Foxy: Expanded Edition - Foxy

Foxy: 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), Richie Puente, Jr. (percussion), Charlie Murchiano (keyboards), and Joe Galdo (drums) and together they fused a Cuban influenced Latin dance sound with a Euro disco edge.

 

· Music fans would be forgiven for thinking that Get Off (CDBBR0241) was Foxy's debut album as it introduced them to the wider world with its title track reaching the coveted #1 spot on the R&B charts in 1978. However the harder, more rock and Latin influenced disco sound on Get Off had been preceded by the group’s eponymous debut for Dash Records in 1976.

 

· FOXY has a much smoother, slicker and less in your face sound then Get Off and as a result many of its tracks gained wide exposure on the dance floors while not producing a bone-fide crossover hit.

 

· The major club hit from the album, ‘Get Off Your Aahh! And Dance,’ did achieve a very respectable #39 R&B in April 1976 featuring a much lusher and glossier Euro influenced disco sound with a subtle Latin edge that is also present on cuts such as the opener ‘You Make Me Hot’ and closer ‘Let’s Love.’ ‘Baby I’m Leaving’ is the one example of a strictly Latin sound which has been likened to recordings by El Chicano and Jose Feliciano around that time.

 

· BBR is very proud to bring you FOXY, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content.

 

· FOXY is a must have for all Disco, Funk, and Latin fans out there!

Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six Top 40 singles. The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, Many of their songs, including ‘Let It Ride’, ‘You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet’, ‘Takin' Care of Business’, ‘Hey You’ and ‘Roll On Down the Highway’ still receive play on FM classic rock stations.

Not Fragile is the bands third album and was released in 1974. The title is thought to be a response to Yes' Fragile. The style has been described as a cross between Mountain and early ZZ Top. The arrival of Blair Thornton (replacing Tim Bachman) gave the band a true second lead guitar to pair with Randy Bachman, and dual-guitar solos are prominent features. It proved to be the group's most popular album, and is the only BTO album to have reached #1 on the US Pop Album charts. ‘Roll On Down The Highway’ and ‘You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet’ were hit singles.

PRESS

"BTO are best known for their rock anthem You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, but its nine-song parent album, Not Fragile, has many other highlights.” – Tim Jones, Record Collector, June 2012
