Writing for Allmusic, critic Al Campbell wrote, "Super Hits samples ten tracks recorded by Blood, Sweat & Tears for Columbia Records in the late '60s and early '70s and includes the original versions of "Spinning Wheel," "You've Made Me So Very Happy" and "And When I Die." Ultimately, this collection isn't as detailed as Blood, Sweat & Tears Greatest Hits, but it's still a good bargain for the budget-conscious."[1]
