Part 3 - K.C. And The Sunshine Band

Part 3
Grammy award winners, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND are one of the most recognizable bands of the 70’s, scoring countless hits and gold and platinum records all over the world during the decade with a style of dance friendly R&B that helped to define the Disco era. They also went on to become the first band since the Beatles to score four #1 Pop singles in a 12-month period.
Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch were introduced to each other in 1972 and after hitting it off, began writing together and formed KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND. They put out two singles on TK Records, ‘Blow Your Whistle’, released in September ’73 and ‘Sound Your Funky Horn’ put out in February of ’74. Both saw moderate success, however it was enough for TK Records to want a follow up single and album.
It was during this time while putting demos together that KC and Richard wrote Rock Your Baby, which would later be recorded by George McCrae and released on his debut album of the same name, giving him a #1 hit across the charts and proving that Casey and Finch had what it took to write hit songs. Their second album cemented this notion going triple platinum with a string of top singles to match.
In 1976, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND would release PART 3 which would go on to become their second triple platinum album. Containing such worldwide hits as (SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE) SHAKE YOUR BOOTY, which reached #1 in both the US Pop and US R&B charts as well as scoring #9 on the US Dance Charts and a top 30 spot in the UK. The follow up, I LIKE TO DO IT also fared well in the US winning itself a top 40 Pop position and climbing all the way to #3 on the US R&B charts and a top 10 Dance spot. I’M YOUR BOOGIE MAN would follow and in typical hit fashion soared to #1 on the US Pop charts, #3 R&B and #9 on the US dance charts while KEEP IT COMIN’ LOVE completed the hit line-up, topping the R&B chart and making the #2 position on the Hot 100.
BBR is thrilled to bring you this wonderfully repackaged and beautifully re-mastered edition of KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND – PART 3 complete with liner notes and added bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND – PART 3 is a must have for all Soul, Funk, R&B and Disco fans out there!

Back Stabbers
THE O'JAYS were formed by five high school friends in 1958 who after seeing Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers perform, were inspired to start a vocal group. They spent time on various labels and released some fairly successful singles on Imperial Records working with H.B. Barnum and also Gamble & Huff, who were working as a production team for Neptune Records. Neptune folded in 1971 leaving THE O'JAYS, now a trio, in somewhat of a limbo. Having already captured the attention of Gamble & Huff, THE O'JAYS became one of the first signings at the newly formed, now legendary, Philadelphia International Records. Back Stabbers, released in 1972, was the album that made THE O'JAYS a household name and begun a period of incredible success with Philadelphia International, giving them close to 30 singles in the charts including a string of #1 R&B hits helping them to become one the labels biggest group and also serving as a landmark of the classic Philly Soul sound.  The title track was chosen for the first single and reached #5 on the US Pop chart while giving THE O'JAYS a #1 R&B hit. LOVE TRAIN followed suit and duly hit the top spot on the R&B charts as well as clinching the #1 position on the US Pop Chart.  BBR is so very proud to present the first ever expanded edition of this iconic Philly Soul album. Back Stabbers has been lovingly-mastered and carefully repackaged in full-expanded form. Complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews along with added bonus content.Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Funk, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!
