Platinum Hook: Expanded Edition - Platinum Hook

Platinum Hook: Expanded Edition
•    PLATINUM HOOK was a slick R&B/Funk combo who released three albums on Motown between 1978 and 1983. Having signed to the label for their debut eponymous release in 1978, PLATINUM HOOK offered up a smooth and engaging R&B/Funk sound that more than matched their label mates and other rivals of the time.

•    Produced by keyboardist, songwriter and arranger Greg Wright, a mainstay of the Motown organization through the 70's having worked with Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Thelma Houston, Switch and Jermaine Jackson, PLATINUM HOOK's debut is an album of great depth and variety proving that the polished and professional studio tricks of the time still left room for plenty of grit.

•    PLATINUM HOOK opens with the tight club groove ‘Bittersweet,’ a horn and synth led track that introduces the groups lead vocalists Tina Renee Stanford and Stephen Daniels to blistering effect. Track 2 is an excellent cover of Shotgun's mid-tempo funk jam from the previous year, "Hotline.” ‘'Til I Met You’ and ‘Lover What You've Done (To Me)’ are both smooth soul ballads that still bring the funk into the rhythms and help round out the albums overall sound. ‘Standing On The Verge (Of Getting It On),’ a cover of the Funkadelic classic, can hold its head up high to the original. Both ‘Hooked For Life’ and ‘Gotta Find A Woman’ are soulful mid-tempo grooves with an emphasis on the slick harmonies. Closing track ‘City Life’ is a full on high-tempo Disco/Soul number leaving you breathless, but gasping for more.

•    BBR is very proud to present PLATINUM HOOK, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. Essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Funk and Disco fans.

Get Up And Boogie: Expanded Edition
•    SILVER CONVENTION started life in Munich in 1974 as Silver Bird Convention when German song writing 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 heralding the start of continued success throughout the 70's.

•    GET UP AND BOOGIE was the group’s second album released in 1976 and capitalized on the success of their debut, which is also available on BBR. Simply titled "Silver Convention” for the US market, GET UP AND BOOGIE confirmed the group’s reputation for very catchy, accessible dance floor music that was at the forefront of the Euro-disco movement.

•    The first single and opening title track ‘Get Up And Boogie,’ well known as the groups most famous track, took them back to the top end of the charts, as well as being a big hit in the clubs, due to its easy disco style and simple lyrical refrain. Reaching #5 on both the US R&B and Disco charts, as well as #2 and #7 in the US and UK Pop charts respectively it was one of the biggest global disco tracks of the year and still endures to this day. Second single ‘No, No, Joe,’  a funky mid-tempo track with trademark strings also charted at #34 R&B and #14 Disco in the US.

•    Other standout tracks are the classy ‘San Francisco Hustle,’ the down tempo reggae influenced ‘The Boy With The Ooh-La-La,’ the funky, string drenched, slow jam ‘You Turned Me On (But You Can't Turn Me Off)’ and closing ballad ‘Thank You, Mr. D.J.’

•    BBR is very proud to present GET UP AND BOOGIE, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. Essential listening for all Funk, Disco, Dance and Pop fans.
