Hot Property - Heatwave

Hot Property
During their most commercially successful years, Heatwave were a band that crossed many borders, laying claim to such international hits as Boogie Nights , Gangsters Of The Groove, Too Hot To Handle, The Groove Line and Always And Forever, all having a huge impact on both sides of the Atlantic. The members of Heatwave hailed from all over the Globe, making this group a truly international act in every sense and contributing to their unique and highly influential sound.

Having already enjoyed great success with their first two albums, 1979 saw the release of Heatwave's third Top Twenty R&B album Hot Property. With Rod Temperton about to provide his contributions to Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall, he continued to write songs for Heatwave under the production of Phil Ramone. Ramone had already worked with artists such as Barbara Streisand, Burt Bacharach and Paul Simon, picking up where Barry Blue left off and helping Heatwave attain another Gold selling album in the USA.

The first USA single Eyeballin returned Heatwave to the US R&B top 30. British audiences were treated to the laid back groove of the hit Razzle Dazzle. BBR is proud to introduce this newly re-mastered edition featuring extensive liner notes with interviews from the band members and added bonus content including the fan favourite Birthday, a non-LP B-side

Further hits include the touching, R&B, Doo Wop flavoured single, Where Did I Got Wrong and the Rod Temperton penned UK Top 40 single Jitterbuggin, both of which helped drive this album into the UK Pop and US R&B Top 30

Open Sesame- Expanded Edition

Kool And The Gang needs no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 80s and have sold over 70 million albums world wide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as Summer Madness, Get Down On It, Celebration and who could forget that slammin funk monster that featured so heavily in Quentin Tarantino's cult flick - Pulp Ficton; Jungle Boogie. Kool & The Gang was started by two brothers, Robert Kool Bell and Ronald Bell along with five friends in 1964. After some time playing the growing Jersey City Jazz coffeehouse scene and spots like Café Wha? in New York City, performing alongside other yet-to-be famous talents of the time, Kool & The Gang were signed to Redd Coach Records in 1968 and a year later were recording for the small subsidiary label, De-Lite Records. The 1970s was a busy and fruitful decade for the group, with Kool & The Gang, releasing twelve studio albums, two live albums and appearing on numerous occasions across the charts. 1976 saw Ricky Westfield leave the group to form his own band, North East South West, and would also mark the end of collaborations between the original seven members of KOOL & THE GANG. Later that year the group released Open Sesame which features the up-tempo single Superband which gained a top 20 R&B chart spot and the title track which reached #6 R&B and #55 on the US pop charts and soared to #13 on the Dance chart and was later featured in the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever.
