Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


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.
