That's the way (I like it) - KC & the Sunshine Band

Those hit songs of the Seventies, they end up in your collection no matter how long you resist them. 'That's the way (I like it)' was one of the biggest anthems of the Seventies. The KC & the Sunshine Band classic was a number 1 hit in the USA, Canada and the Netherlands. In the UK it only reached number 4. Still, the song remains imprinted in the memories of millions of people because of its repeated airplay during the past four decades.

So how did this single finally get into my collection, 42 years after its release? In January, my wife visited a shop and, knowing that I still collect 7" singles, she came home with this single. I could never resist a freebie...

My collection: 7" single no. 5787
Found: Kringloop, Den Haag, January 6, 2017
Cost: free
Tracks: 'That's the way (I like it)' / 'Ain't nothin' wrong'

Keep it comin' love - KC and the Sunshine Band

'Keep it comin' love' is the quintessential disco song, recorded in 1977 by KC and the Sunshine Band. It appeared on their 1977 album 'Part 3'. The song, like its predecessor 'That's the way (I like it)', became widely successful due to its sexual double entendres.

The single peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and reached number 1 in Canada.It was also a top 10 hit in most of Europe, but amazingly only got to number 31 in the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 5426
Found: unknown
Tracks: 'Keep it comin' love' / 'Baby I love you'

Get down tonight - KC and the Sunshine Band

Band member Richard Finch has commented that 'Get down tonight' was inspired by the Gilbert O'Sullivan single 'Get down'. 'That record was really hot back then. And I was like, 'Okay, this guy has a great idea.' He's talking about 'get down'. But I didn't find out until later on he was talking about his dog.'

The single was released in the summer of 1975 and reached number 21 in the UK singles chart and number 5 in the Dutch Top 40.

My collection: 7" single no. 4622
Found: La La Land, March 5, 2010
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'Get down tonight' / 'You don't know'
