5.0 out of 5 stars Gold Sugar June 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Quite honestly I can say that this is my favorite CD in my extensive collection. Sonny Cheba and Geechi Suede have the most ridiculous flows in the hip hop world today and their jive vocabulary is so dense it takes years to decipher, and yes it does make sense once you learn it. Tracks like Luchini, Coolie High, Sparkle and Black Connection are so [...] laid back, they make you want to crack open some bubbly and take a limo ride. Production is tight, including Trugouy the Dove from De La doing a bumpin banger on B-Side to Hollywood. Meanwhile straight diamond crook songs like Killin em Softly and Krystal Karrington stay dark yet smooth. Cheeba's got the most distinctive voice and Suede flows are insane. Often overlooked, this old school album goes back like chiropractors in a time machine, and keeps pleasant vibes trickling through your earhole.

Cooly Hi still gots me wild, fo' shee shee, player! Still sippin' on Amaret'ah! Man, these cats had flow! And there intricate and esoteric use of exclusive '70's old skool, Uptown slang was unparalell! Let's not even talk about the production, flawless! this is one major thing that Hip-Hop is lacking big time, ORIGINALITY! If you ain't up on this CD yet, do so, suga' booga'z! A must have for all Hip-Hop tenderonies & mackaronies!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most creative LP's to ever hit stores January 7, 2006
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
This is some perfect any mood hip Hop. It canb appeal to the Jazz heads for it's smoothness and also has some good raw hip hop appeal to it. This is just a perfect blend music that sounds like it could have been recorded at any time by really any performer in some genre. It has many good songs like Rockin It-Krystal Harrington-Sparkling and of course This is It. I saw it in stores and picked up. It's a shame this was really there only release because this is pretty flawless

4.0 out of 5 stars Uptown of a beautiful Saturday Night (4.5 Stars) May 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've never heard of Camp Lo until I started visiting this site and how everyone kept saying that this was a good Cd, so I had to check it out myself. Camp Lo (Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede) looks like they've been holding down the party scene of hip hop comming from The Bronx. One song that I like is "Luchini aka This Is It" (I never understood the aka's in the titles) but it sounds like a song from the 70's. "Krystal Karrington" is the opening track that will set the tone of the CD. "B-Side To Hollywood" could be a dance joint to fit this duo's feel of trying to create a Hollywood type scene along with their style. "Black Connection" is another standout track that I like. "Rocking It aka Spanish Harlem" has a little salsa groove to the type of song. "Black Nostaljack" is a good song also. "Coolie High" appeared on the Coolie High soundtrack back in '96, one I also like.

One track I didn't like that much was "Killing Them Softly", somewhat of a track that doesn't fit their style. Other than that I think this CD was one of the best jams that came out back in 1997. It gives you a feel for one of those Grown And Sexy Club settings. Cheeba and Suede come correct on the microphone in this CD. Highly Recommended if you want to hear some upscale party tracks with tight lyrics.

Standouts: Luchini, Black Connection, Rockin' It, Black Nostaljack, Coolie High

5.0 out of 5 stars the freshest group to emerge in a year full of crap July 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After listening to countless hip-hop groups spew the same macho crap, remake classic songs that should be left alone or use the same '80's samples over and over again, I cannot tell you what a refreshing experience it was to hear Camp Lo for the first time. Every track on this album is solid and is guaranteed to make you bob your head. More Camp Lo, less Will Smith, less Master P.

4.0 out of 5 stars A throwback...artistic, nostalgic hip hop (4.5/5) December 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Camp Lo's 1997 debut "Uptown Saturday Night" is a very underappreciated, unique hip hop album. The duo of Sonny Cheeba and Geechie Suede create a type of hip hop that is really unique and original. Their bouncy, happy rhyming style is just really fun, they both have cool flows and interesting voices, they really keep you listening. Producer Ski, one of the more underrated east coast producers of the 90s, creates dense musical soundscapes that are often just beautiful. If I were to pick two words to describe the sound of "Uptown Saturday Night," they would be rich and majestic. The sound is really nostalgic of multiple eras past, sampling classic jazz, soul, funk, and even early hip hop standards. This is one of the last great party albums, balancing the joyful banger singles with the toned, thoughtful slow tracks. I highly recommend "Uptown Saturday Night," this album is really special in a lot of ways and has been slept-on for too long.

The album begins with "Krystal Karrington," an upbeat, funky start where Cheeba and Suede introduce themselves as lyricists with their silky, smooth stylings. One of the best hip hop singles of all time follows, "Luchini aka This Is It." From the singalong chorus to the perfect horn-laden beat to the joyfully happy lyrics, this song is perfect, and there's not much more I can say, it makes the album worth the purchase alone. "Park Joint" uses a really catchy funky sample, I remember Pete Rock using this sample in the past, it's an upbeat track and a party-starter. "B-Side to Hollywood" has jazzy muted horns and the duo steals the show on the mic, the hook is great too. "Killin' `Em Softly" has a slower beat but some of the album's hardest verses. I love "Sparkle," a jazzy and beautiful nighttime song with another nice chorus.
