• If The Pointer Sisters shaped themselves to be a successful all-female black crossover pop band of the 80s then Kool & the Gang certainly proved to be the most enduring all-male counterpart to this. Originally formed as a jazz band in the early 60s (then adopting the Jazziacs moniker), they would reinvent themselves via funk in the 70s and once again in the 80s with relentlessly feel-good pop-soul.

• Continuing on from a decade-long reign on the charts, Kool & the Gang released their sixteenth studio LP, 1984’s EMERGENCY (R&B #3/Pop #13/UK #47), and continued their trend of unashamedly feel-good soulful pop music, resulting in a double-platinum album which would turn out to be the biggest international seller of their career.

• EMERGENCY gave the band some of their biggest hit with ‘Misled’ (R&B #3/Pop #10/UK #28), ‘Fresh’ (R&B #1/Pop #9/UK #11), the gold certified ballad ‘Cherish’ (R&B #1/Pop #2/UK #4) and ‘Emergency’ (R&B #7/Pop #18/UK #50). On this new 2CD deluxe edition, all of the alternative 7” and 12” dance remixes are included.

• BBR are thrilled to present this 2CD deluxe edition of EMERGENCY in a newly remastered and repackaged digipak edition with added bonus content and brand new interviews.
