This collection of 12" tracks features a nice mix of the group's older, funkier stuff with its soul-pop hits of the '80s, including "Open Sesame," "Love and Understanding," "Get Down on It," "Tonight," and "Ladies Night." Many Gang fans will savor the tracks; casual fans may find this to be overkill. Those who have heard "Celebration" one time too many may still appreciate "Celebremos," Kool & the Gang's Spanish version of their greatest hit.
