SHAKE) SHAKE YOUR BOOTY, I’M YOUR BOOGIE MAN and PLEASE DON’T GO. Their music has been played at every major
sporting event in the world and has also featured in over 200 movies. They were the first band since the Beatles in
1964 to score four #1 Pop singles in one 12-month period.
KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND was their second album and was a triple
platinum hit in the US upon its release.
It was released in 1975, the same year KC won the American Music Award
for Best R&B Artist.
GET DOWN TONIGHT was a smash hit upon it’s release, gaining the group
the #1 spots in both the US and Canadian Pop chart as well as the R&B
chart. The rare TOM MOULTON MIX of GET DOWN TONIGHT sees it’s debut CD
appearance in the UK on this reissue.
THAT’S THE WAY (I LIKE IT) built on this success, matching the previous
singles #1 positions but adding the Netherlands to the list. The single I GET
LIFTED, a George McCrae cover, has been sampled by the likes of N.W.A., Janet
Jackson, Notorious B.I.G., Dr. Dre, MC Shan, Afrika Bambaataa and Digital
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, K.C. & THE
SUNSHINE BAND is a must for all Soul, Funk and Disco fans out there!
"Driven along by Robert Johnson's funky drumming, a bunch of bobbling basslines, some joyously riffing horns and a succession of hooky chants dressed up as chorus, the idea was to put feet on dancefloors and a smile or two on some faces. Their best stuff - That's The Way I Like It, Get Down Tonight, I Get Lifted, and Boogie Shoes are all on this 1975 album". 3/5* (Chris Wells / Echoes - August 2012)
