Break Out
The Pointer Sisters were one of the most successful female groups the music industry has seen with 13 top 20 singles and 8 top 40 albums shared between the US and UK pop charts. The 1983 release of Break Out saw the group reach the peak of their commercial success. This was the group's sixth album with producer Richard Perry, with whom they had three big US Pop hits: FIRE (#2, 1979), HE'S SO SHY (#3, 1980) and Slow Hand (#2, 1981). With BREAK OUT, the group took the advice of RUTH POINTER’s son, who wanted them to record a dance album. PERRY sought out associate producers for each track, giving BREAK OUT the electronic feel of 1983 R&B. The album’s lead single I Need You was recorded to reintroduce the group to their African-American fanbase, reaching the R&B Top 20. Second single Automatic reached #2 R&B and #5 Pop, giving the group their biggest hit for three years and becoming massively successful internationally. Jump (For My Love) followed suit, reaching #3 Pop and R&B in the US and #6 in the UK. BBR is very proud to present this 2CD deluxe edition, featuring the 1983 version of the album (massively successful on its release in the UK) for the first time on CD, plus the updated 1984 version and all of the 12" and 7" versions of each track from the album. Released in a deluxe digipak with 24-page booklet, the extensive liner notes feature interviews with Anita Pointer, Ruth Pointer, Richard Perry and several of the album’s associate producers. This edition of Break Out introduces BBR’s new deluxe 2CD re-masters.

Originally released in 1985, A.C. was André Cymone’s third and final solo album. It contains his biggest hit, the #10 R&B single The Dance Electric, written and produced by Prince, who had offered Cymone the track when the two met in a nightclub.Fans of both André Cymone and Prince have been campaigning for decades to have A.C. released on CD.

Friends 2CD
Shalamar’s Friends was one of the biggest and most celebrated classic soul albums of the 1980s. BBR is proud to present the first ever deluxe edition of the album.
Shalamar was formed in 1977 by Dick Griffey, the booking agent for the legendary R&B TV show Soul Train, and British music producer, Simon Soussan. Initially they used faceless session musicians but when their first single, ‘Uptown Medley’ (R&B #10 / Pop #25) found chart success Griffey created a permanent group. After ‘Take That To The Bank’ (US R&B #11 / Pop #79) Shalamar’s classic line-up of Jody Watley, Jeffrey Daniel and Howard Hewitt continued to have chart success on both sides of the Atlantic with infectious pop-soul cuts like ‘The Second Time Around’ (US R&B #1 / Pop #8) and ‘Make That Move’ (US R&B #6 / Pop #60) all released on Griffey’s Solar imprint.
In 1982 the group released their seventh studio album FRIENDS, which enhanced on the soul groove sound that had brought the group previous success. The opening track and lead US single from the album ‘A Night To Remember’ (US R&B #8 / Pop #44) became an instant R&B classic. The second single in the US was the album closer ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’ (US R&B #33 / Pop #102), another classic mid-tempo R&B dancer that does exactly as it suggests.
FRIENDS enjoyed massive popularity and unprecedented chart success in the UK, becoming one of the biggest selling alums of the year. FRIENDS peaked at #6 on the UK album chart during an incredible 72-week run. The four singles for the UK market, ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’, ‘A Night To Remember’, ‘There It Is’ and ‘Friends’ reached #7, #5, #5 and #12 respectively on the UK singles chart helping Shalamar retain huge popularity to this day. Jeffrey Daniel introduced body popping and the back slide (later renamed the moon walk by Daniel’s student, Michael Jackson) to UK TV audiences on Top Of The Pops in July of 1982 when promoting ‘A Night to Remember’.
BBR is very proud to bring you FRIENDS, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content including a new interview with Jody Watley and a second disc of alternative versions from the US and UK single releases. FRIENDS is a must have for all R&B, SOUL, 80s POP and DISCO fans out there!

You’re Gonna Get Rocked! (Deluxe Edition)

PLEASE NOTE THIS 2CD IS NOT RELEASED UNTIL THE 25TH NOVEMBER - THIS IS A PRE-ORDER & THE 2CD WILL NOT BE SENT OUT UNTIL THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE

"You’re Gonna Get Rocked!", the fifth studio album from international pop icon La Toya Jackson, is given a Deluxe Edition reissue on Cherry Pop.

Originally released in 1988, "You’re Gonna Get Rocked!" was a major departure from La Toya’s earlier material and found her targeting the international market with a host of high-profile collaborators, including synthpop legend Harold Faltermeyer, hip hop innovators Full Force and pop production powerhouse Stock Aitken Waterman. The chart hits "Ain’t Nobody Loves You (Like I Do)" and the title track feature alongside further single releases "Tell Me (She Means Nothing To You At All)", "You Blew" and "Such A Wicked Love".


Digitally remastered direct from the master tapes, this Deluxe Edition also features extensive bonus material. La Toya’s previously unreleased original recording of Nia Peeples’ 1988 hit "Trouble", produced by Steve Harvey, has been mixed especially for this release, which also contains a comprehensive collection of sought-after remixes – including an unheard 1988 remix of the SAW track "Tell Me (She Means Nothing To You At All)" from PWL’s Pete Hammond and a host of others on CD for the very first time.

The extensive booklet also features a reversible cover, additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release. We also hope to have some personal input from La Toya herself.

The fifth child of music’s most famous family, La Toya Jackson needs little introduction. Since her chart debut in 1980, she has made her mark as a Grammy-winning songwriter, singer, twice-bestselling author, businesswoman, philanthropist and inimitable icon of popular culture. Most recently, appearances on "Celebrity Apprentice", "America’s Next Top Model" and "RuPaul’s Drag Race" have been followed with La Toya’s own reality TV show, "Life With La Toya", on the Oprah Winfrey Network, and an off-Broadway guest appearance in "NEWSical The Musical".

"You’re Gonna Get Rocked!" finally follows up the very first Cherry Pop title, La Toya’s debut album "La Toya Jackson", and is the latest in a long line of popular PWL-related reissues.

Loleatta Holloway (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.

LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY, released in 1979, was the singer's third album on Gold Mind/Salsoul Records and was the follow up to "Queen Of The Night” (CDBBR0258).  For this self-titled LP Holloway was teamed with producers Floyd Smith (who took on the majority of tracks) Bobby Womack and Bunny Sigler. Both Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia and the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Alabama were used to achieve the sound they wanted, and they were able to appropriate the famous Muscle Shoals Horns into the bargain.

Opening track, also released a single, is ‘The Greatest Performance Of My Life,’ a typically full on Disco stormer with Holloway in full voice and getting in the party mood no matter what gets in the way. ‘That's What You Said’ is a smoother dance floor groove with the strings subtly leading the track while Holloway questions her lover, which gained a #30 slot on the US Disco chart. Another stand out track is ‘All About The Paper,’ an anthemic groove that was a massive favourite on the dance floors and is also represented here in an extended version.    

BBR is proud to present LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material and is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Dance fans out there!
