The Painter is the eighth studio album by the funk and disco group KC And The Sunshine Band, which was produced by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch. The album was released in 1981 on the Epic label.
The Painter became KC And The Sunshine Bands’ pop-focused music album with the notable track, the ballad "All Through the Night." The song was co-written by Bruce Roberts and Donna Summer and was first recorded by Summer for her 1979 album Bad Girls.
There are some great cuts on the album such as the opener, "Stand Up," which would not have been out of place on an earlier Miami Sound Machine or Gloria Estefan album. The single, "Love Me," has one of the most saavy choruses and features a feel-good refrain.
Built around a soulful undercurrent of organ and the typically excellent brass flourishes the Sunshine Band is known for as well as being sung in Casey's trademark falsetto, "Love Me" could so very easily have brought them back into hit R&B territory.
As KC & the Sunshine Band signed to Epic during Michael Jackson’s legendary run with the label — The Painter was released as Jackson was preparing to record his landmark Thriller album.
Let’s enjoy The Painter… and don’t feel at all guilty if you feel the need to “Shake, Shake Shake Your Booty” while you listen…
