  Captain Sky

Click below for a Captain Sky sample:

Super Sporm

  

 
Performing under the name Captain Sky, Daryl Cameron was one of the most overtly P-Funk influenced acts of the late 1970s.  Born in Chicago on July 10, 1957, Cameron came to prominence with the infectious "Super Sporm" in 1978.  With his superhero image qualifiying himself as a potential second-string member of the Funk Mob, Captain Sky released platters with titles like "Dr. Rock" and "Moon Child," with his LP covers often depicting him in humorous situations. Funky as he was, his sound was too closely identified with the P to be truly memorable, and 1986's "You Bring Me Up" was the last known recording by Captain Sky.  

Captain Sky's Deepest Grooves

Adventures of Captain Sky (AVI, 1978)
A funk record on the disco-dominated AVI label is a rare thing, but they scored a winner with this project, especially "Super Sporm," which was retitled "Wonder Worm" for radio purposes. 

Pop Goes the Captain (AVI, 1979)

Concerned Party #1 (TEC, 1980)
Possibly the stankiest of his LPs, although it failed to have much of an impact.  "Sir Jam A Lot" contains a thunderous bass groove that anchors the song, making it one of the lost classics of the 80s.  The entire album is filled with similiarly deranged humps that makes it a worthy addition to any collection.

"Station Brake" (WMOT, 1981)

"You Bring Me Up" (Triple, 1986)
