Love Ballads to Remember is a decent, mid-line collection containing 14 hits from the vaults of RCA Records. Although the packaging is a little skimpy, all of the recordings are the original hit versions, which makes the compilation a decent choice for casual listeners. Among the highlights are "O-o-h Child" (Five Stairsteps), "Without You" (Harry Nilsson), "Don't Cry Out Loud" (Melissa Manchester), and "Here You Come Again" (Dolly Parton). The one minor complaint with this compilation is the inclusion of Perry Como's "It's Impossible" and Melanie's "Brand New Key"; while both are decent tracks, they seem a bit out of place in this setting.
