Naturally - Expanded edition
LEON HAYWOOD, who hailed from Houston, Texas, was a singer, songwriter , producer and pianist who is arguably best known in the USA for his crossover 1975 hit ‘I Want'a Do Something Freaky To You’ which has been sampled a multitude of times, most notably on Dr. Dre's ‘Nuthin' But A G Thang.’ Haywood had a long and varied career which included accompanying Guitar Slim on piano when he was still in his teens, as well as joining Sam Cooke's band as keyboardist until the singer passed away. During the 60's he released his own instrumental sides and singles as well as playing on R&B hits for short lived outfits such as The Packers and The Romeos. This period culminated in his first solo R&B hit ‘It's Got To Be Mellow’ which peaked at #21 in 1967 on Decca Records.

NATURALLY was Haywood's ninth studio album and was released in 1980 on 20th Century Fox Records, giving him his most successful release for many years with the LP peaking at #22 R&B and #92 Pop. Haywood was adept at appropriating the musician styles and trends of the day and NATURALLY exemplifies this skill as it stands up to, and in many instances surpasses many of his contemporaries at the time.

The opening track and first single, ‘Don't Push It, Don't Force It’ gave Haywood his biggest chart hit as it reached #2 R&B, #10 Disco and crossed over to #49 Pop, as well as #12 Pop in the U.K. The clean, crisp, funky tone of this mid-tempo groover locks you in from the opening bars and won't let go, setting the scene for the rest of the album. Second single ‘If You're Looking For A Night Of Fun (Look Past Me I'm Not The One)’ (R&B #67) is another incessantly solid and funky track with Haywood refreshingly looking to get to know his intended in body, mind and soul before gettin' it on. Other very notable tracks are ‘Daydream’ and the accusatory ‘Who You Been Giving It Up To.’

At this time Haywood also penned several songs for Carl Carlton's eponymous album including the smash hit ‘She's A Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked).’ Watch out for this album as a forthcoming release on BBR. · BBR is proud to release the first ever CD issue of NATURALLY, this fully remastered and repackaged edition comes with extensive liner notes and bonus content and is a must for all Funk, 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.

-Geoff Barton / Classic Rock May 2012  

"With all four singer/songwriter/guitarist John Miles’ Decca albums already released by sister label Lemon, the 7T’s imprint releases one which is arguably stronger than the others, as it rounds up the 17 songs Miles released as singles A- and B-sides during his Decca tenure.”

Oceans Of Time
UK five-piece rock band TOUCHSTONE are excited to reveal they have signed an exclusive deal with Hear No Evil Recordings/Cherry Red Records for their much-anticipated 4th studio album ‘Oceans Of Time’, which is due to be released on 7th October 2013.

The release of the new album will be supported by a 6-date UK tour in October, where they will be joined by co-headliners Von Hertzen Brothers from Finland.

The band comment: "TOUCHSTONE are delighted to have signed to Hear No Evil Recordings for the release of our new album, Oceans Of Time. We are very much looking forward to working alongside Hugh Gilmour, the label manager, and to being a part of the bigger Cherry Red Records stable.”

‘Oceans Of Time’ features 11 tracks recorded and produced at Outhouse Studios by renowned producer John Mitchell (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis, Funeral For A Friend), and is the successor to Touchstone’s previous  albums: The City Sleeps (2011), Wintercoast (2009) and Discordant Dreams (2007).

On this eagerly awaited new album, the band continue their "Wintercoast” story with the dynamic, moving epic title track ‘Oceans Of Time’; the sequel to the title tracks of Wintercoast and The City Sleeps. Another familiar theme comes from ‘Shadow’s End’, the final part of the Shadow trilogy, which started with the track ‘Shadow’, from Discordant Dreams.

Fans will enjoy a more guitar-orientated sound from Oceans Of Time than previous albums due to the nature of the writing process. All the music is written by Touchstone, with lyrics by lead vocalist Kim "Elkie” Seviour, and keys man Robert Cottingham, whilst guitarist Adam Hodgson again designed the cover artwork.
