Queen of the Night: Expanded Edition - Loleatta Holloway

Queen of the Night: Expanded Edition
Loleatta Holloway was a dance music legend. Her amazing vocal talents gained her the reputation as one of the premier vocalists of soul and dance music during the 70’s and 80’s. Holloway started her singing career with Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker (and her Caravans) before striking out on her own. She released her first single "Rainbow ‘71” on the fledgling Apache label before moving to Aware to record her first two albums prior to her work with Gold Mind/Salsoul.

QUEEN OF THE NIGHT, released in 1978 on Gold Mind/Salsoul Records, was the follow up to her breakthrough LP for the label in 1976, simply titled "Loleatta” and re-united her with Salsoul stalwart Norman Harris who took on the production duties. With QUEEN OF THE NIGHT being the singers second LP for this disco dominated label it confirmed her transformation from Southern soul songstress to disco royalty.

Norman Harris' soaring arrangements and infectious rhythms, allied with Holloways powerful vocals ensured that QUEEN OF THE NIGHT would gain commercial as well as critical success.

Opening track ‘Catch Me On The Rebound,’ (R&B #92) with its fluid, funky bass line, chopping rhythms and sweeping strings sets the tone for the album. Along with the opener, ‘Mama Don't, Papa Won't’ and ‘I May Not Be There When You Want Me (But I'm Right On Time)’ were also huge club hits, collectively peaking at #9 on the disco charts and all represented on this release in extended form. However the greatest success from the album was Holloways stunning duet with Bunny Sigler, ‘Only You,’ which peaked at #11R&B and #87 Pop, giving the singer her biggest ever hit.

BBR is proud to present QUEEN OF THE NIGHT. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

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

Blue & Lonesome
The classic 1963 album that took Jones from uptempo country star to the netherworld of aching melancholy. 12 sparkling diamonds from his brief spell at Mercury Records. The title alone sums up the great man and his interpretations of Don Williams' ‘Oh Lonesome Me' and a couple of Hank Williams' broodier ballads make this an absolute must for yearning lovelorn music fans anywhere. Enhanced with half a dozen cuts from his earliest ‘50s 78 recordings, the mood is supremely downbeat even when the tempo lifts.

George Jones became widely acclaimed as the king of heartbreak country and ‘Blue And Lonesome' positively ladles on the angst.

Delusions
First Choice burst onto the scene in 1973 with their debut album Armed and Extremely Dangerous with the single of the same name reaching #11 in the R&B charts. They notched up further hits following this with the likes of ‘Smarty Pants’, ‘Newsy Neighbours’, ‘The Player’ and ‘Guilty’.
DELUSIONS was the groups fourth album and saw original member Joyce Jones leave the group to be replaced by Ursula Herring, joining original members Rochelle Fleming and Annette Guest to create what is often regarded as their best album.
DELUSIONS opens with the instantly loveable classic, ‘Dr Love’ (R&B #23/Pop #41), mixed by Tom Moulton. The album continues to offer a selection of lyrically rich dance tunes and luscious ballads that give Philadelphia native Fleming the perfect backing to demonstrate her talent as one of the most distinctive lead vocalists in soul/dance/pop music. DELUSIONS also boasts the Stevie Wonder penned track ‘Love Having You Around’.
‘Let No Man Put Asunder’ was an underground hit as an album track originally but became a huge dance hit when remixed in 1983 by Shep Pettibone, debuting on the US Dance Charts that year and has since been covered and sampled by many artists such as Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, Kim Syms and Boogie Down Productions.
BBR is delighted to launch our extensive program of expanded CD re-masters from the legendary SALSOUL label. These in- demand titles have been out of print for almost two decades.
Released in a deluxe Super Jewel case with bonus tracks, BBR’s new expanded re-master of DELUSIONS is a must for all Soul, Disco and Funk fans out there!

Diamond Touch
Born in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1944, George McCrae started his musical career singing in church and later joining the glee club at school. He formed his own singing group called The Jivin’ Jets before joining the navy in 1963 and reformed the group on his return in 1967 with the addition of his wife Gwen before they later decided to work as a duo on Henry Stone’s Alston label before Gwen went solo and George worked on sessions until a chance moment had him record Rock Your Baby, written by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch of KC and the Sunshine Band.
Following the huge success of ‘Rock Your Baby’, Grammy Award Nominee, GEORGE McCRAE, followed with the release of his self-titled second solo effort in 1975 (both available on BBR), the latter of which was very well received in the US and even more so in the UK.
The follow up album DIAMOND TOUCH, released in 1976, continues in the rich vein of his previous two LPs. Recorded in New York and produced by Gregg Diamond (hence the title) DIAMOND TOUCH spawned the single ‘Love In Motion’, a super-funky disco stomper with a down and dirty clavinet vamp that drives the track (courtesy of Robert Geiger), and an inspired sax solo from Joe Ferguson, which typifies the strength of Groove across the album, complementing Georges incredible and incomparable Soul vocal talents.
BBR is very proud to present this newly re-mastered and stunningly re-packaged expanded edition of DIAMOND TOUCH complete with extensive liner notes and additional bonus content.
This BBR re-master is a must have item for any Soul, Disco and R&B fans! Especially those who have picked up the BBR re-masters of "Rock Your Baby” and "George McCrae” and want to add to their McCrae collection.
