Flying High- Expanded Edition - Prime Time

Flying High- Expanded Edition
PRIME TIME was an electro Funk band who first formed in 1972 out of Los Angeles USA. The line up consisted of Jimmy Hamilton on keyboards, Frankie Babe Moore on drums, Dale Hightower on percussion and Maurice Hayes on the bass and lead vocals.

FLYING HIGH (now available on BBR!) was released in 1984 on Total Experience Records, who by this point were famous for providing a label home for the likes of the GAP Band, Yarbrough & Peoples, Pennye Ford and the legendary Billy Paul.

The suitably sparse opening track I OWE IT TO MYSELF climbed all the way to #21 on the US R&B chart late in 84 and was covered the following year by fellow Total Experience group, the GAP band on The GAP Band VII. Other notable tracks include the atmospheric Electro groove, GIVE IT TO THE BEAT along with the upbeat and slightly haunting jam, LOVE TALK. Both of these tracks went on to become firm Dance and Funk fan favourites throughout the 80’s and beyond. Jimmy Hamilton.

The Very Best Of…
Released on 25/01/10. This album brings together all his Buddah and Arista hits on one CD for the first time.

There are very few artists who can claim to have introduced the 70s Soul world to so many accomplished vocalists as drummer, Norman Connors. He launched the careers of Michael Henderson, Jean Carn, Phyllis Hyman, Eleanor Mills, Dee Dee Bridgewater and many others.

Henderson was an accomplished bass player having worked with Miles Davis in 1970 at the age of 18, before Connors introduced him as a vocalist on Valentine Love . Henderson s bass lines on Connors productions have been heavily sampled in the hip hop era by such notable artists as Jay-Z, Eminem , LL Cool J and Snoop Dogg.

In 1988 Passion was released by Capitol Records and in 1993 and 1996 two albums for Motown Remember Who you are and Easy Living and then an album on his own Starship label in 2000, Eternity . He did not record again until 2009 with an album on Shanachie Records which embraced the new genre of Smooth Jazz , returning to his passion for guest vocalists, featuring ex-Shalamar lead, Howard Hewitt and Peabo Bryson amongst the albums many guests.
