AllMusic Review by

One thing you can almost always count on with Thump's Old School compilations is that each disc will smartly combine well-known favorites with a handful of less-obvious picks. Old School Funk Jams is no exception, crossing oft-compiled hit singles -- Rick James' "You and I," the Brothers Johnson's "Strawberry Letter 23," Ohio Players' "Fire" -- with the underplayed likes of Cameo's "Flirt," Yarbrough & Peoples' "I Wouldn't Lie," and Jesse Johnson's "Can You Help Me." This is yet another Thump release that should come in handy, whether you're in need of mixtape fodder or need to keep your party guests entertained.
