All,

Ok - which are your fave "Kool & The Gang" numbers?

I just love this group soooooooo much - and I'm sure I've mentioned it before when I first joined this board. I mentioned that this was one group that could get me to dancing at home and once in awhile at a function.

There are many wonderful groups from the seventies that I loved - like Cameo - Commodores and the like - but IMO - Kool & them was the main one we could count on to make us want to "Jungle Boogie."

I just adored them.

My faves by them = "Ladies Night" - "She's Fresh (Exciting)" & "Hollywood Swinging." For shucks sake - I loved most of them. I absolutely adored "Summer Madness."

What's your faves?

I love Kool and the Gang too. However, I prefer their earlier work (pre-J.T.). The only albums I liked with J.T. were "Ladies Night" and "Something Special." My fave Kool and the Gang songs are: Funky Stuff, Love the Life You Live, Chocolate Buttermilk, Summer Madness, Hollywood Swinging, Take My Heart, Get Down on It, and Ladies Night.

Where you been? Summer Madness is very cool, but I'll always like Get Down On It best. Brings back some great memories.
