This collection of 12" tracks features remixes of Cameo funk classics, including "Candy," "Shake Your Pants," "Rigor Mortis," "Attack Me with Your Love," and, of course, "Word Up." Most of the remixes are simply extended groove sessions slipped into the originals, but many Cameo fans will savor the tracks; casual fans may find this to be overkill. The compilation also includes two versions of "She's Strange" and a previously unreleased mix of "Back and Forth."
