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 one reason why people illegally download music. The one and only real hit this band had was Word Up! and on a 2-CD collection, they only include the most annoying crappy version of Word Up! When Cd description says 12-inch version, they should mention it is a REMIX and not the original club version. I guess in the end, you get what you pay for.

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!

This great double album has all the classic Cameo tracks on it including:- She's Strange, Word Up, Candy and Back & Forth. It is a must for any collectors of Funk and Rap style music. There is some great bass on this album.

Word up! All the hits on one album. The tracks are still as fresh as they were in the 80s and with the bonus of a few remixes
