Released by the EMI-distributed Stateside in the U.K., The Best of the T.K. Years, 1975-1985 contains the same exact content as Westside's Gimme Some!, released seven years prior. Unless you're a serious crate-digger -- or a devout fan of KC & the Sunshine Band, whose Howard Casey and Rick Finch wrote most of the material heard here -- the disc contains all the Jimmy "Bo" Horne from this period that you'll ever need, beginning with the 1980 remix of "Spank" (the basis of Exodus' 1982 club classic "Together Forever," featuring some of the baddest electric piano runs you'll ever hear) and winding through "Dance Across the Floor" (his biggest hit), "You Get Me Hot," "Get Happy," and the remainder of his charting singles. With insightful liner notes and attractive packaging, the disc is far preferable over the Westside release. ~ Andy Kellman
