Get Down: Expanded Edition - Gene Chandler

Get Down: Expanded Edition
•    HUGELY POPULAR DISCO CLASSIC RETURNS TO CD!

•    Gene Chandler (born Eugene Dixon in 1937 in Chicago, Illinois.) is best remembered for the R&B and Pop #1 "Duke Of Earl” on which he sang lead vocal as part of the doo-wop group The Dukays. Chandler is hugely admired by soul fans as one of the leading names from the Chicago scene along with Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield, the latter of which often wrote for and produced the singer.

•    Having enjoyed a string of R&B hits through the 60’s and 70’s on various labels including a cover of James Brown’s "There Was A Time” (R&B #22) and "Groovy Situation” (R&B #8) Chandler moved on to become executive vice president at Chi Sound Records, where he released four disco funk albums between ’78 and ‘81.

•    GET DOWN (R&B #12/Pop #47) was the first of these albums and was released in 1978. This great set of funky disco tracks spawned two R&B hit singles with "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same” reaching #51, and the title track "Get Down”, his biggest hit in 13 years, peaking at #3, Pop #53, and going all the way to #11 in the UK.

•    BBR is very proud to present GET DOWN, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.

•    GET DOWN is absolutely essential listening for all Soul, Funk and Disco fans.

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.

Utopia
Enchantment were formed in 1967 at Pershing High School in Detroit and secured their first recording contract two years later by winning first place in a talent contest sponsored by Detroit’s WCHB radio station.
In 1970 Enchantment joined the renowned talent agency Artists International and developed their song and stage craft through the early seventies performing throughout the Detroit area. This period culminated in the group recording the soundtrack for the movie ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ which was released on Polydor in 1975.
The following year Enchantment released their eponymous debut LP which kick started a great run of success and the release of further albums over the following few years which spawned the singles ‘Gloria’ (R&B #5) and ‘Sunshine’ (R&B #3), ‘It’s You That I Need’ (R&B #1), and ‘If You’re Ready (Here It Comes)’ (R&B #14, and an underground dance classic)" to name just a few.
Utopia was Enchantments sixth LP released in 1983 and saw the group take a departure from their horn and string led soulful, lush sound, instead putting the Fairlight synthesizer at the core of the album. Utopia contains both passionate ballads and full-on club tracks. ‘Don’t Fight The Feeling’ was the album’s R&B hit single with its relaxing percussive groove and compassionate vocal from Joe ‘Jobie’ Thomas. ‘I’m Dreaming’ sees Emanuel ‘E.J.’ Johnson lend his hair-raising tenor vocal to a gorgeous composition. ‘Somebody’s Loving You’ and ‘Get It While It’s Hot’ are both bone-fide dance-floor shakers with the former demonstrating the group’s aptitude for straight ahead rhythms and solid propulsive bass-lines.
BBR are very proud to present UTOPIA, fully re-mastered with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.
UTOPIA is a must for all R&B, Soul and Post Disco/Dance fans out there!

MFSB
M.F.S.B. (Mother Father Sister Brother) was the house band for Philadelphia International Records and worked very closely with the production team of Gamble & Huff. They backed up groups such as Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The O’Jays, The Stylistics, The Spinners, Wilson Pickett and Billy Paul and are probably best known in their own right for providing the theme music for the legendary TV show Soul Train with ‘T.S.O.P. (The Sound Of Philadelphia)’. With the rise of the Philly soul sound at the beginning of the '70s, business was booming at GambleandHuff's Philadelphia International imprint and as a result M.F.S.B. were kept very busy in the studio providing backing for the aforementioned artists and leaving little time for the groups own recording sessions. It wasn’t until 1973 that the group had a chance to record material in its own name and released their self-titled debut album to high acclaim later that same year. MFSB features extended Funk-Soul-Jazz work-outs as on the seven-minute cover of Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Freddie's Dead’ that opens the set. The group also re-interpreted Sly Stone's ‘Family Affair’ to great effect while emphasising the flute as the driving force for their version of their label mates The O’Jays ‘Back Stabbers’ R&B chart topper from the previous year. The lush Disco/Pop sounds that informed the majority of the group’s later recordings, both in their own right and as the PIR house band, are featured on the other notable tracks on the album, in particular "Poinciana" which also features jazz-blues piano and guitar interjecting the soaring strings. ‘Something For Nothing’ (sampled by Groove Armada) also fits that description with a beautiful string led section that leads to an incredible motif on the horns which blasts through at just the right time, propelling the track forward. BBR is very proud to present MFSB, fully re-mastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. MFSB is a must for all R&B, Soul, Funk and Jazz fans out there!

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.
