Get Off: Expanded Edition - Foxy

Get Off: Expanded Edition
FOXY, formed in 1976 in Miami, Florida, were a Latin Dance/Disco group who joined the city’s famed T.K. Records stable as their house band after hit makers K.C. & The Sunshine Band left the label. Foxy consisted of Ish "Angel” Ledesma (vocals, guitar), Arnold Pasiero (bass), Ritchie Puente Jr. (percussion), Charlie Murchiano (keyboards), and Joe Galdo (drums) and together they fused a Cuban influenced Latin Dance sound with a strong Euro Disco edge, releasing their debut eponymous album in 1976 with moderate success. However the single ‘Get Off Your Aahh! And Dance’ reached #39 on the U.S. R&B chart in April of that year.
 
In 1978 Foxy decided to change their sound and direction by incorporating a harder, funkier, rockier edge while still retaining the strong Cuban and Latin influence they had always had. The result was this album on Dash Records, GET OFF, a very strong collection of dance floor tracks fusing the Latin and Funk-Rock influences with a hard hitting fast paced Disco edge.
 
The title track and only single released from the album gave Foxy their biggest hit as it scorched dance floors across the U.S. ‘Get Off’ reached the coveted #1 spot on the R&B charts, #9 Pop, and #18 Dance. The track was co-written by Carl Driggs who also contributed vocals and percussion to the project. The success of the title track helped the album reach the highs of #3 R&B and #12 Pop. Other very notable tracks are the incredible mid- tempo soul groove ‘Madamoiselle’, the passionate ‘You,’ and the playful ‘Tena’s Song’, the instrumental of which is also featured in this package.
 
BBR is very proud to bring you GET OFF, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content. GET OFF is a must have for all Latin, Funk, and Disco fans out there!

Bow Wow Wow
Bow Wow Wow was Malcolm McLaren's (RIP Bless him) first big project after the Sex Pistols imploded, and the erstwhile media manipulator made sure his new band bounded onto the scene with a whole gaggle of gimmicks. The first was Annabella Lwin, a 14-year-old Burmese immigrant McLaren found working in a laundry and decided to remake into a post punk goddess. Then there was what used to be Adam's Ants, the trio of Matthew Ashman (guitar), Leroy Gorman (bass), and Dave Barbarossa (drums), whom McLaren introduced to African music -- specifically, the sound of Burundi tribal drumming – then induced to dump Adam and follow him. But it was the product that ultimately pulled the package together. Bow Wow Wow's cassette-only first single, a home-taping anthem called C-30, C-60, C-90 Go! , Much the same can be said for the impossibly titled See Jungle! See Jungle! (etc.) which introduced the group to this country.

Gun
Race With The Devil, reached the UK Top Ten in December 1968, it catapulted power trio the Gun from the bowels of the London underground club circuit to the forefront of the British pop scene. Released a couple of months later, the group s self-titled debut album boasted an equally dazzling, idiosyncratic combination of hard rock ferocity and striking orchestral arrangements, and it can now be seen as a major stepping stone in the gradual metamorphosis of late 60s psychedelic rock into what would become known as heavy metal. This newly re-mastered reissue features contemporaneous single releases, rare photos and fresh quotes from founder member Paul Gurvitz.

Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band / Dr Buzzards’ Original Savannah Band Meets King Penett
Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band were one of the most original sounding outfits of the Disco era. A skillful blend of big band , Hollywood styled strings, swing influenced grooves and for 1976, modern rhythm and percussive techniques aimed directly at the dance floor.

They played around New York City and upstate usually dressed in cool 40's gangster garb; doubled breasted suits and fedora hats. They made a huge impact on clubs around the world and became regulars at Studio 54, New Yorks premier club and were feted as one of the new genres most creative practioners.

They were spotted by RCA Records and offered a contract. They sold a lot of records between 1976 and 1979 and here on one CD are the two biggest albums of their short lived career, Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band (1976) and Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band Meets King Penett (1978)

In 1979 Cory Daye left the group to pursue a solo career, teaming up with Sandy Linzer for the album Corey & Me and in 1981 August Darnell and Coati Mundi formed Kid Creole & The Coconuts, who enjoyed phenomenal success in Europe during the early 80s. Their third album, 1982's Tropical Gangsters, with the album reaching No.3 staying on the album chart for 40 weeks and all their singles top 10 hits in the UK.
