Discotheque - Herbie Mann

Discotheque
HERBIE MANN (born Herbert Jay Solomon) was one of Jazz music’s most prolific performers and innovators excelling predominantly on flute, but also tenor saxophone, clarinet and bass clarinet. Throughout the 50’s and 60’s Mann played in many groups exploring the boundaries of Jazz by absorbing Afro-Latin themes and recording and touring throughout the world. During this time he was able to nurture some of the greatest Jazz musicians as his sidemen, most notably Willie Bobo, Chick Corea, Roy Ayers and David Newman.
In the 70’s Mann extended his repertoire further by incorporating rock, pop, reggae and disco into his sound, which included this 1975 offering on Atlantic Records, DISCOTHEQUE. The album boasts a number of great jazzy grooves that show off Mann’s incredible dexterity on the flute and employs his vast experience to its full extent. DISCOTHEQUE was received very well in Jazz, R&B, Pop and Disco markets on its release achieving #5, #19 and #27 on the Billboard Jazz, R&B and Pop album charts respectively.
The albums one and only single was an instrumental cover of ‘Hi-Jack,’ which was originally recorded by Latin influenced Funk group Barrabas in 1974, and again confirmed the wide appeal that Mann enjoyed as it charted at #14 Pop, #24 R&B and an incredible #1 on Billboards Disco Action chart as the track lit up dance floors across the USA. Other notable tracks are the self-penned ‘High Above The Andes,’ showing off Mann’s love of the Latin groove, and a gorgeous rendition of Stevie Wonders ‘Bird Of Beauty.’ This edition also features the non-album B-side ‘Orient Express’ and the original unedited version of ‘Hi-Jack’.
BBR is very proud to bring you DISCOTHEQUE, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content. DISCOTHEQUE is a must have for all (Latin) Jazz, Funk and Dance/Disco fans out there!

Bitter Sweet
King, led by later disc jockey Paul King, were among the biggest and brightest stars of the vibrant 80s British pop scene. They grew out of the Reluctant Stereotypes, a highly regarded but underachieving Coventry band, with musicians including former Members' drummer Adrian Lilywhite. They settled on a distinctive image - multi-coloured Doc Martens, with King himself resplendent in bright suits and cockatoo hair. They achieved immediate success with the UK number 2 chart hit 'Love And Pride' (included here in remixed form). This, their second album from 1985, which also includes the top ten hit 'Alone Without You', as well as a further hit, 'Torture', and the delicate ballad 'The Taste Of Your Tears'. This was to be their final album before Paul embarked on a solo career. As well as numerous bonus tracks never released before on CD, this package includes exclusive liner notes written by long-serving Coventry journalist Pete Chambers, who has followed the band's career for many years. Our Price: £9.95

The Changing Of The Guard ~The Sixties London Pop Explosion
The Changing of the Guard is a unique music and dialogue sound collage of Swinging London in 1968; a time of exciting developments in all the artistic fields and a time when England set cultural standards that the world is still trying to emulate. Protagonists central to the scene are included here: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones discussing revolution; his manager Andrew Loog Oldham explaining business philosophy; the young Michael Caine debating morals in the context of the permissive society; Julie Christie on fame and Lee Marvin on Mini cars and mini skirts! The dialogue is edited against brilliant historic London pop of the period: big hits such as The Small Face's 'Itchychoo Park' and 'Here Come The Nice', Chris Farlowe's memorable number one 'Out of Time', 'If Paradise is Half as Nice' by The Amen Corner and mercurial psychedelia; The Marquis of Kensington, Fleur De Lys, Duncan Browne, Billy Nicholls and the first line up of Humble Pie featuring Steve Marriott and the Face Of 1968 - Peter Frampton. Special mention too for an early song from Vashti! The success of Andrew Oldham's two recent autobiographies, confirms that there has never been more fascination with the period, even if some of it is nostalgia for what we have subsequently unfortunately lost. Our Price: £9.95
