Success - Weather Girls (The)

Success
THE WEATHER GIRLS were Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes. The duo started out in the gospel group NOW (News of the World) before becoming backup singers with Sylvester in the late seventies. They were then named TWO TONS OF FUN and had a run of Disco hits on the Fantasy label.
The group then signed with Columbia Records and changed their name to The Weather Girls in 1982. The newly named duo’s first single ‘IT'S RAINING MEN’ was quickly a massive club hit in the US, topping the Dance/Disco chart in 1982. Their debut album SUCCESS featured the hit single and was a US chart hit. Despite only being a minor pop hit at home, ‘IT’S RAINING MEN’ became an international hit and eventually made number 2 in the UK in 1984. Since then it has become a massive anthem.
SUCCESS also featured the hit title track and ‘I’M GONNA WASH THAT MAN RIGHT OUTA MY HAIR’ which were also successful dance singles. The album demonstrated how strong the women's voices were and exploited their gospel roots.
Cherry Pop is very proud to present SUCCESS expertly remastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and ‘80s Pop fans out there!

Beat Boy
Released 16th February 2009. The first reissue of this seminal 1984 album 'Beat Boy', the third studio album recorded by the pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage.

This is the first time that the album has been available on CD in the UK. This album saw a change in musical direction with the introduction of new members to replace the departures of Midge Ure and Barry Adamson. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band's electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. Visage were formed as supergroup of their day, formed by Steve Strange and ex-Rich Kid Rusty Egan, they recruited Billy Currie and Midge Ure from Ultravox, Dave Formula and Barry Adamson from Magazine and John McGeogh from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Members came and went but the band's core remained as Strange and Egan.

This CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks not included on the original 8 track release. These include extended mixes of the two singles taken from the album, 'Beat Boy' and 'Love Glove.

Part 3
Grammy award winners, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND are one of the most recognizable bands of the 70’s, scoring countless hits and gold and platinum records all over the world during the decade with a style of dance friendly R&B that helped to define the Disco era. They also went on to become the first band since the Beatles to score four #1 Pop singles in a 12-month period.
Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch were introduced to each other in 1972 and after hitting it off, began writing together and formed KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND. They put out two singles on TK Records, ‘Blow Your Whistle’, released in September ’73 and ‘Sound Your Funky Horn’ put out in February of ’74. Both saw moderate success, however it was enough for TK Records to want a follow up single and album.
It was during this time while putting demos together that KC and Richard wrote Rock Your Baby, which would later be recorded by George McCrae and released on his debut album of the same name, giving him a #1 hit across the charts and proving that Casey and Finch had what it took to write hit songs. Their second album cemented this notion going triple platinum with a string of top singles to match.
In 1976, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND would release PART 3 which would go on to become their second triple platinum album. Containing such worldwide hits as (SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE) SHAKE YOUR BOOTY, which reached #1 in both the US Pop and US R&B charts as well as scoring #9 on the US Dance Charts and a top 30 spot in the UK. The follow up, I LIKE TO DO IT also fared well in the US winning itself a top 40 Pop position and climbing all the way to #3 on the US R&B charts and a top 10 Dance spot. I’M YOUR BOOGIE MAN would follow and in typical hit fashion soared to #1 on the US Pop charts, #3 R&B and #9 on the US dance charts while KEEP IT COMIN’ LOVE completed the hit line-up, topping the R&B chart and making the #2 position on the Hot 100.
BBR is thrilled to bring you this wonderfully repackaged and beautifully re-mastered edition of KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND – PART 3 complete with liner notes and added bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND – PART 3 is a must have for all Soul, Funk, R&B and Disco fans out there!
