OK, who's gonna step up and admit that they listen to some stuff by this famous disco group? I do. Not a lot, but some. I gotta say, that this band can lay down some serious grooves. Check it out:

Look past all the glitter and choreography and you got yourself a really excellent groove and a neat, scratching guitar going to work :)

BOOGIE SHOES is my favorite. I agree. They had something more than the typical disco band. Infectious grooves.

Yeah, Bill! Right ON!
I hated all of this stuff back in the day, but hearing it now makes me realise that KC had some smokin' musicians and writing. Lots of disco is finding my attention these days.

Kinda the same with me. I basically blew them off back in the day but revisiting their music makes me happy to find, as Fred correctly pointed out, some infectious grooves.

Just great. Had "I'm Not In Love" in my head all day yesterday and now its "Boogie Shoes". Maybe some demented theme songs will remove it.
"Green Acres is the place to be...
"Farm animals are lookin good to me....

I got the album with "That's The Way" on it at about the same time I got my first Kiss album. I like the hits, and Boogie Man is pretty damn cool. At the time, disco wasn't on the "not cool" list yet. In retrospect, KC was just as cool as most of the BS that Kiss ended up putting out.

I have the Greatest Hits CD which I'll listen to from time to time...puts me in a good mood...

Good call. It's definitely good mood music.

What's that song..."Give It Up"? If so, that song is great.

Alex Chilton does the best druggy version of 'Boogie Shoes' you will ever hear on his 'Like Flies on Sherbert' album.
