First two albums from celebrated funk pioneers re- issued on one CD, originally released on Chocolate City in 1977.
Featuring their excellent debut album ‘Cardiac Arrest’, which is highlighted by four singles, three of which hit the Billboard R&B chart.
Plus the follow up set ‘We All Know Who We Are’ which saw Cameo becoming increasingly more successful.
In the world of funk, Cameo stand as one of the precious jewels in the crown. A band that had the ability to take funk rhythms, make them danceable yet also retain a high degree of musicianship.
Their debut album set out their stall and the follow up, ‘We All Know Who We Are’ took them into the Top 60 on the mainstream chart and number 15 on the R&B countdown. The single ‘It’s Serious’ not only gave the band a Top 20 R&B hit but also got onto the all important dance chart, hitting number 21. With songs like ‘C On The Funk’, Cameo were really finding their range and establishing a unique niche.
Cameo would of course go on to bigger things as the 1980’s opened up, receiving no less than eight gold discs and one platinum disc in America. They belong to the elite pioneers of the funk-dance movement, sprinkling their songs with visual charisma to more than hold their own in a world where outrage and excess were rampant!
