Cameosis

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Craig Lytle
The big single on Cameosis, the stimulating "Shake Your Pants," provokes body moves from the animated group vocals to the rump-shakin' groove. The vivacious number "We're Going out Tonight" is a man's salute to his lady. Larry Blackmon and Tomi Jenkins sing in unison throughout the body of the song, with first tenor Wayne Cooper soaring in the vamp.

From Lockett's execution to the song's overall arrangement, this is a must-listen.
