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 fourth volume clocks in at well under half an hour, with Little Anthony & the Imperials' "I'm on the Outside (Looking In)," the Impressions' "I'm So Proud," the Shirelles' "Dedicated to the One I Love," Mel Carter's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me," and Linda Jones' "Hypnotized" figuring into the scheme, along with five others.
