Gloria Gaynor’s Park Avenue Sound - Gloria Gaynor

Gloria Gaynor’s Park Avenue Sound
Grammy Award winner and Hall of Famer, GLORIA GAYNOR was born on the 7th of September 1949 in Newark, N.J. and sang as young girl in her school choir, mixed chorus and the her school’s girl glee club. While she knew she one day wanted to have a career in music, GLORIA GAYNOR still went to school with the aim of having something to fall back on and studied beauty and business courses.
In 1965 GLORIA GAYNOR released her first solo single titled She’ll Be Sorry with the B-Side Let Me Go Baby on Jocida Records. However, it wasn’t until the 1970’s that Gaynor began to taste real success with the release of her first two albums, Experience and Never Can Say Goodbye, (both available on BBR) that she began to stand out as a unique and recognizable force on the black music scene.
In 1978 GLORIA GAYNOR released her 5th studio album, PARK AVENUE SOUND on Polydor Records, now fully remastered and repackaged by BBR!
PARK AVENUE SOUND features some of the best musicians of the time including Keith E. Benson on drums, Norman Harris and Grammy Award Winner Bobby Eli on guitar as well as Grammy Award Winner Ron "Have Mercy” Kersey, who was a member of The Trammps along with Norman Harris.
While the album did not produce any chart hits it did produce some extremely popular club tracks including the single, ‘YOU”RE ALL I NEED TO GET BY’, written by Motown’s prolific songwriting duo, Ashford & Simpson and more recently the song was sampled in the Grammy Award winning duet performed by Method Man and Mary J. Blige on the hit single, ‘I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By’. Other notable tracks include the celebrated ‘THIS LOVE AFFAIR’, which was a long-standing rare groove underground UK hit.
Park Avenue Sound has since become a cult album for disco and GLORIA GAYNOR fans, having never been released on CD until now!
BBR couldn’t be happier to present the release of Gloria Gaynor – Park Avenue Sound. Lovingly remastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews and added bonus content, this BBR Remaster truly is a must have for all Disco, Soul, Funk and R&B fans out there!

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 on 29/08/11. Before embarking on a solo career in the 1980s, Californian R&B singer Michael Wycoff was best known for singing backup on Stevie Wonder’s 1976 album Songs In The Key Of Life and working with artists including Natalie Cole.

D.J. fans rediscovered Love Conquers All, which remains a highly sought-after underground classic to this day.

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.
