In 1974 funk and disco band Kool and The Gang had heir first number one R&B single with Hollywood Swingin'. The song appears on their Wild and Peaceful album from that year. Hollywood Swingin' has been sampled numerous times, including by DJ Kool's party rocking' classic Let Me Clear My Throat, and on rapper Mase's Puff Daddy produced number one hit Feels So Good. Kool and the Gang was originally formed in 1964 by teenage brothers Robert and Ronald Bell as The Jazziacs, performing mostly instrumental songs. In 1967 the band changed it's name to Kool & The Flames. The name caused confusion because James Brown's band was known as the Famous Flames, and when they had a record deal with De-Lite Records in 1969 they changed the name once again to Kool And The Gang.
