AllMusic Review by

What you see on the cover is exactly what you get. Touch Me in the Morning features readings of baby-makers from soul music's yesteryear. The players and vocalists include Will Downing, Kim Waters, Pamela Williams, Chris Davis, Wayne Bruce, Vanessa Williams, Eddie Baccus, and others. Whether it's Michael Masser and Ronald Dean Miller's title track, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's "Me & Mrs. Jones" and "Close the Door," or Thom Bell's "Betcha by Golly Wow," the effect is the same: seamless, flawlessly executed, and dreamy. This is pillow-talk music, made not for paying attention to, but for providing that certain backdrop for other activities, and as such, it delivers, but the cover art is worse than cheesy. Points off for it.
