Spanning the band's early-'70s genesis as an unhinged funk congregation and their later resurgence with urbane R&B balladry and synth-inflected disco, The Very Best of Kool & the Gang may not be a unified collection, but it is the first to offer every hit that's expected -- as well as a few that aren't -- from the band's long career. The emphasis is definitely on their peak as a pop group, from 1979 to 1986, with pride of place going to the hits "Celebration," "Get Down on It," "Ladies Night," "Too Hot," "Misled," and "Joanna." Fans of the funk get only three tracks ("Funky Stuff," "Hollywood Swinging," and "Jungle Boogie," all from 1973's Wild and Peaceful), which won't cause anyone to sell their copies of The Best of Kool & the Gang 1969-1976, but does give pop fans a glimpse of their mid-'70s greatness. All in all, this lengthy collection doesn't transition well from hit to hit, but then again, chronological order would've forced legions of pop fans to forward through the funk material to get to their favorites.

Das goldene Funk-Zeitalter des James Brown

Zwischen 1967 und 1974 wandelte der Godfather seine Soul-Musik in Funk um. Mithilfe der zu diesem Zeitpunkt groovigsten Musiker überhaupt lieferte James Brown Songs, die zu den damaligen Brüchen innerhalb der amerikanischen Gesellschaft passten. Jeder wollte mit einsteigen in die Sex Machine!

Was geht ab, Marvin Gaye?

Es war einmal "What's Going On", eins der größten Alben der Soulmusik, das vor genau 50 Jahren veröffentlicht wurde, oder wie Marvin Gaye die Geschichte des Labels Motown und der populären Musik der 70er Jahre veränderte...

Philly Sound, Funk im Smoking

Weder Motown! Noch Stax! Sondern eine dritte, für sie recht typische Stimme sollte die Soul Musik aus Philadelphia noch hervorbringen. Das Duo Kenny Gamble und Leon Huff denkt sich diese Art Vorläufer der Disco Musik aus und bringt dann die in Seide gehüllten und im Champagner dahintreibenden Amerikaner der siebziger Jahre zum Tanzen.
