Street Sense (Expanded Edition) - Salsoul Orchestra (The)

Street Sense (Expanded Edition)
BBR is proud to bring you STREET SENSE, the fifth instalment of our Salsoul Orchestra reissues .

THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA was the brainchild of once MFSB member and legendary vibraphonist, Vince Montana Jr. Formed in 1974, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, house band for the remarkable Salsoul Records, sometimes featured up to 50 members amongst its ranks including a number of former musicians from MFSB, and fused elements of Funk, Latin, Disco and Philly Soul into their compositions. Conducted and arranged by Montana, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA began an eight-year recording period in 1975 releasing eleven sensational albums during that time featuring production input from, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams and Bunny Sigler through the years.

Recorded at the famous Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, STREET SENSE was the first Salsoul Orchestra LP that Montana was not involved in, due to a dispute with the label. Legendary DJ and remixer Tom Moulton took on production duties with Salsoul stalwart Thor Baldursson arranging and conducting.

Standout tracks include the opener ‘Zambezi,’ a driving, funky instrumental penned by Donny Hathaway and Richard Evans, ‘Burning Spear,’ another instrumental classic by Evans given the Salsoul treatment, title track ‘Street Sense,’ a full on dance track with  an anthemic vocal chant and pulsing strings, and ‘212 North 12th,’ a funky bass driven jam with great synth and strings. Closer ‘Sun After The Rain,’ co-written by Bebu Silvetti and a worthwhile cover of Jefferson Airplane's ‘Somebody To Love’ completes the set.

This newly remastered, fully expanded edition comes packaged complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Funk, Soul, Disco, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!

Three D
Little can be said about The Sound Of Philadelphia or Philadelphia International Records without mentioning The Three Degrees. This trio may have had more than 12 different women represent the group so far, but they remain one of the most memorable female vocal acts of the last 40+ years.

In 1979, The Three Degrees released their second album for Ariola Records, 3D, produced by Grammy Award winner Giorgio Moroder fresh from winning an Academy Award for his full movie score on Midnight Express and fellow Grammy Award and Academy Award winner Harold Faltermeyer. The album featured such hits as the fantastic driving beat of the US Dance hits JUMP THE GUN and SET ME FREE and a UK Top Ten hit, the hugely popular sweet and soulful, MY SIMPLE HEART. Other notable singles include the gorgeous funky Earth, Wind & Fire inspired ballad STARLIGHT and WITHOUT YOU.

BBR is proud to present this newly re-mastered and beautifully re-packaged expanded edition of THREE D, complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with group members and Ariola Records President Robin Blanchflower along with added bonus tracks. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, this BBR Re-Master is a must have for all Soul, Disco and Girl-Group Pop fans.

Princess
Released 13/04/09. Princess's classic 1986 debut album is given a long-overdue re-mastered Special Edition reissue. The album features Princess's number 7 debut smash "Say I'm Your Number One", and the subsequent hits "After The Love Has Gone", "I'll Keep On Loving You", "Tell Me Tomorrow" and "In The Heat Of A Passionate Moment".

Exclusive bonus tracks have been selected direct from the PWL archives, many making their first-ever appearance on CD. These include sought-after 12' remixes, the scarce soundtrack version of "Tell Me Tomorrow" from the movie "Knights & Emeralds" and the rare original demo of "Say I'm Your Number One".

Originally a backing vocalist, Desiree Heslop's session work with SAW led to the recording of the global smash, "Say I'm Your Number One", released under the stage name Princess. Although subsequent projects failed to match its success, this debut album is not only a crossover classic but also a sought-after collectors' item: scarce original CD copies have often changed hands at three-figure prices.
