Description


Though they wouldn't hit it big until 1974's Wild and Peaceful, it's remarkable how much of the Kool and the Gang sound--that you will hear at weddings and sporting events until you are dust--is prevalent on their 1970 debut. The funky, loose-limbed rhythm section, the horns that play like a second lead vocalist, the songs that embed themselves in your cerebrum? All here, on this overdue lavish reissue done in time for the album's 50th anniversary.
