It's interesting to know that both the Dutch and Belgian pressings of this album (Kool And The Gang* - Kool And The Gang and Kool And The Gang* - Kool And The Gang) carry three tracks more than their US counterpart (Kool And The Gang* - Kool And The Gang) or any other pressing for that matter. The only reason I can think of that the Dutch and Belgian pressings have those extra tracks on the album, is that the singles Kool And The Gang* - Funky Man (which features "Funky Man" and "1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8") and Kool And The Gang* - Kool And The Gang (which also features Funky Man), were released in both Belgium and The Netherlands, which means they had the master tapes of those titles and since they were already in their possession anyway and given the short duration of the regular album tracks, they must have decided to put all those songs as additional tracks on the final Dutch/Belgian album pressings. The French pressing of the single Kool & The Gang - Funky Man / Let The Music Take Your Mind is the only Northern European single that features "Let The Music Take Your Mind", which must have been in the possession of the record company as well, hence the fact that that title is also on the Dutch/Belgian pressing of the first Kool and the Gang album. "Funky Man" and "1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8" were never part of the original first album, are basically only available on the original 45s, are also not on the later CD-reissues (apart from "Let The Music Take Your Mind", which appeared as a bonus cut on the CD-reissues), which makes these Belgian/Dutch pressings of the first album all the more desirable, since they contain the tracks that you'd otherwise only find on the 45s, which are still pretty expensive.

One of my favorite albums. Absolutely pleasing jazz-soul, and funk are eminating off this album. It has just the right amount of punchiness and melody that hits the spot. It’s a 5 out of 5 stars in my personal opinion. I highly reccomend that you listen to it, regardless of your taste.

Hello, I have a vinyl with the same catalog number ISP 34101, but not a promo version. Still released by IL, in Italy. Anyone has got any clue about this release? When it has been published and the market value?
Thanks
Paolo

Definitely in my top five funk records. There isn't a weak track on this. Put this lp on and let it play through. The drums.... oh my god. I especially enjoy the mellower tracks on this, goes great with a cold beer on a summer day.

'Give It Up'. Simply one of the most amazing Breakbeats all time. It was George "Funky" Brown from Jersey City the responsible for these legendary Drum Breaks on Kool And The Gang's 'Give It Up' (1970), largely sampled over the decades by countless artists from different genres. The best period of the super Funk band had also Gene Redd as producer & arranger (father of singers Sharon Redd & Penny Ford). Many of those that didn't have the privilege of hearing this album at the time it came out certainly heard those beats on ace tunes such as 'Hear The Drummer (Get Wicked) and 'Don't Sweat The Technique'.
