5.0 out of 5 stars Their Finest Album 29 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I originaly owned the vinyl LP back in 1980 and wore it out!!. I am finally reunited with these fantastic songs (and the wonderful memories). The quality of the tracks continues after the 3 single releases that open things up, including the brilliant dancers 'Love Festival and 'Night People', together with the sublime ballads 'Just Friends' and 'Love Affair'. It's classic Kool & the Gang all the way and an essential purchase for all KATG fans. Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Celebrate with This Album 25 Oct 2013
By J Mark
Format:Audio CD
My favourite album of theirs and certainly their best effort with Eumir Deodato.

The three singles are the first three tracks, the lead needs no introduction and was the best selling single in the US in 1980.

'Morning Star' is what by this stage of their careers was a rare instrumental and has a magic to it which makes it work.

'Side B' has two uptempo and two ballads, my favourite is 'Love Affair' with its wonderful keyboard riff backed up by tender and complementary strings which surge so gently

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Classic! 29 Jan 2008
By Olukayode Balogun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For a while, I believed that 1979's barnstorming Ladies Night was Kool & The Gang's debut. By bringing in producer Eumir Deodato and lead singer James "J.T." Taylor, they did indeed launch themselves into the pop chart stratosphere that year but they'd already had a long-running and very successful career as a jazz-funk band. This is best exemplified by their tune "Summer Madness" from their 1974 album Light of Worlds which was a firm favourite among fans at the time but was introduced to the wider world in 1991 when DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince sampled it for their monster hit "Summertime". Another good indicator of what the guys were capable of can be found on their contribution to Saturday Night Fever: The Original Movie Sound Track, called "Open Sesame". I was playing "Ladies Night" just the other day and was struck by how incredibly clean - even by today's standards - the production was. It only has six songs on it but every one is a winner.

This 1980 follow-up, if anything, was even more popular than its predecessor. The two party hits "Celebration" and "Love Festival" are as alive now (in connoisseur homes and on specialist dancefloors at least) as they were then but the album offers much more. The mid-tempo tune "Jones Vs. Jones", "Just Friends", the ballad "Love Affair" and the instrumental "Morning Star" were all firm favourites of mine right from the gate. My love and enthusiasm for these tunes has not diminished in the intervening 28 years; on the contrary, my appreciation for them has actually grown. Kool & The Gang were a real band, made up of people who were incredibly good musicians who also knew how to write good, funky songs. To crown it all, they had the warm, soulful lead vocals of J.T. and from what I recall, the ladies loved him. The guys just wanted to be him.

This successful phase of Kool & The Gang's career went on for a few years, with albums like Something Special, As One and Emergency. Good albums all, but this ultimate classic from a golden era should be in every 80s music lover's collection. The CD cost me a bit more than usual but it's worth every penny. What's more, I even managed to sell my old vinyl copy for a decent amount.

They don't make them like this anymore. Once again, I'm just glad I can say I was there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrate! - Kool & The Gang "took it to the top!" 20 Jun 2012
By Soulchild'sA'Comin' - Published on Amazon.com
Not only the title song was #1 on the American R&B charts and throughout the world, but is notable for having been played when the remaining American hostages returned home following the 1979-1981 Iran hostage crisis! Thats is how much impact the song had thoughout the world and the album (along with 1979's Ladies Night) placed Kool & The Gang on the same pedestal as Earth Wind & Fire, The Jacksons, and The Commodores as one of the top black bands in the country. Two more singles released that made great strides on the charts and dancefloors were "Jones Vs. Jones" and "Take It To The Top" and even introduced the band to a new medium for promoting albums which were called music videos - with the title track, "Jones Vs. Jones, and the exciting "Love Festival" with primitive, yet simple/clean cut production. JT Taylor was still new to Kool & The Gang at the time and his smooth vocals and crossover appeal took Kool & The Gang to the top while they still maintained their jazzy/funk feel (listen to the instrumental, "Morning Star" and the smooth, "Just Friends" and "Love Affair"). The album as a whole makes it one of the best albums released in 1980, period.

By Funky Freak - Published on Amazon.com

In 1980 by their last year hit Lp 'Ladies Night', they were on the spot at the billboard charts. The world was into the disco, it was the fact!Now it's time to do something like massive! Then their international anthem Celebration came that changed our life!What about the another tracks from the album.Groovy 'Take It To The Top', smooth 'Jones vs. Jones', funky'Night People','Love Festival',instrumental monster 'Morning Star'(God bless you Robert Mickens),and of course the emotional 'Love Affair' and 'Just Friends'.What can I say? Whoever you are and what music ever you like,this album brings you the massive energy as you listen it!God bless all Kool fans,all of the members the group and of course J.T. THE VOICE.You are the best!!!!!
