Cameo - She's Strange She's Strange
Soul Used - LP 814 984 Atlanta Artists
1984 Original. Appears Unplayed. “By 1984, African-American Popular Music Had Become Extremely High Tech. The Horn-Powered Funk Bands That Were Huge In The 1970s Were Out Of Style, And Young Audiences Were Demanding Hip-Hop, Electro-Funk, And Urban Contemporary — Not Horn Bands That Sounded Like The Ohio Players Or Tower Of Power Circa 1975. Horn Bands Were Still In Vogue Only In The Home Of The Go-Go Explosion: Washington, DC. But These Changes In The Marketplace Didn't Hurt Cameo; Both Commercially And Creatively, 1984's She's Strange Was A Winner. Thankfully, Cameo Leader Larry Blackmon Isn't Afraid To Try Different Things On This Excellent Album. The Mysterious Title Song (A Major Hit) And The Sociopolitical "Talking Out The Side Of Your Neck" Find Cameo Responding To Hip-Hop's Popularity By Including A Lot Of Rapping, While "Lé Ve Toi!" Is Very Rock-Minded — It's Still Funk, But Funk Laced With Lots Of Rock. "Tribute To Bob Marley" Is A Reggae Gem That Salutes The Jamaican Legend, And "Hangin' Downtown" Is A Smooth, Jazzy Number With A Definite Quiet Storm Appeal. When She's Strange Soared Up Billboard's R&B Albums Chart, One Had To Admire Cameo's Durability. Other Bands That Had Emerged In The 1970s Were Hurting, But With She's Strange, Cameo Had No Problem Maintaining Both Its Freshness And Its Popularity.” – Alex Henderson, All Music Guide... more details

Cameo - Style Style
Funk New - LP 811 072 Atlanta Artists
First Sealed Copy We Have Seen Of This Rare 1983 Original With Custom Song Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. R&B Was Experiencing A Year Of Transition In 1983. Soul Music Was Evolving Into Urban Contemporary, R&B Producers Were Becoming Increasingly High Tech, And Horn Funk Was Losing Ground To Synth-Funk And Electro-Funk. Also, The Hip-Hop Factor Could Not Be Overlooked -- Some Old-Timers Insisted That Hip-Hop Was A Passing Fad, But Younger R&B Producers Realized That Rap Was Becoming The Music Of Choice For Many Young African Americans And Paid Close Attention To Hip-Hop Production Techniques. Inevitably, All Of These Things Affected Cameo. This LP Finds Singer/Producer Larry Blackmon Leading A Downsized Cameo -- It Only Has Four Members On Style: Tomi Jenkins, Charles Singleton, Nathan Leftenant, And Blackmon Himself. Having Cut Way Back On The Horns On Style, Blackmon Makes Sure That Keyboards And Synthesizers Play A Major Role On Snappy Funk Items Like "Cameo's Dance," "Aphrodisiac," "Slow Movin'," And The Hit Title Song. Style Isn't Among Cameo's Essential Albums, But It's An Enjoyable Effort That Will Appeal To Die-Hard Fans.... more details
 
Cameo - Word Up Word Up
Funk Used - LP 830 265 Atlanta Artists
1986 Original Still In Shrink With Custom Hype Sticker. “Many Of The Funk Bands That Were Big In The 1970s Had A Hard Time Surviving In The 1980s, Especially If They Were Horn Bands. Having A Killer Horn Section Was Something That A Lot Of 1970s Funk Outfits Prided Themselves On, And It Was No Fun When, In The 1980s, They Were Told That Their Horns Sound Dated And That Urban Contemporary Audiences Only Wanted To Hear Synthesizers, Sequencers, And Drum Machines. But Cameo, Unlike Many Funk Bands That Emerged In The Late '70s, Really Thrived In The 1980s. Lead Singer/Producer Larry Blackmon Insisted On Changing With The Times, And He Did So By Making Cameo More High-Tech And Seeing To It That Albums Like 1985's Single Life And 1986's Word Up! Were Relevant To The Urban Contemporary And Hip-Hop Scenes. Nonetheless, Cameo Still Sounded Like Cameo; Word Up!, In Fact, Is One Of Its Best Albums. The Wildly Infectious Title Song Was A Major Hit, And Cameo Is Equally Captivating On Other Funk Treasures That Include "Fast, Fierce And Funny," "Back And Forth," And "Candy." To The Young Urban Contemporary And Hip-Hop Fans Who Bought Word Up! In 1986, Cameo's Funk Was Fresh And Cutting Edge; And At The Same Time, Slightly Older Fans That Cameo Had Won Over In The Late '70s Were Still Buying Its Records. Both Commercially And Creatively, Word Up! Was A Major Triumph For Cameo.” – Alex Henderson, AMG... more details
