Overview

The ninth volume of the Thump label's Old School series continues a gradual increase of picks from the latter half of the late '80s through the '90s. The inclusion of Blackstreet's "No Diggity," released in 1996, goes to show how the definition of old school changes with each generation, yet a few songs here -- such as Yarbrough & Peoples' "Don't Stop the Music" (1980) and Dazz Band's "Let It Whip" (1982) -- appeared on earlier Old School volumes. Apart from Commodores' "Too Hot ta Trot" (1977) and Rufus & Chaka Khan's "Do You Love What You Feel" (1979), everything here is from the '80s or '90s, with the songwriting/production team of L.A. Reid and Babyface getting a spotlight through the back-to-back sequence of Bobby Brown's "Don't Be Cruel" and Pebbles' "Girlfriend." Thump once again sticks to hits. Everything on the disc was a smash and has continued to be aired on radio stations 20-35 years after release.
