Thump's many variations on their Old School series haven't been immune to overlap, and the Love Songs volumes have hardly been an exception. Even so, there's enough variation throughout to keep them from being nothing more than recycled matter -- and quite a lot of ground is covered, with three decades of R&B taken into consideration. Thump especially remains a great resource for those who don't want to replace all of their single-artist LPs. The sixth volume of Old School Love Songs features Earth, Wind & Fire's "That's the Way of the World," the Main Ingredient's "Just Don't Want to Be Lonely," Enchantment's "It's You That I Need," the Intruders' "Together," Jimmy Ruffin's "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted," and Atlantic Starr's "Secret Lovers."
