Love Jones: Best of Funk Essentials, Vol. 2 contains 12 quiet storm hits from the Mercury/Polygram vaults, including Cameo's "Sparkle," Love Unlimited Orchestra's "Midnight and You," the Ohio Players' "I Want to Be Free," Con Funk Shun's "Make It Last," the Gap Band's "You Can Count On Me" and Jerry Butler & Brenda Lee Eager's "Ain't Understanding Mellow." It may not be comprehensive, but it's a solid, entertaining sampler of late-'70s romantic R&B.
