Biography

"All you sucker DJs who think you're fly/There's got to be reason and we know the reason why/You try to put on airs and act real cool/But you've got to realize that you're acting like fools."

--Cameo, "Word Up"

Cameo tore the roof off pop funk--and the pop hip-hop scene that followed has paid its tributes, from Will Smith's Big Willie Style ... Read more in Amazon's Cameo Store

Some memorable recording artists just didn't make good albums. Larry Blackmon's Cameo was one such example--their domain was the 12- inch and the 45 single. As a result, The Best of Cameo is the place to start and finish with one of dance music's most distinctive, and unabashedly fun-loving, ensembles. Slick, funny, and endlessly funky, Cameo's blend of squeaking keyboards, compu-beats, cartoon vocals, and extended jams synthesized a new brand of disco for a post- disco age. This set is the band at its best, with triangle-headed bandleader Blackmon leading his troops through ballroom classics like "Single Life", New Wave-styled wonders such as "Rigor Mortis", and bouncy, Prince-seasoned singles like "Word Up". And it lays light on the ballads--never our heroes' strong point. Trust me--you'll want this as the soundtrack for your upcoming 1980s-revival party. --Don Harrison

Of course I got this for Word up, it was one of the few soul record that got through to me in the day (Can't stand that expression). In that time I was a Crass fan, so Cameo did well to get through. Great record many hidden gems to shake your ass to. Don't do this whilst shaving (you get the point).....

Originally I had some of the tracks on vinyl but have lost them over the years. This album is stunning and versions are quite lengthy. Buy it, you will not regret it!

If like me you like Cameo then this a must for your collection, it brought back memories of when I used to dance to some of these tracks at parties.

One of the grooviest albums I have ever heard! Cameo Im my opinion are a very underated band. This album show their true potential. A cd you must own.
