AllMusic Review by

Released by Spectrum Music in the U.K., Get Down on It: The Collection is a haphazard Kool & the Gang anthology. There are some questionable selections, and the sequencing is similarly random. That said, it is a budget release that should be found for significantly less than the price of a standard single disc, and many of the group's biggest hits are included. There are none of the "live" substitutions that plague so many like-priced compilations, either. Among the included must-haves are "Jungle Boogie," "Take My Heart (You Can Have It)," "Joanna," and "Celebration." Nobody who owns one Kool & the Gang title should be without "Summer Madness," "Funky Stuff," or "Hollywood Swinging." This disc has none of the three.
