AllMusic Review by

The Right Stuff's Slow Jams series devoted four volumes to R&B ballads of the '60s. Though it's more than a little irritating that these four discs could've been compacted onto two discs, each one is solid from front to back, with classics that any self-respecting fan of soul music needs in some form. This first volume clocks in at under 40 minutes, with Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman," Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is," Aretha Franklin's "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man," the Dells' "Stay in My Corner," and Barbara Lewis' "Hello Stranger" figuring into the scheme, along with six others.
