FLM - Mel & Kim

FLM
Released on 18/10/10. One of the best-remembered acts of the 80s, Cockney sisters Mel & Kim Appleby instantly conquered dance floors, charts and hearts around the world with their style, personality and a string of perfect pop anthems. Their classic album "F.L.M." is now given a much anticipated Deluxe Edition 2CD reissue on Cherry Pop.

Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, the album reached #3 on its original release in April 1987, going platinum in the UK and topping the charts internationally with sales in excess of three million copies. "F.L.M." features three UK Top Ten hits Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend), the classic #1 Respectable and the title track. Digitally re-mastered and compiled from original master tapes archived at Abbey Road and Pete Waterman's PWL Studios, this release features no less than nineteen exclusive bonus tracks across two discs, including the 1988 Top Ten hit, That's The Way It Is and its self-penned B-side, You Changed My Life. Both tracks are included alongside the "F.L.M." album for the first time ever.

Kim Appleby has generously contributed an exclusive commentary to this release. The extensive booklet also features a reversible cover, an illustrated discography, additional photos and brand new sleeve notes from PWL consultant Tom Parker. Mel & Kim s debut single, Showing Out, hit #3 in November 1986, and in February 1987 Respectable became the first Stock Aitken Waterman composition to top the charts. Combining a streetwise pop sensibility with transatlantic house grooves, Mel & Kim became a global sensation. But at the height of their fame, Mel was diagnosed with cancer. Facing relentless media attention with dignity and characteristic humour while she underwent treatment, the duo released a brand new single in February 1988 That's The Way It Is.

Tragically, Mel's health deteriorated and she passed away in January 1990, aged just 23. "F.L.M." is the latest Hit Factory classic to be reissued on Cherry Pop, following a host of popular releases from Big Fun, Boy Krazy, Hazell Dean, Lonnie Gordon, Haywoode, the London Boys, Princess, Sinitta, Mandy Smith and Sonia.

Three D
Little can be said about The Sound Of Philadelphia or Philadelphia International Records without mentioning The Three Degrees. This trio may have had more than 12 different women represent the group so far, but they remain one of the most memorable female vocal acts of the last 40+ years.

In 1979, The Three Degrees released their second album for Ariola Records, 3D, produced by Grammy Award winner Giorgio Moroder fresh from winning an Academy Award for his full movie score on Midnight Express and fellow Grammy Award and Academy Award winner Harold Faltermeyer. The album featured such hits as the fantastic driving beat of the US Dance hits JUMP THE GUN and SET ME FREE and a UK Top Ten hit, the hugely popular sweet and soulful, MY SIMPLE HEART. Other notable singles include the gorgeous funky Earth, Wind & Fire inspired ballad STARLIGHT and WITHOUT YOU.

BBR is proud to present this newly re-mastered and beautifully re-packaged expanded edition of THREE D, complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with group members and Ariola Records President Robin Blanchflower along with added bonus tracks. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, this BBR Re-Master is a must have for all Soul, Disco and Girl-Group Pop fans.

Into The Dragon Plus
Bomb The Bass exploded into the UK singles charts with their debut single Beat Dis in February 1988, reaching number 2. Initially little was known about the people behind the record as it appeared from nowhere and was released on an unknown label, Mister-Ron Records, as it turned out an imprint of Rhythm King Records. Reputedly costing £500 to record Beat Dis was a record of moment, marking the shift away from expensive recording studios to more homemade record making, utilising the increasingly affordable sampling technology that was at the heart of the band's output.

The band went on to produce 3 further albums (with another one on the way in 2010) that refused to be formula or predictable. The development of the sound/direction is a lasting feature of their output.
