A lukewarm Kool and the Gang with no J.T. Beware!

"I am a long-time Kool and The Gang fan, and I was excited that the magic of their live show might finally be captured on a CD. But what I heard instead was a very disappointing, J.T.-less, performance. Great song selection, but the Gang sounds rushed and kind of going-through-the-motions. This was an Australian performance evidently recorded before J.T. reconnected with the band, so the versions are capable vocally but his absence is definitely felt. Its obvious that the comapny clearly wanted to convey the idea that J.T. is the singer on the CD, because his picture is on the cover, and there is no mention in the notes of the line-up to suggest otherwise (actually, there ARE no notes, just ads for the company's other "product"). Could they be more exploitative, or what? So beware before you buy. And we Gang fans definitely deserved better!"
