In 1998 the Simitar label, a division of Warner Special Products, released several budget-priced discs featuring number one hits from the '60s, '70s and '80s, loosely based around such themes as Lovin' Feelings, Party Time and Smooth Love. Each disc presents the original version of these popular singles on a 16-track CD. Number Ones: Silky Soul highlights include "Best of My Love" (the Emotions), "At Midnight (My Love Will Lift You Up)" (Rufus & Chaka Khan), "Never Knew Love Like This Before" (Stephanie Mills) and "Good Guys Only Win in the Movies" (Mel & Tim). Despite minor packaging flaws, Simitar's Number Ones is a decent budget-line series.
