Caston & Majors - Caston & Majors

Caston & Majors
CASTON & MAJORS is one of the most sought after Motown releases of all time and BBR is proud to announce the first ever CD release of the classic album with an entirely unreleased follow-up album included as bonus tracks!
The son of the legendary bluesman Leonard "Baby Doo” Caston, Leonard Caston Jr. started learning music and how to play guitar from his father and later made his way onto piano. By the tender young age of eight Caston was playing keys at his local church. It was there he was approached by Maurice McAllister to join a group that would later catch the attention of A&R director Billy Davis of the legendary Chess Records. They recorded a few R&B hits as The Radiants before Leonard Chess sadly died of a heart attack in 1969.
Caston then joined Motown and began working alongside Kathy Wakefield and Frank Wilson, co-writing songs for The Supremes and Eddie Kendricks. Later some of his songs were also recorded by The Four Tops and The Jackson 5. Caston also earned himself a 1975 Grammy Nomination, around the time he met his future wife, Carolyn Majors.
After relocating to L.A. the duo signed a recording deal to Motown. CASTON & MAJORS features the hugely successful track I’ll Keep My Light In My Window. Co-written by Caston with Terri McFadden, the song would go to be recorded by the likes of Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, and The Temptations and would win A Grammy when recorded by the Mighty Clouds of Joy. Other notable tracks include the incredibly uplifting LET THERE BE LOVE and EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT NOW which features a more recognizable Motown sound.
BBR is extremely proud to present CASTON & MAJORS digitally remastered and lovingly repackaged for the first time on CD anywhere in the world!
Complete with liner notes featuring interviews with Leonard Caston and Carolyn Majors with added bonus content, this Motown gem is a must have for any Funk, Soul, Gospel and Disco fan.

End Of The World
End Of The World by Greek Psych / Prog legends Aphrodite's Child. Formed in 1967 by keyboard player VANGELIS, the band also featured Demis Roussos on bass and vocals and Lucas Sideras on Drums. Their classic debut album was released in 1968 and featured the international hit Rain and Tears , partially inspired by Procol Harum's A Whiter Shade of Pale. However, the album revealed a more experimental side to the Band's nature with such Psychedelic gems as The Grass is No Green, You Always Stand in My Way and Day of the Fool. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and includes both sides of Aphrodite's Child's first single as bonus tracks. Our Price: £10.95

Groups & Sessions 65-74
Keith West is best remembered as the voice behind the legendary 'Grocer Jack' single Excerpt From A Teenage Opera, became a champion of both the pop charts and the 60's psychedelic lifestyle. Away from the pin-up-mags Keith also made a serious impression on the underground scene with Tomorrow. Keith enjoyed a wonderful and varied career, this compilation charts his progress through the 1960's and into the '70's with a remarkable collection of rare and previously unissued tracks. Ranging from Four + One, the In Crowd, with guitarist Steve Howe (who, when they became Tomorrow wrote two songs for the cult sixties thriller Blow Up, which appear here for the very first time) to both Teenage Opera Singles.
