Turnin' On: Expanded Edition - High Inergy

Turnin' On: Expanded Edition
•    HIGH INERGY were an R&B and Soul girl group from Pasadena, Ca. who signed with Berry Gordy's legendary Motown Records on his self-named Gordy subsidiary in 1977 and went on to have a strong career chalking up nine R&B hits and recording eight albums.

•    Discovered by Berry Gordy's sister Gwen Gordy Fuqua the group consisted of singing sisters Vernessa and Barbara Mitchell, both blessed with stunning soul voices, alongside Linda Howard and Michelle Martin who were primarily dancers. Modelled on Motown's successful girl groups they were named after The Supremes 1976 album "High Energy.”

•    TURNIN' ON was the group’s debut album released in 1977 and they hit the ground running with immediate chart success reaching #6 R&B and #28 Pop. The album was bolstered by the success of the first single ‘You Can't Turn Me Off (In The Middle Of Turning Me On),’ a lush, mid-tempo, beautifully sung and orchestrated, sensual groove which ticks all the boxes of classic mid-seventies smooth soul, peaked at #2 R&B and #12 Pop. Follow up single and opening track ‘Love Is All You Need,’ a dynamic funky work out which adds arresting harmonies and chopping clavinet to the group’s soundscape, returned them to the R&B Top 20.

•    Stand out album cuts on this impressive debut are the feel good dance floor numbers ‘Some Kinda Magic’ and ‘Could This Be Love,’ tougher R&B cuts like ‘Searchin' (I've Got To Find My Love)’ and ‘High School,’ and the breezy ballad ‘Let Me Get Close To You.’

•    BBR is very proud to present the international CD debut of TURNIN' ON, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. TURNIN' ON is essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Pop and Disco fans.

Nice And Slow: Expanded Edition
•    Locksley Alphonso Green, aka JESSE GREEN, was a Jamaican singer and multi-instrumentalist who spanned the genres from Reggae through to Disco during his well respected career. Growing up in the St. James parish of the famed island Green became enthralled with the music he heard from the various sound systems in the area, in particular the sound system headed by Count Barrett.

•    During the 60's Green sang vocals with Jamaican band The Pioneers and in the 70's toured internationally with the great Jimmy Cliff as his drummer before embarking on a solo career in 1976.

•    NICE AND SLOW was Green's debut solo album and was released on the EMI record label in 1976 to high acclaim, despite not garnering the commercial success the album deserved. As was the burgeoning trend at the time Green appropriated the fledgling Disco and Soul sounds of the mid 70's and scored a massive club hit with the album’s title track and opener which reached #1 on the U.S. Disco charts and #17 on the U.K. Pop charts. The second single from the album ‘Flip’ followed ‘Nice And Slow’ on to the dance floor peaking at #17 on the Disco chart in 1977. Both tracks have a sultry sweet soul sound on top of a solid bottom end groove.

•    Green's Jamaican roots are still very much in evidence on the album, especially on ‘Flip’ and album track ‘You Came, You Saw, You Conquered’ which both exemplify the singers spirited vocal style. Other highlights are the ballad ‘The Greatest Love’ and the superb ‘You Are The Star,’ a propulsive, jazz influenced groove.

•    BBR is proud to present NICE AND SLOW. This expanded and newly re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

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.’
