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!

Relight My Fire: Expanded Edition
    Daniel Earl Hartman a.k.a. DAN HARTMAN was an American musician, singer, songwriter and producer who hailed from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is best known for his disco hits ‘Instant Replay,’ ‘Love Sensation’ and ‘Relight My Fire’ as well as penning the second biggest hit for the Edgar Winter Group, ‘Free Ride,’ of which he was a member. Having schooled himself playing bass and writing songs for his first band The Legends (which also included his brother Dave) Hartman joined the Edgar Winter Group and appeared on three of their albums before going solo in 1976.

    After initially releasing the magnificently titled promotional album "Who Is Dan Hartman and Why is Everyone Saying Wonderful Things About Him?,” which was a retrospective on his career until that point, Hartman scored big in 1978 with the #1 Disco smash ‘Instant Replay’ (from the album of the same name) which also crossed over to the U.S. And U.K. Pop charts.

    In 1979 Hartman released RELIGHT MY FIRE (R&B #67, Pop #169), and again hit the top of the Disco charts with the title track, a bonefide disco classic that featured Hartman's friend Loleatta Holloway on vocals and is preceded by the understated "Vertigo” which perfectly sets your anticipation before the main event.  ‘Relight My Fire’ was subsequently covered by U.K. boy band Take That featuring Lulu, who took their version to the top of the U.K. Pop charts in 1993.

    Throughout the LP Hartman keeps the party energy in full flow and on the opener ‘Hands Down’ we are treated to Stevie Wonder and Edgar Winter trading licks on harmonica and sax respectively.  ‘Just For Fun’ has a very solid syncopated groove in contrast to the tone of the lyric and exemplifies Hartman's production style. On closer ‘Free Ride’ Hartman shows off his deft production skills by taking the hit he wrote for the Edgar Winter Group and changing the rhythmic emphasis to take the track firmly into the dance floor realm.

    Hot Shot Records/BBR is proud to present RELIGHT MY FIRE. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with a foreword from mixer John Luongo, extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

    This BBR/Hot Shot Records re-master is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!

Save Me: Expanded Edition
•    SILVER CONVENTION started life in Munich in 1974 as Silver Bird Convention when German songwriting and producing partners Michael Kunzte and Sylvester Levay released the single ‘Save Me’ on Jupiter Records, enlisting three session singers to take care of the minimal vocal refrain on the track. With the "Bird” soon dropped from the acts name ‘Save Me’ became an international Disco hit charting at #30 in the U.K. and across the board in the U.S. at #10 Disco and #103 Pop, heralding the start of continued success throughout the 70's.

•    With a settled line up of Ramona Wolf, Penny McLean and Linda G. Thompson as Silver Convention the group released this, their eponymously titled debut LP (titled "Save Me” outside of Germany) to great acclaim as the Euro-Disco sound made waves across the world with Giorgio Morodor, also based in Munich, surfing the highest.

•    "Save Me” opens the album with its propulsive rhythms, sweeping horns and strings, yearning vocals and soulful sax solos. Follow up single "Fly, Robin, Fly,” a minimal mid-tempo dancer with a very satisfying piano motif and intricate strings, gained heavy rotation on U.S. radio as well as in the clubs, eclipsing the success of ‘Save Me’ by hitting the top spot across the Billboard R&B, Disco and Pop charts and again charting top 30 in the U.K., as well as taking home the Grammy for best R&B Instrumental Performance. Other stand out tracks are the single ‘Always Another Girl’ , ‘Tiger Baby’ UK #41 and ‘I Like It’ which show off the lush, string-laden Euro sound with Levay's arrangements tipping the hat to the likes of Gamble & Huff and Barry White.

•    Reaching #1 and #10 on the U.S. R&B and Pop album charts respectively SILVER CONVENTION (Save Me) has become a very influential album and is rightly regarded as a dance classic in many circles.

•    BBR are proud to present this newly remastered and repackaged expanded edition.

•    This package features the million selling single Troglodyte (Cave Man)’ an absolute phenomenon of its time, and the "Phase Two” album features ‘Say Leroy (The Creature From The Black Lagoon Is Your Father)’ which was very much in the same vein as ‘Troglodyte.’
