Face to Face : Expanded Edition - Evelyn “Champagne” King

Face to Face : Expanded Edition
Released 16th January 2012 Few artists transitioned from the Disco era as successfully as Evelyn "Champagne” King. Tagged as a "Disco Diva” having set dance floors ablaze with her Disco smash hit ‘Shame’, Evelyn was then able to transition into being one of the most successful R&B acts of the 1980s.

She achieved this via her hit 1981 album I’m In Love with the single of the same name becoming a US R&B #1 and reaching #27 in the UK Charts. This success was quickly followed up with the 1982 album Get Loose which became a US R&B #1 album as well as being her first UK Top Forty album, The album also spawned the mega-hit Love Come Down.

The 1983 album Face To Face saw Evelyn being teamed with producers Leon Sylvers (fresh from his chart-topping work with Shalamar) and Prince Collaborator Andre Cymone to develop her transition into the increasingly electronic sounds of the 80s. The album also produced three R&B/Dance hit singles - "Action”, "Shake Down” and "Teenager” – which all gained top 30 spots in the US R&B Chart and all appear in remix format on this BBR remaster.

California Sunset- Expanded Edition
BBR delves deep into the vaults of Motown to bring you an exclusive, never before on CD, reissue of California Sunset by The Originals. This highly sought after album is considered one of THE ultimate underground Motown classics by Soul fans everywhere.

Formed in 1966, THE ORIGINALS worked as studio backup singers and featured on tracks like What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted by Jimmy Ruffin, For Once In My Life by Stevie Wonder and Edwin Starr’s politically fuelled jam, War. The group was made up of four singers, the group's baritone and founder Walter Gaines, tenors Hank Dixon and C.P. Spencer, an original member of Spinners and also bass singer, Freddie Gorman, who was one of the writers of Please Mr. Postman.

By 1970 Spencer had gone solo and was replaced by Ty Hunter who had been the lead singer with Scherrrie Payne in the R&B group, The Glass House.

In the late 60s, under the guidance and writing expertise of Al Green, The Originals scored two of their biggest hits early in their career with Baby I'm For Real and the Gold certified, The Bells. Produced by one of Motown’s legendary producers, Lamont Dozier, California Sunset contains smooth instrumentation and warm vocals befitting of the album title. Tracks like the R&B hit, Good Lovin Is Just A Dime Away and Sweet Rhapsody along with the title track all help secure this as one of the smoothest Soul albums to ever come out of Motor City.

Intuition
LINX started out life as a 5-piece Soul and Brit-Funk band. Signed to Chrysalis records, the band released their first single in 1980 titled, YOU'RE LYING which yielded the group a top 20 single reaching #15 on the UK Pop Chart. Shortly before the release of their debut album, the band slimmed down their line up and became a duo consisting of bass player Peter Martin and singer David Grant who has worked with many artists as a backing singer including Diana Ross and The Lighthouse Family. In the Spring of 1981 LINX tasted their next piece of chart success when INTUITION, the title track from the band's 1981 album release, made it into the top 10 scoring a #7 on the UK Pop charts featuring a distinct Caribbean flavour. The follow up single, THROW AWAY THE KEY, is driven by a classic funk bass line and David Grant's effortless vocals glide over the top which returned the group to the UK Pop chart at #21. YOU'RE LYING also gained an impressive #27 US R&B chart position with TOGETHER WE CAN SHINE following suit, securing an R&B top 50 spot. BBR is very proud to present the first ever CD issue of the Brit-Funk classic, INTUITION, in full and expanded form,complete with extensive liner notes that feature an interview with David Grant along with added bonus tracks. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Brit-Funk, Soul, Disco and R&B fans out there!
