KC and the Sunshine Band is the second studio album by KC and the Sunshine Band. The record was produced by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch and was released in July 1975 on the TK label.

This self-titled effort wasn’t the Florida band’s first album (they’d recorded an underrated album in 1973 titled Do It Good), but it was the first K.C. collection to soar to the top of the charts. Fueled by such addictive funk hits as “That’s the Way (I Like It)” and “Get Down Tonight,” the album established K.C. as one of the top stars of the disco era. But while K.C. was labeled a disco artist, the truth is that many of these slick yet gritty songs have more in common with the Ohio Players than Silver Convention or Donna Summer.

KC and the Sunshine Band contains two of the group’s biggest hits, “That’s the Way (I Like It)” and “Get Down Tonight“. Both songs reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the R&B Singles Chart.
