K.C And The Sunshine'
Like Flies On SherbertImport
A step beyond the pop-perfection of Big Star lay Chiltons darker side. His 1979 solo effort was a both brilliant and flawed drug-fuelled examination of his own country roots in search of a new direction. Through songs by Ernest Tubb, Jimmy C. Newman, Roy Orbisonand K.C. and the Sunshine Band, as well as some originals, Chilton produced a looser album that allowed his new found creativity to flow through the many cracks, simultaneously dividing fans into two camps: the Big Star purists, and the ones who were able to see the genius on the flip side of its demise.Side A:

The Show Must Go On (Pure Pleasure)The best R&B songwriter and soul singer that most people have never heard of, Sam Dees has written songs for countless artists, including Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, George Benson, the Temptations, Teddy Pendergrass, Millie Jackson, Jackie Wilson, the Manhattans, Regina Belle, KC & the Sunshine Band, Willie Clayton, and many others. He's also a pretty fine singer, having recorded for the Chess, Atlantic, Polydor, and SSS labels, and he had a nice string of his own hits in the 1970s.
His 1975 Atlantic album The Show Must Go On has long been regarded by Southern soul aficionados as one of the best of the genre. Sounding a bit like a deeper-voiced Curtis Mayfield (in both style and theme), Dees sings with assurance, wisdom, passion, and a whole lot of soul here. Songs like Child of the Streets, Troubled Child, & What's It Gonna Be, share Mayfield's commitment to social commentary, and Dees knows his way around a love song, too. It's absolutely essential.

About Pure Pleasure
At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.
During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.
A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.
We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.
We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.
To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

Guilty Pleasure Records Don't Come Better Than This Freewheeling 1975 Set
Party On: Smash Hits Get Down Tonight, That's the Way (I Like It), Boogie Shoes Are All Here
Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI (America's Best Record Plant): Wait Until You Hear How Deep and Low the Grooves Go
It's okay to admit it. While few openly confess their love for KC and the Sunshine Band, who among us doesn't light up the instant that the super-catchy Get Down Tonight or giddy sing-a-long invitation That's the Way (I Like It) begins to play? Yeah, just by reading that last sentence, it's likely you're already humming the tune in your head, or feeling a twitch in your feet. The music is that addictive. And that universally recognized. It's time you finally enjoy it on a pressing that brings everything that's been buried in those deep grooves to the surface.
Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI (the best record plant in North America), Silver Label numbered limited edition LP presents the 1975 triple-platinum smash in the absolute best sound it's ever had. The ensemble's brassy horns, funky guitars, tropical percussion, and snappy vocals take their respective place amidst a gargantuan soundstage that, in your listening room, will double as a discotheque. Get your dancing shoes ready!
Coming from a musical strain then known as the Miami Sound, KC and the Sunshine Band perfected its mix of boisterous rhythms, disco-floor grooves, slick funk riffs, R&B hooks, carefree choruses, and dance commands on this self-titled release. The world immediately took notice. Focused on nothing but fun, letting go, and channeling feel-good emotions, the group revolutionized pop music by getting even the most hardened, resistant rock purists to embrace its appeal.
There isn't a better record with which to start or continue a party. Synonymous with celebrations, commemorations, and just blowing off steam, mega-hits That's the Way (I Like It) and Get Down Tonight transcend boundaries and generations. If youâre within earshot, you will get up and dance. In addition to being utterly irresistible songs, guilty pleasure or not, the fare on KC and the Sunshine Band qualifies as simply great pop, the arrangements, playing, and consistency as good as it gets. As for the grooves? Man, keep 'em flowing.
Rather than live in secrecy or settle for an inferior version, go ahead, indulge yourself, and grab this 70s classic on remastered, audiophile-grade vinyl. You'll be surprised at the amount of new information that's revealed, whether it's the depth of the low frequencies or timbrel properties of the horns.
