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!

Love In ‘C’ Minor
As a producer of Disco music, 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.

LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR’s title track, composed in collaboration with Eurodisco legend ALEC R. CONSTANDINOS, was a nearly-17 minute long opus which expanded the boundaries of Disco music. LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR reached the Top 30 of the US Soul singles chart and was internationally successful as a Pop record, reaching both the US and UK Top 40. The album also charted on both the US Pop and R&B charts and LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR and MIDNITE LADY made #2 on the Billboard Disco chart. LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR broke new ground in dance music and its echoes would be heard in the production sounds of many European and American Disco records over the next five years.

BBR is very proud to present LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR in full and expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes that feature interviews. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR remaster is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!

Delusions
First Choice burst onto the scene in 1973 with their debut album Armed and Extremely Dangerous with the single of the same name reaching #11 in the R&B charts. They notched up further hits following this with the likes of ‘Smarty Pants’, ‘Newsy Neighbours’, ‘The Player’ and ‘Guilty’.
DELUSIONS was the groups fourth album and saw original member Joyce Jones leave the group to be replaced by Ursula Herring, joining original members Rochelle Fleming and Annette Guest to create what is often regarded as their best album.
DELUSIONS opens with the instantly loveable classic, ‘Dr Love’ (R&B #23/Pop #41), mixed by Tom Moulton. The album continues to offer a selection of lyrically rich dance tunes and luscious ballads that give Philadelphia native Fleming the perfect backing to demonstrate her talent as one of the most distinctive lead vocalists in soul/dance/pop music. DELUSIONS also boasts the Stevie Wonder penned track ‘Love Having You Around’.
‘Let No Man Put Asunder’ was an underground hit as an album track originally but became a huge dance hit when remixed in 1983 by Shep Pettibone, debuting on the US Dance Charts that year and has since been covered and sampled by many artists such as Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, Kim Syms and Boogie Down Productions.
BBR is delighted to launch our extensive program of expanded CD re-masters from the legendary SALSOUL label. These in- demand titles have been out of print for almost two decades.
Released in a deluxe Super Jewel case with bonus tracks, BBR’s new expanded re-master of DELUSIONS is a must for all Soul, Disco and Funk fans out there!
