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!

With a career spanning more than 4 decades and numerous appearances in the charts and the music award circuit, Grammy Hall Of Fame inductee, Patti LaBelle sealed her fate as one of the great American Divas.

Patti LaBelle started singing at church and later formed Patti Labelle and the Bluebelles, later know as LaBelle. Patti and her group enjoyed many chart hits during their 15 years together including their number one, gold selling single Lady Marmalade. 1977 brought the split of LaBelle and with that Patti embarked on her solo career with Epic Records. Her self-titled, debut solo album, produced by the legendary David Rubinson, soared to #16 in the R&B charts and gained a top 100 spot in the pop charts reaching #62.

Patti LaBelle’s incredible vocal talent is easily evident on the track You Are My Friend, Cowritten by Patti and dedicated to her son, a song which she still performs to this day and is a firm fan favourite. Patti Labelle also features her top 40 R&B single, the string-laden upbeat, Joy To Have Your Love and the funk guitar driven cover of, Funky Music (Sho Nuff Turn’s Me On).

Originally released on Epic Records, BBR is proud to present this newly re-mastered and re-packaged expanded edition of Patti LaBelle’s, Patti Labelle complete with extensive liner notes featuring an interview with David Rubinson and added bonus content.

Beat Boy
Released 16th February 2009. The first reissue of this seminal 1984 album 'Beat Boy', the third studio album recorded by the pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage.

This is the first time that the album has been available on CD in the UK. This album saw a change in musical direction with the introduction of new members to replace the departures of Midge Ure and Barry Adamson. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band's electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. Visage were formed as supergroup of their day, formed by Steve Strange and ex-Rich Kid Rusty Egan, they recruited Billy Currie and Midge Ure from Ultravox, Dave Formula and Barry Adamson from Magazine and John McGeogh from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Members came and went but the band's core remained as Strange and Egan.

This CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks not included on the original 8 track release. These include extended mixes of the two singles taken from the album, 'Beat Boy' and 'Love Glove.

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.
