AllMusic Review by

A scrumptious compilation of 20 soul-drenched love jams, with contributions by everyone from Barry White to Latimore. Group vocal sounds are mingled with solo performers, along with mellow music from self-contained bands like the Gap Band and the Ohio Players. Most of these tracks are familiar to soul enthusiasts, but it is good to hear Al Wilson's classic "Show and Tell," Leon Haywood's "I Wanta Do Something Freaky to You," and Johnny Bristol's "Hang on in There" again, since they are not as readily available as some of the other selections.
