Born To Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez

Born To Be Alive
PATRICK HERNANDEZ will be remembered for one of the most iconic Eurodisco anthems of the seventies. 1978's hypnotic ‘Born to Be Alive’ reached the top ten all over Europe (including number 10 in the UK) and eventually made number 16 on the American pop chart after it had topped the charts in France, Austria, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden.
The song is the centrepiece of its parent album of the same name which makes its international CD debut on Cherry Pop. The title song is featured here in three mixes.
Hernandez is a Frenchman of Spanish, Austrian and Italian heritage. On a historical note, Madonna performed with Hernandez as a dancer early in her career before achieving superstardom.
BORN TO BE ALIVE also features the follow up hits ‘Back To Boogie’ which made the Dutch charts, and ‘Disco Queen’ which became a Belgian hit and US Disco charter.
BORN TO BE ALIVE is complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and seventies Pop fans out there!

Open Sesame- Expanded Edition

Kool And The Gang needs no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 80s and have sold over 70 million albums world wide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as Summer Madness, Get Down On It, Celebration and who could forget that slammin funk monster that featured so heavily in Quentin Tarantino's cult flick - Pulp Ficton; Jungle Boogie. Kool & The Gang was started by two brothers, Robert Kool Bell and Ronald Bell along with five friends in 1964. After some time playing the growing Jersey City Jazz coffeehouse scene and spots like Café Wha? in New York City, performing alongside other yet-to-be famous talents of the time, Kool & The Gang were signed to Redd Coach Records in 1968 and a year later were recording for the small subsidiary label, De-Lite Records. The 1970s was a busy and fruitful decade for the group, with Kool & The Gang, releasing twelve studio albums, two live albums and appearing on numerous occasions across the charts. 1976 saw Ricky Westfield leave the group to form his own band, North East South West, and would also mark the end of collaborations between the original seven members of KOOL & THE GANG. Later that year the group released Open Sesame which features the up-tempo single Superband which gained a top 20 R&B chart spot and the title track which reached #6 R&B and #55 on the US pop charts and soared to #13 on the Dance chart and was later featured in the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever.
