Biography

"All you sucker DJs who think you're fly/There's got to be reason and we know the reason why/You try to put on airs and act real cool/But you've got to realize that you're acting like fools."

--Cameo, "Word Up"

Cameo tore the roof off pop funk--and the pop hip-hop scene that followed has paid its tributes, from Will Smith's Big Willie Style ... Read more in Amazon's Cameo Store

Editorial Reviews

Cameo rocked their funk, shifting gears at will in the middle of a groove-and racing way ahead of the rest of the disco-era pack. Here are 17 of their hottest '70s and '80s hits: She's Strange; Word Up; Candy; Single Life; I Just Want to Be; Keep It Hot; Shake Your Pants; Attack Me with Your Love; Flirt , and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Heavy on funk numbers from that era! April 4, 2006
By Preston
Format:Audio CD
I think that this is one of the best Cameo compilations out there, even better than Anthology! They smartly chose the group's best songs, even mixing it up to keep the funk sound fluid all throughout as well as the few ballads. How Word Up weaves into Single Life is astounding! Rigor Mortis from 1977 blends well with the next 80s song. She's Strange was very chance taking as well as Attack Me with Your Love. I still love Candy. But Cameo can be smooth on ballads like Sparkle and Why Have I Lost You. They were known to recycle the last album's grooves onto the next album between 1982 and 1988. One correction, even though they had to get the CD out--Word Up is from 1986, not 1987 and Machismo is from 1988. Larry Blackmon is such a funk visionary, much like James Brown and George Clinton and he knew how he wanted his band to sound. They got better musically when the band went from 13 to 3 members. This CD fully covers the band's unbelievable run of hits. So get ready to turn this one up for an upcoming summer cookout!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Funk! April 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While you can't really reduce Cameo's accomplishments to a single disc, there's one great time to be had here! (If you like this sound, also try George Clinton's Parliament.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Cameo's Definitive Collection Treat April 10, 2009
By Marlon
Format:Audio CD
I have always liked Cameo and this CD does not disappoint me! I am impressed by the selections in this CD. Cameo has so many songs until it can be a real task selected popular known songs compared to ones inside of the many previous albums. I am impressed by this CD and will enjoy it always!

5.0 out of 5 stars this Set has the Funk March 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
oh back in the 80's I was grooving to alot of Cameo. Cameo was pretty much keeping the Funk Alive past 1985. Cameo always had the Jams."Attack me with your Love", I Just want to be,Word Up,Candy,etc.... you always knew a Cameo Groove&they were One of the Few Funk Acts that didn't get burried by Hip-Hop. in fact for a while Cameo was hanging with Hip-Hop&Embracing the Beats.I dig Cameo the most from 79-86.oh the days of buying there albums&also Larry Blackmon's side Protege acts on Atlanta Artist records were the days.

Great collection of all my Cameo favorites. Look no further if you want to revive the 80's spirit. Ahh, they don't make music like this anymore... shame!
