"...The thinking, imaginative brother who rocks my world every time is the one who makes me 'love tapes'--thematic, homemade compilations that spell out all that's in his heart....SMOOTH GROOVES is pretty close to the ultimate anthology...beautiful and hopeful--like relationships should be..."

Smooth Grooves: A Sensual Collection, Vol. 3 collects more seductive slow jams and quiet storm ballads, including the Stylistics' "Break Up to Make Up," Aretha Franklin's "Something He Can Feel," the Delfonics' "Hey Love," Ray's "Special Lady," and New Birth's "It's Been a Long Time." Tracks by Tower of Power, Rene & Angela, Blue Magic, and the Floaters are among the other highlights of this set, which does an admirable job of collecting popular and lesser-known singles from these sensual styles. ~ Heather Phares
