Jungle Fever: Expanded Edition - Chakachas

Jungle Fever: Expanded Edition
•    Belgian based Latin-soul group THE CHAKACHAS were formed in the 1950s by a group of Latin Soul studio musicians and included the famous Tito Puente’s wife, Kari Kenton on vocals and maracas.

•    CHAKACHAS were no strangers to hits with Eso es el amor, sung in Spanish, hitting #1 on the Belgian charts in 1958 and they got their first taste of UK pop chart action with Twist Twist reaching #48 in 1962.

•    In 1972 CHAKACHAS released their 6th studio album JUNGLE FEVER on Polydor records with the single of the same name becoming a huge success. JUNGLE FEVER climbed all the way to #8 on the US Hot 100 chart and by March of 1972 became certified Gold in the US after selling over one million copies and went on to peak at #29 in the UK where it caused such a stir within the BBC with the heavy breathing and moaning featured in the song that the BBC pulled it from airplay shortly after release.

•    To this day JUNGLE FEVER continues to bring CHAKACHAS notoriety having featured in the movie Boogie Nights and being sampled by numerous artists such as 2 Live Crew, Beatnuts, Public Enemy and Louie Vega as well as being featured on the smash hit Grand Theft Auto computer game franchise.

•    BBR is incredibly excited to present this fully expanded and lovingly re-mastered edition of CHAKACHAS – JUNGLE FEVER. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Latin, Soul, Disco Funk and R&B fans out there!

Harvest for the World- Expanded Edition
Released on 24/10/11.

Originally formed as a gospel quartet in the 1950s, THE ISLEY BROTHERS went on to massive success in a decades-spanning career which has seen them produce music in genres from doowop to R&B, funk, soul and rock.


Reaching their third decade as a musical act in the 1970s, The Isley Brothers continued to reinvent themselves with line-up changes and new sounds ranging from 1973's hit rock anthem Summer Breeze to the socially-conscious soul of the title track from their 1976 album HARVEST FOR THE WORLD. HARVEST FOR THE WORLD was a landmark release for the Isley Brothers. While other Soul and Funk acts responded to the commercial pressure to record Disco, the band continued to absorb new influences while steadfastly progressing their sound.

First single WHO LOVES YOU BETTER became a Top 10 R&B smash hit and reached the US Pop charts. Second single HARVEST FOR THE WORLD followed suit, in addition to giving the group their first Top Ten UK hit of the 1970s, re-establishing THE ISLEY BROTHERS as an act with an international audience.

Go for Your Guns
Released 24/10/11. Originally formed as a gospel quartet in the 1950s, THE ISLEY BROTHERS went on to massive success in a decades-spanning career which has seen them produce music in genres from doo-wop to R&B, funk, soul and rock. Reaching their third decade as a musical act in the 1970s, The Isley Brothers continued to reinvent themselves with line-up changes and new sounds ranging from 1973's hit rock anthem Summer Breeze to the socially-conscious soul and funk of their mid-70s albums.

GO FOR YOUR GUNS, released in 1977, reached #1 on the R&B album charts and #6 on the Pop charts and has gone on to become many fans' favourite Isley Brothers album. First single THE PRIDE (PART 1) topped the R&B singles chart and was followed by the funk rock of LIVIN' IN THE LIFE, which reached the Top 5 on the R&B chart and also the US Pop Top 40.

However, the album's true lasting classics are the oft-sampled FOOTSTEPS IN THE DARK (which became the basis for ICE CUBE's IT WAS A GOOD DAY) and VOYAGE TO ATLANTIS, which although only a small R&B hit at the time, later became a Quiet Storm radio classic and a staple of the band's live shows.

Gravity
James Brown, also known as the Godfather of Soul and the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, had a career that would put any others in the business to shame.  He worked tirelessly until his unfortunate demise on Christmas day in 2006 writing, recording and performing some of Soul and Funks true classics. He notched up an impressive seventeen R&B #1’s including It’s A Man’s Man’s World, I Got You (I Feel Good), Make It Funky and Super Bad.

GRAVITY was produced by Dan Hartman (Relight My Fire, Instant Replay, I Dream About You) in 1986 due to the phenomenal success of LIVING IN AMERICA from the soundtrack to Rocky VI.  This single gained the #4 spot in the Pop chart, #10 in the R&B and #5 in the UK.

GRAVITY, the follow up single reached #26 in the R&B chart as well as #93 in the Pop chart.  Also featured on this album is the James Brown classic TURN ME LOOSE, I’M DR. FEELGOOD which is a sure fire dancefloor filler.

HOW DO YOU STOP was the third single release and returned James to the R&B top 10.  It is a minor classic in Brown’s catalogue and was later covered by none other than Joni Mitchell on her 1994 album Turbulent Indigo.
