About the album

The American soul-influenced funk group Cameo released their first album in 1977, but it took almost 10 years before they finally hit the world stage by releasing Word Up! The single by the same name became a massive worldwide hit. During the years they released several successful albums and songs, now finally brought together on the Cameo Collected 2LP.

Cameo started out with 14 members as the New York City Players in 1974. The first years they were known for their deep funk sound, but soon their songs were played all over the dancefloor. Their first hits "I Just Want To Be" and "Find My Way" also made it to the dance charts. More than 10 years after their formation they reached the top of their popularity by releasing singles such as “Candy”, "Back and Forth", and their biggest hit “Word Up!”. They were always ahead of their time and influenced the younger generation of Hip-Hop and R&B acts. Their presence continued to be felt in the 2000s.
