Save Me: Expanded Edition - Silver Convention

Save Me: Expanded Edition
•    SILVER CONVENTION started life in Munich in 1974 as Silver Bird Convention when German songwriting and producing partners Michael Kunzte and Sylvester Levay released the single ‘Save Me’ on Jupiter Records, enlisting three session singers to take care of the minimal vocal refrain on the track. With the "Bird” soon dropped from the acts name ‘Save Me’ became an international Disco hit charting at #30 in the U.K. and across the board in the U.S. at #10 Disco and #103 Pop, heralding the start of continued success throughout the 70's.

•    With a settled line up of Ramona Wolf, Penny McLean and Linda G. Thompson as Silver Convention the group released this, their eponymously titled debut LP (titled "Save Me” outside of Germany) to great acclaim as the Euro-Disco sound made waves across the world with Giorgio Morodor, also based in Munich, surfing the highest.

•    "Save Me” opens the album with its propulsive rhythms, sweeping horns and strings, yearning vocals and soulful sax solos. Follow up single "Fly, Robin, Fly,” a minimal mid-tempo dancer with a very satisfying piano motif and intricate strings, gained heavy rotation on U.S. radio as well as in the clubs, eclipsing the success of ‘Save Me’ by hitting the top spot across the Billboard R&B, Disco and Pop charts and again charting top 30 in the U.K., as well as taking home the Grammy for best R&B Instrumental Performance. Other stand out tracks are the single ‘Always Another Girl’ , ‘Tiger Baby’ UK #41 and ‘I Like It’ which show off the lush, string-laden Euro sound with Levay's arrangements tipping the hat to the likes of Gamble & Huff and Barry White.

•    Reaching #1 and #10 on the U.S. R&B and Pop album charts respectively SILVER CONVENTION (Save Me) has become a very influential album and is rightly regarded as a dance classic in many circles.

•    BBR are proud to present this newly remastered and repackaged expanded edition.

•    Complete with extensive liner notes and the extended 12” versions of ‘Fly, Robin, Fly’ and ‘Tiger Baby’, SILVER CONVENTION is essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Pop, Disco and Dance fans out there!

Tasteful Soul/Bitter Sweet
Field gte not in Database

The Main Ingredient toiled in obscurity for the better part of the '60s before making it big as a sweet, romantic soul outfit with a particular flair for ballads. Paced by the impassioned lead vocals of Cuba Gooding during their prime hit making years, the Ingredient is best remembered for their 1972 classic Everybody Plays the Fool, but released a number of other fine singles, mostly during the first half of the '70s.  The group was formed in Harlem in 1964 as a trio called the Poets, composed of lead singer Donald McPherson, Luther Simmons, Jr. and Panama-born Tony Silvester.

They made their first recordings for Leiber & Stoller's Red Bird label, but soon changed their name to the Insiders and signed with RCA. After a couple of singles, they changed their name once again in 1966, this time permanently to the Main Ingredient.  Tasteful Soul was arguably the Ingredients best album and Bitter Sweet introduced new Main Ingredient member Cuba Gooding. Gooding added power to Tony Silvester's and Luther Simmons' mellow vocal blends. Everybody Plays the Fool paid immediate dividends, going all the way to number three on the Pop charts.

Part 3
Grammy award winners, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND are one of the most recognizable bands of the 70’s, scoring countless hits and gold and platinum records all over the world during the decade with a style of dance friendly R&B that helped to define the Disco era. They also went on to become the first band since the Beatles to score four #1 Pop singles in a 12-month period.
Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch were introduced to each other in 1972 and after hitting it off, began writing together and formed KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND. They put out two singles on TK Records, ‘Blow Your Whistle’, released in September ’73 and ‘Sound Your Funky Horn’ put out in February of ’74. Both saw moderate success, however it was enough for TK Records to want a follow up single and album.
It was during this time while putting demos together that KC and Richard wrote Rock Your Baby, which would later be recorded by George McCrae and released on his debut album of the same name, giving him a #1 hit across the charts and proving that Casey and Finch had what it took to write hit songs. Their second album cemented this notion going triple platinum with a string of top singles to match.
In 1976, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND would release PART 3 which would go on to become their second triple platinum album. Containing such worldwide hits as (SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE) SHAKE YOUR BOOTY, which reached #1 in both the US Pop and US R&B charts as well as scoring #9 on the US Dance Charts and a top 30 spot in the UK. The follow up, I LIKE TO DO IT also fared well in the US winning itself a top 40 Pop position and climbing all the way to #3 on the US R&B charts and a top 10 Dance spot. I’M YOUR BOOGIE MAN would follow and in typical hit fashion soared to #1 on the US Pop charts, #3 R&B and #9 on the US dance charts while KEEP IT COMIN’ LOVE completed the hit line-up, topping the R&B chart and making the #2 position on the Hot 100.
BBR is thrilled to bring you this wonderfully repackaged and beautifully re-mastered edition of KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND – PART 3 complete with liner notes and added bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND – PART 3 is a must have for all Soul, Funk, R&B and Disco fans out there!
