AllMusic Review by

If you should happen to pick up a compilation bearing the St. Clair logo that also happens to look good, make sure you scan the back of the disc for a disclaimer. The possibility of seeing a phrase like "includes new stereo recordings by the original artists" is very high. Discs like that should be avoided, unless you're satisfied with inferior re-recordings and, in some cases, poorly recorded live material. For Lovers Only: Romantic Soul includes awful-to-passable versions of the Stylistics' "I'm Stone in Love with You," Kool & the Gang's "Cherish," Heatwave's "Always and Forever," and Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You." Nothing here compares to its original counterpart.
