CD Reviews

Not the greatest greatest hits
Melanie Shrawder | Pittsburgh, PA USA | 09/29/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation is just fine if you want to add "Jungle Boogie" to your collection once someone has stolen your Pulp Fiction soundtrack, but a much more complete compilation has recently been released. It's worth a few extra dollars to pick up The Very Best of Kool and the Gang."
No, too much missing to call their best
Eric V. Moye | New York, by way of Dallas | 04/09/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A fine album, as far as it goes. But it is missing too much oftheir better, and earlier work. No "Who's Gonna Take TheWeight", "Funky Stuff", "Let The Music Take Your Mind". Sure, the work here is fine, but to call this collection their "BEST", would be a gross understatement. Instead, go for "The Best of Kool & The Gang 1969-1976. More and better cuts."
Awesome funky stuff
Vincent M. Mastronardi | Michigan | 07/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is un-funking believable. This Greatest Hitsencompasses not only some of the best known tracks by funkmasters Kooland The Gang, but some of the most essential songs of the seventies and eighties in general. The group leaves no level of good R&B behind. The smash "Jungle Boogie" contains awesome horn arrangements. Pop flavoring with an R&B feel makes "Celebration" one of the biggest party jams of all time. The light love songs like "Cherish" and "Joanna" are very effective and romantic. A totally new side to the funksters but that hot R&B sound continues on the rest of the tracks like "Get Down On It" and the discoy "Ladies Night". Kool and The Gang is one of the all time best funk bands around on this CD shows the diversity of the group to change to funk to pop light and modern R&B ("Fresh"). The group is very inspirational to many artists in modern urban music with a sounds that is infectious and cleaver. The CD is really "Big Fun". END"
