Bluntly, Rise and Shine! stands as the finest British funk album of the 1970s, a set which counts only Roogalator among its rivals, but squeaks past by virtue of that group's failure to truly get it on in the studio. The opening "Use Your Imagination" has enough funkadelia around its edges to salve the most demanding palate, while "Little Girl" might borrow its vocal arrangements from something slick by Hall & Oates, but nobody told the instruments that. Occasionally the sublime groove does fade - "That's Enough" is a ponderous dirge, again looking. But still it is a pulse-pounding package, plus it packs one of the most appropriate sleeves of the era as well. Kokomo hit everyone with the force of an express train.

Bluntly, Rise and Shine! stands as the finest British funk album of the 1970s, a set which counts only Roogalator among its rivals, but squeaks past by virtue of that group's failure to truly get it on in the studio. With only "Rise and Shine" breaking the five minute barrier, the album does err on the side of concise caution - live, Kokomo were capable of some truly gargantuan grooves, and it would have been rewarding to catch a couple on vinyl.
