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!

Gravity
James Brown, also known as the Godfather of Soul and the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, had a career that would put any others in the business to shame.  He worked tirelessly until his unfortunate demise on Christmas day in 2006 writing, recording and performing some of Soul and Funks true classics. He notched up an impressive seventeen R&B #1’s including It’s A Man’s Man’s World, I Got You (I Feel Good), Make It Funky and Super Bad.

GRAVITY was produced by Dan Hartman (Relight My Fire, Instant Replay, I Dream About You) in 1986 due to the phenomenal success of LIVING IN AMERICA from the soundtrack to Rocky VI.  This single gained the #4 spot in the Pop chart, #10 in the R&B and #5 in the UK.

GRAVITY, the follow up single reached #26 in the R&B chart as well as #93 in the Pop chart.  Also featured on this album is the James Brown classic TURN ME LOOSE, I’M DR. FEELGOOD which is a sure fire dancefloor filler.

HOW DO YOU STOP was the third single release and returned James to the R&B top 10.  It is a minor classic in Brown’s catalogue and was later covered by none other than Joni Mitchell on her 1994 album Turbulent Indigo.

Cuchi-Cuchi: Expanded Edition
    Maria del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martinez Molina Baeza, professionally known by her stage name CHARO, is a Spanish-American actress, singer, comedienne and flamenco guitarist who was  well known for her flamboyant style and her catchphrase "Cuchi-Cuchi.” Having married Latin superstar Xavier Cugat in 1966, who had taken Charo on as his protégé, this all round performer racked up a multitude of film and television appearances (alongside her musical career - she was voted Best Flamenco Guitarist twice in Guitar Player Magazine) throughout the 60's and 70's which helped to make her a household name in the U.S.A. Charo even had a spell headlining her own shows in Las Vegas.

    In 1977 Charo released her first album, CUCHI-CUCHI, and could not have teamed up with a better group than The Salsoul Orchestra to realise this ambition. As the house band for Salsoul Records The Salsoul Orchestra had honed their skills over the previous few years recording many albums for established artists as well as releasing their own, mostly instrumental recordings, to high acclaim.

    CUCHI-CUCHI opens with the single ‘Dance A Little Bit Closer.’ This track has all the hallmarks of a classic Salsoul groove with its solid mid-tempo percussive beat and strong interplay between the sweeping strings and horn phrases, while Charo's breathy vocal sits on top inviting everyone to get to know each other a little bit better on the dance floor. Title track ‘Cuchi-Cuchi’ is a much more up-tempo and intense affair with swelling strings and horns alongside deft guitar work and arresting drum breakdowns while Charo insists that we all want the same thing... Cuchi Cuchi. Other notable tracks are the excellent reinterpretation of The Rolling Stones ‘Let's Spend The Night Together’ which softens the tone and adds a sultry Latin strut to proceedings, and ‘You're Just The Right Size,’ a classic Salsoul groove with a great guitar hook and shimmering strings under the repeated phrase of the title.

    BBR is proud to present CUCHI-CUCHI. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

This BBR re-master is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Jungle Fever: Expanded Edition
•    Belgian based Latin-soul group THE CHAKACHAS were formed in the 1950s by a group of Latin Soul studio musicians and included the famous Tito Puente’s wife, Kari Kenton on vocals and maracas.

•    CHAKACHAS were no strangers to hits with Eso es el amor, sung in Spanish, hitting #1 on the Belgian charts in 1958 and they got their first taste of UK pop chart action with Twist Twist reaching #48 in 1962.

•    In 1972 CHAKACHAS released their 6th studio album JUNGLE FEVER on Polydor records with the single of the same name becoming a huge success. JUNGLE FEVER climbed all the way to #8 on the US Hot 100 chart and by March of 1972 became certified Gold in the US after selling over one million copies and went on to peak at #29 in the UK where it caused such a stir within the BBC with the heavy breathing and moaning featured in the song that the BBC pulled it from airplay shortly after release.

•    To this day JUNGLE FEVER continues to bring CHAKACHAS notoriety having featured in the movie Boogie Nights and being sampled by numerous artists such as 2 Live Crew, Beatnuts, Public Enemy and Louie Vega as well as being featured on the smash hit Grand Theft Auto computer game franchise.

•    BBR is incredibly excited to present this fully expanded and lovingly re-mastered edition of CHAKACHAS – JUNGLE FEVER. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Latin, Soul, Disco Funk and R&B fans out there!
