Get Up and Boogie (sometimes also known simply as Silver Convention) was the second album by German euro-disco group Silver Convention, and perhaps best known for including the song "Get Up and Boogie", which hit #1 on June 15, 1976 in Canada[2] and reached #2 in the United States. As with their previous album, the lyrics are minimalistic.[citation needed] Released in 1976, it proved popular on the dance floors and experienced some commercial success as well, reaching number 9 on the Billboard Black Albums chart and number 13 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart.[3] Critical reception of the album was mixed, both back then and today, although an Allmusic review called it "a respectable, if uneven, Euro-disco effort that boasts the disco smash 'Get Up and Boogie'".[4] The album has since been released on iTunes in several countries, sometimes under the title Silver Convention.
