Cameo & guests and Cameo.
In 1974, Cameo started out with 10 members created by Larry Blackmon and called the New York City Players. They were Signed by Casablanca Records to their Chocolate City imprint in 1976, the group soon changed its name to Cameo due to possible confusion between them and the funk band Ohio Players.
Cameo started with a deep, funky sound, but it was obvious from the start their sights were set on the dance floor. Their first album was titled Cardiac Arrest (1977), the gold status achieving single titled Rigor Mortis was the start of Cameo's hit-studded career. The height of Cameo's career was Word Up! in 1986.
The last song in this mix is my favourite Cameo song from the 1983 "Style" album. Enjoy!
