The Salsoul Orchestra - Salsoul Orchestra (The)

The Salsoul Orchestra
THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA - as well as being the legendary backing band for many of the Salsoul Records artists - were a highly successful act in their own right. Throughout their career they consisted of up to 50 members (many of whom were also standing members of MFSB – Philadelphia Internationals house band). They released eleven successful albums on Salsoul Records over a seven year period.
BBR are delighted to release an expanded re-master of THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, their debut LP from 1975. The album features the amazing singles ‘Salsoul Hustle’ (R&B #44/Pop #76), ‘Tangerine’ (R&B #36/Pop #18) and ‘You’re Just The Right Size’ (R&B #76/Pop #88) which also featured ‘Chicago Bus Stop (Ooh I Love It)’ as a B-side. The track went on to be regarded as a Dance classic.
BBR is delighted to launch our extensive program of expanded CD re-masters from the legendary SALSOUL label. These in demand titles have been out of print for almost two decades.

The Magic Garden

· Wow! Here at Rev-Ola we’re proud to present this true undisputed classic of orchestrated, psych-tinged soft pop.

· The 5th Dimension are one of the most successful American bands of the late ‘60s. Hey, everybody knows their hit versions of ‘Up, Up And Away’ and ‘Aquarius’!

· However, in 1968 they were teamed up with producer Bones Howe and wunderkind composer/arranger/all-round bona fide musical genius beyond redoubt, Jimmy Webb, who presented them with a complex song cycle based on his own tumultuous relationship with his partner. Nestling between such dyed-in-the-wool classics as ‘Carpet Man’, ‘The Girls’ Song’, ‘The Worst That Could Happen’ (which all became hit singles for other artists) and the life-affirming title track (as covered by Dusty Springfield no less) are such lesser-spotted Webb gems as ‘Summer’s Daughter’ and ‘Paper Cup’. The whole cycle is linked with beautifully ornate pieces of orchestration, sitar flourishes and ethereal vocals.

· The contractual obligation inclusion of an earlier recording of The Beatles’ ‘Ticket To Ride’ was originally shoehorned into the middle of the running order but we’ve taken the liberty of shuffling it to the end so it no longer interrupts the flow of the cycle.

· One hears accolades like "great albums of the ‘60s” bandied around willy-nilly these days but on this occasion we can state it with confidence.

· Digitally re-mastered by the lovely Norman Blake and with liner notes by the gorgeous Duglas T Stewart!

Haven For Sale / St. Elmo’s Fire
Released on 18/01/10. Haven enjoyed success with John Barry on the soundtracks to 60’s film classics including The Knack , Goldfinger , From Russia With Love and critical acclaim for his performances and recordings with jazz drumming supremo Tony Crombie. He further scored a surprise single hit with his recording of Image.

In 1969 and 1971 Haven recorded two albums for CBS , a mix of originals by Haven with his arrangements of covers. All benefiting from the distinctive Haven Lowrey Heritage keyboard sounds which he had been developing throughout the 60’s. Haven For Sale features jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson and direction from Keith Mansfield. St. Elmo’s Fire saw Haven experiment more with the keyboards and its effects, also producing and including more originals than before.
