Synopsis

Amazon.com
Any record that leads off with Dick Vitale's ubiquitous jabberings is asking for trouble, and this third volume in the Jock Jams series is musically ill-equipped to pull out of the ensuing tailspin. The collection of inoffensive rap songs and R&B-tinged dance numbers does have a few highlights. KC and the Sunshine Band's "That's the Way I Like It," regardless of what sort of material it shares company with here, is a classic, and Blackstreet kick out a decent rhyme with Dr. Dre on "No Diggity." On the whole, it might even make a passable soundtrack for an aerobics class. Besides that, however, you'll have to swim through a lot of musical filler and testosterone-driven flotsam to find anything that rises above an overwhelming and acute mediocrity. --Matthew Cooke

Wham! Bam! Slam! It's Awesome, Baby!

"Jock Jams Volume 3 is one good album. It will definately get you pumped up.Every song on this album gets my blood pumping. Hearing Dick Vitale first just set me up for the rest of this fast cd. "C'mon & Ride It," "I Like It Like That," and "That's the Way I Like It" are probably the three most well-known singles, but other great songs like "Da' Dip" and the thunderous "Tribal Dance" make this album super. This album has something for everybody on it. Ending with "The Chicken Dance" was classic. This album is a great buy with 22 tracks on it, and it more than satisfies you with fast pumping entertainment. What are you waiting for? "Don't Stop, Get It, Get It!""
Non-Stop Fun!

"Jock Jams Volume 3 is quite possibly the best in the series. It stars off with Dick Vitale's It's Awesome Baby speech, which kicks right into Tribal Dance by 2Unlimited (Remember them?) which is full of energy. Right after that is Republica's super hit Ready To Go and Tito Nieves's I Like It Like That, which is definately a classic. Quad City DJs have made it on to most dance compilations, and this one is no exception. C'Mon Ride The Train is one of the best songs on the album. Freak Nasty provides a pretty good track that is a combination of dance and rap. Crush provides yet another dance classic with Jellyhead, and then Blackstreet gives us their hit No Diggity with Dr. Dre. The next few tracks however are nothing exceptional until you hit Livin' Joys song Don't Stop Moving, which is as close to perfect as you can get. Then Rednex performs a strange combination of country and dance on Cotton Eye Joe, followed by a great Jock Jam megamix, which features many other popular songs at that time which didn't make the compilation. The album ends with Ray Castoldi's chicken dance. Overall, this is a very fun album that works well for parties."
