Superbad (Expanded Edition) - Chris Jasper

Superbad (Expanded Edition)
Christopher H. "Chris" Jasper (born December 30, 1951, Cincinnati, Ohio) was an integral member of both The Isley Brothers and Isley-Jasper-Isley. He also went on to become a  successful solo artist and record producer, recording a number of his own solo albums, and producing artists for his New York based record label, Gold City Records. His keyboard and Moog synthesizer work was a primary ingredient of The Isley Brothers sound of the 1970s and 1980s.

Jasper is a classically trained musician and composer having studied at the Julliard School of Music in New York City where he received a degree in music composition. After jamming with Ernie and Marvin Isley, Jasper was asked to join their older brothers group, The Isley Brothers in 1969, with Jasper first appearing on the groups "It’s Your Thing” album from the same year.

After unprecedented success with the Isley Brothers throughout the 1970’s Jasper, along with Ernie and Marvin Isley, formed Isley-Jasper-Isley in 1984 and had success with the huge hit ‘Caravan Of Love,’ written and produced by Jasper.

Jasper released his first solo album SUPERBAD in 1987 on which he was able to fully realize his own sound. The title track was released as a single and with its message of positive education gave Jasper a #3 R&B hit. There are many other strong tracks on the album including the #12 R&B hit ‘One Time Love,’ ‘Earthquake,’ ‘Dance For The Dollar’ and ‘Soul Train.’

BBR is proud to present SUPERBAD in fully expanded and newly re-mastered glory, complete with extensive liner notes that feature a new interview with Chris and added bonus material.

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

Born To Love
When Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack teamed up in 1983 to record the Capitol album BORN TO LOVE, the pair had already experienced success as a duo thanks to the 1980 LP, Live & More (a Top 10 R&B best-selling album). By the time they headed into the studio to cut BORN TO LOVE, Bryson was six years into his recording career and had established himself as one of the premier black male vocalists of the day; Flack was already considered an internationally-renowned artist thanks to classic recordings such as ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song.’
With tracks produced by songwriters Michael Masser, Bob Crewe and Bryson himself, BORN TO LOVE achieved gold status in the US as well as becoming both artists’ highest-charting international success. The impact of the now-classic single, ‘Tonight, I Celebrate My Love’ (co-written by Masser, then known for songs such as Diana Ross’ ‘Touch Me In The Morning’ and Natalie Cole’s ‘Someone That I Used To Love’ and Gerry Goffin) was global, reaching No. 2 on the UK charts, No. 10 in Australia, No. 4 in Canada and No. 16 in the US).
The album also included two other charted singles, ‘Maybe’ and ‘You’re Looking Like Love To Me’ while ‘Heaven Above Me’ got radio and club play in the UK.
This 2013 expanded edition of BORN TO LOVE includes three bonus tracks along with liner notes by Billboard Senior Editor, Gail Mitchell with new quotes from Roberta Flack.
