"... Isaacs kicks off the set with his declaration of independence, 'No Footstool,' but a quartet of militant cultural numbers -- a fierce 'A Riot,' a simmering 'Jailer,' a heartfelt 'Village of the Under Privileged' and the powerful return-to-Africa-themed 'Border' -- fuels this set. All are classic Isaacs, with the latter featuring the sublime harmonies of the Tamlins, who backed the singer on both these sets. Intercut between these cultural masterpieces are equally superb romantic offerings, notably the evocative 'Once Again' and the gorgeous 'Tumbling Tears,' the latter another massive hit. Like its predecessor, this is no career-spanning best-of set, but a superb album that does indeed include much of Isaacs' best work with Ranglin during the mid-'70s." --JoAnn Greene (All Music Guide)
