Nights (Feel Like Getting Down) - Billy Ocean

Nights (Feel Like Getting Down)

Billy Ocean was one of the most popular and successful R&B singers living in the UK during the 70s and 80s. Born In Trinidad and Tobago in 1950, Ocean moved to England at the age of 8 where after learning his trade singing on the London club scene Billy Ocean released his first single in 1972. Four years later he recorded his first album and captured the #2 spot on the UK pop charts while scoring #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with single, Love Really Hurts Without You. Red Light Spells Danger returned him to the UK #2 spot a year later in 1977.

In 1981 Billy Ocean released Night’s (Feel Like Getting Down). This album was instrumental in re-opening the door to Billy Ocean’s US chart success reaching #27 on the US R&B chart. The title track, penned by musician and producer Nigel Martinez shot Ocean into the R&B Top 10 reaching #7 along with the B-side STAY THE NIGHT scoring #4 on the US Dance Charts. Further hits include Another Day Won’t Matter and Are You Ready.

Grammy Award winner Billy attained superstar status after this album with hits like Caribbean Queen, When The Going Gets Tough and Get out Of My Dreams. Billy is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity following the release of his UK Top 20 album The Very Best Of Billy Ocean album and the re-release of single Suddenly. BBR introduces this timely fully expanded and remastered edition of the classic GTO/Epic album, Nights (Feel Like Getting Down).

Electric Head (2CD Expanded Collector's Edition)
Grafting influences from synth-pop, ambient, trance, psychedelic house and leftfield sound experimentation, the Grid’s 1990 debut album "Electric Head” remains an ambitious electronic bricolage of styles.

Band members Dave Ball (Soft Cell) and Richard Norris (ex NME writer, Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve) created an album of monumental ambition and cohesive diversity. Tracks such as ‘Driving Instructor’, informed by Kraftwerk’s minimalist-techno, are set alongside melodic, lush, electronic orchestrations like the album’s 2nd single ‘A Beat Called Love’ and sound experiments like the grand opening track ‘One Giant Step’ that samples the astronaut Neil Armstrong. "Electric Head” serves as testament of a vast sonic vocabulary, little wonder that The Grid were the in-demand remixers of the era for the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Marc Almond, Yello, Brian Eno and the Happy Mondays amongst many others.

The highlight of ‘Electric Head’ is the classic ‘Floatation’ - the summer of 1990’s killer Ibiza ambient dance tune! ‘Floatation’ evokes a dreamscape at the interstices of Pink Floyd, Brian Eno and a dozen half-forgotten film soundtracks: a genre defying meditative evocation of joy, sunshine and freedom. Its tonal pulsing effervescence defined an age, but also defies age; it remains resolutely blissfully potent.

"Electric Head” in this comprehensive expanded edition contains the complete original on the first disc. The second disc contains all the known commercially released remixes (including those by Heller & Farley and Andrew Weatherall) and some previously unreleased contemporaneous Grid tracks from the Warner vaults.
Further listening, further insight, further indefinable artistry.
