Thump's Old School R&B is a lean but mean collection consisting of a dozen soul classics. All of these songs have been compiled time and time again, so it won't be useful for those with a sizeable soul collection. Those who don't have at least half of these songs, however, will find that this comes in handy. Sam & Dave's "Hold On! I'm Comin'," Junior Walker & the All-Stars' "Shotgun," Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman," Carla Thomas' "Gee Whiz (Look at His Eyes)," Brenton Wood's "Me and You," and Booker T. & the MG's' "Green Onions" are featured, along with six others.
