Customer Reviews

The Real Deal (5 stars)
The reviewer aaaaaaa doesn't know what he's talking about and the iTUNES review is not for this volume. If you're curious about the incarnation of Kool & The Gang that existed before their wimpy post 'Ladies Night' phase, this is the compilation you need (The Best of Kool & The Gang 1969-1976). It's a motherload of hard, raunchy, heavily sampled top-tier funk from arguably the greatest band in the genre.

when everything was Kool ...and the Gang (5 stars)
This collection was before J.T. Taylor's arrival, during the funky days and includes the live version of Summer Madness which is a longer and better version.

Their best early stuff (4 stars)
I wish it had their hit single, " Kool & the Gang".

Biography

Formed: 1964 in Jersey City, NJ
Genre: R&B/Soul
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Formed as a jazz ensemble in the mid-'60s, Kool & the Gang became one of the most inspired and influential funk units during the '70s, and one of the most popular R&B groups of the '80s after their breakout hit "Celebration" in 1979. Just as funky as James Brown or Parliament (and sampled almost as frequently), Kool & the Gang relied on their jazz backgrounds and long friendship to form a tightly knit group...
