AllMusic Review by

Not to be confused with any volume of The Right Stuff's excellent Slow Jams series, Platinum Disc's own Slow Jams Collection is skimpy at ten tracks, but it does feature a good amount of undeniably classic quiet storm material. Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," Minnie Riperton's "Loving You," Teddy Pendergrass' "Close the Door," Freddie Jackson's "You Are My Lady," and Shalamar's "This Is for the Lover in You" are here with five other singles that more or less exemplify the most romantic, slow-tempoed side of '70s and '80s R&B. However, almost all of these songs have been compiled many times over, and the packaging here is quite cheap, so the only people who will find this to be useful will be those who own next to no '70s/'80s soul.
