Sly Fox was a short-lived American 1980s duo, consisting of Gary "Mudbone" Cooper, an African American funk session musician and former vocalist with Parliament-Funkadelic, and Michael Camacho, a Puerto Rican vocalist.
The duo was assembled by British producer Ted Currier, and presented as wholesome, clean-living teen idols, an image that contrasted sharply with the perceived sexual connotation of the title of their lone hit.
The group's sole album Let's Go All the Way was released on Capitol Records in 1985, and the title track "Let's Go All the Way" became a Top 10 hit in both the US and UK the following year. The follow-up singles, "Stay True" and "Don't Play With Fire", marked a return to their teen idol image, but these sold poorly.
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.
