Overview

It's rare that a compilation series can merge the good aspects of previous volumes in one set. Slow Jams: The '70s, Vol. 3 deftly accomplishes that and more. With the self-imposed skimpy ten tracks, this does cover a lot of ground and captures the truest sense of the styles represented. This isn't hyperbole; this truly does hum like a great radio block or a thoughtful mix tape/CD. But then again, it is hard to go wrong with these solid songs. The best song from Teddy, Teddy Pendergrass' "Come Go With Me," and Sylvia's gasp-and-coo fest, "Pillow Talk," blend together in a great way. The Stylistics' "Betcha by Golly Wow" and the Manhattans' "Kiss and Say Goodbye" are great wherever you can find them. The middle and last part of this CD are where Slow Jams, Vol. 3 comes into its own. Powerhouse tracks like Peabo Bryson's "Feel the Fire," Tower of Power's "So Very Hard to Go," and Earth, Wind & Fire's "After the Love Is Gone" provide many sparks and emotion. The last two tracks, the Spinners' poignant duet with Dionne Warwick, "Just As Long As We Have Love," and the O'Jays' "Desire Me," end this on a suitably quiet and calm note. While it does seem silly to recommend a ten-track compilation in the CD age, this set is well-worth seeking out.
