As One (Expanded Edition) - Kool & The Gang

As One (Expanded Edition)

KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as ‘Summer Madness,’ ‘Get Down On It,’ ‘Celebration’ and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick - Pulp Fiction; ‘Jungle Boogie.’


1982 would see Kool & The Gang release AS ONE, their 16th studio album. AS ONE went on to become a U.S. Certified Gold album in November of 1982 helped by its top 30 position on the U.S. charts, and top 50 in the U.K. (spending 10 weeks in the U.K. album chart), while also climbing all the way to #5 on the U.S. R&B album chart. The legendary Grammy Award winning pianist, Eumir Deodato would once again take hold of production duties, assisted by Kool & The Gang. 

The first single release was ‘Big Fun,’ laden with a killer funky bass line and an equally impressive brass section; the single returned the group to the R&B top ten and UK top twenty. ‘Let’s Go Dancing (Ooh La La La)’ made the most noise on the chart front, earning an impressive top 30 position on the U.S. Pop charts like its predecessor and top 10 spots in both the U.S. R&B and U.K. charts. ‘Hi De Hi, Hi De Ho’ was also received well in the U.K. climbing to #29 on the U.K. charts while the third U.S. single, up-tempo, funky jam ‘Street Kids,’ became a further R&B chart hit.

Other notable tracks include the smooth and soulful album closer ‘Think It Over’ and the similarly paced title track.

BBR is proud to present AS ONE in fully expanded and newly re-mastered glory, complete with extensive liner notes including new interviews, and added bonus material.

Open Sesame- Expanded Edition

Kool And The Gang needs no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 80s and have sold over 70 million albums world wide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as Summer Madness, Get Down On It, Celebration and who could forget that slammin funk monster that featured so heavily in Quentin Tarantino's cult flick - Pulp Ficton; Jungle Boogie. Kool & The Gang was started by two brothers, Robert Kool Bell and Ronald Bell along with five friends in 1964. After some time playing the growing Jersey City Jazz coffeehouse scene and spots like Café Wha? in New York City, performing alongside other yet-to-be famous talents of the time, Kool & The Gang were signed to Redd Coach Records in 1968 and a year later were recording for the small subsidiary label, De-Lite Records. The 1970s was a busy and fruitful decade for the group, with Kool & The Gang, releasing twelve studio albums, two live albums and appearing on numerous occasions across the charts. 1976 saw Ricky Westfield leave the group to form his own band, North East South West, and would also mark the end of collaborations between the original seven members of KOOL & THE GANG. Later that year the group released Open Sesame which features the up-tempo single Superband which gained a top 20 R&B chart spot and the title track which reached #6 R&B and #55 on the US pop charts and soared to #13 on the Dance chart and was later featured in the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever.

Press:-

"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)
