The Smooth Grooves series is an exceptional collection of neglected soul and urban R&B singles. Concentrating on the late '70s and early '80s, the selections of the series are lush and seductive, drawing from Philly soul and disco in equal measures. Smooth Grooves, Vol. 5 features selections by the Spinners, Teddy Pendergrass, Grover Washington, Jr., the Manhattans, and Earth, Wind & Fire. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
