Play That Funk, released in 2005 by Collectables as part of the Priceless Collection series, contains four of Wild Cherry’s five chart hits — one of which has remained popular 30 years on, while the others aren’t particularly memorable. (Unless you count “Baby Don’t You Know,” since it’s so similar to its superior predecessor, “Play That Funky Music.”) This is more than enough Wild Cherry than most need to own. If your only goal is to obtain “Play That Funky Music,” you’d be much better off with any various-artists disco compilation containing it. If it weren’t for “Play That Funky Music,” it’s quite possible that no label would be motivated enough to release a Wild Cherry compilation. (Note: the track listing for this disc is identical to Sony’s Play the Funk. The packaging, and obviously the title, are both very similar as well.)
