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

Product Description

Product Description

Cameo were one of the great Funk bands to emerge in the mid 1970 s, who released 17 albums between 1977 and 2000. They were formed in New York City by Larry Blackmon, Tomi Jenkins and Nathan Leftenant in 1974 as 13 piece band New York Players. By the time of their first single Find My Way in 75 released on Chocolate City Records , they had changed to The Players and then again to Cameo to avoid a legal dispute with the Ohio Players.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Cameo's Best..... 20 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting to purchase this cd at the right price for years. Cameo was at the top of their game on this one. I remember traveling to London from Upper Heyford when this album first released. I returned to RAF Upper Heyford, went straight to the NCO club and had DJ Lacey play it. Needless to say, the club was jumpin' that night. I wore the grooves off of that album, so the cd version was much needed. Long live the C-Funk!!

5.0 out of 5 stars i finally got it 6 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have waited almost 35 yrs to finally get a copy of one of cameos finest albums. My parents never allowed me to buy one when it was first released, as they referred to it as "devil music"

3.0 out of 5 stars 'A Seven Out Of Ten' 10 May 2007
By Antony May TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Cameo never were a band renowned for the quality of their albums. Most contain a few killer tracks alongside some pretty ordinary material. 'Knights Of The Sound Table' is one of the bands better efforts however and will surely delight fans of the bands original sound. I say 'original sound' as KOTST was released way before the groups 'Word Up' period. Hot tracks here are the typical bass and horns driven staccatto 'Knights By Knights' funky single 'Freaky Dancin' and hottest of all the slap bass twanged 'I Like It'. Nona Hendryx pops up on the other single 'Don't Be So Cool' which is a tongue in cheek dancer that has a pop at 'diva ish' ladies, while 'The Sound Table' is a funky 'royal family' flavoured instrumental full of horns. The remaining tracks show the softer side of the group and are all reasonable if not particularly memorable. As solid a set as cameo seemed capable of this and if you missed out on 'I Like It' worth a purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real FUNK! 29 July 2004
By Sandro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is UNBELIEVABLE!!!

I love every single song! It's one of their best albums, together with 'Cameosis' and 'Alligator Woman'.

I think 'The Sound Table' is one of the best instrumental song I've ever heard...

If you love Funk and Cameo sound, you MUST have it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cameo Does It Again With A Great Funky Beat 4 July 1999
By KMFL90C@prodigy.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Cameo at its best. They go back to their Funk roots with great cuts "Freaky Dancin" and "I Like It". It remined me of their classic hit "Shake Your Pants". This is a must for any Cameo fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... and then there's my favourite Cameo album 2 Mar 2008
By Olukayode Balogun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Cameo may have had more pop success with subsequent albums like Word Up!, She's Strange and Single Life, but this 1981 classic is the one that has always stayed in my mind and in my heart (with Cameosis not far behind). It's just so much fun. With tunes like "Knights By Nights", "Freaky Dancin'", (another one I remember from "Soul Train" with it's unforgettable opening verse: "People who listen for the best sounds in the groove/ You know we got the music, to make your body move"), "Use It Or Lose It", the pop instrumental "The Sound Table", the crazy "Don't Be So Cool" and "I Like It" (with its fabulous rock guitar solo at the end), the band pack in truck load of funk with a lot of humour. Even the ballads "I Never Knew" and "I'll Always Stay" are gold standard.

I'd been aching to get my hands on this disc for years and paid well over the odds for it. But do I care?

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic... 5 Jan 2003
By "freddiej" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This and any pre-1984 Cameo material are among the best the group ever put out. Don't get me wrong - "She's Strange", "Word Up", et al were good stuff, too, but the first Cameo cuts were the better grooves. The Tom Tom 84 (EWF, Phil Collins) horn arrangements in "Knights by Nights" & "The Sound Table" from this CD make me nod my head in awe every time I hear them. This kind of music needs to make a comeback!!!
