Ladies Night: Expanded Edition - Kool & The Gang

Ladies Night: Expanded Edition

· KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as "Summer Madness,” "Get Down On It,” "Celebration” and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick - Pulp Fiction; "Jungle Boogie.”

 

· 1979 would see Kool & The Gang release LADIES NIGHT, their 13th studio album. LADIES NIGHT was a departure from the group’s edgier Funk sound that had brought them plenty of success throughout the 1970’s. The decision was made to bring in the Grammy Award winning Brazilian musician Eumir Deodato as producer, which heralded a smoother and more pop focused era for Kool & The Gang and strengthened their grip on both the R&B and Pop charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

 

· LADIES NIGHT, with its combination of pure, straight ahead dance cuts and down tempo soul pop helped Kool & The Gang strike a new chord with the music buying public and quickly hit the top of the U.S. R&B album chart as a result. The album also easily crossed over and peaked at #13 on the Pop chart.

 

· Singles featured on LADIES NIGHT include the title track, which rocketed to #1 on the U.S. R&B chart while gaining top ten spots on both the U.S. and U.K. Pop charts. "Too Hot” followed suit, landing at #3 R&B, #5 U.S. Pop and #23 in the U.K. singles chart. While not as successful as the previous two singles "Hangin’ Out” still gained a very respectable chart position slowing at #36 on the U.S. R&B and #52 on the U.K. chart.

 

· BBR is proud to present LADIES NIGHT. This fully expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes, with new interviews, and added bonus material.

 

· This BBR re-master is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Aretha
After 6 years at Columbia, Aretha Franklin signed with Atlantic Records in 1967 and unleashed a stunning array of hit singles during the mid-sixties to the mid- seventies including Respect, Chain Of Fools, Spanish Harlem and Until You Come Back To Me (That’s What I’m Going To Do).
After Aretha’s tenure with Atlantic had lost its direction her career was in need of a new focus and Clive Davis knew that he could restore her status to that of the late sixties and early seventies and set her to work with producers Chuck Jackson and Arif Mardin.
The work paid off quickly with the album’s first single UNITED TOGETHER returning Aretha to the top 3 of the R&B chart. It was her greatest showing on this chart since 1977.
The second single was a cover of the Doobie Brothers WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES which gave her another top 20 R&B hit and also her first appearance in the UK top 50 since 1974. The final single from ARETHA, COME TO ME, also made an appearance in the R&B top 40.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, ARETHA is a must for all Soul and Funk fans out there!
