From the early 1970’s thru the mid 1980’s. Here’s a little about the group Kool & the Gang…Kool & the Gang first hit the US Billboard R&B chart with the release of their debut eponymous album. Several top 10 hits, with 1973’s Wild and Peaceful breaking into the mainstream with “Funky Stuff”, “Jungle Boogie” and “Hollywood Swinging”. “Jungle Boogie” and “Hollywood Swinging” both sold over one million copies, and each was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA.

Kool & the Gang’s 1974 album Light of Worlds and 1975 album Spirit of the Boogie as the greatest achievements of the band, with the 1975 single “Summer Madness” gaining much attention.  The late 1970s saw a lull in Kool & the Gang’s output except for the album Open Sesame, which yielded the title track “Open Sesame”, achieving some success as part of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack and winning a Grammy Award. Then the group made a huge comeback, starting with 1979’s Ladies’ Night. Their number one hit in 1980s “Celebration” was from Celebrate!, co-produced by Eumir Deodato. More international hits followed in the early 1980s, including “Big Fun”, “Get Down on It”, and “Joanna”. Their 1984 album Emergency yielded four top-20 pop hits, including “Fresh” and “Cherish”. Kool & the Gangs crossover and national appeal was highlighted in 2014 when they were chosen to open for Van Halens US tour. Then later that year embarked on a European tour of their own.
