Diamond Touch - George McCrae

Diamond Touch
Born in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1944, George McCrae started his musical career singing in church and later joining the glee club at school. He formed his own singing group called The Jivin’ Jets before joining the navy in 1963 and reformed the group on his return in 1967 with the addition of his wife Gwen before they later decided to work as a duo on Henry Stone’s Alston label before Gwen went solo and George worked on sessions until a chance moment had him record Rock Your Baby, written by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch of KC and the Sunshine Band.
Following the huge success of ‘Rock Your Baby’, Grammy Award Nominee, GEORGE McCRAE, followed with the release of his self-titled second solo effort in 1975 (both available on BBR), the latter of which was very well received in the US and even more so in the UK.
The follow up album DIAMOND TOUCH, released in 1976, continues in the rich vein of his previous two LPs. Recorded in New York and produced by Gregg Diamond (hence the title) DIAMOND TOUCH spawned the single ‘Love In Motion’, a super-funky disco stomper with a down and dirty clavinet vamp that drives the track (courtesy of Robert Geiger), and an inspired sax solo from Joe Ferguson, which typifies the strength of Groove across the album, complementing Georges incredible and incomparable Soul vocal talents.
BBR is very proud to present this newly re-mastered and stunningly re-packaged expanded edition of DIAMOND TOUCH complete with extensive liner notes and additional bonus content.
This BBR re-master is a must have item for any Soul, Disco and R&B fans! Especially those who have picked up the BBR re-masters of "Rock Your Baby” and "George McCrae” and want to add to their McCrae collection.

Love In ‘C’ Minor
As a producer of Disco music, the influence of JEAN-MARC CERRONE is second perhaps only to that of GIORGIO MORODER. Beginning as a drummer in the late 1960s, CERRONE would go on to sell over 30 million albums in a decades-spanning, internationally-successful career.

LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR’s title track, composed in collaboration with Eurodisco legend ALEC R. CONSTANDINOS, was a nearly-17 minute long opus which expanded the boundaries of Disco music. LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR reached the Top 30 of the US Soul singles chart and was internationally successful as a Pop record, reaching both the US and UK Top 40. The album also charted on both the US Pop and R&B charts and LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR and MIDNITE LADY made #2 on the Billboard Disco chart. LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR broke new ground in dance music and its echoes would be heard in the production sounds of many European and American Disco records over the next five years.

BBR is very proud to present LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR in full and expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes that feature interviews. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR remaster is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!

Cerrone's Paradise
The influence of JEAN-MARC CERRONE is second perhaps only to that of GIORGIO MORODER. Beginning as a drummer in the late 1960s, CERRONE would go on to sell over 30 million albums in a decades-spanning, internationally-successful career. After the international success of the genre-redefining LOVE IN C MINOR, CERRONE returned in 1977 with his second album, CERRONE'S PARADISE. The 16-minute title track became another enduring example of orchestral Eurodisco, while TAKE ME proved to be a club favourite and TIME FOR LOVE delighted fans with an unexpected excursion into Soulful Jazz territory.
