This 19 track collection brings together Horne's best tracks, displaying his rhythmic singing. Artists signed to the TK labels would often work on one another's album. For Jimmy 'Bo' Horne, this meant the backing on many of his songs was performed by Harry Casey and Rick Finch, better known as KC & The Sunshine Band. On this Greatest Hits collection 13 of the songs are backed by KC & The Sunshine Band, with the delightful opener 'Spank' being typical of the Sunshine band disco sound. 'Dance Across The Floor' was Horne's second single and biggest hit, encouraging all party-goers to shake their booty and solidifying his reputation as a disco king. Horne's first 12 inch single was 'Get Happy' with 'Gimme Some' on the b-side, both of which have been included here. Horne also recorded his own ballad version of '(They Long To Be ) Close To You', putting his own disco soul stamp on the classic Carpenters song - it is included here amongst the disco gems.
