AllMusic Review by

The second entry in the Roots of Rhythm book/CD series concentrates on the romantic end of R&B, though as always keeping an eye on the style of each song. The 14 selections for this volume are fine choices, with Billie Holliday, the Temptations, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, the Drifters, the Platters, and Otis Redding among those represented, but making the selection must have been a nightmare, considering that a packed four-CD box would only barely touch on this area of R&B history.
