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.

The Gap Band VI
THE GAP BAND enjoyed huge success throughout the 70s and 80s with their unique sound and contribution to the Funk scene. Formed in 1967 in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, brothers Charlie, Ronnie and Robert Wilson first went by the name Greenwood, Archer and Pine Street Band later shortening the name to THE GAP BAND in 1973. LA Producer, Lonnie Simmons, signed them to his label, Total Experience Records, setting in motion what would be the start of a long and prosperous relationship between THE GAP BAND and Simmons.

Notable hits include their top ten hit Shake, the breakthrough single from The Gap Band II, I Don't Believe You Want To Get Up And Dance (Oops!) and the number one R&B hit Early In The Morning taken from their 1982 #1 R&B album The Gap Band IV. 1985 brought the release of THE GAP BAND VI and with it the band soared back to the top of the R&B album chart with the chosen singles also enjoying impressive chart positions. The first single BEEP A FREAK, peaked at #2 R&B, their highest chart spot since Outstanding took the top spot on the R&B charts in 1982. The albums other two singles followed suit with I FOUND MY BABY hitting #8 in the R&B chart, and DISRESPECT earning a Top 20 R&B position.

Robbery
In 1983, the artist described by renowned US writer Scott Galloway as "the blackest White soul singer/songwriter to illuminate R&B,” the late, great Teena Marie recorded her first of five albums for Epic Records after an initial tenure with Motown that established her as a potent creative fixture in the world of soul music.
ROBBERY (a Top 20 US R&B best-seller) celebrated a new found sense of freedom for the multi-faceted songwriter, producer and musician L.A. native who wrote or co-wrote all nine tracks on the much-acclaimed nine-track set that included the standouts ‘Casanova Brown,’ ‘Dear Lover,’ ‘Ask Your Momma,’ ‘Shadow Boxing,’ and ‘Fix It’(a Top 30 US R&B hit single)
For the sessions, Teena included such renowned musicians as keyboardists Patrice Rushen and John Bokowski Jr., drummer Steve Ferrone (formerly of The Average White Band), percussionist Paulinho Da Costa and bassist Stanley Clarke with string and horn arrangements by Paul Riser.
This expanded edition of ROBBERY - released by SoulMusic Records along with an expanded edition of STARCHILD (SMCR-5049) - includes 12” remixes of three key tracks previously only available on a Japanese reissue of the album and an eight-minute-plus remix of the instrumental of ‘Fix It.’

Starchild
The late, great TEENA MARIE had established herself as a consistent hitmaker among black music audiences in the US as a result of five albums for Motown and her 1983 Epic debut set ROBBERY (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2012 as an expanded edition, SMCR-5048).
With the release of 1984’s STARCHILD (which became a US Top 10 R&B and pop Top 40 best-seller), the L.A. native finally achieved mainstream international pop success thanks to the classic single, ‘Lovergirl,’ which reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and became the biggest hit of the multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and musician’s amazing three-decade-long career.
For the sessions, Teena assembled an all-star cast of musicians and singers that included Leon Ware, Narada Michael Walden, Ronnie McNeir, Billy Griffin, Nathan East, Preston Glass, James Jamerson Jr. and Paulinho Da Costa.
As with its predecessor Robbery, Teena wrote or co-wrote all nine tracks on the album including the standouts ‘Out On A Limb,’ the club hit ‘Jammin’,’ and her soulful tribute to the late Marvin Gaye, ‘My Dear Mr. Gaye.’
This expanded edition of STARCHILD features five bonus tracks including a six-minute-plus instrumental of ‘Lovergirl’ (making its CD debut) and an eight-minute dance mix of ‘Jammin.’

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.
