Delegation II - Delegation

Delegation II
Len Coley and Roddy Harris formed DELEGATION in Birmingham, during the mid 70’s; later adding Jamaican born Ricky Bailey whose voice was to give them added flair on lead, helping them to compete in the competitive UK Soul Market.
The Group worked with one of the UK’s most prolific hit makers of the 70’s and 80’s, Ken Gold, responsible for masterminding The Real Thing as well as writing and producing for artists such as The Nolans, Liquid Gold and Billy Ocean who secured a deal with State Records after which the group released a few UK singles with moderate success.
However, when Oh Honey hit the US charts in 1979 it scored an incredibly impressive top 50 US Pop chart position and smoothly grooved all the way to #6 in the US R&B charts helping the album enter the top 100 on the Billboard Hot 200 and came to rest easily at #8 on the US R&B album chart.
DELEGATION later moved to Ariola Records while changing their line-up with Len Coley being replaced with Bruce Dunbar, a Broadway Musical singer who starred in the musical "Hair" before joining the band, bringing with him his captivating falsetto, so well suited to DELEGATION’s smooth funky sound. Once they had drafted in the arranging talents of keyboard virtuoso, Lynton Naismith, DELEGATION went to work on 'Eau De Vie' which would go on to become their highest selling album achieving a Gold Record status in 1980.
1981 would see the release of DELEGATION II, which created such hits as the single I WANTCHA BACK, a low tempo, funky bass line driven Disco single. IN THE NIGHT stepped up the heat, again driven by the incredible talents of Jon Plotel on bass and the Lynton Naiff arranged string section. SINGING closed out the single releases, a big production number with some great performances by Jon Plotel, Lynton Naiff, Robert J. Ahwai on guitar and Kofi Aivor on percussion and of course the incredible horn section that feature throughout the album.
BBR is very proud to bring you DELEGATION II, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with liner notes and extended bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, DELEGATION II is a must have or all Soul and Funk and Jazz fans out there!

Together
When Rock Your Baby took the global charts by storm in the summer of 1974, it brought wide recognition to T.K Records and instant acclaim for George McCrae. His wife Gwen, who had already tasted chart success on Columbia in 1970, joined him in Henry Stone s Miami empire, and her 1975 hit with Rockin Chair prompted Stone to record the couple on an album of duets.
Together was an obvious title, and Winners Together Losers Apart , an appropriate hit 45 in spring 1976. This release also features special bonus solo tracks by George, including I Ain’t Lyin / You Got to Know , an in-demand US and UK hit 45 from 1975, the collectable Everytime You Say Goodbye from 1984, and club hit Do Something from 1995.

Three D
Little can be said about The Sound Of Philadelphia or Philadelphia International Records without mentioning The Three Degrees. This trio may have had more than 12 different women represent the group so far, but they remain one of the most memorable female vocal acts of the last 40+ years.

In 1979, The Three Degrees released their second album for Ariola Records, 3D, produced by Grammy Award winner Giorgio Moroder fresh from winning an Academy Award for his full movie score on Midnight Express and fellow Grammy Award and Academy Award winner Harold Faltermeyer. The album featured such hits as the fantastic driving beat of the US Dance hits JUMP THE GUN and SET ME FREE and a UK Top Ten hit, the hugely popular sweet and soulful, MY SIMPLE HEART. Other notable singles include the gorgeous funky Earth, Wind & Fire inspired ballad STARLIGHT and WITHOUT YOU.

BBR is proud to present this newly re-mastered and beautifully re-packaged expanded edition of THREE D, complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with group members and Ariola Records President Robin Blanchflower along with added bonus tracks. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, this BBR Re-Master is a must have for all Soul, Disco and Girl-Group Pop fans.
