How High: Expanded Edition
•    BBR is proud to bring you HOW HIGH, the seventh 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. 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, Bunny Sigler and Tom Moulton through the years.

•    Released in 1978 and recorded at the famous Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, as well as Blank Tape Studios and Trident Sound, HOW HIGH was  produced in the main by Salsoul Records singer/songwriter Bunny Sigler with Ron Baker, Ron Tyson, Steve O' Donnell and Colin Horton Jennings also contributing to production duties .

•    Stand out tracks include the opener, title track and single "How High” (R&B #62/Pop #105/Disco #21), a solid, funky disco groove with crisp, driving drums and percussion and great interplay between the saxophone, guitar, vibes and vocals (also represented on this release with a Larry Levan remix), My Number's Up’ and ‘I'll Keep You Warm,’ both great percussion and horn led dancers with a carnival feel, and "Resorts International,” a typically feel good Salsoul stomp.     

•    This newly remastered edition of HOW HIGH comes complete with extensive liner notes and bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Funk, Soul, Disco and Philly Soul fans out there!

Cerrone's Paradise
The influence of JEAN-MARC CERRONE is second perhaps only to that of GIORGIO MORODER. Beginning as a drummer in the late 1960s, CERRONE would go on to sell over 30 million albums in a decades-spanning, internationally-successful career. After the international success of the genre-redefining LOVE IN C MINOR, CERRONE returned in 1977 with his second album, CERRONE'S PARADISE. The 16-minute title track became another enduring example of orchestral Eurodisco, while TAKE ME proved to be a club favourite and TIME FOR LOVE delighted fans with an unexpected excursion into Soulful Jazz territory.

Underworld, The Anthology 2CD
As a producer of European Disco music, the influence of the legendary JEAN-MARC CERRONE is on a par GIORGIO MORODER. BBR is incredibly proud to release the first ever complete career 2CD Anthology on the French King of Disco.
CERRONE’s list of accolades are endless, beginning as a drummer in the late 1960s, CERRONE would go on to sell over 30 million albums, produced over 20 albums, won multiple Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe for "Best Producer of The Year”, 3 gold medals from the French Authors Society while his music has been sampled and remixed by countless artists, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of fans he has played to in a decades-spanning, internationally successful career.
Having produced and performed on a plethora of notable tracks since the late 60’s, CERRONE is has become one of the most successful musicians of our time carving out a place in musical history with his edgy and forward thinking production. From the moment a box of 12” vinyl singles containing Love In C Minor that he pressed with his own money accidentally made its way across the Atlantic to New York and subsequently lit dance floors on fire, his international incredible musical journey was set in motion.
In this expanded 2 CD deluxe Anthology BBR tells a portion of that tale and compiles some of CERRONE’s best-known and revered works, all the way from his earliest recordings with The Kongas and work with Don Ray and through his vast world of solo productions.
Notable tracks include LOVE IN C MINOR, SUPERNATURE, GIVE ME LOVE, JE SUIS MUSIC and HOOKED ON YOU as well as Cerrone’s 2012 club hit GOOD TIMES I’M IN LOVE.
Big Break Records is happy to present to you CERRONE: UNDERWORLD – THE ANTHOLOGY in this deluxe 2 CD package complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews and period pictures.

Law & Order
LOVE COMMITTEE started life as The Ethics, forming in 1967 with members Ron Tyson, Joe Freeman, Carl Enlow and Andrew Collins. The Ethics recorded for a number of independent labels and working along the way with people such as Vince Montana Jr. and Thom Bell. As the group underwent various changes in line up, so too did their home to record spending time at Philadelphia International Records, TSOP, Ariola and Gold Mind Records where they would finally settle under the name LOVE COMMITTEE.
LOVE COMMITTEE now comprised of Ethics members Ron Tyson and Joe Freeman with the addition Norman Frazier and Larry Richardson and it was under this assemblage that two albums would be released on the Baker-Harris-Young led Salsoul subsidiary and together with the musical guidance of Baker-Harris-Young and songsmith Ron Tyson Love Committee cut their debut album: Law And Order.
Prior to the release of Law And Order, Gold Mind Records prepared the single offerings, the first of which was Cheaters Never Win, which achieved an impressive top 60 spot on the US R&B charts while the title track Law And Order, became a huge dance floor hit making it into the R&B top 100 and rocketing all the way to #2 on the US Dance charts. Other notable tracks include the third and final single Tired Of Being Your Fool and funky cut Pass The Buck.
BBR is very proud to present the debut album from Love Committee. This fully expanded edition of Love Committee – Law And Order comes complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with Rev. Joe Freeman and Ron Tyson along with added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have item for any Disco, Funk, Soul, R&B, Philly Soul and Salsoul fan out there!

Electric Head (2CD Expanded Collector's Edition)
Grafting influences from synth-pop, ambient, trance, psychedelic house and leftfield sound experimentation, the Grid’s 1990 debut album "Electric Head” remains an ambitious electronic bricolage of styles.

Band members Dave Ball (Soft Cell) and Richard Norris (ex NME writer, Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve) created an album of monumental ambition and cohesive diversity. Tracks such as ‘Driving Instructor’, informed by Kraftwerk’s minimalist-techno, are set alongside melodic, lush, electronic orchestrations like the album’s 2nd single ‘A Beat Called Love’ and sound experiments like the grand opening track ‘One Giant Step’ that samples the astronaut Neil Armstrong. "Electric Head” serves as testament of a vast sonic vocabulary, little wonder that The Grid were the in-demand remixers of the era for the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Marc Almond, Yello, Brian Eno and the Happy Mondays amongst many others.

The highlight of ‘Electric Head’ is the classic ‘Floatation’ - the summer of 1990’s killer Ibiza ambient dance tune! ‘Floatation’ evokes a dreamscape at the interstices of Pink Floyd, Brian Eno and a dozen half-forgotten film soundtracks: a genre defying meditative evocation of joy, sunshine and freedom. Its tonal pulsing effervescence defined an age, but also defies age; it remains resolutely blissfully potent.

"Electric Head” in this comprehensive expanded edition contains the complete original on the first disc. The second disc contains all the known commercially released remixes (including those by Heller & Farley and Andrew Weatherall) and some previously unreleased contemporaneous Grid tracks from the Warner vaults.
Further listening, further insight, further indefinable artistry.
