While Kool & The Gang (not to mention James Brown) brought streamlined, commercial funk to the airwaves first, it was this integrated party band from Miami that first surpassed the Gang in danceability and sheer musical artistry. One can hear in Harry Wayne Casey's pungent vocals the authentic white soul of Alex Chilton's Box Tops (Chilton eventually covered KC's "Boogie Shoes") even as his and bassist Richard Finch's regional grooves borrowed the Stax trademark off-rhythms of Booker T & The MGs, another successful model of Southern musical integration. Whatever the case for the Sunshine Band's regional roots, nothing can beat the pure "party's-here" excitement of the bouncing clavinet figures leading into "Get Down Tonight" or the dervish-like minor-mode incantations of "That's the Way I Like It." An added bonus on this extended version of the group's debut album--besides '80s remixes of the two big hits--is the addition of "I'm a Pushover," a high-energy mover that rivals Bobby Byrd and JB himself for exhilarating dance floor power.
