Groove Me - Fern Kinney

Groove Me
Fern Kinney, who hails from Jackson, Mississippi embarked on her singing career in the late 1960’s when she joined the vocal trio The Poppies with whom she had a 1966 #56 Pop hit with ‘Lullaby Of Love’ and also released her own solo single ‘Your Love’s Not Reliable’.
Unfortunately success was limited during this time so Kinney found herself backing up other artists as a session singer as she moved into the 70’s, appearing on the original recording of ‘Groove Me’ by Atlantic Soul legend King Curtis and also backing her ex-bandmate from The Poppies Dorothy Moore, appearing on her 1976 single ‘Misty Blue’ (R&B #2).
After a brief break from the music business Kinney mounted a comeback in 1979, finding a home for her talents on the legendary Southern Soul imprint Malaco, which resulted in the excellent album GROOVE ME. Kinney was inspired to re-record the King Curtis track she had previously contributed to and boldly changed the original rhythm tempo in order to contemporise the song and bring it in to the disco era. This turned out to be a great move as the title track and lead single from the album became an instant disco hit achieving more than respectable charts highs of #26 R&B and #54 Pop in the US while dominating dancefloors across Europe.
‘Groove Me’ sets the tone for what follows with stand- out tracks such as ‘Angels On The Ground’ and ‘Watcha Gonna Do’, maintaining the feel good factor. The second single released from GROOVE ME was a sensual, mid-tempo dancefloor track called ‘Together We Are Beautiful’ and while this great cut didn’t reach the chart heights of ‘Groove Me’ in the US the Europeans were again listening when the track topped the U.K. singles chart.
BBR is very proud to bring you GROOVE ME, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content.
GROOVE ME is essential for all R&B, Soul and Disco fans out there!

"Suzi Quatro is a pioneer female rocker, who wrote the rules as she went along. No mountain too high, no river too deep for this Detroit-born rock ‘n’ roller. She’s conquered them all, and has continued to rock hard for nearly 50 years.”

Intuition
LINX started out life as a 5-piece Soul and Brit-Funk band. Signed to Chrysalis records, the band released their first single in 1980 titled, YOU'RE LYING which yielded the group a top 20 single reaching #15 on the UK Pop Chart. Shortly before the release of their debut album, the band slimmed down their line up and became a duo consisting of bass player Peter Martin and singer David Grant who has worked with many artists as a backing singer including Diana Ross and The Lighthouse Family. In the Spring of 1981 LINX tasted their next piece of chart success when INTUITION, the title track from the band's 1981 album release, made it into the top 10 scoring a #7 on the UK Pop charts featuring a distinct Caribbean flavour. The follow up single, THROW AWAY THE KEY, is driven by a classic funk bass line and David Grant's effortless vocals glide over the top which returned the group to the UK Pop chart at #21. YOU'RE LYING also gained an impressive #27 US R&B chart position with TOGETHER WE CAN SHINE following suit, securing an R&B top 50 spot. BBR is very proud to present the first ever CD issue of the Brit-Funk classic, INTUITION, in full and expanded form,complete with extensive liner notes that feature an interview with David Grant along with added bonus tracks. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Brit-Funk, Soul, Disco and R&B fans out there!
