for our fourth installment, we?ve chosen a band best known for their tame early 80s repertoire. mention the song ?celebration? and your geriatric grandmother would know you were referring to kool & the gang?s biggest hit. but even though we at le smoke disque have nothing but love for the band?s late 70s and early 80s producer, brazilian jazz legend eumir deodato, we want to show you the influence robert ?kool? bell and his compatriots had on the world when they burst on the scene in 1969 with their self titled debut.
