One Hit Wonders of the ’80s: 1986 – Sly Fox

“Let’s Go All the Way” by Sly Fox

Sly Fox was a short-lived duo, consisting of Gary “Mudbone” Cooper, an African American funk session musician and former vocalist with Parliament-Funkadelic, and Michael Camacho, a Puerto Rican-accented vocalist. They only released one album – Let’s Go All the Way. The title track from the album turned out to be a smash hit in the U.S., peaking at #7 on April 12, 1986.

Their follow-up singles, “Stay True” and “Don’t Play With Fire” did not sell very well. Since the dissolution of the band, Cooper has remained involved in the music industry. His most recent album, Fresh Mud, was a collaboration with Dave Stewart that combined blues and rap. Meanwhile, Camacho has concentrated on jazz singing, and he released his solo album Just For You.

Their one hit has been a lasting impact, as it is played on retro flashback programs and 1980s nights at dance clubs.

Now “Let’s Go All the Way” back to 1986, and listen to some Sly Fox:
