This soul/funk group of the late 70s early eighties were so classy and ahead of their time. This compilation pulls in all their gems Keep your body workin was a full on disco gem repetitve but effective with a sweet vocal urging you to Keep yer body working for 8 mins or so. Get Tough was the big dancefloor powerhouse of the early eighties clubs, over 8mins of a John Wayne chant "You better get tough kid" tight guitars and a driving bass. Taste tha music was another biggie it tryed to keep a similar formula to Get Tough this time with a french speaking line through the pulsating beat really full on and no one was doing anything like this at the time. Another fave is the classy Open your mind a sweet vocal mid tempo shuffler keeping the disco vibe alive Tonights the night was a real stormer a gruff male vocal interspursed with a girly vocal, so workable and infectious, Mid eighties brought a more mellower Kleeer flavour with Intimate connection a gem of a record for all you rare groove and mid tempo soul heads. I think the band recorded three or four albums in the eighties but the band in the late eighties early nineties never repeated their success of the early eighties, and when Woody Cunningham left the group to go solo, the band seemed to disappear, I really rate this album, every track is pure soul to the bone.......

'The Very Best Of Kleeer' is rather a frustrating release for fans of the band. Sure, most of the groups most commercially successful tracks are here but to include the mediocre 'She Said She Loves Me' (a minor U.S R&B hit from the groups weakest album 'Get Ready') when obvious classics like 'Close To You', 'You Did It Again', 'Never Cry Again' and 'It's Magic' are missing is disappointing. The fact that 'Take Your Heart Away' also appears here as a 'new edit' is also annoying as in reality it was probably only edited because it would not otherwise fit onto the CD at all. This said, I suppose I should be grateful that whoever compiled this CD was mindful to include the full length or 12" versions of most of the tracks rather than 7" edits. Bearing this in mind, I suppose it was inevitable therefore that some of the bands best work was going to miss out and if nothing at all from 'Get Ready' had been included some would have complained so I guess its a matter of personal opinion.

Whining about the track list aside, there are some awesome grooves on this album. From the late 70's disco influenced 'Keeep Your Body Workin' and 'Tonights The Night' to the powerhouse 80's funk of 'Get Tough' and 'Taste The Music' there is much to move your feet to here. The inclusion of classy cuts like 'Open Your Mind' and the slower, more synthetic, 'Intimate Connection' is great and the sound quality is also generally excellent (though the volume dips a tad after 'She Said She Loves Me' until the end - probably down to the more artificial instrumentation used from this point on in the groups career).

And so, to sum up...

If you like 70's/early 80's soul, funk, disco and missed out on Kleeer at the time buy this.

'The Very Best Of Kleeer' is not, however, the DEFINITIVE article.

This album is SUBLIME! Sooo many full length versions of this bands grooves! I lovvvvvvveeee "Open Your Mind", Trust me if you enjoy tight tap your foot or imitating bass guitar playing grooves get this album. Kleeer really had everything going for them and are easily an overlooked band.
