New Dimensions
Field gte not in Database

The Three Degrees were hugely successful internationally throughout the seventies, particularly in the UK where they enjoyed ten top forty hits including Year Of Decision, Take Good Care Of Yourself and the anthemic ballad When Will I See You Again, all on Philadelphia International Records. New Dimensions was the trio's first album for Ariola Records where they were teamed with hotter than hot producer Giorgio Moroder, who was riding high on his work with Donna Summer.

The top forty album spent thirteen weeks on the UK album chart in 1979 and spun off three hugely successful megahits in the shape of the discofied Giving Up, Giving In and The Runner as well as the top three ballad Woman In Love.


This newly re-mastered edition features extensive liner notes and seven bonus tracks. Also available: BBR's best-selling reissue of The Three Degrees' Philadelphia International debut.

Back Stabbers
THE O'JAYS were formed by five high school friends in 1958 who after seeing Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers perform, were inspired to start a vocal group. They spent time on various labels and released some fairly successful singles on Imperial Records working with H.B. Barnum and also Gamble & Huff, who were working as a production team for Neptune Records. Neptune folded in 1971 leaving THE O'JAYS, now a trio, in somewhat of a limbo. Having already captured the attention of Gamble & Huff, THE O'JAYS became one of the first signings at the newly formed, now legendary, Philadelphia International Records. Back Stabbers, released in 1972, was the album that made THE O'JAYS a household name and begun a period of incredible success with Philadelphia International, giving them close to 30 singles in the charts including a string of #1 R&B hits helping them to become one the labels biggest group and also serving as a landmark of the classic Philly Soul sound.  The title track was chosen for the first single and reached #5 on the US Pop chart while giving THE O'JAYS a #1 R&B hit. LOVE TRAIN followed suit and duly hit the top spot on the R&B charts as well as clinching the #1 position on the US Pop Chart.  BBR is so very proud to present the first ever expanded edition of this iconic Philly Soul album. Back Stabbers has been lovingly-mastered and carefully repackaged in full-expanded form. Complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews along with added bonus content.Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Funk, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!

Originally formed as a gospel quartet in the 1950s, The Isley Brothers went on to massive success in a decades-spanning career which has seen them produce music in genres from doo-wop to R&B, funk, soul and rock.Reaching their third decade as a musical act in the 1970s, The Isley Brothers continued to reinvent themselves with line-up changes and new sounds ranging from 1973 s hit rock anthem Summer Breeze to the smash hit slow jam Don’t Say Goodnight (It s Time for Love) in 1980, incorporating elements of funk and disco along the way.The 1983 release of the album Between The Sheets brought yet another revolution in the band's sound, as they added synthesizers and electronic beats. The title track became a smash hit, bringing the digital era to the top of the R&B charts, where it reached #3. The track also achieved international success, reaching the UK Singles chart.

Stares and Whispers
Songstress Freda Payne has enjoyed a lengthy career in the world of music and while probably best known for her early 70s hits, Band Of Gold and Bring The Boys Home, the native Detroiter has been a staple performer since her early teens.After her success working with Holland-Dozier-Holland for Invictus Records, Freda recorded two albums for ABC Records before signingwith Capitol Records in 1977. Freda’s Capitol debut LP Stares And Whispers featured production work from Frank Wilson (known for hisHit making records with Eddie Kendricks, The Supremes, and Lenny Williams) and Tony Camillo (known for hits with Gladys Knight & The Pips among others). The producers assembled an all-star cast of musicians and singers for the L.A. sessions including Greg Phillinganes, Jack Ashford and Angela Winbush. Much anticipated by Freda’s many fans worldwide, the 1977 set spawned a major dance hit (Love Magnet) and according to Freda, remains one of her personal favourite albums of the many she’s recorded since 1963.

Press:-

"Detroit chanteuse Freda Payne is best remember by the British public for her 1970 chart topper, the matrimonial melodrama, ‘Band of Gold’, released by Holland-Dozier-Holland’s Invictus label. A huge international smash and a million seller that became something of a milestone around Ms. Payne’s neck, its notoriety has unfairly eclipsed the rest of the records she made in the ‘70s, some of which were very good, but just didn’t reap the success or accrue the exposure they deserved.”
