"Play That Funky Music" is the highlight of this compilation from American '70s funk band Wild Cherry.
Japanese version, with 6 bonus tracks.
This 2002 compilation shuffles most of Wild Cherry's charting hits and combines them with a larger number of album cuts. "Play That Funky Music," along with the other singles that almost no one remembers -- "Hot to Trot," "Hold On," "I Love My Music" -- are included. "Baby Don't You Know," the mildly successful "Play That Funky Music" sound-alike that became the group's second hit, is not. Everything the group did was unfairly compared to "Play That Funky Music," so the remainder of the Wild Cherry catalog is deserving of more attention; still, this disc will be more than enough for most casual fans of disco and funk. ~ Andy Kellman
