Kay-Gees were to Kool & The Gang what The JB’s were to James Brown – namely, a spin-off group that was able to function as an independent entity and release albums in their own right. The group’s name was derived from the initial letters of the band whose proteges they were, i.e. Kool & The Gang.
Kevin Bell of the Kay-Gees is Robert (Kool) Bell’s younger brother, and later on in his career joined Kool & The Gang.
Robinsongs brings you the first three Kay-Gees albums “Keep On Bumpin’ & Masterplan”, “Find A Friend” & “Kilowatt” on a double CD package, plus four bonus tracks.
The package includes all their R&B singles ‘You’ve Got To Keep On Bumpin’’, ‘Master Plan’, ‘Get Down’, ‘Waiting At The Bus Stop’, ‘Cheek To Cheek’ and as a bonus track – ‘Hustle Wit Every Muscle’, which was the theme tune to the U.S. show “Party”.
Also included on this package are two extended versions of the track ‘Kilowatt’ and the 12” mix of ‘Cheek To Cheek’.
The Kay-Gees had many of their tracks sampled over the years, including Kanye West for his album “Late Registration” and Dr. Dre who featured ‘Who’s The Man (With The Masterplan)’ on his classic “The Chronic” album.
If you love Kool & The Gang this is the package for you.
This package includes sleeve notes by MOJO & Record Collector
journalist Charles Waring.
