Old School Jams, Vol. 4


Other albums by

In the late '70s and early '80s, the oft-overlapping territories of rap, disco, funk, and R&B gave the world so many wonderful singles that, decades after the era came to pass, multi-volume series were still attempting to sew up all that was great about it. The fourth volume of Old School Jams doesn't exactly uncover a bounty of completely forgotten gems from the same period, but with its two discs it makes for a documentation that's almost as good as any other. One can't really go wrong with any selection of singles that touched the R&B charts during this time, and this is no exception. Positive Force's "We Got the Funk" (a Sugar Hill classic that should be at least half as popular as "Rapper's Delight"), Evelyn "Champagne" King's "Love Come Down," Whodini's "The Freaks Come Out at Night," D Train's "Keep On," the O'Jays' "For the Love of Money," Vaughan Mason's "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll," and Earth, Wind & Fire's "Let's Groove" make for just a portion of what's available here. ~ Andy Kellman
