AllMusic Review by

The Slow Jams compilations of romantic soul ballads are obviously not designed for the ravenous collector: there are only ten tracks per disc, the liner notes are informative but basic, and most of the selections are well-known hits. But if you just want some basic highlights of lush '70s soul, or you're giving this to someone with a short attention span, the series does a respectable job. Hits by stars likeAl Green, the Stylistics, the Isleys, the O'Jays, and Barry White are mixed with cuts by lesser-known singers like Sylvia, Norman Connors, and Major Harris.
