Sure It's Disco, But...

"OK, so this is a disco album. OK, it's a collection of hits by a band who many of us would like to pretend never existed (well, from an era many of us would like to pretend...). All I ask is that you take these thoughts on board before deciding whether or not to buy this.KC and The Sunshine Band were one of the first fully-integrated bands in the history of music - this might not say much about their music but it says something. The other thing which you need to remember is that Disco music is never meant to be the sort of music where after a track finishes you go "wow, they really said some clever stuff there!" - the desired effect is more on the "let's play that track again, I wanna dance!" and taken on this premise, this album is successful.Most decidedly the most well known tracks on this album ("Shake Your Booty", "Get Down Tonight", "That's The Way" etc.) are lightweight lyrically and - to a greater or lesser extent - musically as well. However, they do provide exactly what you need at a party (my copy of this CD has had many workouts at parties already) - a good beat with clear funk in it to dance to and nothing too surprising in any department.The rest of this album works largely in the same way. While I was not around to see the 70s - having been born, for better or worse, about 5 years too late - I am reliably assured that those who have will instantly recognise many of the other songs here, usually with good memories. One song may be almost interchangable with another but that is the entire point: dance up a frenzy, who cares about the lyrics?There are some interesting points with the music on this album - the sped up guitar on "Get Down Tonight" for example - which display much more studio wizardry than I thought existed at the time.In the end, the only reason to buy this album can be summed up in the words of KC himself: "Do a little dance/make a little love/get down tonight". Shake your booty - you know you want to."

"KC was the truth back in the day. fake "Pinocchio turkeys" like Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke,Jamariquai,Maron 5,etc... can't bring it like Harry Wayne Casey. dude could Groove on the Keyboard(BamBoard)&could sing. he just had feel good cuts&had a band that was on point. KC&the Sunshine Band was to my ears, like multi colored Packages of Kool-Aid is to my eyes. "that's the way I like it" is still a Banging jam, as is "Get down tonight", Give it up,I'm your boogie Man are all tight. yeah you can call it simplicity,but they are Banging cuts period. Disco was always cool&it never went away, just got another name&it's been known by the Politcally Correct term Dance Music,but it never went away. these songs still are Bumping all of these years later."
