KC and the Sunshine Band
Strictly speaking, Im not into Disco, and certainly I loathed it when it was a current phenomenon in the late 1970s I still fondly recall the day at the end of my Junior High years when a couple of jocks let fly in frisbee fashion the two vinyl LPs of Saturday Night Fever over the sports field.
However, now that the nightmare has passed, I can enjoy certain individual songs that were abhorrent by association if not actually guilty of being core Disco material, and the fact that I have this CD of K.C. and the Sunshine Bands songs shouldnt be construed as any kind of endorsement I have it so that I can revel in a handful of tracks and ignore the rest of it.
The A-list on this album is short, for me: Im Your Boogie Man is one of the most deliriously groovy booty-grinding tracks I can enjoy from those days, Get Down Tonight works excellently under certain circumstances (been there, done that, still would), and Thats the Way (etc.) is good for cheezoid indulgence and raunchy dancing at ReBar here in Seattle but not for actual listening. The rest? Skip, skip, skip, skip, skip.
