HANG TOGETHER was released in 1980 and reached #38 in the UK, leading the way for further success with later albums. DON’T TELL ME TELL HER was their first single release and reached #44 stateside.

However in the UK USE IT UP AND WEAR IT OUT (the original B-Side) was later released and became their biggest hit reaching UK #1. This song still receives a lot of radio play to this day. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT was the second single release from HANG TOGETHER and gained the #6 spot in the UK. This song was also covered by Tindersticks in 1999 HANG TOGETHER gained the #36 position in UK and helped the album into the top 40. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, HANG TOGETHER is a must for all Soul, Disco and Funk fans out there!

Press:-


‘Criminally ignored in their US homeland where their only top 40 hit was native New Yorker – Odyssey were more than one hit wonders in the UK, putting together a run of impressive an polished hits in the R&B/dance vein. Now remastered and expanded, Hang Together was the first of three consecutive albums by the group to crack top 40 her, and arguably the best. Music Week, May 2012

"Native New Yorker labelled them a disco act but producer Sandy Linzer widened the trio's appeal on this 1980 LP with Lillian Lopez's beautiful vocal on 'If You're Looking For A Way Out'". MOJO, September 2012

Eau De Vie
Len Coley and Roddy Harris formed DELEGATION in Birmingham, during the mid 70’s later adding Jamaican born Ricky Bailey whose voice was to give them added flair on lead helping them to compete in the competitive UK Soul Market.
The Group worked with one of the UK’s most prolific hit makers of the 70’s and 80’s, Ken Gold, responsible for masterminding The Real Thing as well as writing and producing for artists such as The Nolans, Liquid Gold and Billy Ocean who secured a deal with State Records after which the group released a few UK singles with moderate success.
However, when Oh Honey hit the US charts in 1979 it scored an incredibly impressive top 50 US Pop chart position and smoothly grooved all the way to #6 in the US R&B charts helping the album enter the Billboard Hot 200 and make #8 on the US R&B album chart.
DELEGATION later moved to Ariola Records while changing their lineup with Len Coley being replaced with Bruce Dunbar, a Broadway Musical singer who starred in the musical "Hair" before joining the band, bringing with him his captivating falsetto, so well suited to DELEGATION’s smooth funky sound. Once they had drafted in the arranging talents of keyboard virtuoso, Lynton Naismith, DELEGATION went to work on 'Eau De Vie' which would go on to become their highest selling album achieving a Gold Record status in 1980.
Notable songs on this album include the groovy first single, PUT A LITTLE LOVE ON ME full of raw Funk bass lines and smooth Lynton Naismith organ paired with dazzling and driving yet subtle guitar licks giving it a slight Calypso groove. This winning formula was continued into the second single YOU AND I, with the guitar coming forward and the group really showcasing their vocal chemistry from the opening. DELEGATION turned up the disco for HEARTACHE No 9 adding a powerful string and horn section to a track that is currently receiving an overdue renaissance on the UK club scene.
BBR is very proud to bring you EAU DU VIE, completely remastered and repackaged complete with liner notes and extended bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, EAU DU VIE is a must have for all Soul and Funk and Jazz fans out there!

1981 would see the release of DELEGATION II, which created such hits as the single I WANTCHA BACK, a low tempo, funky bass line driven Disco single. IN THE NIGHT stepped up the heat, again driven by the incredible talents of Jon Plotel on bass and the Lynton Naiff arranged string section. SINGING closed out the single releases, a big production number with some great performances by Jon Plotel, Lynton Naiff, Robert J. Ahwai on guitar and Kofi Aivor on percussion and of course the incredible horn section that feature throughout the album.
