Release Date: 07/02/21
Robinsongs & Cherry Red are excited to announce the re-presse of Cameo's 'Ugly Ego' and 'Secret Omen' albums as a two on one.
'Ugly Ego' was originally released in 1978 and 'Secret Omen' in 1979. 'Secret Omen' featured the Top 3 R&B single 'I Just Want To Be' and the Top 10 R&B hit 'Sparkle'. The 'Ugly Ego' album featured the Funk Anthem 'Insane'.
'Secret Omen' was certified Gold in America and was the Bands first, but many Gold & Platinum albums followed. Cameo formed in 1974 under the name of New York City Players, but changed the name to Cameo to avoid a lawsuit from the Ohio Players. Originally there were thirteen members to the group, but over time the numbers dwindled down to the three main men Tomi Jenkins, Nathan Leftenant & creator and front man Larry Blackmon (and that cod piece)
Cameo's style was very much in the Funk mould, and the Group were as highly regarded as Parliament, Funkadelic, Bar-Kays, Ohio Players, Earth, Wind & Fire, Slave, The Isley Brothers, Rick James etc.
This re-issue features liner notes from Mojo's Lois Wilson.
