AllMusic Review by

The Right Stuff's Slow Jams series devoted four volumes to R&B ballads of the '60s. Though it's more than a little irritating that these four discs could've been compacted onto two discs, each one is solid from front to back, with classics that any self-respecting fan of soul music needs in some form. This third volume clocks in at just over 30 minutes, with Jimmy Ruffin's "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted," Sam & Dave's "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby," Garnet Mimms' "For Your Precious Love," Mitty Collier's "I Had a Talk With My Man," and Solomon Burke's "If You Need Me" figuring into the scheme, along with six others.
