," and of course, "Cold Sweat" (this is the studio version, incidentally, not as claimed here a track from LIVE AT THE APOLLO VOL. II). The rest of the stuff here is, however, much less familiar, but no less worthy, the standouts including "For Goodness Sakes, Look at Those Cakes" (which is about exactly what you think it's about) and "Sayin' It and Doin' It," which is probably the first R&B song to combine musings on both sex and Watergate.
