AllMusic Review by

With party music, the general assumption is to load up with fun, high-energy jams and let them do their thing. Taking a different approach, however, is The Party Mix: Classic Soul, a three-disc set of slow jams that'll turn any shindig into a smoother, more soulful affair. Featuring a set list that ranges from classic soul staples like the Delfonics' "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" and Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" to blue-eyed soul jams like Hall & Oates' "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)," the collection makes good on its title, and even though it's not exactly a party compilation, it's the perfect accompaniment to a quiet evening with that special someone.
