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.
