AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's Love Songs series, like other releases from the label, features only a handful of original recordings per volume. Poorly recorded live versions and studio re-recordings are far more common. The label specifies which selections are live, but it does not bother to note which ones are inferior studio remakes. That alone is a case for ignoring the whole series. Among the many reasons to avoid this volume: substandard versions of Rose Royce's "Wishing on a Star," Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," Kool & the Gang's "Cherish," Color Me Badd's "All 4 Love," the Deele's "Two Occasions," and Heatwave's "Always and Forever."
