Award winner and Hall of Famer, GLORIA GAYNOR was born on the 7th of
September 1949 in Newark, N.J. and sang as young girl in her school choir,
mixed chorus and the her school’s girl glee club. While she knew she one day
wanted to have a career in music, GLORIA GAYNOR still went to school with the
aim of having something to fall back on and studied beauty and business
1965 GLORIA GAYNOR released her first solo single titled She’ll Be Sorry with the B-Side Let
Me Go Baby on Jocida Records.
However, it wasn’t until the 1970’s that Gaynor began to taste real
success with the release of her first two albums, Experience and Never Can Say
Goodbye, (both available on BBR) that she began to stand out as a unique
and recognizable force on the black music scene.
1978 GLORIA GAYNOR released her 6th studio album, "LOVE TRACKS” on
Polydor Records, now fully remastered and repackaged by BBR!
TRACKS” features some of the best musicians of the time including Paulinho Da
Costa on percussion and Wah Wah Watson on guitar while production duties were
left in the capable hands of Dino Fekaris.
TRACKS” contains the million-unit selling chart topper, ‘I Will Survive’, originally
a B-side to Gloria’s cover of ‘Substitute’. While ‘Substitute’ still obtained
chart success it was ‘I Will Survive’, which quickly gained traction in the
clubs, and as a result the record label deleted the 12” single and replaced the
album version with the 12” version to boost album sales. Other notable tracks
include the US Dance chart top 20 hit ‘Anybody Wanna Party’, which
simultaneously climbed all the way to #16 on the US R&B Chart.
is so very proud to announce the release of GLORIA GAYNOR – LOVE TRACKS.
Lovingly remastered, this CD comes complete with extensive liner notes
including interviews and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must
have item for all Disco, Soul, Funk and R&B fans out there!
