It's A Winner
on 5 May 2013
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.
