Harvest for the World- Expanded Edition
Released on 24/10/11.

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 doowop 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 socially-conscious soul of the title track from their 1976 album HARVEST FOR THE WORLD. HARVEST FOR THE WORLD was a landmark release for the Isley Brothers. While other Soul and Funk acts responded to the commercial pressure to record Disco, the band continued to absorb new influences while steadfastly progressing their sound.

First single WHO LOVES YOU BETTER became a Top 10 R&B smash hit and reached the US Pop charts. Second single HARVEST FOR THE WORLD followed suit, in addition to giving the group their first Top Ten UK hit of the 1970s, re-establishing THE ISLEY BROTHERS as an act with an international audience.

Go for Your Guns
Released 24/10/11. 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 socially-conscious soul and funk of their mid-70s albums.

GO FOR YOUR GUNS, released in 1977, reached #1 on the R&B album charts and #6 on the Pop charts and has gone on to become many fans' favourite Isley Brothers album. First single THE PRIDE (PART 1) topped the R&B singles chart and was followed by the funk rock of LIVIN' IN THE LIFE, which reached the Top 5 on the R&B chart and also the US Pop Top 40.

However, the album's true lasting classics are the oft-sampled FOOTSTEPS IN THE DARK (which became the basis for ICE CUBE's IT WAS A GOOD DAY) and VOYAGE TO ATLANTIS, which although only a small R&B hit at the time, later became a Quiet Storm radio classic and a staple of the band's live shows.

Relight My Fire: Expanded Edition
    Daniel Earl Hartman a.k.a. DAN HARTMAN was an American musician, singer, songwriter and producer who hailed from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is best known for his disco hits ‘Instant Replay,’ ‘Love Sensation’ and ‘Relight My Fire’ as well as penning the second biggest hit for the Edgar Winter Group, ‘Free Ride,’ of which he was a member. Having schooled himself playing bass and writing songs for his first band The Legends (which also included his brother Dave) Hartman joined the Edgar Winter Group and appeared on three of their albums before going solo in 1976.

    After initially releasing the magnificently titled promotional album "Who Is Dan Hartman and Why is Everyone Saying Wonderful Things About Him?,” which was a retrospective on his career until that point, Hartman scored big in 1978 with the #1 Disco smash ‘Instant Replay’ (from the album of the same name) which also crossed over to the U.S. And U.K. Pop charts.

    In 1979 Hartman released RELIGHT MY FIRE (R&B #67, Pop #169), and again hit the top of the Disco charts with the title track, a bonefide disco classic that featured Hartman's friend Loleatta Holloway on vocals and is preceded by the understated "Vertigo” which perfectly sets your anticipation before the main event.  ‘Relight My Fire’ was subsequently covered by U.K. boy band Take That featuring Lulu, who took their version to the top of the U.K. Pop charts in 1993.

    Throughout the LP Hartman keeps the party energy in full flow and on the opener ‘Hands Down’ we are treated to Stevie Wonder and Edgar Winter trading licks on harmonica and sax respectively.  ‘Just For Fun’ has a very solid syncopated groove in contrast to the tone of the lyric and exemplifies Hartman's production style. On closer ‘Free Ride’ Hartman shows off his deft production skills by taking the hit he wrote for the Edgar Winter Group and changing the rhythmic emphasis to take the track firmly into the dance floor realm.

    Hot Shot Records/BBR is proud to present RELIGHT MY FIRE. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with a foreword from mixer John Luongo, extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

    This BBR/Hot Shot Records re-master is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!
