Relight My Fire: Expanded Edition - Dan Hartman

Relight My Fire: Expanded Edition
    Daniel Earl Hartman a.k.a. DAN HARTMAN was an American musician, singer, songwriter and producer who hailed from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is best known for his disco hits ‘Instant Replay,’ ‘Love Sensation’ and ‘Relight My Fire’ as well as penning the second biggest hit for the Edgar Winter Group, ‘Free Ride,’ of which he was a member. Having schooled himself playing bass and writing songs for his first band The Legends (which also included his brother Dave) Hartman joined the Edgar Winter Group and appeared on three of their albums before going solo in 1976.

    After initially releasing the magnificently titled promotional album "Who Is Dan Hartman and Why is Everyone Saying Wonderful Things About Him?,” which was a retrospective on his career until that point, Hartman scored big in 1978 with the #1 Disco smash ‘Instant Replay’ (from the album of the same name) which also crossed over to the U.S. And U.K. Pop charts.

    In 1979 Hartman released RELIGHT MY FIRE (R&B #67, Pop #169), and again hit the top of the Disco charts with the title track, a bonefide disco classic that featured Hartman's friend Loleatta Holloway on vocals and is preceded by the understated "Vertigo” which perfectly sets your anticipation before the main event.  ‘Relight My Fire’ was subsequently covered by U.K. boy band Take That featuring Lulu, who took their version to the top of the U.K. Pop charts in 1993.

    Throughout the LP Hartman keeps the party energy in full flow and on the opener ‘Hands Down’ we are treated to Stevie Wonder and Edgar Winter trading licks on harmonica and sax respectively.  ‘Just For Fun’ has a very solid syncopated groove in contrast to the tone of the lyric and exemplifies Hartman's production style. On closer ‘Free Ride’ Hartman shows off his deft production skills by taking the hit he wrote for the Edgar Winter Group and changing the rhythmic emphasis to take the track firmly into the dance floor realm.

    Hot Shot Records/BBR is proud to present RELIGHT MY FIRE. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with a foreword from mixer John Luongo, extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

    This BBR/Hot Shot Records re-master is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!

Premiata Forneria Marconi, better known in English speaking countries as P.F.M. , were arguably the finest Italian Progressive rock band of the 1970 s and certainly one of the most well known.

Love Tracks
Grammy Award winner and Hall of Famer, GLORIA GAYNOR was born on the 7th of September 1949 in Newark, N.J. and sang as young girl in her school choir, mixed chorus and the her school’s girl glee club. While she knew she one day wanted to have a career in music, GLORIA GAYNOR still went to school with the aim of having something to fall back on and studied beauty and business courses.
In 1965 GLORIA GAYNOR released her first solo single titled She’ll Be Sorry with the B-Side Let Me Go Baby on Jocida Records. However, it wasn’t until the 1970’s that Gaynor began to taste real success with the release of her first two albums, Experience and Never Can Say Goodbye, (both available on BBR) that she began to stand out as a unique and recognizable force on the black music scene.
In 1978 GLORIA GAYNOR released her 6th studio album, "LOVE TRACKS” on Polydor Records, now fully remastered and repackaged by BBR!
"LOVE TRACKS” features some of the best musicians of the time including Paulinho Da Costa on percussion and Wah Wah Watson on guitar while production duties were left in the capable hands of Dino Fekaris.
"LOVE TRACKS” contains the million-unit selling chart topper, ‘I Will Survive’, originally a B-side to Gloria’s cover of ‘Substitute’. While ‘Substitute’ still obtained chart success it was ‘I Will Survive’, which quickly gained traction in the clubs, and as a result the record label deleted the 12” single and replaced the album version with the 12” version to boost album sales. Other notable tracks include the US Dance chart top 20 hit ‘Anybody Wanna Party’, which simultaneously climbed all the way to #16 on the US R&B Chart.
BBR is so very proud to announce the release of GLORIA GAYNOR – LOVE TRACKS. Lovingly remastered, this CD comes complete with extensive liner notes including interviews and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have item for all Disco, Soul, Funk and R&B fans out there!

Big Girls Don’t Cry (Expanded Edition)


THE WEATHER GIRLS were Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes. The duo started out in the gospel group NOW (News of the World) before becoming backup singers with Sylvester in the late seventies. They were then named TWO TONS OF FUN and had a run of Disco hits on the Fantasy label.


The group then signed with Columbia Records and changed their name to The Weather Girls in 1982. The newly named duo’s first single IT'S RAINING MEN was quickly a massive club hit in the US, topping the Dance/Disco chart in 1982. Their debut album SUCCESS featured the hit single and was a US chart hit. Despite only being a minor pop hit at home, IT’S RAINING MEN became an international hit and eventually made number 2 in the UK in 1984. Since then it has become a massive anthem.

1985 saw the second album release by the duo under the name, The Weather Girls. BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY is another very well crafted pop/dance record for the duo, the recording of which was guided by producers Hank Medress and Jeff Kent.

BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY provided the dance floor hit ‘No One Could Ever Love You More Than Me,’ which peaked at #26 on the US dance charts and is featured here in extended form. ‘Well-A-Wiggy’ also charted making a respectable #76 on the US R&B charts and #107 Pop. Other notable tracks are the title track itself and an interesting cover of Canned Heat’s ‘Down On The Corner.’

Cherry Pop is very proud to present BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY, expertly re-mastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and ‘80s Pop fans out there!

In The Evening: Expanded Edition
    SHERYL LEE RALPH is a very successful actress, singer and philanthropist who has appeared in many Broadway musicals, Hollywood films and television shows since the beginning of the 1980's. Ralph first came to prominence having created the role of Deena Jones in the incredibly successful and award winning Broadway musical Dreamgirls for which she was nominated as Best Actress  at the 1982 Tony Awards.  This role was recently reprised on the silver screen by Jennifer Hudson who won an Oscar for her efforts.  Ralph has since secured both Tony and Drama Desk best Actress awards for her performances in subsequent Broadway shows.

    As a result of the success of Dreamgirls Ralph ventured into the recording studio in 1984 to provide us with her acclaimed debut album IN THE EVENING. Produced by Trevor Lawrence (I’m So Excited) , IN THE EVENING immediately struck a chord with the U.S. music buying public who helped the title track and lead single peak at #6 on the Billboard Dance charts.

    The title track ‘In The Evening’ is a full on 80's dancer with a solid and smooth synthesized rhythm section which pins down the groove, and the obligatory electric lead guitar which adds a grittier night time vibe to the track, allowing Ralph's vocal to shake off the daily trials of big city life and lead us to where she feels most alive... in the evening. The second single to be lifted from the album, ‘You're So Romantic’ (R&B #84) is another dancer and picks the pace up from ‘In The Evening.’ Again the smooth synthesized rhythms are in evidence, this time with a very Latin tinged horn line that drives the track while Ralph pines for the attention of her lover. Other notable tracks are the mid-tempo groove ‘Ready Or Not’ with its bubbling bass line and anthemic chorus, and the beautiful, piano led ballad ‘I'm So Glad That We've Met.’

    Hot Shot Records/BBR is proud to present IN THE EVENING. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes that feature an interview with Trevor Lawrence and added bonus material.

This Hot Shot Records/BBR remaster is a must have for all Eighties R&B, Soul, Dance and Pop fans out there!
