The Deep O/S/T: Expanded Edition - John Barry, Donna Summer

The Deep O/S/T: Expanded Edition
•    JOHN BARRY and DONNA SUMMER, having climbed to the pinnacle of their respective musical fields, need little introduction to avid music fans. Barry, born to the owner of a small movie theatre chain owner seemed destined to be involved in film making and has become the 20th Century's greatest soundtrack composer, winning no less than 5 Academy Awards and remarkably none of them for his best known and most iconic work for the majority of the James Bond films. Summer, of course, is regarded by many as the Queen of Disco after her ground-breaking and Grammy Award winning collaborations with producer Giorgio Moroder and her subsequent chameleon-esque pop career.

•    Barry was at the height of his powers when he collaborated with an up and coming Summer (she had secured 2 Gold discs by this point) on this soundtrack to Peter Yates movie "The Deep” in 1977, which starred Jacqueline Bissett, Robert Shaw and Nick Nolte among others.

•    Released on Summer’s Casablanca label "The Deep” soundtrack opens with Barry's ‘Return To The Sea – 2033 A.D.,’ a 24 minute ballet based on the theme to The Deep which showcases Barry's subtle and intriguing soundtrack style and the only track on the first side of the original LP. Side two has three different versions of the ‘Theme From The Deep’ which the pair wrote together. The first of which ‘Theme From The Deep (Down, Deep Inside)’ (UK #5) shows Summer affecting her ‘Love To Love You’  orgasmic vocal style to great effect, and the version that closes the album "... (A Love Song),” with its slower tempo, gives her vocal an even more beguiling tone.  

•    The LP also features Beckett’s "Disco Calypso,” a very pleasant contemporary dance track that provides exactly what its title suggests. Unfortunately both the film and the soundtrack have been relatively overlooked since their release but there is no question that this recording stands up to Barry's best work, and with Summer’s involvement  together they have created a unique moment  in both soundtrack and dance music history.

•    Hot Shot Records/BBR are proud to release the soundtrack to THE DEEP, this fully re-mastered and re-packaged edition comes with superb liner notes and bonus content and is a must for all Soundtrack, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Strange fruit
Strange Fruit' is a great undiscovered work of the acoustic rock / classic rock genres, cited by some as a minor masterpiece. In the late 60's Gary Farr made the transition from leader of R&B outfit The T-Bones to a noted singer-songwriter. Recording an album for Marmalade Records, Farr then signed to CBS Records in 1970, recording this sole album for the label. Sessions featured contributions from RICHARD THOMPSON on lead guitar and leading lights of the underground MIGHTY BABY. Unavailable on CD for many years, 'Strange Fruit' is a record made by an often overlooked singer-songwriter made available once more by Esoteric Recordings and is certain to appeal to all who adore acoustic music both melancholic and uplifting. The reissue also features the first ever CD appearance of the single edit of 'Revolution of the Season'. Our Price: £10.95

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.

Bonnie Pointer : Expanded Edition
Released on 23rd of January. The founding member of THE POINTER SISTERS, BONNIE POINTER began her performing career in San Francisco nightclubs in 1969. Soon joined by youngest sister June then by elder sisters Ruth and Anita, The Pointer Sisters released a string of hits on Blue Thumb, trailblazing from genre to genre, including funk and jazz, and won their first Grammy award for the country song FAIRYTALE, written by Anita and Bonnie, which would be recorded by ELVIS PRESLEY two years before his death.

In 1976, Bonnie Pointer left the group and soon after signed with Motown. Produced by (her later husband) Jeffrey Bowen, her first Motown album was a critical and commercial success. First single FREE MY FROM MY FREEDOM reached the R&B top 10 in 1978 and was distinctive for being a disco-era funk record with a surprising banjo solo. The album also featured the classic Motown covers WHEN I’M GONE (Brenda Holloway) and HEAVEN MUST HAVE SENT YOU (The Elgins). The latter was soon rerecorded in a Disco style, becoming a top 20 Pop and top 10 Disco hit and a dance classic. Both versions are included in this reissue
