Cado Belle: Expanded Edition - Cado Belle

Cado Belle: Expanded Edition
•    CADO BELLE were a very slick soul/rock/disco group that hailed from Glasgow, Scotland and are regarded as one of the U.K.'s finest exponents of their genre, along with the likes of The Average White Band, Heatwave and Kokomo, despite only releasing one album and one follow up E.P. Formed in 1974 when the Glasgow bands Joe Cool, boasting incredible vocalist Maggie Reilly, and Up merged to become one tight unit, Cado Belle honed their already seasoned musicianship and began building momentum towards their debut self-titled LP.

•    Released in 1976 on the Anchor Records label the album did not manage to achieve the commercial success it deserved. As a result CADO BELLE is an often overlooked album that more than stands up to the commercially successful albums that it rivalled due to the excellent song writing and complex arrangements (evoking groups like Rose Royce) allied to the emotive and powerful vocals of Maggie Reilly who went on to collaborate with Mike Oldfield and is enjoying a successful solo career to this day.  

•    Stand out tracks on this release are the funky slow jam "Stones Throw From Nowhere,” the only official single from the album, opening track "All Too Familiar,” a slick funky soul number, and ballad "September,” which boasts incredible guitar and saxophones solos and is taken from the Cado Belle EP which features in full as the bonus tracks on this release.

•    BBR is proud to present CADO BELLE. This expanded and newly re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material and is essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Rock and Disco fans out there!

Morning stands on tiptoe
Released on 17/08/09. Though Toni Arthur is probably most widely remembered these days as the vivacious presenter of 1970s children's TV shows Playschool and Playaway, she and her husband Dave first came to prominence during the 1960s British folksong revival.

Released by the Transatlantic label in 1967, Dave and Toni Arthur's debut LP Morning Stands On Tiptoe remains a cornerstone album of the genre, a work of astonishing power and vitality that introduced a whole raft of traditional songs to the thriving British folk club scene. Taken from the original master tapes, this definitive reissue of a seminal album comes complete with a 16-page booklet that includes new liner notes, fresh quotes and a reproduction of Dave and Toni's original notes on each song together with some stunning, previously unpublished photos of the duo.

All My Life
Arthur Prysock (born January 2nd 1929 in Spartanburg, South Carolina) had a long and varied career as a vocalist of high repute, lending his velvet baritone to jazz, blues, R&B, pop and disco, having been inspired by his musical hero Billy Eckstine.
Prysock was discovered by the jump blues band leader Buddy Johnson while living and working in Hartford CT, where he had honed his talents in several groups during his time off. Johnson installed Prysock as his lead male vocalist and they recorded several hits together for Decca in the 40’s before Arthur went solo, touring the chitlin circuit, sometimes accompanied by his brother Red Prysock, (an exhilarating tenor saxophonist) with whom he also recorded. Before long ‘I Didn’t Sleep A Wink Last Night’ gave Arthur his first solo R&B hit on Decca in 1952 charting at a high of #5, and cementing his reputation as a great balladeer.
During the late 50’s and early 60’s Arthur recorded several R&B hits for the Old Town label and in 1965 fulfilled a life-long dream recording with Count Basie, which started a fruitful relationship with the Verve label for the remainder of the decade.
The 1976 album ‘All My Life’ (R&B #36, Pop #153) heralded a return to prominence (and to his old label Old Town) for Prysock and exemplified his dexterity in tackling the new contemporary Philly Soul inspired disco style. The lead single ‘When Love Is New’ (R&B #10, Pop #64), a smooth, percussive disco-soul track with Prysock’s perfectly understated laid-back vocal was penned by legendary Philly International producers and song-writers Gamble & Huff, as was follow up single ‘I Wantcha Baby’ (R&B #43) which tells you everything you need to know about the tone of this underappreciated album. Another stand out is the title track ‘All My Life’, Prysock delivers a Barry White-esque impassioned croon over an up-tempo, uplifting solid dancefloor groove provided by this tracks songwriter, and producer of the album John Davis, along with his Monster Orchestra.
BBR is very proud to bring you ALL MY LIFE completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and bonus content.
ALL MY LIFE, released on CD for the first time, is a must have for all R&B, Disco and Philly Soul fans out there!
