AllMusic Review by

For those neither willing nor able to take the plunge, Time Life's 11-disc Sweet Soul of the ‘70s box was broken down into six volumes. Sweet Soul of the '70s: Stone in Love with You is one of the five two-disc volumes (to go with one single-disc set), and it emphasizes hits from the earlier half of the decade. It’s not particularly broad, containing five songs from Aretha Franklin, three each from George Benson, the Stylistics, and Spinners, and two from some others, but no selection is debatable. Among the highlights: Isaac Hayes' “Theme from Shaft,” Sylvia’s “Pillow Talk,” the Blackbyrds' “Walking in Rhythm,” the Staple Singers' “I’ll Take You There,” and Timmy Thomas' “Why Can’t We Live Together.”
