KC and the Sunshine Band, led by Harry Wayne Casey, brought a bit of male bravado to the predominantly diva-led disco scene. KC and company incorporated a Caribbean feel to their music, with swelling--and staccato--horn parts and multilayered vocals. The repetition of the choruses of "Shake Your Booty" and "That's the Way (I Like It)" had every gold-chain wearing male on the dance floor singing along. While these hits, and "Get Down Tonight," are now disco cultural reference points, "Sound Your Funky Horn," a minor hit earlier in the band's career, has more of an island feel to it. The Best of KC and the Sunshine Band provides a fairly broad sampling of the Sunshine Band's music, including "Keep It Comin' Love," "I'm Your Boogie Man," and the tropical funk of "Boogie Shoes." --Steve Gdula

KC and The Sunshine Band are represented very well, here. All of the songs are terrific and Rhino does their usual fine job of compiling a hit package. I think KC and The Sunshine Band are underrated and they were an important part of the disco/funk evolution. They are without a doubt, one of the funkiest disco bands, ever. This is highly recommended to anyone who likes good disco, with a funky flavor and R & B. I love it!!!

KC & the Sunshine Band, for whatever reason, don't strike me as the kind of band with a massively devoted following. Most folks will probably just want to hear a good collection of their work. This is probably your best bet - containing all the hits (and several that weren't!) from the band. "Get Down Tonight", "That's the Way (I Like It)", "I'm Your Boogie Man", the ballad "Please Don't Go" and the late-period "Give It Up" get the most plays in my player, but the rest of the tracks probably won't disappoint. The inclusion of the early junku/disco tracks "Sound Your Funky Horn" and "Queen of Clubs" adds some needed variety. "Let's Go Rock and Roll" isn't exactly rock, and you'll start swearing you heard "Do You Wanna Go Party" just four or five songs ago - around this point, my interest starts to wane. The liner notes are notably lame for a Rhino Records release, but hey, just peruse 'em once and forget about 'em. Anyone interested in some KC should pick this up, listen to it once, then program around the tracks you're not crazy about. That's what CDs are all about, right?

Put the CD on, and you'll find your toe tapping in seconds. After listening to this CD for about two weeks, I have to say that Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch are geniuses. If you want songs about politics, religion, or so on, this isn't your music. If you want fun music, and well-written, well-arranged, and unbelievably catchy music, this is for you. Every one of these tracks is a real prize. I was just a little kid when this came out, and today find this music amazingly sophisticated. Lots of poliphony, a very astute understanding of the power of rhythm. But since we're led to believe by the musical snobs that music has to be about something "important" to be important, most people probably brushed off KC and the Sunshine Band long, long ago. Take a second listen today. As you find yourself shaking your bootie or putting on your boogie shoes, you'll be ready to give it up! This music is something. And you'll probably find your eyes watering up when you listen to "Please Don't Go." In all, this album shows that people knew what they were doing when they were buying these songs on 45s 25 years ago.

This collection has all the big hits, but I'm sure completists can name some missing songs. I don't think I can listen to 2 CD's worth of KC, as a lot of the stuff sounds similar. The band performed tight and the songs are full of catchy hooks. The reason for only 3 stars is that I have KC & Sunshine Band's Greatest Hits CD, put out by Hollywood Records 1-2 years after this Rhino Best Of CD, and I think it sounds a bit better. It's missing 3 hit songs that are found on this Rhino collection, so I was hoping to replace that CD, but I won't yet, due to the sound. It's not that noticeable, but the bass and space seem better on the Hollywood CD. Both CD's sound good, considering the quality of the original 1970's recordings, but neither CD really sounds great, considering all the possibilities for remastering these days. The day someone puts out a properly remastered single CD collection with all the hits (hopefully for less than $20), I'll dump these 2 CD's and get that one.

This excellent Rhino compilation does this group proud, long after the Disco Era crashed and burned. The classics are all here: "Get Down Tonight," "That's The Way I Like It," "Shake, Shake, Shake," "I'm Your Boogie Man," and more. It's mostly a non-stop dance party, but the #1 hit "Please Don't Go" is a nice respite from the frenzy. The final track, "All I Want," was recorded in the group's death throes and was a failed hit, although it has an interesting synthesized sound. KC's 1983 comeback hit "Give It Up" is also here, and it's welcomed. Great liner notes and photography--which is the case with nearly all Rhino releases--and a well-chosen look at a real bright spot from the disco years.

Full length versions of Get down tonight and That's the way I like it are not in, so I only gave 3 stars to this CD. The full length version of these two songs can be found in the CD "KC & the Sunshine Band and more" (Rhino) and "KC & the Sunshine Band Greatest Hits" (BR Music of Sweden). Furthermore, "I'm your boogie man" and "Keep it coming love" are linked together in "Part 3 and more" CD (Rhino), thus make this "Best of" CD less attractive. Other than the above, KCSB's music is immortal dance music, let's compare KCSB music to the recent dance music, 27 years from 1974, KCSB's music is still popular, I can say that no one will recall what kind of dance music is popular in 2002.
