    @ kagetora13, Yeah amazing, how in the 25th century Buck Rodgers was dancing to music, particular to a five year period, from 5 centuries earlier. Just goes to prove that disco has longevity :)

    Those horns are so HOT, and by thatt is the y original!!!Open Sesame is an album released November 1976 by the funk band Kool & the Gang. The album was a disappointment, and received bad reviews from critics, some citing it as the "least funky" album of the band. However, the album still yielded the title track "Open Sesame" which achieved some success in the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The album was one of three albums released in 1976.
