I have an extensive CD collection. I am often dissapointed when I purchase & listen to CD's of albums I had when I was a teenager. Music is dated or the recorings are poor. Not w/ this one. I have enjoyed hearing this album again. The sound is very good & this is more of a funky soul album than a disco album. Yeah I have heard better covers, but if you had this album when you were younger & wonder if it is worth buying on CD. The answer is yes. Good from start to finnish.

Wild Cherry are a classic one-hit wonder. In the fall of 1976 they rode the burgeoning disco craze to the top of the charts with a catchy song based around a bar incident. Singer Rob Parrish and the band were playing in a bar and someone in the crowd shouted out to him to "play that funky music white boy". He turned that line into a song that will live on forever. While "Play That Funky Music" is a 70's classic, the rest of the album is pretty forgettable. "The Lady Wants Your Money", "Get It Up" & "What In The Funk Do You See" are serviceable, but pretty much everything else is not worth your time.

As most reviewers agree, the title track "Play that funky music white boy" is a thriller, and is worth the prize of the whole cd

(for my taste the awesome guitar solo could have been longer even)!

The rest pales in comparison but still contains four g o o d tracks; in decreasing order

The lady wants your money, I feel sanctified (a cover version of The Commodores or an even earlier band), What in the funk do you see, Get it up. The remaining four tracks are forgettable, probably produced in a hurry because the band was capable of more. I only know of one "white boy" band that gets as funky as

(the performing) WildCherry and that's Rare Earth. Listen to

Finger Lickin good on their album Midnite Lady, or Keepin me out of the storm on Back to Earth.

WILD CHERRY-WILD CHERRY: Proof positive that white boys actually COULD play funky music, albeit briefly, WILD CHERRY's autobiographical smash single anchored this delightful debut of rockin' RNB and hard edged funk. Sassy female backing choruses and a four piece horn section fanned the flames of the core quartet, which boasted two gritty guitar slingers, lecherous lead belter/songsmith ROB PARISSI, and BRYAN BASSETT, who turned up down the road in new versions of MOLLY HATCHET and FOGHAT. Stone soul covers of WILSON PICKETT, MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS, and THE COMMODORES might sound silly in other hands, but WILD CHERRY slashed through 'em all with crass class, even if most of their originals didn't quite measure up. If ever the term "one hit wonder" defined an act, WILD CHERRY was it...but PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC was the "mutha like no other" in that vapid DISCO-drenched wasteland known as 1976.

RATING: FOUR HONKY CATS

This has four really great songs. True funkers that really kick it. "play that funky music' is a number one monster hit of course, but there are other tracks on here that are really cool. Not one reaches the level of 'play that funky music' but they are good songs like 'the lady wants your money' and others. The four cover songs are decent and had nothing to do with this bands fall. It was just they couldn't get another powerful song out there like 'play that.." and so it went. Eight years later they were back in wichita ks playing a small bar. Such is the music business but this is good funk and funk and disco fans should grab it.

This was a great album, made all the better by listening to it on vinyl. Their revolutionary (at the time) sound was great. Much appreciated and you won't regret buying this album no matter what kind of music you listen to.

This cd is a bit schizophrenic: half the tracks sound fast,loud, and danceable; the other half are too thin and weedy-sounding to be truly funky. The short length of the album--less than 30 minutes--doesn't help either. Recommended only for Funk/Disco collectors.
