KC and the sunshine band
KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND formed in 1973 in Miami, Florida. Their most well-known songs include their five US #1 hits GET DOWN TONIGHT, THAT’S THE WAY (I LIKE IT), (SHAKE, SHAKE SHAKE) SHAKE YOUR BOOTY, I’M YOUR BOOGIE MAN and PLEASE DON’T GO. Their music has been played at every major sporting event in the world and has also featured in over 200 movies. They were the first band since the Beatles in 1964 to score four #1 Pop singles in one 12-month period.

KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND was their second album and was a triple platinum hit in the US upon its release. It was released in 1975, the same year KC won the American Music Award for Best R&B Artist.

GET DOWN TONIGHT was a smash hit upon it’s release, gaining the group the #1 spots in both the US and Canadian Pop chart as well as the R&B chart. The rare TOM MOULTON MIX of GET DOWN TONIGHT sees it’s debut CD appearance in the UK on this reissue.

THAT’S THE WAY (I LIKE IT) built on this success, matching the previous singles #1 positions but adding the Netherlands to the list. The single I GET LIFTED, a George McCrae cover, has been sampled by the likes of N.W.A., Janet Jackson, Notorious B.I.G., Dr. Dre, MC Shan, Afrika Bambaataa and Digital Underground.

Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, K.C. & THE SUNSHINE BAND is a must for all Soul, Funk and Disco fans out there!

Press:-

"Driven along by Robert Johnson's funky drumming, a bunch of bobbling basslines, some joyously riffing horns and a succession of hooky chants dressed up as chorus, the idea was to put feet on dancefloors and a smile or two on some faces. Their best stuff - That's The Way I Like It, Get Down Tonight, I Get Lifted, and Boogie Shoes are all on this 1975 album". 3/5* (Chris Wells / Echoes - August 2012)

Bow Wow Wow
Bow Wow Wow was Malcolm McLaren's (RIP Bless him) first big project after the Sex Pistols imploded, and the erstwhile media manipulator made sure his new band bounded onto the scene with a whole gaggle of gimmicks. The first was Annabella Lwin, a 14-year-old Burmese immigrant McLaren found working in a laundry and decided to remake into a post punk goddess. Then there was what used to be Adam's Ants, the trio of Matthew Ashman (guitar), Leroy Gorman (bass), and Dave Barbarossa (drums), whom McLaren introduced to African music -- specifically, the sound of Burundi tribal drumming – then induced to dump Adam and follow him. But it was the product that ultimately pulled the package together. Bow Wow Wow's cassette-only first single, a home-taping anthem called C-30, C-60, C-90 Go! , Much the same can be said for the impossibly titled See Jungle! See Jungle! (etc.) which introduced the group to this country.

Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band / Dr Buzzards’ Original Savannah Band Meets King Penett
Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band were one of the most original sounding outfits of the Disco era. A skillful blend of big band , Hollywood styled strings, swing influenced grooves and for 1976, modern rhythm and percussive techniques aimed directly at the dance floor.

They played around New York City and upstate usually dressed in cool 40's gangster garb; doubled breasted suits and fedora hats. They made a huge impact on clubs around the world and became regulars at Studio 54, New Yorks premier club and were feted as one of the new genres most creative practioners.

They were spotted by RCA Records and offered a contract. They sold a lot of records between 1976 and 1979 and here on one CD are the two biggest albums of their short lived career, Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band (1976) and Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band Meets King Penett (1978)

In 1979 Cory Daye left the group to pursue a solo career, teaming up with Sandy Linzer for the album Corey & Me and in 1981 August Darnell and Coati Mundi formed Kid Creole & The Coconuts, who enjoyed phenomenal success in Europe during the early 80s. Their third album, 1982's Tropical Gangsters, with the album reaching No.3 staying on the album chart for 40 weeks and all their singles top 10 hits in the UK.

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.

Take Me To God (Deluxe Edition)
Bass player, dub fan, author, documentary maker, world music explorer, modal jazz obsessive, old punk: the man born John Wardle is all these things and more.

Jah Wobble made his name after founding PiL with John Lydon in 1978. The first line-up of The Invaders Of The Heart emerged in 1983 after Wobble was inspired by music from around the globe. During the late 80s and 1990s, Wobble enjoyed a creative and commercial peak, recording for Oval and Island Records.

In the late 1990s, he began a prolific new chapter with his own label 30 Hertz, a period which is still creating such peaks as the acclaimed Chinese Dub album (2008).

Issued by Island Records in 1994, Take Me To God is Jah Wobble’s most commercially successful LP to date, peaking at No. 13 and yielding the hits Becoming More Like God and The Sun Does Rise . Take Me To God was inspired by myriad styles of world music, pre-empting an explosion of interest in the genre.
Among the many guests included Baaba Maal, The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan, Natacha Atlas, Gavin Friday and reggae star Chaka Demus.
