Hit ballads of the '70s and '80s are featured throughout Time Life's Romantically Yours series. There was a standard set (ten discs, 162 songs) and a deluxe set (18 discs, 258 songs), as well as individual volumes. Like the other installments in the series, Romantically Yours: When a Man Loves a Woman features nothing but hits across the styles of soft rock, adult contemporary, smooth soul, and quiet storm. Everything was a major hit, and only original studio versions appear here. Highlights of this volume include Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is," Larry Graham's "One in a Million You," the Stylistics' "You Make Me Feel Brand New," and, of course, Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman."
