The omission of Stewart's heartfelt "How Nice It Is," one of his seven best singles, is the only sore spot. Compilers always overlook the tension-filled ballad on these short collections (11 songs). Stewart's six other gems -- "Strange Feeling," "I Do Love You," "Sitting in the Park," "Cross My Heart," "Summertime," and "Secret Love" -- sparkle like diamonds with their digitally remastered makeovers. Also solid are "Everyday I Have the Blues," with vocal accompaniment by the Dells, and "Reap What You Sow," featuring the Jewels. ~ Andrew Hamilton

The Best of Billy Stewart - 20th Century Masters Music Lover: from Forest Hills, NY -- July, 2, 2008

I am a die-hard old school R&B lover. I lost all my original 45's and LP's a long time and have been trying to set up my collection again. I Do Love You and Sitting in the Park by Billy Stewart of my two favorite songs of that time. It brings me joy and wonderful memories of listening to them at hookie parties and falling in love for the first time. Today's music may have one hit wonders, but the old school love songs are in a class by themselves. I love this collection. Thank you for bringing it back to all of us - the old school real R&B lovers!
