Nice ‘N’ Naasty - Salsoul Orchestra (The)

Nice ‘N’ Naasty
THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA was the brainchild of once MFSB member and legendary vibraphonist, Vince Montana Jr.
Formed in 1974 THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, house band for the remarkable Salsoul Records, sometimes featured up to 50 members amongst its ranks including a number of former musicians from MFSB of the Gamble & Huff fronted Philadelphia International Records and fused elements of Funk, Latin, Disco and Philly Soul into their compositions.
Conducted by Montana, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA began an eight-year recording period in 1975 releasing eleven sensational albums during that time featuring production input from Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams and Bunny Sigler through the years.
BBR is proud to bring you the second instalment of our Salsoul Orchestra reissues – The Salsoul Orchestra - Nice & Naasty. Recorded at the famous Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia with production and much of writing being tended to by Vince Montana Jr., Nice & Naasty also features some great musicianship from greats like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Norman Harris and Ron Baker.
Standout tracks include the title single, which achieved a highly impressive #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and Ritzy Mambo, which also achieved a spot on the highly coveted singles chart. The album itself accomplished a solid #30 position on the US Pop Album chart.
This newly remastered, fully expanded edition comes packaged complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Funk, Soul, Disco, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!

The Salsoul Orchestra
THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA - as well as being the legendary backing band for many of the Salsoul Records artists - were a highly successful act in their own right. Throughout their career they consisted of up to 50 members (many of whom were also standing members of MFSB – Philadelphia Internationals house band). They released eleven successful albums on Salsoul Records over a seven year period.
BBR are delighted to release an expanded re-master of THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, their debut LP from 1975. The album features the amazing singles ‘Salsoul Hustle’ (R&B #44/Pop #76), ‘Tangerine’ (R&B #36/Pop #18) and ‘You’re Just The Right Size’ (R&B #76/Pop #88) which also featured ‘Chicago Bus Stop (Ooh I Love It)’ as a B-side. The track went on to be regarded as a Dance classic.
BBR is delighted to launch our extensive program of expanded CD re-masters from the legendary SALSOUL label. These in demand titles have been out of print for almost two decades.
