Time Life's Romantically Yours series compiles major hits from the oft-intersecting styles of soft rock, adult contemporary, smooth soul, and quiet storm. The sequencing often seems randomized, but the volumes feature all the original recordings, and they're ideal for casual music buyers. Romantically Yours: Truly is dominated by '70s and '80s hits, such as Diana Ross' "Touch Me in the Morning," Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On," and, of course, Lionel Richie's "Truly." Time Life boasts that Romantically Yours contains "the greatest love songs" of those two decades, but a few of inclusions across the series were released during the '60s and '90s. That's the case with the Moody Blues' number two 1967 single "Nights in White Satin," included here.
