Clean- Expanded Edition
Edwin Starr laid the foundations for his musical career at the tender age of 15 when he started his first band, The Future Tones in 1956. The vocalist on the most popular protest song ever recorded, the Norman Whitfield produced, War, Edwin Starr had a string of hits and chart successes all the way from his earliest recordings in the 60s right up to the 2000's with his songs being covered by various artists.

1978 saw the release of Edwin Starr’s second 20th Century Records album, CLEAN. CLEAN would go onto become Edwin Starr’s most successful album since his Motown days. The album entered the top 100 in the US Pop charts and peaked at #22 in the US R&B charts. The singles climbed even higher with CONTACT becoming a top 10 hit in the UK and would go on to become one of the most instantly recognizable Disco anthems while the upbeat, I’M SO INTO YOU became a minor UK Soul hit. CLEAN also features the heartfelt soulful ballad JEALOUS helping this to be an extremely well rounded and enjoyable album.

BBR is very proud to present this newly re-mastered and wonderfully re-packaged expanded edition of CLEAN which makes its international CD debut here. This reissue features two bonus tracks mastered from the original 20th Century mater tapes in New York by Grammy nominated Engineer, Kevin Reeves.

Don't Look Any Further- Expanded Edition
Born February 1943 in Birmingham, Alabama, Dennis Edwards began his singing career at a very early age when he began singing in his father’s church choir at the tender age of 2. After moving to Detroit several years later, Edwards continued his passion for singing in a number of groups and later formed his own Soul/Jazz outfit called Dennis Edwards and the Fireballs and in 1967 joined The Contours before leaving to replace David Ruffin as The Temptations lead singer the following year.

After a very successful period with The Temptations, winning two Grammy Awards for the songs Cloud Nine and Papa Was A Rolling Stone, it was time for Edwards to try a second attempt at his solo career on Motown, this time with great success! 1984 saw the release of DON T LOOK ANY FURTHER. Produced by Dennis Lambert, and featuring support vocals from the likes of Paulette Williams who was the first lead singer of Rufus before Chaka Khan, the album soared into the top 50 in the Pop charts and #2 spot in the R&B charts. The title track, a duet with Siedah Garrett, also known for her duet with Michael Jackson on I Just Cant Stop Loving.

You and co-writer of Man In The Mirror, features a timeless bass line and Dennis Edwards smooth vocals lock it down into a serious groove making it easy to see why it became a UK hit twice in the eighties and a timeless dance classic. Other notable tracks are the soulful second single, You’re My Aphrodisiac which climbed to #15 in the R&B chart and the funky synth-led, Cant Fight It.

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.

Eau De Vie
Len Coley and Roddy Harris formed DELEGATION in Birmingham, during the mid 70’s later adding Jamaican born Ricky Bailey whose voice was to give them added flair on lead helping them to compete in the competitive UK Soul Market.
The Group worked with one of the UK’s most prolific hit makers of the 70’s and 80’s, Ken Gold, responsible for masterminding The Real Thing as well as writing and producing for artists such as The Nolans, Liquid Gold and Billy Ocean who secured a deal with State Records after which the group released a few UK singles with moderate success.
However, when Oh Honey hit the US charts in 1979 it scored an incredibly impressive top 50 US Pop chart position and smoothly grooved all the way to #6 in the US R&B charts helping the album enter the Billboard Hot 200 and make #8 on the US R&B album chart.
DELEGATION later moved to Ariola Records while changing their lineup with Len Coley being replaced with Bruce Dunbar, a Broadway Musical singer who starred in the musical "Hair" before joining the band, bringing with him his captivating falsetto, so well suited to DELEGATION’s smooth funky sound. Once they had drafted in the arranging talents of keyboard virtuoso, Lynton Naismith, DELEGATION went to work on 'Eau De Vie' which would go on to become their highest selling album achieving a Gold Record status in 1980.
Notable songs on this album include the groovy first single, PUT A LITTLE LOVE ON ME full of raw Funk bass lines and smooth Lynton Naismith organ paired with dazzling and driving yet subtle guitar licks giving it a slight Calypso groove. This winning formula was continued into the second single YOU AND I, with the guitar coming forward and the group really showcasing their vocal chemistry from the opening. DELEGATION turned up the disco for HEARTACHE No 9 adding a powerful string and horn section to a track that is currently receiving an overdue renaissance on the UK club scene.
BBR is very proud to bring you EAU DU VIE, completely remastered and repackaged complete with liner notes and extended bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, EAU DU VIE is a must have for all Soul and Funk and Jazz fans out there!
