Product Description

When Cameo lit up the UK charts in the middle of the 80s, they were quite simply a breath of fresh air. Few knew about their almost decade-long back-story; many glimpsed their highly professional, highly amusing antics on Top Of The Pops and were seduced by three big men singing of party times and mysterious women. Word Up! contains all of the group’s greatest hits, often in 12" versions. This comprehensive collection includes worldwide multi-million selling hit "Word Up!" and other chart smashes including "Candy" and "Back & Forth".

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For hardcore Cameo fans this collection is worth purchasing for the inclusion of the jazzy gem 'You're A Winner' alone. The killer track from their otherwise average 'Style' album , it has only previously been available as a rare and expensive Japanese import. Elsewhere the compilers make a good job of rounding up other overlooked tracks such as 'A Goodbye', 'Soul Army' and 'Time, Fire & Space'.
This CD would have warranted a 5 star rating but for the inclusion of inferior remixes of 'She's Strange' and 'Word Up'. The former sounds more like a demo and falls short of the majesty of the original. Some compensation is afforded by the inclusion of 'Room 123' the rap version of 'She's Strange' which retains the distinctive Simmons drum sound. It also features a nicely produced booklet and given the low retail price this is a great purchase for Funk fans.

Such an amazingly unique sound especially as it electronified into the 80s. Everyone in the world probably. Knows the uber-cool Word Up, but there are some really great lesser know tracks spanning a couple of decades.... And a real bargain at the price it is too

This is a good collection rather than great - some of the mixes are not as good as the originals and may not be to every ones taste - however when people discuss Cameo why is Hanging Downtown never ever mentioned - quite simply a masterpiece with a stunning vocal and my fav Cameo track throughout the years and not available on some compilations.

the cover shows the 10 hip members of cameo.
I don't remember that many, did they have 3 drummers?
I have got all of the hits on 12" singles.
most of them on an old cd compilation.
this has them all plus a lot of cool jams.
time to dig out the codpiece!
